No :( I'm horrible at keeping up with event news.

Love `em all-Whit,Crow Road & Espedair St favourite `real(ish) world` titles-love all the SF ones:- whats not to like about books that feature planet sized space ships with delightfully eclectic names controlled by utterly barking mad AI`s-He and Ian Rankin are the two finest authors to come out of Fife

Hi Nick! :P

This may seem like a silly question, but are there any other authors who come from Fife? :P

PS: As I don't do text speak, what does ATB mean? :?
