 In September 2007, Peadar Ó Guilín published his first novel, ‘ The Inferior,’ which the Times Educational Supplement called “a stark, dark tale, written with great energy and confidence and some arresting reflections on human nature.” Foreign editors liked it too, and over the coming year it is to be translated into eight languages, including Japanese and Korean.    

His second novel, ‘The Deserter’ is a direct sequel to ‘The Inferior’ and received its first outing on 5th May 2011 in the UK and Ireland. It was published this month in North America by Random House Children’s Books.
Peadar’s fantasy and SF short stories have appeared in numerous venues, including Black Gate magazine and an anthology celebrating the best of the iconic Weird Tales. 
He also published a well-received comic strip for younger readers, “Sneaky, The Smartest Elephant in the World” with the DFC.
Peadar was born in Cork, grew up in Donegal, and now lives in Dublin.
