Product description


This magazine features a previously unpublished short story, "The Man on the Shore" by George MacKay Brown, as well as poems and an interview. Brown returns to the setting of the Orkney Islands in the story. His theme is the stability of the land for successive generations of islanders. Also poems bring to life tinkers and fishermen. The magazine also offers a celebration of Brown and his work by Gerry Cambridge, Stewart Conn and Margaret Tait. William Sharpton's interview with Brown dates from shortly before his death in which he discusses the elements and the people that influenced his work. "Chapman 84" also provides an imagined explantion of the historical relationship between England and Scotland in "Taming the Scots" by Malcom Lobban, and a rewriting of the Samson and Delilah tale from Delilah's point-of-view by Marion Arnott. Poetry from, amongst others, Valerie Thorton, Philip Whidden and Sam Gilliland alongside the usual reviews of poetry, fiction, pamphlets and theatre productions is also included. The issue is illustrated by drawings and etchings from Alfons Bytautas, Emilio Coia, Trish Edwards, Brown's colleague "Spike" and others.
