They say it rains a lot in Scotland, but it's been all sun here. Edinburgh Castle (fun to go there thinking of "Judas Cradle" from Get'em Young), the Christmas Market just opened by the Scott Memorial on Princes Street, Dunkeld-- the Scots' ancient capitol-- Perth, Crieff, Storm and Arthur's barn, and the green green hills dotted by many sheep. Thanks Margaret for coming from Fairbanks, Ak to make it so fun. Glasgow is next (after the trip south, see below).
Thanks especially to the genius indie booksellers in Edinburgh for inviting me in to sign books this week. Portobello Bookshop (hi there, Helena, Elsa and Elena, thanks for the cab), Blackwells (hello Chris J, I hope you like the book), Toppings (thanks Rachel of the feminism and science books dept), Golden Hare (hey, Polly, the lunch rec was great,) and coming soon to Typewronger.
