About the Book
Jim Taylor was born in Glasgow in 1962 and, after travels across Australasia and Southeast Asia, spent his latter years in Shetland. His writing appeared in magazines and anthologies, such as Chapman, Gutter, Edinburgh Review, New Writing Scotland, Rebel Inc and Northwords Now, as well as various blogs. The finely-crafted short stories in this collection boast a rich array of characters, viewpoints and geographical settings, and are rendered with a stark realism accompanied by a biting wit that is simultaneously lyrical, warm and sympathetic. This is a limited edition collection of Jim's stories compiled specially for his family and friends. Please note that I have set the book price as free, therefore the prices listed above are Blurb's printing fees only. Special thanks to Paul Ironmonger, another of Jim's friends from Castle Douglas, for generously helping to make this collection happen.
