"from the secret places of Eire"
THE FAERIE GIRL and other tales

COUNTY WICKLOW, IRELAND, SUMMER 1845 THE FIRST TIME COLIN BARRINGTON SAW THE WILD GIRL, HE KNEW SHE WAS A faerie. He crouched in the bushes of and tried to breathe as silently as possible. The air smelled of leaves and water. Thorns pricked the backs of his hands, and his trousers were damp and muddy at the knees.
She knelt at the edge of the small pond hidden in the heart of the woods. Dark hair tangled about her sharp features...

THURSDAY November 12th at 7pm: Monsters & Myth - AMYCUS pt2

 

"Revenge, love and greed"
Monsters & Mythology
AMYCUS pt2

Amycus – a brass-headed giant born of Brontes, the cleverest of the Cyclopes, and Liana, a beautiful young Nereid. The huge, one-eyed Brontes falls in love with Liana, but she refuses he advances because of his ugly face. The wise Cyclops then forges himself a head of gold – replaced later by a head of brass – which wins him the favor of the sea nymph he loves. Little does he suspect that their passion will one day give birth to an evil giant who will terrorize all the land.
Amycus soon becomes a pawn in the fierce battle between Athena, the goddess of wisdom, and Poseidon god of the sea, who each wish to rule a certain small fishing village that is destined to grow into a great and brilliant city. Also involved in the struggle are the heroic Spartan twins, Castor and Pollux, who are joined by Jason, the future leader of the Argonauts, as they journey to the island of Bebrycos to slay Amycus.
The story of Amycus revolves around jealousy and revenge, love and greed, as brave Spartans and an exiled king challenge flame-spitting dragons and a brass-headed giant in a violent struggle for honor and glory. The feud between two mighty gods grows more and more viscous as it entangles thousands of lives, causing countless deaths and spawning a multitude of monsters – the worst of which is the Horrible Head, Amycus.
