• Whispering Gallery 136

This special issue of Whispering Gallery marks the republication of The Lymond Chronicles and King Hereafter by interviewing the editor at Michael Joseph Publishing responsible for the reissue.

We have an unusual article on how The Game of Kings is taught to young students at an American university, and the reactions of two new readers to The Lymond Chronicles. The Talking Point asks contributors about the history they learned reading the books, and we examine the fall of Trebizond. A new series on Dorothy Dunnett’s Armorial Characters begins by focusing on the personal heraldry of the Adorne family.

  • Some readers will remember the presentation of a book of tributes to Dorothy Dunnett at the Gathering in 2000. We start publishing selected content from that unique gift. And we look back to 1994 … and a very special film proposal.
