More About Ed James


Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Ed James writes crime fiction novels, predominantly the Scott Cullen series of police procedurals set in Edinburgh and the surrounding Lothians - the first four are available now, starting with GHOST IN THE MACHINE which has been downloaded over 100,000 times and is currently free. His next book - SHOT THROUGH THE HEART - features vampires and werewolves but not Scott Cullen and is out on 31-October. Ed lives in the East Lothian countryside, 25 miles east of Edinburgh, with his girlfriend, six rescue moggies, two retired greyhounds, a flock of ex-battery chickens and eight rescue ducks across two breeds and two genders (though the boys don't lay eggs). He works in IT for a living, commuting from Edinburgh to London every week (not every day) and writes mainly on public transport. His blog - edjamesauthor.com - is a log of his work, his thoughts on his writing, and a place for his word count OCD to express itself. His music tastes will creep in now and again.

AWESOME BOOK PETA hippys stop using this as your cry forum  May 31, 2008
This book is great. It is not illegal. It is not garbage. Cockfighting is not illegal in every state. And lastly people breed game cocks and show them who dont fight them.

this site I AM A CUSTOMER AND THANK YOU FOR HAVING THESE BOOKS.

PETA and the nazis both would have you get rid of books.
 
Good read, Informative, deep subject matter  Feb 29, 2008
Interesting book on what has recently become such a trendy topic of outrage. Cockfighting is illegal in my state and I have no intention of violating that law. Nonetheless, I am glad that in this nation, founded on freedom, particularly of information and knowledge (the only way a democracy can function), I was able to read about the subject to satisfy my curiosity about the outrage towards the sport.

It occurs to me that most reviewers here have probably little to no firsthand knowledge of much that occurs with our domesticated animals, be they for meat or dairy or laying...they certainly display a close-minded and hysterical attitude in their reviews towards 'cruelty' that is obviously mired in ignorance.

I wish that before screaming their self-aggrandizing, high-handed moral biases...people would at the least read the book. Anyways, bravo to anyone who doesn't bow and scrape to would-be moral tyrants who scream on the 'innanets' (that's humorous irony in itself, I think).

Once again: interesting read on what is obviously very deep subject matter.
