A good choice to get an idea of the sort of stories that the Aeon Award interim judges panel is looking for.
Emerald Eye is a celebration of all things fantastic in modern Irish writing. Stories of fevered imagination have been part of the Irish psyche from the oral tradition through to the present. Emerald Eye puts together the very best of modern science fiction, fantasy and horror from the pens of genre masters such as Anne McCaffrey, Bob Shaw, James White and many others. It blends them with highly imaginative work from literary masters like William Trevor and Mike McCormack. A heady mix to thrill, to scare, but most of all to enjoy.
