ARCThàinig barrachd dhen agallamh a rinn mi le Paul Cockburn a-mach an clò air blog aig an iris air-loidhne, ARC.

Debut science fiction novels are not uncommon, but there’s one thing that immediately sets Seattle-born Tim Armstrong’s On a Glittering Black Sea apart from all other science fiction published this year in the UK. It’s not necessarily the worlds his characters inhabit — an advanced autocratic and hyper-capitalist civilisation, linking several planets and space stations. Nor is it the feel of the novel, which Tim suggests “shifts between whimsy and menace, with elements of space-opera adventure, dark cyberpunk, romance, and rock-band road trip all mixed together.” No, it’s much simpler than that: it’s that the title on the cover reads Air Cuan Dubh Drilseach, and you won’t be able to read the novel unless you have a pretty good understanding of Scottish Gaelic.

Leughar an rud air fad an seo.

    Tha am buidheann Reading Gàidhlig agam, air librarything.com, agus phost mi rud mu dheidhinn ACDD. Sgrìobhaidh mi ‘s a’ Bheurla air, gus am bi e fàilteach dhan a h-uile luchd-ionnsachaidh. ‘S fìor thoil leam na rinn thu leis a’ bhriathrachas. Bu mhiann leam gum biodh a h-uile ughdar Gàidhlig a’ dèanamh a leithid.
