Roddy Martine has embarked upon a personal odyssey in search of the inexplicable and bizarre in every corner of Scotland. Amongst the dozens of incidents recorded, he tells of the hostile presence at the Goblin Ha' - a vaulted chamber below the ruins of Yester Castle - which exerted enormous pressure on his chest and legs, forcing him backwards. He investigates the mystery surrounding the burial of the murdered secretary of Mary, Queen of Scots, and meets His Grace James IV, King of Scots, reborn as the playwright A. J. Stewart. There are many other tales of ghosts and poltergeists, second sight, psychic phenomena, reincarnation, and the small people.

Roddy Martine was born in Kuching, Sarawak, the land of the Dyaks on the island of Borneo, and he therefore was exposed to the world of the supernatural at an early age. Of Scottish parentage, he has lived for most of his life in Edinburgh where, after leaving school, he edited a number of Scottish interest magazines before reinventing himself as a newspaper columnist, broadcaster and social commentator. He remains a contributing editor to Scotland magazine, and is the editor of The Keeper, the magazine of The Keepers of the Quaich, an exclusive society formed within the Scotch whisky industry to promote and celebrate its products. He has written over twenty non-fiction works including the Edinburgh Military Tattoo (also published by Hale).
