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

It was a different tale of The Hound, Cuculain, that first piqued my interest in the ancient legends of Ireland, but this version is very satisfying as well.

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

My late mother-in-law was born in ireland and her hometown, Dundalk, is where Cuculain was said to have lived. My first visit to that are

BOOKS by Theodore Sturgeon
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

I know you didn't bring me out here to drown
So why am I ten feet under and upside down
Barely surviving has become my purpose
Cause I'm so used to living underneath the surface
