    Blood and Gold: A Journey of Shadows

    £12.99

    Sir Walter Scott: A Life in Story

    £9.99
    Walter Scott's novels and poems reveal his view of history and the influences that made him, especially the stories of his native Borders and the exploits of his ancestors. Eileen Dunlop looks afresh at Scott the writer, and Scott the man.

    Scott-land: The Man Who Invented a Nation

    £12.99
    Stuart Kelly's biography of Sir Walter Scott defies classification in terms of genre. Rather than a literary biography, or critical study, it is a personal examination of the sometimes overwhelming affect Scott has had on Scottish identity at large, and on how his legacy affects the very act of writing in Scotland.

    Edward Kane and the Parlour Maid Murderer

    £9.99
    'A book with a bounce.' Comic, Dickensian murder mystery set in Victorian Edinburgh.

    Hamnet

    £8.99
    Recommended by Nick Barley, our Festival Director.

    Edinburgh-based writer Maggie O'Farrell has produced her finest novel to date with Hamnet, and it turns out to be remarkably topical too.

    Hamnet is set in Stratford in the late-16th century, at a time when bubonic plague is on the rise across England. The central character in the book, Hamnet, is one of Shakespeare's three children. His twin sister Julia has fallen ill and he is desperately trying to find his mother Agnes.

    Alongside a story of sickness, it's a way of looking at Shakespeare's emerging success as a playwright and his guilt as an absent father. O'Farrell's exquisite depiction of motherly love and her ability to construct a compelling narrative are masterful in this short but deeply moving novel.
