Sandstone Press is deeply sorry to announce the death of Angus Dunn early on Thursday 27th August 2015 after suffering from motor neurone disease for several months.
Angus was a novelist, short story writer and poet who was born and lived in the Highlands of Scotland. He was awarded the RL Stevenson Fellowship in 1996, and won the Neil Gunn Writing Competition in 2002. His novel, Writing in the Sand, was published by Luath Press in 2006, and short-listed for the Saltire First Book of the Year award. A short story collection, The Perfect Loaf, was published by Two Ravens Press in 2008. His poems have been published in magazines, anthologies and elsewhere. For many years he was the editor of Northwords Magazine. Latterly, Angus lived near Forres with his partner Nikki who survives him, as do his three children, Ben, Johanna and Rebecca.
High Country, the first collection of Angus’s poems, will be published this month by Sandstone Press, price £6.99.
