Local Man To Launch His Fantasy Novel In Tralee Bookshop

Posted by


Aidan Lucid.

A LOCAL author will launch his book at the Action Lesotho Bookshop in the Tralee Shopping Centre on Saturday, December 21, from 1pm-3pm.

Aidan Lucid’s ‘The Lost Son’ is a fantasy novel aimed at both adults and teenage readers. Aidan first began writing this novel back in 2005 while recovering from a serious accident.

In 2010, it was published under a different title, but after leaving the original publisher, he listened to feedback from readers and rewrote large sections of it, adding new characters to make it appeal to both young and old audience. The sequel is due to be released in the second half of next year.

It’s about a teenaged-boy named Henry Simmons whose life is turned upside down when he finds a magical golden coin.

Henry learns that he and three others (two pilots from 1945 and a cat named Jasper) have been chosen to save King Argoth and his people from an evil race known as the Sadarkians in a parallel medieval world called Zargothia.

Aidan Lucid began writing after a religious experience almost 20 years ago, having since been published in a number of national and international poetry anthologies.

His short stories and articles have appeared in Ireland’s Own, Ireland’s Eye and Writers’ Forum to name but a few magazines.

In 2007, he was a film critic for The Kerryman and, for a period of eight years, was an assistant editor with Bewildering Stories e-zine. Mr Lucid has also written songs for local musicians.
