Sadly we are not aware of any Doric dictionary book for sale in local shops such as Waterstone's Aberdeen. Though many have been published over the years, most recently the Robert Gordon University RGU Doric Dictionary which helped raise funds for the charity National Literacy Trust and sold out within months, they are now out of print. Some can still be purchased second hand or through private sellers at Amazon and eBay. Links to these can be found on our book reviews page.

The Aberdeenshire skies are under attack from an enemy jet. It is spilling a strange yellow smoke. Minutes later, people start killing each other.
