Tinto Chiel’s List

*Suggested corrective reading for Instant Independence of Mind or Five Mental Steps to a New Scotland*



“Books were even produced to help Scots avoid polluting their writing with repellent Scots expressions, hence the appearance of works like Scotticisms Arranged and Corrected by Alexander Mackie (I have a copy but, being a thrawn type, use it to back-engineer my prose at times to give a gamey Scottish flavour as a simple act of defiance against the English juggernaut)”
Tinto Chiel

Some History and some Neil Gunn  from Hackalumpoff


Some Scottish History since 1707 from Nana


Some Modern Scottish Fiction from Scots Renewables

*None of these are anything to do with independence – though all the authors are pro-indy*
