Emerald Magic : Great Tales of Irish Fantasy
Mythology and magic come alive in this collection of Irish fantasy stories by
some of today's finest authors.
Ireland is a nation that holds fast to its history and
heritage, and nowhere is that more true than in its folktales and legends. From
the great Celtic myths featuring the bard
the terrible Morrigan, the heroic Cuchulain, or the noble and cunning Sidhe to
strange and mysterious tales of today, the stories and traditions of the Emerald
Isle hold a strong attraction for many. Stories are told in cottage hearths from
Galway to Dublin, and from the windblown rocky Cliffs of Mohr to the seaside
villages where fishing boats still roam the oceans. Tall tales and town stories
are as much a way of life as a pint and good conversation at the local pub.
Emerald Magic brings together today's best fantasy authors to
explore the myths of the Irish, telling their own versions of these ancient
tales of luck, love, and honor, or drawing upon centuries of Irish myths and
folktales and updating them into brand-new stories. Edited and with an
introduction by bestselling author Father Andrew M. Greeley, Emerald Magic
contains fourteen wonderful stories of legend and lore, including:
"A Woman Is a Fast Moving Picnic" by
Ray Bradbury. A group of
pub regulars set out to discover the truth behind a local song and answer
that age-old question: Just how fast does a person sink in a bog?
"The Isle of Women" by
Jacqueline Carey. In an age long ago,
a warrior sailing for vengeance happens upon an island ruled by a
woman like no
other. But if he is to continue his quest, he must
choose between her and his
Tanith Lee. A woman who finds and reads her grandfather's diary
unleashes the specter of an old debt that, even in today's modern age, must be
paid---one way or the other.
"A Drop of Something Special in the Blood" by
In the late eighteenth century, an Irish author encounters a being that he will
turn into his greatest literary creation.
"The Cat with No Name" by
Morgan Llywelyn. A lonely girl
neglected by her parents finds an unexpected friend in the alley behind her
home---one that may be more than it first seems.
"The Butter-Spirit's Tithe" by
Charles de Lint. Even in twenty-first-century
America, it is still not wise to anger the spirits of the world, as a young
musician discovers when a butter-spirit who had cursed him nine years earlier
comes to claim his soul.
"Land of Heart's Desire" by
Elizabeth Haydon. A young man discovers the magical
truth about his parents' marriage, and sets a chain of events in motion that
will force him to choose between the life he has always known---and another life
he could have.
"The Swan Pilot" by
L. E. Modesitt, Jr. In the far future, spaceship pilots
travel through interdimensional portals from planet to planet---and the only
thing more important than knowing how to fly is knowing how to handle the
strange hallucinations that appear during the journey.
Filled with the spirit and magic of the stories of Ireland, Emerald Magic is a
collection of fantasy stories that will delight and captivate from the first
page to the last.
