Questions Answered by
Dorothy Dunnett

Dorothy's talks and personal appearances were always popular, usually being composed of a reading from one of the books, a number of anecdotes from her research trips and a question and answer session, but with an ever growing army of fans all over the world there were many who never got the chance to hear her speak or answer their questions. I conceived these pages in an attempt to capture something of the atmosphere of one of these talks. By inviting questions from the visitors to the site and also providing some of the "standard" answers that often came up, I tried to give readers something of the insight into Dorothy's writing and ideas that they would have got from attending a talk in person.

She enjoyed seeing the questions and I was always interested to see how she would answer them - usually in a humourous and somewhat elliptical way that was designed to make the reader think their way through to the correct answer rather than simply providing it as a stated fact.
