    Hi, I'm writing a slightly futuristic political thriller that takes place in Scotland. Basically it involves a new Scottish Revolution. I would really like someone to help write this and make sure that we get the life of a modern scot right. As hard as I try I'm sure I'm still using a bit of the media-based stereotypes, which is what I want to avoid. It's not going to be a whole bunch of people wearing kilts and drinking the whole time (there's gonnna be a bit, but not all the time) AOL Instant Messenger would be nice, but just e-mail will work too.

    Oooh, I love being called a native! 'Fraid I don't have MSN any more cos the evil folk who run the university computing labs have blocked us from downloading it... :_|
    Paul Johnston's Quintillian Dalrymple books are good futuristic political/crime stories set in Scotland. The first one was Body Politic and I can't remember the other titles just now - d'oh!
