ImagiNation: Stories of Scotland’s Future is an ambitious and entertaining look at the future through the eyes and ears of over 30 Scottish writers. It features comic book, short story, poetry and drama in a unique and compelling collection of new work. At times hilarious, and always thought-provoking, the anthology provides and imaginative perspective on how the country might look as we move through the new century.
Established writers such as James Robertson, Alan Warner, Raman Mundair and Ronald Frame rub shoulders and cross genres with exciting new talent such as Mark McNay, Kirsty Logan and Allan Radcliffe.
‘All these tales adhere to James Joyce’s notion of the short story as epiphany…Together, they show a bright way forward for Scottish literature’. (The Herald)
