Brendan Gisby was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, halfway through the 20th century, and was brought up just along the road in South Queensferry (the Ferry) in the shadow of the world-famous Forth Bridge. He now lives in splendid isolation in the wilds of Strathearn in Scotland.

Retiring from a business career in 2007, Brendan has devoted himself to writing. To date, he has published four novels, four biographies and several short story collections.

Brendan is also the founder of McStorytellers, a website which showcases the work of Scottish-connected short story writers.

Brendan Gisby hasn't written any blog posts yet.

For a whole host of reasons, I thoroughly enjoyed this highly impressive saga of the quest for riches in the Yukon of the late nineteenth century. And here are but a few of those reasons.
