The Bottle Imp journal takes its name from an 1891 short story by Robert Louis Stevenson and it "exists to promote and support the teaching and study of Scottish literature and language." They pull no punches on their site when they note that "We're sure you'll find something to intrigue, inspire or annoy you!" The journal is a delightful find, and contributors to its pages include writers and academics from all over the world. Published by the Association for Scottish Literary Studies, the journal comes out twice a year, and visitors to their site can read current and past issues at no charge here. Regular columns in the journal include the "Scots Word of the Season", a listing of relevant conferences, and information on new publications. Past issues have also included trenchant pieces on Scottish Romanticism and the appearance of the devil in Scottish literature.
