SCI-FI/Fantasy Snack Box
When you buy our March snack box, mentally you’re here: in an Irish pub in front of a roaring fire, the soft scent of heather wafting over you, with a mug full of steaming hot chocolate in one hand and a copy of Opulent Syntax in the other.
Opulent Syntax - Contemporary Irish Speculative Fiction
A bog body meets crazed science in rural Kerry. Fraught impulses and witchy machinations in a rainy Midlands back garden. Dublin is at once a near future capitalist hell and the eye of a dystopian snowstorm. In Antrim, the past and future arm wrestle for prominence, and in Belfast, a blade of grass means nothing and everything.
Discover an Ireland in these pages that defies existence and expectations. These stories represent a syntax opulent with possibilities alongside speculations and corrections of what nearly was, what may be and what could come to be.
The anthology includes stories and poems from Anna Loughran, Samuel Poots, Natasha Calder, Méabh de Brún, Yves Donlon, Fergal Mc Nally, Elaine McIonyn, Rien Gray, Maria O'Brien, Val Nolan, Scotty Sarafian, Anna Walsh, Eoghan Smith and James Hudson.
The Idea: Released monthly, our sci/fi fantasy snack box will include a novella or short story collection of fewer than 160 pages, hand selected by our booksellers. It will also include other goodies that will help set the mood for your new book adventure. For $35 you will not just be receiving a book but an immersive reading experience.
How Will It Work: The cost of the Sci-Fi/Fantasy Snack Box is $35/month. We are offering free pickup in store and free local delivery within 5 miles of Copper Dog Books as well as shipping via ground or priority.
