About the Author:

Paul Kearney was born in Northern Ireland. He studied Old Norse, Middle English and Anglo Saxon at Oxford University, and subsequently lived for several years in both Denmark and the United States. His first novel was published at the age of 25 in 1992. He has been a professional writer ever since. He lives in County Down, in a croft with a boat by the door.


" loved the book...Paul Kearney's plain but poised prose makes this majestic fantasy in the Mythago Wood mould all the more magical. Twenty-odd years on from its first publication date, and long since out of print, A Different Kingdom remains "a tale [...] worthy of savouring. It is a thing to be embroidered and dived into. It is a thing to be mined and smelted and reforged with every telling." I can only hope this much prettier edition reaches the leagues of new readers it rates."
