The Who and the Why of Peadar Ó Guilín

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 following years, it was to be translated into numerous languages from Turkish to 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 in North America in March 2012.

The Deserter

In June 2014, Peadar published The Volunteer, the third and final volume of the series.


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. More recently, his work has been turning up in audio format in places like pseudopod.org and podcastle.org.

Peadar currently lives in Dublin, where he toils day and night for a giant computer corporation.
