Talking Witches, Prosecco, & Bloody Scotland

Alex Gray & Lin Anderson
My thanks to Alex Gray & Waterstones Newton Mearns for respectively chairing and arranging a very enjoyable The Special Dead event yesterday evening.

As good friends, who came up with the idea of starting the Bloody Scotland festival all those years ago, over too many glasses of Prosecco, it was a great opportunity for Alex and I to discuss The Special Dead and my current writing, and also the wider UK and international crime-writing scene.

Topic covered included Wicca, University of Glasgow's Ferguson Collection of books and manuscripts on alchemy and the occult, and the studies of the paranormal conducted by my old Professor, the late Archie Roy.

Some of the audience confirmed that they had come to Bloody Scotland previously, and Alex and I encouraged everyone to come along this year (11-13th September), discussing highlights from past years, and covering some of the must-see events for 2015.

Spookily, the Primovera Bistro, where last night's event was held, seemed to already know about the special powers of Prosecco ...
