Fans and customers of Clachaig will already be familiar with Alex as both former bar man and creator of the popular Facebook page and Blog Glencoe Mountaineer.
Writer of historical fiction, Alex Roddie, returns to Clachaig for Februaryfest to present the official launch of the paperback version of his novel, The Only Genuine Jones.
The author will talk a little about the writing of the novel and there’ll be a good opportunity to chat to Alex and, of course, to obtain your signed copy.
Two climbers. One victor.
O.G. Jones and Aleister Crowley are rival mountaineers, both brilliant and ambitious, but with a very different concept of honour.
It’s 1896, but not as you know it. Mountaineers use new and revolutionary equipment, risking death for intangible rewards. Nobody has ever climbed a major Alpine north face before. Only an extraordinary man would want to.
Crowley seeks revenge; Jones seeks redemption. Together their journey will take them to the most lethal mountain wall in the Alps, where Jones will face a terrible choice: risk death and dishonour, or allow Crowley to triumph and destroy everything he believes in.
Adventure and deception, the Victorian spirit of progress, and the savage beauty of the wild combine to make this a tale of the mountains unlike any other.
