Burrahobbits, 03-25-03

Last night the Burrahobbits, our local branch of the Mythopoeic Society, met for its monthly book discussion, at the home of Sue Blom. Topic was "The Hounds of the Morrigan," by Pat O'Shea. This is a young-peoples' fantasy set in Ireland in the early part of the twentieth century. The book was enjoyed by everyone for its humour, original characters, and bold treatment of historical Irish archetypes. We also set our reading list for the remainder of this year:

April 22 "The Devil Wives of Li Fong" by E. Hoffman Price; at Sue Blom's
May 27 "Lion's Blood" by Steven Barnes; at residence of Pat Bowne
June 24 "Artemis Fowl" by E. Colfer; at residence of Dave Hoose
July 22 "A Canticle for Leibowitz" by Walter Miller and summer picnic; at residence of Peter Schuessler
August 26 "The Worm Ourobouros" by E.R. Eddison; at Jan's/Jeff Long's residence.

Sept. 23 "Tain Bo Cuailnge" (Cuchulain's cattle rustling tale) trans. L. Winfred Faraday, 2002, at residence of Don Mueller
Oct. 28 "Ghost Stories" by M.R. James; at residence of Gregory Rihn and Georgie Schnobrich
Nov. 25 "Return of the King" by JRR Tolkien; at Sue Blom's
