In 1801, some five years after Robert Burns' death, nine of his friends sat down to dinner in what is now known as Burns Cottage in Alloway. By then an inn, it was in the 'auld clay biggin' where Robert Burns had been born that the first Burns Supper took place. They gathered to celebrate his extraordinary life and to gave thanks for his friendship. It was a simple evening, where they reminisced about his work, sang a few songs, roared with laughter remembering the fiery barbs from his skelpin' tongue, made speeches and drank toasts to his memory. Little did they know that this fellowship and remembrance would resonate down through the centuries and span all across the world. Over the years, the informal theme from that evening has developed into the mystical ritual known as Burns Night. The traditional format of the evening is laid out in Burns Supper Companion according to the Burns Federation and some of the oldest Burns clubs in existence. This fascinating insight into the traditions surrounding Burns Night includes a biography of Robert Burns, poems, songs and quotations, simple speeches and even a recipe for haggis. It is the essential guide for anyone intending to hold or attend a Burns Night of any size or ilk, or for those who simply have a keen interest in Burns and the great traditions that have been laid into place in his honor.

So, what gives this Scottish ex-patriate writer the idea, temerity even, that he could ever vie with Robert Burns, The National Bard of Scotland? And, what is it about Haggis and Burns Suppers that motivated him to spend years writing this collection of poems and months to publish?, In answer, Ian insists that he is in no way trying to rival Robert Burns, rather that he considers Burns' language and poetic masterpieces his primary inspiration and that to emulate him would be the sincerest form of praise. As to focusing on Haggis and Burns Suppers; he considers these to be subjects of major interest to about ten million worldwide devotees of The Bard, according to whom, the Haggis is a "Puddin wi' an honest, sonsie face". In his "Address To A Haggis" Burns implores "Ye Pow'rs" to dish out the humble Haggis as "Auld Scotland's" preferred "Bill o' Fare". This plea evidently led to the "Great chieftain o' the puddin-race" domination of Burns Suppers from the get-go and aptly evokes the theme of "Haggis Talk! Since there is an abundance of information readily available detailing Burns Suppers, the author asks that readers take a look at a couple of his own poems to get a humorous description of what to expect, suggesting "Haggis USA" and "Burns Night Randan". Although written in various poetic forms, some quite unorthodox, they flow along in conversational style and are relatively easy to read or recite. Written to entertain those of his ilk at home and abroad, this author offers a hilarious and frequently thought-provoking collection of poetry, chiefly in the Scottish dialect. These verses cover subjects and characters cherished by the Scottish diaspora who revere Robert Burns, the Man and his natural genius. Divided into three parts, Part 1 is focused on Burns Suppers, Part 2 is an eclectic mix of light-hearted subjects with several of a more serious nature, like "My Reality" and "Rabbie's Dilemma". Part 3 is intended to provide some ammunition to the voluntary Burns Club comedians whom the Host will invite to take the floor after all the traditional formalities are enjoyed, and who will keep the fun going until Rabbie's "Auld Lang Syne" brings the festivities to a rousing close. A Glossary is included to aid our non-Scottish friends. The author expresses sincere hopes that readers will derive as much pleasure from "Haggis Talk!" as he has from Robert Burn's songs and poems over the years.

Poems, Chiefly in the Scottish Dialect, was the first collection of poetry produced by Robert Burns. Published in Kilmarnock in July 1786 it has become known as The Kilmarnock Edition. The contents include 44 of Burns' best known poems including To a Louse, The Cotter's Saturday Night, To a Mouse, The Twa Dogs and To a Mountain Daisy. Released in 2009 to celebrate Burns' 250th birthday, The Luath Kilmarnock Edition brought this classic of Scottish literature back into print, after being unavailable for many years. New material includes an introduction by 'the man who played Burns' -author, actor and Burns expert -John Cairney, exploring Burns' life and work, especially the origins of The Kilmarnock Edition. Looking to the future of Burns in Scotland and the rest of the world, Clark McGinn, world-renowned Burns Supper speaker, provides an afterword that speaks to Burns' continuing legacy. Illustrated throughout with original line drawings by top political satirist Bob Dewar, The Luath Kilmarnock Edition makes a beautiful gift for any Burns enthusiast. "This special illustrated edition celebrates the 250th anniversary of the birth of Robert Burns, probably the world's favourite poet. Poems Cheifly in the Scottish Dialect, the only book of his poetry published in his short lifetime, is probably the most significant book ever published from Scotland. Kilmarnock saw that first edition of a young man's poems published in 1786 and Burns has not beeen out of print for a single day since. We are still reading, reciting and enjoying these poems... the writing, life and character of this Ayrshire ploughman inspire deep human emotion around the globe. - FROM THE AFTERWORD BY CLARK McGINN
