Politics, romance and hunting faeries: more Edinburgh fiction mapped

Recent additions to our map of books set in Edinburgh:

Charlotte Square is the home of Lady Aileana Kameron, who between attending dances and balls, is busy slaughtering faeries during the winter of 1844 in The Falconer by Elizabeth May.

From the past to the not so distant future: Craig Smith’s debut “The Mile” takes place along the Royal Mile on the eve of September’s independence vote.

There’s not actually a Jamaica Lane in Edinburgh but as writer Samantha Young points out in her introduction, it’s a better title for her love story than ‘Before Jamaica Street Lane North‘ would have been.

Elsewhere, we’ve pinned Jennie Erdal’s ‘The missing shade of blue‘ to the National Library of Scotland and another colourful title, Natalie Haynes The Amber Fury, at Rankeillor Street.

Take a look round the map and find out which books are right up your street!

And if you have any suggestions for books to add to the map please do share them with us.
