The Pirate Ghost (Formerly known as the Curmudgeon)
It's been a long time since I read this, so I'll just make this short... at least I hope so.

This is one of the first books I read that got me hooked on fantasy elements and knights and sorcerors . Fergus McRough and Cuculain, a sorceror a sorcoress, Full scale battles, bloody fights, damsels in distress, spears flying swords ringing... and then, I came to learn that this was based on historical, mythical characters ...what a wonderful tale to be told!

I am one of those who tend to build pictures

Even Calatin, if his final speech is to be believed, has more depth to him than simply a lust for power.

A Storm Upon Ulster by Kenneth C. Flint is "the writer at work," and working with love and care and a hell of a lot of homework. It's a retelling of the myth of the mighty Irish hero Cuculain, the warrior from Ulster who, single-handed, held back all the armies of all the southern kingdoms for the better part of a week. Let me say of the book, quickly and briefly (because I want to share with you what it evoked in me), that it is splendidly structured and paced, full of brilliant scenes, smells, ...more
