Sutherland Scott Biography - Information About the Author
Sutherland Scott is a pseudonym of Doctor William Clunie Harvey.
Blood in Their Ink; The March of the Modern Mystery Novel is non-fiction and is probably quite an interesting read for crime fiction fans and collectors as it covers not only some history, in terms of writing, but also the authors advice and tips for writers looking to enter the genre - given how obscure the Good Doctor is, and indeed was, I wonder at the efficacy of these tips, still a potentially interesting read and by far his commonest book.
Collectors seeking a full set of the Septimus Dodds books are going to struggle, in our experience they are difficult to find, especially in jacket.
