Hilliary (hilliary-ca) | -1 comments This book is a fictionalization of the Celtic Myth story of Nuada Silverhand. Written in English. I believe it might be very late, 70's early 80's, and was a paperback with a very intricate, bright illustration on the front, possibly drawn by Jim Fitzpatrick. If anyone can identify any book about Nuada Silverhand, I'd love to hear about it, not just this one!!

Hilliary (hilliary-ca) | -1 comments Maybe, I'll check it out. Thanks!!

Hilliary (hilliary-ca) | -1 comments I very much enjoyed The Silver Arm by Jim Fitzpatrick, but I don't think it was the novel I was looking for. What I'm looking for was in more of a regular novel format than The Silver Arm turned out to be (it was more of a blank verse epic poem format). Any other suggestions?

Natasha | 203 comments I feel like I've read this. I definitely went through a run of Celtic mythology. Something by Morgan Llywelyn?

Hilliary (hilliary-ca) | -1 comments I don't think Morgan Llywelyn's Silverhand is it, but I will be reading it shortly, and I suspect I will enjoy it! I think it was written too recently, and Llywelyn's style isn't quite right. Any other suggestions?

Natasha | 203 comments I'll keep thinking, but not off the top of my head. I just know I went through a lot of Morgan Llywelyn at the time!

K.L., are you thinking of The Silver Hand by Stephen R. Lawhead from The Song of Albion series?
