Readers of fantasy have always been aware of the Celtic influences on the development of fantasy literature.

In fact six of the giants of fantasy writing are Irish, and it is their work that is represented in this anthology: Charles R Maturin, Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu, Fitzjames O'Brien, Bram Stoker, M.P. Shiel, and Lord Dunsay.
