Archie genuinely believes the old legends he was told as a child. Growing up on a small island of the Scottish coast and sheltered from the rest of the world, despite all the knowledge he gains as an adult, he still believes in the underlying truth of these stories. After years of unemployment, to escape his selfish wife and to stop the North Wind from blowing so harshly in winter, Archie leaves home to find the hole where the North Wind originates. Funny, original and very moving, Archie and the North Wind demonstrates the raw power of storytelling.

Time is running out for four-year-old Sebastian Zair. A rare blood disorder means that a stem-cell transplant is his only hope of surviving past childhood. His mother places her trust in the Pemberton Fertility Centre and a controversial IVF procedure which will allow her to select an embryo that is the same tissue type as Sebastian - to create a saviour sibling. But what she doesn't know is that the sword of Damocles is hanging over the Pemberton. A Nigerian couple, the Opakanjos, have just given birth to twins through IVF, but only one is their biological child. Someone has made a monumental mistake. With a major enquiry under way and pro-life campaigners on the warpath, both families are faced with agonising personal choices as well as the intrusions of an unscrupulous journalist. Will they break under the strain? Will Sebastian survive? REVIEWS: There are very few novels which deal with the issues of contemporary medical ethics in the lively and intensely readable way which Hazel McHaffie's books do. ALEXANDER McCALL SMITH McHaffie's books are skillfully written to bring out the complex ethical issues we as doctors, nurses, patients, or relatives, may face in dealing with difficult issues... These books are a welcome development of what has been called the narrative turn in medical ethics. THE BRITISH MEDICAL JOURNAL

Professional football provide one of the Victoran era’s most mesmerising spectacles, developed at a time when the British public has at its disposal more free time and spare pennies than ever before. But as the bread became more plentiful, it needed someone to build the circuses.That man was Archibald Leitch.Born in Glasgow in 1865, Archibald Leitch – a consulting engineer and factory architect by profession – became to football what Frank Matcham was to theatre; in effect, its designer in chief. Millions of spectators sat or stood in Leitch’s structures, built for such famous clubs as Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea, Everton, Liverpool, Tottenham, Aston Villa, Hearts and, not least, Glasgow Rangers, where his stadium career began in 1899, and nearly ended just three years later, when one of his stands gave way, leading to the death of 26 spectators. Leitch witnessed the tragedy and vowed never to let it be repeated.But while his pedimented gables and criss-cross steelwork balconies formed a recognisable and much-admired style, and his own patented crush barriers were so ubiquitous as to be virtually invisible, until now little has been known of Leitch himself. Moreover, following the modernisation of football grounds as a result of the Hillsborough disaster in 1989, only a dozen of his buildings survive.In this timely and entertaining study of Leitch’s life, his works and his legacy, Simon Inglis has unearthed a surprising number of hitherto unseen plans, documents and archive photographs, many of them rich in detail.
