Ethrick Brown’s ‘Nothing ever happens in North Berwick’ novels are set in the quiet coastal town of North Berwick in East Lothian, Scotland. In essence the concept is that the events that occur in this small resort have ramifications that have national, global and even divine or cosmic consequences which the locals are generally oblivious to. While no one would seriously consider these events to be anything more than tall tales or outrageous Scottish fiction, could they be true? Treat yourself to a great story.
You can also have a look at some of the other stuff I'm working on, in the work in progress section. feedback is always welcome.


The Somali Pirate Adventure - Ethrick Brown

 ethrick card Bass Rock

A couple of pints. That was the plan.  On the face of it a simple objective but Scottish drinking plans were fluid and complex affairs. That aside, how far off course could the quest for a couple of beers in the quiet coastal town of North Berwick go? Two lagers, an assault on Somalia in search of pirates, the involvement of gangsters, terrorists, National Security Services and a packet of crisps please. That is surely stretching it a bit far. Ok, forget the crisps then.

Please drink responsibly because even in a small town, like North Berwick, where nothing ever happens an impulsive approach to alcohol can result in some seriously weird and unintended consequences.

 A tale of drink, drunks and National Security.


Ethrick Brown's Judgement Day

The age old battle of Good V Evil reaches North Berwick

Judgement Day North Berwick

Judgement Day.


Some say Satan is a big, red, ugly bastard with hooves, horns and a massive
heating bill while others might support Rangers. When a Catholic Priest, with
exorcism on his mind, visits North Berwick he sees a Masonic plot which he
believes will bring about the end of times.

The idea that a quiet little town in East Lothian, where nothing ever happens,
could be the location of the final battle between Good and Evil seems a little
far-fetched but what do you believe?

A tale of drink, drunks and cosmic conflict.
