Science fiction stories by Seán Ó Muireagáin

Ó Muireagáin creates surreal worlds for his characters to inhabit in these stories.  Distopian stories in barbaric cruel places, but always with enough realism that we recognise the truth of these worlds. These shifts in perspective allow us to see more clearly the injustices and inequity of our own world.

The story ‘An Chóir Chodlata’ won the Mhaolánaigh prize in the Oireachtas Literary competition in 2018

This collection of science fiction short stories by Belfast-born author Seán Ó Muireagáin blurs the boundaries between reality and fiction in its dystopian style.

Nominated for Irish Language Book of the Year

..The perfect book, I highly recommend it!

There are five stories in this latest collection by Seán Ó Muireagáin, five visions of a world which possibly could exist. He creates a universe in each story, and as is natural for good imaginative fiction it is the people, their modes conduct and the consequences of their actions that are central to each story. But they are not without hope.

..One of the best science fiction stories I've read...

..They are full of imagination, and I really loved that...

His first short story collection, Gáire in Éag (2018), received great praise, and although there may be a change in subject and form in these new stories the same skilfulness can be found.

'Bádh B'fhéidir' will open the mind of the reader...

This is one of the best collections of short stories that has been published in a couple years...
