Damage Land

New Scottish Gothic Fiction
An anthology of stories edited by

The newest and most talented of Scottish writers have plumbed their depths, creating a set of demons for a modern age.

Demons like Ali Smith's neo-Nazi, Alison Armstrong's transvestite serial-killer, Brian McCabe's abominable neck-boil, James Robertson's mutant mouse, Toni Davidson's confused sado-masochist. Be frozen by Maggie O'Farrell's quiet touch or appalled at Andrew Murray Scott's putrescent landscape. Experience fork and knife disorder with Jackie Kay or receive sinister letters from Helen Lamb.

The range of visions and voices collected in this book -­ all investigating the heart of darkness, all written with a chilling skill - are enough to confirm Scotland as one of the most imaginative homes of world Gothic.
