I cannot remember my father or my mother; oh, wretched that I am!
Had I either? My memory goes back three months – no further.
Every day, I live those three months over and over again.

A mystical battle between foreign gods and local saints is unleashed as idols are mistaken for garden ornaments; an ambiguous wizard spies on his neighbours from an invisible tower; a cursed duelling pistol influences its owners to commit suicide. Edited and introduced by Jack Fennell, this collection of lesser-known works of classic Irish fantasy – with strange combinations of occultism, electricity, magic and playfully Biblical archetypes – illuminate a side of Irish literary history that is often overlooked.
