Summertime in the Deep North

August 8, 2003

For not being terribly thrilled with my own rustic ancesteral homeland, it’s strange that I’m so completely enamoured of The Deep North, a blog recounting the day-to-day life of a pair of authors living in the wilds of remote northern Scotland.

I don’t recall how I found it, but each new post is a complete treat—if I could ever figure out just who these people are, I’d be buying their books too; the descriptions of the charming and eccentric people who wander in and out, and the minutia of life in the highlands is a wonderful and welcome break from the day.

Who knows, maybe it’s just the wee bit of Scot in my background coming oot…

(Maybe it’s more than wee… I seem to recall The Genealogy Aunt saying we go back to some Scottish Clan or another… I’ve got her epic tome tracing the Lawson clan around here somewhere… hmmm…)

    I have the pleasure of hosting The Deep North, so I’m assuming you got there through my blog: unless, of course, it was the other way around.

    I’ve never checked whether the Northern Professor and the Lady Novelist are travelling the web incognito, but you could do worse than ask them.

    You could, however, find yourself shelling out for a quite frightening number of books (four novels, a book of novellas, a handful of academic books, some anthologies and the like, if memory serves, with some small press publications to boot). Oh, and Dr Biswell’s book will be out soon as well.
