The first three books in the Celtic Pocket Guides series: Irish Myths in Your Pocket, Samhain in Your Pocket, and Irish Monsters in Your Pocket

Hi, I. E. Kneverday here. That’s definitely not my real name, by the way, but I’m sure you figured that out already given your exceptional intellect—you did have the good sense to navigate to the “books” section of this website, after all.

I should clarify that these are all books I wrote (or edited/anthologized) and published under my Mt. Misery Press imprint. (Three cheers for independent publishing!)

I pour my heart, soul, and several liters of black coffee into these books. Please enjoy them, and cherish them, then give them away and buy new copies. You never know when a hardcover collector’s edition of one of these titles is going to drop. (Actually, you will know…if you follow my author profile on Amazon.)

But I digress.

Irish Myths in Your Pocket (Celtic Pocket Guides 1)

The perfect pocket-sized primer for grasping the basics of Irish mythology, including how it differs from Celtic mythology; its main heroes, gods, and monsters; and the many magical weapons wielded on its battlefields.

Samhain in Your Pocket (Celtic Pocket Guides 2)

Perhaps the most important holiday on the ancient Celtic calendar, Samhain marks the end of summer and the beginning of a new pastoral year. It is a liminal time—a time when the forces of light and darkness, warmth and cold, growth and blight, are in conflict. A time when the barrier between the land of the living and the land of the dead is at its thinnest. A time when all manner of spirits and demons are wont to cross over from the Celtic Otherworld.

Irish Monsters in Your Pocket (Celtic Pocket Guides 3)

In the Ireland of myth and legend, “spooky season” is every season. Spirits roam the countryside, hovering above the bogs. Werewolves lope through forests under full moons. Dragons lurk beneath the waves. Granted, there’s no denying that Samhain (Halloween’s Celtic predecessor) tends to bring out some of the island’s biggest, baddest monsters. Prepare yourself for (educational) encounters with Irish cryptids, demons, ghouls, goblins, and other supernatural beings. Learn more…
