Speculative poems by Eileen Kernaghan. A Canadian novelist, and three-time winner of the Aurora award, her novel 'Wild Talent' was shortlisted for the 2009 Sunburst award for Canadian Literature of the Fantastic.
As do all her poems, Eileen's eight historical fantasy novels reflect a lifelong fasination with history, ancient cultures, and lost civilizations. They vary in their settings from the prehistoric Indus Valley anf eighteenth-century Bhutan to Elizabethan England and nineteenth-century Scandinavia.Review -
'Acclaimed Canadian author Eileen Kernaghan is known both for her painstaking historical research and her interest in diverse cultural and historical manifestations of spirituality. Wild Talent is no exception.' -Ursula Pflug, The New York Review of Science Fiction. Review #2 -
'Kernaghan has touched something deep and visceral with these verses. You will read them once, then, in the middle of the night, wake suddenly, shivering, and need to read them again. Eileen Kernaghan neither lights a single candle nor curses the darkness - she swallows ir whole and then sets it on fire.' - Sandra Kasturi, author of The Animal Bridegroom.
