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

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.
