Anyone read this guy? I get the impression he's not too well-known outside the U.K. (he's Scottish). Imagine an '80s action movie — with a Shane Black script, maybe, since there's a ton of sarcastic humour — except the conversations are in thick Glaswegian dialect, the villains are generally Conservative cabinet ministers or fundamentalist televangelists or that sort of thing, and you'll become very well educated on the rivalries between the various Scottish football clubs (though there's not much in the books about the sport itself).


My favourites are Country of the Blind and A Big Boy Did It and Ran Away. If you want to check out his writing style, the short story "Bampot Central" is at his site here.
