Signing Se ssions We have arranged an extensive series of signings
extending from Friday through Monday. These signings will take place in the
Dealers room, starting on the hour from 11am to 5pm and running for 30-45
minutes depending on demand. There will inevitably be long queues
in some cases. Please show consideration for the wrists and fingers
of the writers by not asking them to sign excessive numbers of books. In
some cases, specific limits may be applied to enforce this. Some signings
will be run in support of charities. These will be indicated at the time.

Map of Glasgow Transport Co nv en ti on b us se rv ice Buses will leave
the SECC and travel in a loop round the main city centre hotels about every
30 mins. You can pay the driver for each trip or buy a "season ticket" from
the bus company desk in the registration hall in the SECC (much better value).
Extra buses will be run
after the evening spectaculars to help get you away from the SECC.There
will be a small bus running a shuttle service between the Forte Crest and
Central Hotel at night until 3am. The times of first and last buses will
be tied to the programme in the SECC. Look for times displayed at the Information
Desk. There is also a normal city bus service which runs every half hour
during the day between the SECC and the City Centre. Fare to city centre
is 47 pence on this bus.
Taxis phone 332 7070 or 332 6666. There is a taxi rank outside the
SECC and also outside the Central Hotel. You may hail black cabs in the
street. 4 in a cab will be cheaper than using a bus.
B i k e s for hire from West End Cycles, 16 Chancellor St, phone 357 1344
Parking The SECC car parks cost #2.00 per visit. Car parks in the
city centre are shown on the map by the symbol P. They are expensive but
safer than leaving a car on the street. Most hotels either have their own
car park or overnight cheap deals in a nearby multistory. Note that the
Forte Crest hotel has very limited spaces outside the main entrance
but has loads of free (if you get a token from reception) parking at the
Scott St car park (formerly Anderston Bus Station).
Advice for Drivers. Do not park on double yellow lines at any time.
Do not park on single yellow lines except at times indicated by plaques
on posts or wall nearby (usually no parking between 8.00 and 18.00). Illegal
parking usually results in a #20 parking ticket. If you cause an obstruction
then the police may tow away your vehicle and it then costs about
#100 to get it back. The speed limit on urban roads is 30mph = 50kph unless
signposted differently. The national speed limit on motorways and dual carriageways
outside towns is 70 mph = 115kph unless a lower limit is signposted.
Please do not drink and drive. Telephones Telephones use 10 pence,
20 pence, 50 pence and pound coins. Phonecard phones require a special card
available from newsagents and some other shops. Some phones accept credit
cards but this is costly. A local call costs 10 pence for 3 minutes at peak
times (8.30 -
18.00).The operator is reached by dialling 100. Directory enquiries is 192. (No charge from payphones).
Emergency services: Dial 999 If you need help from Police, Fire,
or Ambulance they are all reached by dialling 999. No money required.H o
s p i t a l s
Nearest Accident & Emergency hospitals: Royal Infirmary, 84
Castle St. (Phone 211 4000) or Southern General Hospital, 1345 Govan Rd.

St Restaurant Guide This list was compiled by Bruce Saville, at great expense
to his wallet and expanse to his waist. It covers most of the restaurants
in the City Centre and the West End, with a few others thrown in for the
This list is provided as a guide only and comes with no guarantees.
It was edited by your pocket programme book editor (Ian Sorensen) from a
more detailed list provided by Bruce. Sorry if there are any mistakes or
omissions - they are probably Ian's fault. Please check for up to date
details with the restaurants themselves.
A star * beside the name means that it comes with a hearty recommendation
from Bruce, either because of the quality of the food or the originality
of the experience.
Price Bands (#): The price bands are based on the price of the cheapest
2 course meal (Starter & Main Course) available on the menu. The dearest
priced meal is usually about twice the cheapest. Remember that drinks will
be extra. It is usually best to book a table in advance, especially on Friday
and Saturday nights. Many places have a "pre-theatre" menu available between
17.00 and 19.00 with a more limited selection but at a lower price - typically
#7.50 for a 3 course meal. Worth asking about when booking.
Most restaurants will accept Visa, Access and Mastercard. Many accept
Diners and Amex. Check before ordering. Kosher FoodThere are no kosher restaurants
in the City Centre or West End. SomeKosher food is available in many supermarkets
and shops like Marks & Spencers. The Jewish Information & Resource
Centre's phone number is 620 2194.
Key to Guide Within each type of restaurant entries are in order
of price band, from Band A up to F.Types of Restaurant (in the order they
Bistro/Brasserie, Chinese, Fast Food, French, Fish, Greek, Burgers
& Pasta, Icelandic, Indian, Italian, Japanese, Mexican, Pizza, Pubs,
Scottish, Thai, Middle East, USA and Vegetarian.
There should be sample menus for many restaurants on display at
the Information Desk. Price bands for cheapest 2 course meal are shown under
the heading #.Band A = Under #3, Band B = #3 - #5, Band C = #5 - #7, Band
D = #7 - #9, Band E = #9 - #11, Band F = Over #11
Cheap Kids Menus are available at most Fast Food outlets. A few
other special offers are listed in the notes. Vegetarian dishes (Veg)The
number of vegetarian dishes on the normal menu is given under the heading
Veg by the following code: N = none, F = a few, S = some, L = lots, A =
All. Opening TimesMost restaurants will open for lunch at around 12.00 and
may close at 15.00 to reopen at 17.00 for dinners. 23.00 is a fairly normal
closing time. Unfortunately Bruce has all times in 12 hour format, not
knowing this guide would use 24 hour format. Sorry for any confusion this
causes but there hasn't been time to change them. If in doubt, phone the
restaurant and check times.
Closed DaysMost restaurants are open all 7 days unless noted differently
by a code under the heading Closed. BreakfastsIf the restaurant serves breakfasts
then there will be a Y under the heading Brk. Handicapped AccessIf access
is particularly difficult then a N appears under the heading HC. NotesAt
the end of each section there are notes giving extra information about restaurants
marked with a number under the heading N.
