King Hereafter and Lymond Poetry

King Hereafter

King Hereafter

US pbk edition

King Hereafter is the story of the real Macbeth (as opposed to the Shakespearian fiction). Written between finishing Lymond and beginning Niccolo it took many years of painstaking research. During this time Dorothy became convinced that Macbeth and Earl Thorfinn of Orkney, who history regarded as cousins, were in fact one and the same person and the novel is written partly to illustrate this theory.

The Lymond Poetry

Lymond Poetry

Edited by Elspeth Morrison and Richenda Todd

This is a collection of poetry drawn from research notes found amongst Dorothy's papers after her death. They were originally written and intended for publication in the 1970s. Elspeth and Richenda have worked their usual magic and turned them into a final tribute to Dorothy and her stunning hero.
