Jump to Services This survey has no authority other than my own ornery wish to help aspiring writers make progress; I'm really a writer, not a surveyor. I am Piers Anthony, known primarily for my Xanth fantasy series, though I also do serious writing. I've had a good deal of experience in the publishing school of hard knocks, hence my interest in making it easier for others. Updates directly from publishers are welcome, and so are comments about those publishers from those who use them.

Peter goes to the stage to receive his award Peter complaining that it's the first time in thirty years that he has worn a suit! On presenting the award, Magnus Linklater said: The focus is is less about the murder, the clues, the tracking down of the perpetrator, than about the landscape against which it takes place, and the characters who become part of the narrative.
The judges would particularly like to praise the dual narrative, the vivid descriptions, the richly-layered prose, unflinching emotion and the interesting central character: It makes me immensely proud to be honoured by my ain folk in this way, and I owe a huge thanks to those Scottish readers who have propelled me to the top of the charts with their unerring support.
And I have come to the conclusion that it is all about confidence - the confidence that successful pioneers like William McIlvanney and Ian Rankin have given the rest of us to write about our home country, and the confidence inspired by the wonderful loyalty of Scottish readers and the backing of Scottish bookstores.
Bloody Scotland is a manifestation of that confidence, and this prize the ultimate seal of approval. I am humbled to receive it.Publishers Jump to Services: This survey has no authority other than my own ornery wish to help aspiring writers make progress; I'm really a writer, not a surveyor.
