    Christopher Brookmyre’s Pandaemonium Book Launch at The Mitchell Library Theatre

    Christopher Brookmyre - Scottish Crime Fiction Novelist

    There is so much to say and so much going on at The Mitchell Library in Glasgow that I will, Mairiuna, stay in the building for another blog post.

    Especially so, that there will be a Book Launch this month in the Mitchell Library Theatre, for Pandaemonium, the latest book written by Christopher Brookmyre, well known Scottish crime fiction novelist.

    Interestingly enough, Christopher Brookmyre’s fifth novel  Boiling a Frog won the Sherlock Award for Best Comic Detective in 2000.

    As you recall, Christopher  Brookmyre was featured on our listing of Glaswegians crime fiction authors which had chosen Glasgow as the setting of their plot.

    Since we haven’t yet read any of his books, we must inscribe the following titles on our Scottish crime fiction authors’  reading list, which, by the way, gets longer each day that goes by!

    Eleven more to add 🙂

    * Quite Ugly One Morning, 1996
    * Country of the Blind, 1997
    * Not the End of the World, 1998
    * One Fine Day in the Middle of the Night, 1999
    * Boiling a Frog, 2000
    * A Big Boy did it and Ran Away, 2001

    * Be My Enemy (Or Fuck This For a Game of Soldiers), 2004
    * All Fun and Games until Somebody Loses an Eye, 2005

    * The Attack of the Unsinkable Rubber Ducks, 2007
    * A Snowball In Hell, 2008

    Is there a way to read during sleep Mairiuna ?

    Pandaemonium synopsis:
    The senior pupils of St Peter’s High School are on retreat to a secluded outdoor activity centre, coming to terms with the murder of a fellow pupil through the means you would expect: counselling, contemplation, candid discussion and even prayer – not to mention booze, drugs, clandestine liaisons and as much partying as they can get away with.

    Not so far away, the commanders of a top-secret military experiment, long-since spiralled out of control, fear they may have literally unleashed the forces of Hell.

    Two very different worlds are on a collision course, and will clash in an earthly battle between science and the supernatural, philosophy and faith, civilisation and savagery.

    The bookies are offering evens.

    Another title from the above list strikes my attention: Attack of The Unsinkable Rubber Ducks.

    Book synopsis goes like this:

    Do you believe in ghosts?

    Do we really live on in some conscious form after we die, and is that form capable of communicating with the world of the living?
    Aye, right.

    Ghosts? No need to tell me more.

    I’m heading to the bookshop right now 🙂

    Catch you later!
