I just finished re-reading Lymond for the third time at least and found you all subsequently. Nice to know you exist because here, so few people know about Dorothy Dunnett's work. I have a love of Scotland now from my readings, including watching shows like "Shetland." I wish someone would try to translate Lymond to the screen.
Be well.

Thank you for reaching out to us Kara! We have many Dorothy Dunnett Society members in the US and there are local gatherings every November on International Dorothy Dunnett Day. Keep an eye on our special IDDD page which will be updated nearer the time of this year's events.

I have read L ymond and Niccolo more times than I can remember, I know I am not alone. Spoiled for all other authors.. No-one measures up. Help me.. Need to come meet you all and just talk and tell stories for days and day s!

I came across Lady Dunnett in early 2000, during a search for historical fiction. Having been a fan of Sabatini, Dumas and Bernard Cornwell I came across Phillipa Gregory and Dorothy Dunnett. Gregory left me flat and bored. I then read Queens' Play. I was hooked on this rich and wonderful character called Francis Crawford of Lymond. Since then I have read the Lymond and House of Niccolo twice (On the third reading of Niccolo, and re reading Lymond next.) I have recently introduced Niccolo to another friend and she is hooked. I am happy to have found my tribe. I am also a member of the Pittsburgh Dorothy Dunnett reading Group, and we recently celebrated IDDD 2018 together.

I fell in love with Francis Crawford many years ago, and still re-read the chronicles almost every year. The complexities are fantastic. Then I discovered Niccolo and another world. I have just finished reading King Hereafter, and like everyone else, am quite speechless with admiration for the depth of her characters. This is the one book I have struggled to find .... all the others are on my well loved bookshelves ready for me to pick up and lose myself in.
