From the reviews of the 1997 volume: 'As a snapshot of the kind of Scottish talent around, this collection is unmatched.' Press and Journal 'Scottish writing is enjoying a surge of popularity, mainly due to Irvine Welsh and Alan Warner, and the associations drawn between their work and rave culture. Not that anyone has anything against either author, but it's encouraging not to find their names among the contributors to this volume - there are plenty more salmon in the Spey. Very well told tales... Michel Faber is to be commended... G.A. Pickin's wonderful, very moving story... exceptional quality.' Time Out
