Shadow Voices : 300 Years of Irish Genre Fiction: A History in Stories Hardback

Hardback

Description

All hardbacks in the first print run will be signed by the author. The story of genre fiction - horror, romantic fiction, science fiction, crime writing, and more - is also the story of Irish fiction.

Irish writers have given the world Lemuel Gulliver, Dracula, and the world of Narnia.

They have produced pioneering tales of detection, terrifying ghost stories and ground-breaking women's popular fiction.

Now, for the first time, John Connolly's one volume presents the history of Irish genre writing and uses it to explore how we think about fiction itself. Deeply researched, and passionately argued, SHADOW VOICES takes the lives of more than sixty writers - by turns tragic, amusing, and adventurous, but always extraordinary - and sets them alongside the stories they have written, to create a new way of looking at genre and literature, both Irish and beyond.

Here are vampires and monsters, murderers and cannibals. Here are female criminal masterminds and dogged detectives, star-crossed lovers and vengeful spouses. Here are the SHADOW VOICES.
