My name is Scott McFarlane Liddell. ( why McFarlane? read this ).

By some freak I was born in Manchester but have lived in either or Edinburgh or Glasgow since I was wee. I live in Edinburgh with my wife and family.

I now spend my working week split between the good people of Edinburgh and Cheshire.

I am a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.

I once sold George Takei 3 postcards.

I can often be found eating the fish in the Scottish Malt Whisky Society.

I once maxed out the score on the scoreboard on the Monaco GP arcade game.

I have eaten a cheese toastie in the board room of the largest private company in India. It was nice.

I own a ZX81, a ZX80 and an Oric 1.

I’m a typophile. I have a favourite font.

You may have arrived here looking for the Liddell and Scott Greek-English lexicon.

As you may have noticed, I am not said book. You can find more info and links to various resources about the lexicon here.

I am a Level 8 Google Local Guide. That mainly involves, for me, taking pictures of my dinner.

My photos on Google have been viewed over 45 million times. Which says a lot more about how busy Google is rather than how good the pictures of my dinner are.

I once had a photo on display in the National Portrait Gallery in London. Here I am cheesing in front of it.

It’s a picture of my Dad. I didn’t get his nose.

Has been a busy first half of 2023. 32 years after my first degree I completed a Masters in Philosophy. If you thought I was boring before…

And then the Dark Edinburgh book won and award. Which is nice.

Still to come in 2023, Science Fiction will (finally) get published. Until then, you can read this review of my last book.
