Last week, I was procrastinating in a second-hand bookshop (yeah, I know, I do that a lot...) and came across both Where Eagles Dare and Ice Station Zebra, for 20 cents each! Excellent! I gleefully carried my prizes home. I opened the cover of Ice Station Zebra to the very first page - not where the story starts, before that - where there's a little biography of the author. I read the first line - and my jaw hit the floor.
Alistair Maclean, the son of a Scots Minister, was brought up in the Scottish Highlands.
I was stunned! My mind reeled! So THAT'S why I've become a Presbyterian! I've been imbibing Presbyterianism through Alistair Maclean's books...!
