O ur annual countdown of the most exciting cultural figures in Scotland is here and as you may have noticed, it's a bit different. This year's Hot 100 is all about highlighting the achievements of women (including trans women and non-binary identifying people) who have made significant contributions to Scottish arts and culture in 2018. If you're dying to find out who's topped this magnificent list, head over to page 44 to find out and join the discussion online using #ListHot100.
It may be our last issue of the year but we've packed in plenty of recommendations for things to do over the festive period (and beyond). Turn to page 52 to read all about what's in store this Hogmanay, and don't forget to flick through our annual Christmas Wish List, which you'll find bundled up with this issue. Plus, we take a sneak peak at this year's SQIFF (page 54) and look ahead to Scottish Opera's Anthropocene (page 50). Elsewhere, we hear more about Sleep in the Park (page 49) from some of the acts playing at the events in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Dundee and the creators of the smash- hit musical Six (page 56) give us the lowdown on the future of the 2018 Fringe hit. You can also plan your Christmas TV schedule (page 130) and check out our latest film (page 92) and restaurant (page 64) reviews for some well-deserved holiday inspiration.

Debate has raged within these walls over the nominees, so who will scoop this year's number one slot? Among the contenders are book publishers, theatre bosses, composers, TV stars and a library . . .

HOGMANAY Edinburgh will once again lead the world with a New Year's Eve party to end them all. Headlining the Concert in the Gardens are Franz Ferdinand with admirable support from Free Love (the band formerly known as Happy Meals) and Metronomy. SIX They brought the house down at the Edinburgh Fringe, and the Six phenomenon is set to do the same in Glasgow, as the story of Henry VIII's long- suffering wives (frankly, history has also not been kind to them) gets a blistering musical treatment.
