The Palimpsest eClassics Collection

"Palimpsest's eClassics series, Scottish Lost Treasures, shows us how much poorer Britain's cultural heritage would be without Scottish writers ... The best example I've seen of how curation and presentation can bring old books to new audiences." The Observer

Great Amazon Reviews keep on coming ...

'It is commendable that the rise of e-publishing allows a forgotten author another chance to share their stories with a new audience.'

'Terrific value … contains three “triple-decker” novels – enough to keep this reader going for longer than a single purchase usually would.'

"Forgotten no more, not by me anyway!! It was a joy to read these novels in all their Scottish diversity … my literary education has been enhanced by the experience"

Palimpsest is celebrating its 20th Anniversary by becoming a publisher in its own right.

As more Scottish publishing companies have disappeared – and along with them many great books which might never be reprinted – Palimpsest is seeking to save Scottish literary classics. The first list launched in October 2014 with a series of five ‘ebundles’ – Forgotten Authors, Historical Fiction, Women Writers, Supernatural Classics and War Poets – with 10 further ebundles published in November and December 2014.

Each includes a recognisable literary name (such as R. L. Stevenson, John Buchan, Neil Munro and James Hogg), along with less readily available works from lesser known or forgotten Scottish authors (such as Susan Ferrier, S. R. Crockett, Charles Murray and Catherine Sinclair).

Carefully reproduced as digital editions (many professionally digitised for the first time) and retailing at only £2.99, each bundle is affordable and will ensure that classic Scottish books are discovered by a new generation of digital readers.
