      Monument to Scottish Novelist
      Last Saturday a crowd gathered at Makar's Court, outside the Writer's
      Museum in Lady Stair's Close in Edinburgh. They were to honour the
      acclaimed novelist Dorothy Dunnett, with the unveiling of an inscribed
      flagstone. Dorothy Dunnett, who died in 2001, was described as "the
      greatest living writer of historical fiction" by the Washington Post
      and
      last year her book "Game of Kings" came second in a competition to
      find the
      "100 Best Scottish Books of all Time". The commemorative stone bears
      Dorothy Dunnett's name, coat of arms and a short quotation from her
      novel
      "Checkmate" - the last of the famous Lymond Chronicles: "Where are the
      links of the chain joining us to the past?" The stone lies beside those
      commemorating Robert Burns, Sir Walter Scott, Robert Louis Stevenson
      and
      many other Scottish literary giants.
