Description for It Rose Up: A Selection of Lost Irish Fantasy Stories Paperback. THIS IS A PREORDER - DUE TO BE DELIVERED ON OR AROUND THE PUBLICATION DATE OF 13 NOVEMBER 2020. 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. With strange combinations of occultism, electricity, magic and playfully Biblical archetypes, the fifteen darkly funny stories in this book illuminate a side of Irish literary history that is often overlooked. Edited and introduced by Jack Fennell, this collection of lesser-known works of classic Irish fantasy includes stories by Moira O’Neill, Dora Sigerson Shorter, Charles Stuart Villiers, Charlotte McManus and George Egerton.
