Event description

Description

The year was 2000 when Matthew Fitt’s But n Ben A-Go-Go arrived, and took the language of Scots and energised it with a narrative that crackles and fizzes with life. In his cyberpunk thriller, the year is 2090 and global flooding has left most of a distinctly unbonnie future-Scotland under water. But n Ben A-Go-Go continues to raise
timely questions about how we communicate, with the world and with ourselves.

Tim Armstrong has brought the counter-culture of his native Seattle to shape Air Cuan Dubh Drilseach (On a Glittering Black Sea) the first sci-fi novel in Gaelic. Taking Gaelic into an advanced autocratic and hyper-capitalist future, Armstrong shifts between whimsy and menace, with elements of space-opera adventure, romance, and rock-band road trip all mixed together.

Come and hear the Scots and Gaelic languages go places they’ve never ventured before, in this very special event.
