Irish Imbas: Celtic Mythology Collection 2018
Over the past centuries, many Celtic cultural tales and beliefs have been relegated to the status of children’s stories or cartoonish caricature, misunderstood and misinterpreted for as long as most of us can remember.
This third collection of short stories follows on from the previous 2016 and 2017 collections, with a fresh group of contemporary authors hauling Celtic stories out of the shadows, back into the light where they belong. Love, mystery, drama, these fascinating tales mark a new movement of authentic and original Celtic-based writing and a better understanding of the Celtic cultures. Accompanied by explanatory notes on the background cultural context, this latest collection includes stories on the Selkie, changelings, crow messengers to the dead and the infamous tale of Labhraidh Loingseach.
