Kevin Williamson (Editor) - Children of Albion Rovers (2nd Hand Paperback)
Children of Albion Rovers is the best-selling and critically acclaimed collection of novellas that features six of the most exciting young writers to emerge from Scotland in the 90s: award-winning authors Irvine Welsh, Alan Warner, Gordon Legge, and James Meek and introducing the striking new talents of Laura Hird and Paul Reekie.
Children of Albion Rovers is a world of tripped-out crematorium attendants (Alan Warner), vengeful traffic-wardens (James Meek), born-again vinyl junkies (Gordon Legge), and teenage girls who sexually humiliate their teachers (Laura Hird).
Also included are Paul Reekie's fictional account of ideals betrayed and Irvine Welsh's first ever sci-fi story, featuring alien space casuals wreaking havoc through the known universe.
The resulting mix is intoxicating to say the least.

"This is an anthology of six novellas by Scottish writers that was released back in 1996 when Scots were all the rage. Hot stuff then, an interesting time capsule read now." - Goodreads Review.
" . . . a collection of novellas which, through attitude and clever marketing, became a publishing phenomenon. Owning a copy of the book, which fused Beat, punk and the street-smart humour of the football terraces and the boozer, under the Rebel Inc imprint, was as hip as owning a rare import album by an underground band." - The Herald.
Kevin Williamson (born 1961) is a writer, publisher, and activist originally from Caithness. He was a Scottish socialist and republican and was an activist for the Scottish Socialist Party (SSP). He was also the architect of their radical drug policy, which included the legalisation of cannabis and the provision under the National Health Service of free synthetic heroin to addicts under medical supervision to combat the problems of drugs in working class communities. He wrote a regular weekly column, "Rebel Ink", for the Scottish Socialist Voice.
