Competition Time: A Method Actor’s Guide to Jekyll and Hyde

Thanks to the very good people at Birlinn Books I have two lovely signed hardback copies of Kevin MacNeil’s excellent new novel A Method Actor’s Guide to Jekyll and Hyde to give away. You can find my review of the novel here Dr Jekyll and Mr MacNeil… but if you’re in a rush and want to know if it’s worthwhile entering, take it as read.

To have a chance of winning simply answer this question: Q: In R.L.Stevenson’s original story, what are the first names respectively of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde?

To enter e-mail your answer to and the winners will be the first two correct answers pulled from my old bunnitt. The closing date for entries is Saturday the 18th December and I’ll announce the winners on that date. Best of luck to all.

This competition also marks the opening of the Scots Whay Hae! Local Shop. A few people have asked where they can get the books, films and music which have featured on these pages and the Local Shop has been built to make it easier to get your hands on those items. If you aren’t lucky enough to win a copy of A Method Actor’s Guide to Jekyll and Hyde, it is available in store along with lots more to choose from. You can browse at your own leisure by going to Local Shop.

To check out all that Birlinn has to offer go to It has a fantastic range of Scottish fiction and fact, covering history, politics, sport and culture. Current releases include a biography of Stuart Adamson; In A Big Country, a timely selection of the poetry of Norman MacCaig and The Stornoway Black Pudding Bible, written by Cafe Gandolfi’s Seamus MacInnes.
