A COLLECTION of tales from Prestonpans storyteller Tim Porteus is set to be published later this year.

East Lothian Folk Tales has been written by Tim and is accompanied with illustrations by Mags MacFarlane.

Courier columnist Tim says the collection draws from stories from the past and has received attention from home and abroad.

He said: “The collection is out in November and I have already had more than 200 orders. There has been interest from abroad as well as here.”

The book, which will be available on Amazon and in shops, is expected to be launched on November 24.
