A Stuga On the Cusp of the Orust Riviera, tucked away next to a hobbit hole in the woods.

The Fanatic - James Robertson The Fanatic by James Robertson is about a young preacher, Maister James Mitchel M.A., who was given the boot by order of the ‘traitor of traitors’, James Sharp. The year is 1677 and he lies in a stinking cell in the prison of Bass Rock off the east coast of Scotland, fifteen miles from Edinburgh.Skip to Edinburgh 1997 and we have Hugh who is in need of a ghost, one that would appear down a half-lit close at ten o’clock at night and have people jumping out of their skins.Hew McKail is mentioned (priority pages 96-99 and then dotted around less graphically) and I have no idea just how many ‘great’s go before ‘grandfather’. The title of the book is a fair description.
