Caroline McCracken-Flesher is professor of English at the University of Wyoming. Her recent publications includePossible Scotlands: Walter Scott and the Story of Tomorrow (2005),The Doctor Dissected: A Cultural Autopsy of the Burke and Hare Murders (2011),and the edited Bucknell volume, Culture, Nation, and the New Scottish Parliament (2007).
Scots like Iain N. Banks and Ken MacLeod lead in a futuristic tradition, for from MacDonald, Barrie, and Stevenson onwards, Scots have been speculating in ways derived from their unique circumstances: lacking political power, they imagine future spaces and different places—with a twist. Nineteenth-century thermodynamics (theorized in Scotland), Celtic Otherworlds, and a Scotland always on the "other side" of history open unusual futures for Mitchison, Spark, Lindsay, Mitchell, MadDiarmid, Morgan, Crumey, Fitt, and Gray.
