    One thought on “Irish Tales of Terror”

    1. Quite a nice little collection, even if the title is a bit misleading IRISH TALES OF TERROR contains many a piece of fantasy that is not inherently terrifying But I guess IRISH TALES OF TERROR AND FANTASY doesn t roll off the tongue And some of the pieces are retellings of classic Irish folklore, or stories of hauntings But still, there s some good stuff here The Legend of Fin M Coul by William Carleton and The Fairies Revenge by Sinead de Valera are both in that folklore retold vein the former [...]

    2. Only 1 or 2 stories were true horror, like normal ghost stories from a campfire, but lengthier than needed

    3. This collection of Irish short stories doesn t exactly live up to its title, but was nonetheless, overall, enjoyable Some of the stories were terribly boring and hard to follow, while others were extremely engaging and well written Very few of the stories are what I would consider horror , but all of the stories take place in, or are written about Ireland Here were some of my favorites 1 The Soul Cages, by T Crofton Croker this a a traditional Irish tale about a man who befriends a merman, and [...]

    4. An interesting collection of tales, either by Irish authors or set in Ireland Many of the authors are well known, like Oscar Wilde, H.P Lovecraft, and Ray Bradbury, and the editor provides a short account of each author and why the specific tale was included However, I would not say that they are all terrifying Some certainly are, but others fall into folklore and other genres Wilde s The Cantervill Ghost is hilarious, and I m not quite sure how Bradbury s fits into the collection, being an acc [...]

    5. In preparation for a trip to Ireland in August, I read this collection I enjoyed Lord Dunsany s Witch Wood 1947 , a small forest that one can never leave without considerable toil and trouble Oscar Wilde s Canterville Ghost, is where Yankee ingenuity and resourcefulness overcomes the ghosts of the past W B Yeats, The Crucifixion of the Outcast 1925 is about the tragedy of one who dared to live differently in a time and place of great conformity The Friendly Demon by Daniel Defoe 1660 1731 has pa [...]

    6. This anthology should not be confused with a quite different book with exactly the same title, but edited by Jim McGarry, which I read and didn t much care for just over a year ago I did like this one Haining has constructed it as an introduction to fantastic literature for readers interested in Ireland, rather than desperately grabbing anything vaguely genre and Hibernian this does mean that some entries don t strictly fit the remit The Canterville Ghost , by Oscar Wilde, has no Irish connectio [...]

    7. This is an anthology of short stories by famous Irish mostly authors e.g Oscar Wilde, Yeats, Traditional , James Joyce, Lady Wilde and even Ray Bradbury The quality of the stories is varied, and most are only moderately interesting What fascinated me is that there is a specifically Irish terror story genre The stories are published in chronological order of original writing, which makes this a sort of history of the genre Thus, it helped me to satisfy my craving for both engaging stories and his [...]

    8. The reason I love this book, is that within it is the source of Charles Dicken s Christmas Carol Yes, he ripped off the Marley scene, almost word for word, and I ve never seen it mentioned anywhere in print Peter Haining, the editor of this book didn t even notice, or mention it But read The Friendly Demon, by Daniel Defoe, and tell me that Dickens didn t read it before writing his little story If you can find a copy, read it.

    9. As with all collections, there are classic tales including The Canterville Ghost you ve already read and some stories you were none the worst for not having read Not particularly terrifying but an entertaining enough survey for those with an interest in folk tales with a few well known authors works offering variety.

    10. While there a couple stories here that weren t awful and boring, there was nothing that could be described as terror happening here at all unless you re REALLY scared of leprechauns A accurate title for this book would be A Collection of Irish Folklore and Fairy Tales.

    11. A wonderful collection of new and old writers, specially selected for their weirdness and adherance to Irish themes A great read for both lovers of the spernatural and the short story Excellent notes on the writers precede each story, usually with some detail relating to the story itself.
