Simply Thrilling: The SWH! Podcast Talks To C. F. Peterson...



For the latest SWH! podcast Ali spoke to writer C. F. Peterson about his new novel The Purified, available now - published by Scotland Street Press.


It's the second in the Duncul series following on from 2017's Errant Blood. The two talk about the challenges of writing a sequel, setting the books in the Scottish Highlands, Calum's approach to writing, the writers who influence him, and working with Scotland Street Press.


They also go into detail about some of the themes Calum covers in The Purified, including rewilding Scotland, climate change, anarchism, land ownership, nationalism, and a whole lot more.


Errant Blood was one of SWH!'s Books of the Year in 2017, and The Purified is a more than worthy follow up, and it was great to be able to talk to C. F. Peterson about it.


You can get your own copy of The Purified from Scotland Street Press.


Here's Calum reading a short extract from The Purified:
