Sir Walter Scott introduced the world to the new genre of historical fiction with his Waverly Novels, much praised by Balzac amongst others. So our new writing is continuing this tradition. Complementing this is a selection of reasonably priced ePub versions of some of the great works of literature of the last century and some well loved Scottish classics.
A provocative list of books from Shakespeare to genetics; materialism and racism tackled head-on. Look out for a new edition of The Directors Cut next year with four new essays on the Comedies and an entertaining look at the art of directing in a separate volume Go Direct by Michael Bogdanov. Also some startling new titles on physics will be published in time for next year’s Edinburgh Science festival.
We are publishing a selection of classics throughout the year for download to Kindles, iPads or other e-readers together with eBook versions of existing titles. They can be purchased from £1.49 from this site or form iBookstore for use with iPads, iPhones etc. They are also available on Amazon for Kindle users. We will be continuing to offer selected titles free at the beginning of each month via The Scottish Daily Mail from March 2013 onwards.
The list of Scottish plays now runs to some sixty titles from the 1970s to date by over twenty-five authors and covers a diverse range of themes and styles. Many of the publications include introductions by the authors, sometimes very personal and always deepening the understanding of the play and its origins.
