Tales of the Celtic Otherworld by John Matthews

Infinite possibilities, marvelous beings, and objects of extraordinary beauty: welcome to the Celtic other-world, a place not misty and insubstantial, but almost as real as our earth. An entire genre, known as Immrama (Journeys), presents this alternative universe, with its dazzling crystal doors and windows, plentiful food and drink, absence of sickness, and abundant nobility. Sometimes, it lies underwater, at other times, its an island, and time passes almost unnoticed there. Through some of the most celebrated stories in Celtic literature, travel to this magic, splendid realm. In The Voyage of Bran, the sweet singing and enticing verses of an unknown woman lead a young King away from the life he had always known. Plunderers, monstrous ants, demon horse races, a burning river, and much more greet Maildun during his sag Other tales relate the adventures of such well-known heroes as Cu Chulainn, Connla the Fair, Cormac, Nera, and 10 others. Throughout, original watercolors succeed in capturing all the magic of the Otherworld.
