Since January 2015, for every Friday, we have featured an Irish author or resident, or a piece of science fiction, fantasy or horror fiction relating to Ireland, providing a free extract for you to read. We’ve had exclusives, supported new authors, reintroduced some classics, and had an eclipse! We’ve featured fans, videos, lectures, curios, and the whole dúramánta of Ireland’s wonderful, vibrant SFFH history. Here, we present every single IFF entry, as well as links to each entry, where you can read more about the authors, access the free extract and celebrate all things Irish with us.
