The Blue Folk of The Minch

An original short story by Kevin MacNeil

Hebridean folklore with a contemporary twist is at the centre of Kevin MacNeil's story of the Blue Folk of The Minch - mythical sea creatures found of the shores of his native Lewis. In keeping with tradition such creatures challenge the humans they encounter to a deadly contest of words. There's no escape, as a young man discovers when a poetry slam in Glasgow goes wrong.

Kevin MacNeil is a novelist, poet and playwright
