The story of genre fiction - horror, romantic fiction, science
fiction, crime writing, and more - is also the story of Irish fiction.
Irish writers have given the world Lemuel Gulliver, Dracula, and the
world of Narnia. They have produced pioneering tales of detection,
terrifying ghost stories and ground-breaking women's popular fiction.
Now, for the first time, John Connolly's one volume presents the history
of Irish genre writing and uses it to explore how we think about
fiction itself.

Deeply researched, and passionately argued,
SHADOW VOICES takes the lives of more than sixty writers - by turns
tragic, amusing, and adventurous, but always extraordinary - and sets
them alongside the stories they have written, to create a new way of
looking at genre and literature, both Irish and beyond. Here are
vampires and monsters, murderers and cannibals. Here are female criminal
masterminds and dogged detectives, star-crossed lovers and vengeful
spouses.

Here are the SHADOW VOICES.

John Connolly

John Connolly is an Irish writer who is best known for his series of novels starring private detective Charlie Parker.

After five years as a freelance journalist for The Irish Times newspaper, he began to write his first novel, Every Dead Thing, in his spare time (he continues to contribute articles to the paper, most frequently interviews with other established authors).

Connolly has since written further books in the Parker series, 19 as of 2019, and a non-Parker thriller, as well as venturing outside of the crime genre with the publication of first, an anthology of ghost stories and later, a novel about a young boy's coming-of-age journey through a fantasy realm during World War II England.
