Roderick Manson

Born in West Ferry, Dundee and now living in Blairgowrie, Roderick Manson's writing is very substantially defined by the writing challenges he sets himself, from ‘The Coffin Road’ (below), which was written while walking an old Angus coffin road, to ‘Highland Lines’, written whilst seated on a train at or around every mainline railway halt north of Glasgow, Perth and Dundee. ‘The Appointed Hour’, inspired by an idea of his musical idol Peter Hammill, is his most adventurous collaborative project to date, in line with his belief that “There is no failure; there are only results.”
