Michael Scott
By Jamie Kee
  

1     Michael Scott, born in Dublin, is one of Ireland's most successful writers. He has written novels, short stories, movie and television scripts, documentaries, plays, games, and articles. His works, written in various genres, are for adults, young adults, and children. Scott is knowledgeable in Celtic folklore and has used this knowledge in his writings. Scott's books have extended beyond Ireland and into over thirty-seven countries. You can find his books in a number of languages such as Bulgarian, Chinese, French, Italian, Swedish, and Catalan. Scott has clearly shared his talents worldwide.
 
2     Scott started writing in 1982. Irish Folk and Fairy Tales (Volume One), published in 1983, was his first book for adults. He has published an additional two volumes of Irish Folk and Fairy Tales in UK and U.S.A. editions. Song of the Children of Lir (1983) was his first children's book. Since the publication of these books, he has written more than one-hundred books in less than a thirty year time span.
 
3     Besides his three volumes of Irish Folk and Fairy Tales, Scott has also written other adult folktales such as Irish Ghosts and Hauntings (1994), Irish Myths and Legends (1992), and The River Gods (1991). The River Gods includes twelve tales of the gods, men, and creatures that live in and upon the Irish rivers. Scott includes Irish history throughout the stories. Scott has also written numerous adult fantasy books including A Celtic Odyssey (1985), Silverhand (1995), and The Merchant Prince (2000).
 
4     Adult horror books are just another of Scott's numerous genres. Some of his books are Imp (1993), Reflection (1992), and The Hallows (1995), a book about Dyrnwyn, the Sword of Rhydderch. Scott has also written adult short stories which have been included in anthologies like Don't Forget Your Spacesuit, Dear (1996). In addition, Scott has written general interest books such as Ireland: A Graphic History (1995) and The Quiz Master (2004), about Spider, a pub-quiz expert, who enters a television quiz show only to discover that he is up against "the quiz master."
