Matthew Fitt’s extraordinary science-fiction novel But n Ben A-Go-Go is a fast-paced cyberpunk thriller. Like many SF novels it is a conscious comment on contemporary life; with its groundbreaking use of the Scots language, it challenges orthodoxies and raises questions about how we communicate, with the world and with ourselves.

Christine Robinson’s Scotnote explores and explains the novel’s complex plot, its characters and its creative use of language. This guide is suitable for senior school pupils and students at all levels.
