Issue 144 (Sept 2019) of our stunning quarterly magazine has been sent out to Dorothy Dunnett Society members.
Dorothy Dunnett’s talent as an artist is the subject of a couple of the articles in this issue, which features her portrait of Archie Abernethy on the front cover, said to be the only painting she made of a character from her books.
This issue features transcriptions of the talks given at this year’s Oxford Day. We consider the part played by Philippa as a supporting character to Lymond and we look at the role of maps in the novels.

Today marks the release of the brand new House of Niccolò audiobooks in the UK! Read by John Banks, they offer around 214 hours of listening pleasure. Listen to a sample of Niccolò Rising, the first book in the 8 volume series. We love what we’ve heard so far.
We have heard that the UK republication of the House of Niccolò series in paperback may be delayed from the planned 5th September date, and probably by more than a few days. Our contact is off on their holidays for a fortnight, and we won’t hear more until they are back.
