Event: Victorian Detectives!

We are getting close to the weekend when Bloody Scotland Book Festival will take place in Stirling. As we have mentioned before, Bloody Scotland will be the first International Crime Writing festival in Scotland, and it promises to be very exciting!

The weekend is full with interesting events not to be missed. Our project, published by students in collaboration with Merchiston Publishing, will have its own event on Sunday 16 September 2012, at the Stirling Highland Hotel.
The event is called Victorian Detectives and will be chaired by Professor Alistair McCleery, head of Merchiston Publishing and the Scottish Centre for the Book. As special guests, we will have Alanna Knight, who wrote the introduction for Detective McLevy’s Casebook and has her own successful victorian detective book series, and David Ashton, who has taken the McLevy character and is about to write the fourth novelisation of the short stories, as well as having written several BBC Radio series based on James McLevy. They both will discuss the influence McLevy has had on their own writing as well as crime-writing today in general.

Please, join us in a very special moment for our project! Prices are £7/£6 (concession), but it is possible to get some discount if you buy several tickets across the weekend. You can book online and find the full programme and detailed information here.
