> CFP: Scottish crime fiction, spec issue of _CLUES: A Journal of Detection_
> Guest Editor: Gill Plain, University of St. Andrews (UK)
>
> From Ian Rankin to Val McDermid to Alexander McCall Smith, Scottish writers have dominated the British crime fiction market for the past twenty years. The Scottish crime fiction issue of _CLUES_ (the only US academic journal on mystery fiction) seeks to examine this phenomenon. Is the success of Scottish crime fiction attributable to a literary history stretching back to the nineteenth century and beyond, or is it the result of more recent cultural and political developments?
