Overview

In this hard-boiled modern fantasy, a golden pocket watch from Ireland sets Shawn O'Gale on a cross-country journey into danger. On the way, he encounters ruthless gangsters, hard-to-kill hired thugs, a hungry coyote, a mad Russian, several incredibly sexy women, and a dose of supernatural peril. Through it all, good fortune and sharp wits keep Shawn in one piece. But can even the famed "luck o' the Irish" save this charming rogue from the wiles of Las Vegas?

Newly revised with author's "about the story" section!

"I found Luck o' the Irish delightful, and once started I had to finish it in one sitting. Whimsical, serious, clever, and engaging, it's a darn good read."
-- Jean Rabe, USA Today bestselling Dragonlance author

"With this gem of a novella, the prolific and prodigious Sullivan is in top form; not a word is wasted in his sleek and surprising comedic-fantasy yarn. Charming, outlandish, and propulsive in equal measure, Luck o' the Irish is the real McCoy--and that's no blarney!"
-- Paul McComas, author of Planet of the Dates
