I love Andrew Greeley, and this was NOT a book of fiction by him alone. It has several authors; and each one gives insight into the lore of Ireland.
God bless the Little people!
Short stories by many authors. Some are set in modern times, some recount the Old Tales. All of them involve Irish magic in some form or another. I don't think I have read any other stories set in modern times involving leprechauns (did you know they like sushi?) and other little people. A couple of the stories involve vampires, one set in the 19th century and one today. There is a good recounting of Finn MacCool's son Oisin and Tir na Nog. In general, an interesting read.
Irish stories that warm the heart, tickle the funnybone and make the reader sigh with compassion. Loved them all.
Emerald Magic is a collection of 15 short Irish stories eight about the little people and seven about Irish fantasy. All of the stories are well-written and told.
If ever a disservice was done to the little people it was done by Disney when he made the leprechaun a fun little wish granter. These stories bring you the real stories of the little people a not so nice group of scaly wags.
A lovely collection of stories to be savored.
