Ó Guilín, Peadar

Tagged: Author

(?   -    ) Irish author whose ongoing Young Adult Bone World Trilogy series, beginning with The Inferior (2007), is located in what may be a Pocket Universe, possibly Underground, or perhaps within a Generation Starship; in this venue, the "Human" tribe finds itself in constant conflict with non-human groups, and a strange woman falls (it seems) from the Roof. Various groups speak to each other with the aid of a magic box, which may be an instant translation device. The plot thickens in The Deserter (2011), where, not unpredictably, some disease or malfunction seems to have afflicted the governors (or governing AIs) who control life below the Roof, and the City embedded above the hollow world has become dysfunctional.
