A Brilliant Void : A Selection of Classic Irish Science Fiction Paperback / softback

Edited by Jack Fennell

Paperback / softback


An astronomer challenges an emperor. A hunter pursues the last dinosaur through a remote rainforest.

A young Kerryman emigrates to the Moon to seek his fortune.

The fifteen darkly funny stories in this book illuminate a side of Irish literary history that is often overlooked.

In the 19th and 20th centuries, the winds of change came rushing in Ireland's direction.

Science and technology would transform everything: life, love, death, crime, war, and even history itself.

Edited and introduced by Jack Fennell, this collection of lesser-known works of classic Irish science fiction includes stories by Frances Power Cobbe, Fitz-James O'Brien, Charlotte McManus and Cathal O Sandair.
