Mrs Blighty, Literary Stalker

As I mentioned in my last post, I am completely caught up in the Gus Dury novels of Tony Black - hardboiled Scottish detective novels set in Edinburgh with gritty characters and punchy dialogue.

I dropped old Tone a line, a bit cheeky, telling him how his readership included none other than Grandma Whacker (who quite frankly at her age should be reading The Lady and, maybe for a bit of excitement,  The Radio Times).

Well, look back at the penultimate comment on my last post - the author himself commented! How very nice of him. So impressed he did that.

Here is Mr Black, talking about the latest Gus Dury novel. 

Mmmmm, he's a bit of a dish, isn't he? And that accent! But I am not going to push my luck.  No more cheeky comments.  Otherwise I might get a visit from a couple of heavies...


  1. Indeedy doody Mrs Blighty he is genetically blessed. Ok, with hotness like that I am going to track down one of his novels and read it.(apologies for the made up words etc)

  2. ha ha ha Blighty you cheeky devil! He's a bit Hugh Grant without the foppishness (is that a word?). I must read his novels so I can appreciate him more for his intellect.

  3. p.s. Did you know he was born in Australia?

  4. Goodness Blighty, you are so full of surprises! I'll have to take a gander at these books.

  5. Oh my!! Yes, he does look like Hugh Grant. Although I don't like to judge people by their looks, of course.

  6. That was so nice of him to comment, though his books don't sound like my cup of tea at all. I will definitely tell His Lordship about this author, sounds right up his street. xxx

  7. I am furthest north. And in greatest need, so I have first dibs on the author. We speak the same language. *puts up her dukes and prepares for a fight*

    Am going to get a couple of these books out of the library because if it's good enough for Mme Whacker, tis good enough for me.

    Well seeing that bloody Hugh Jackman hasn't bothered himself to comment on MY blog *wanders off weeping*

    Ali xxxxx
