Fergus Speaks

James Hodge

A blending of Gaelic and Cymric mythic traditions, this tale follows the birth, life and death of a figure who combines the characters and adventures of CuChulainn, the greatest hero of Irish myth and Gawain, one of the greatest knights of Arthur's British Round Table. From the Cattle Raid of Cooley, pitting all of Ireland against Ulster, to Arthur's resistance against the massive incursions of Germanic tribes, it is a tale of love and violence, honor and betrayal, magic and doom.
