Spin-Off 01 - Alternative Therapy

The first of the spin-off stories to feature at Some Other Scotland is about Craig Fullarton's sister, Sarah. It is set shortly before the events of Episode 2. This story was originally posted for the Great Hites prompt "Self pity". It can be found along with others of the same theme at GH #58.

Spin-Off 02 - Mist and Shelter

The second and third of the spin-off stories to feature at Some Other Scotland are both set in the past. The events in "Mist" take place in 1919 on a secluded beach in the North of Scotland. This story was originally posted for the 100 Word Stories prompt "Shrouded in mist". It can be found along with others of the same theme at 100 Word Stories #168. The second short tale, "Shelter", was also written for the 100 Word Stories podcast, but was not recorded in time to be included, so this is its first appearance. It is set in 1940 and has a close link to Episode 15 of 'SOS'.

Spin-Off 03 - The Three Coos

The next spin-off story to feature at Some Other Scotland is a little different.

This is a variation on the popular fairytale 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff', but this is as told by Razer, so it has a little more local flavour.

It was inspired by odin1eye from the View From Valhalla blog. That is a good source of reviews of other podiobooks you might want to investigate if you are enjoying SOS.
