A Fire in His Head
Stories of Wandering Aengus
A roller-coaster ride with heroes, immortals, monsters, and mind readers through the magical world of Celtic storytelling
Aengus, the god of love, embarks into the unknown in pursuit of the girl of his dreams. The result is a unique fantastical adventure that takes the theme of W. B. Yeats's poem "The Song of Wandering Aengus" as its motif, and draws into its telling a rich Celtic legacy of myth, legend, and language.
