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
