The Devil and the Giro Carl MacDougall The Scottish Short Story

The Scottish story has its roots in an oral tradition where stories were told to entertain. It is a tradition that has not diminished over the years and indeed there is today a body of young writers in the forefront of contemporary literature whose narrative voice is as compelling as that of their illustrious predecessors. This collection includes stories from all the major Scottish writers both famous and unsung. Hogg, Stevenson, Conan Doyle, Hugh MacDiarmid, Muriel Spark, James Kelman, and Alasdair Gray are but a few of the 50 contributors. The anthology encompasses many examples of the themes in which Scottish writers have always excelled, most notably in that archetypal twinning of opposites where the ordinary meets the fantastic, man encounters the Devil, or the real and the supernatural converge. This is the stuff of the ancient storytellers and the tradition has persisted to this day where the hard reality of urban existence still involves coming to terms with life and death.
