In this, our second issue, we range far and wide, crossing oceans and exploring literary polities both real and imaginary. Clyde-built, The Bottle Imp sails forth once more into the seething waters of the world-wide web: we hope you have a pleasant voyage!
Welcome to the first edition of The Bottle Imp, the Scottish Studies ezine of the Scottish Writing Exhibition. Why The Bottle Imp? The name, of course, is stolen from one of Stevenson’s short stories. As a symbol of Scotland’s ability to see beyond itself, to go outside its borders – whether for honour, or for glory, or for riches, or even just for the climate – it seemed appropriate. We hope that we, too, might contain something surprising!
