From the Amazon #1 Bestselling Author
Three short stories set in Ireland. The first story, Perhaps A Few, happens just before Ireland's devastating potato famine of 1845-49. Troika is a story from the dark 1930s, while Blitzkrieg Ireland 2016 considers what might happen during the centenary of the 1916 Easter Rising, the event that led to Ireland's independence. These stories are entirely speculative, creative fiction. It is a given that Ireland has had a pretty sorry history; Ireland Trilogy brings some of the formative forces into sharp focus.

GARY J BYRNES (Dublin, Ireland) is an Amazon number one thriller writer whose stories are edgy, controversial page-turners. Nominated for the Crime Writers' Association Debut Dagger Award with acclaimed Limerick crime thriller PURE MAD, published in 2009. Has also published atheist/DNA conspiracy thriller THE GOD VIRUS (2011) and a series of kids' thrillers about witches and magic in Ireland, WITCH GRANNIES. Currently (January 2013) finalising THE WRITER AND OTHER STORIES shorts collection and two new thrillers. VAMPIRE STORY is his debut short film. Gary also publishes a humour Facebook magazine, THE POTATO IRELAND, and actively promotes secularism in SECULAR IRELAND. Gary says: Stories are what make us human. The beauty about writing fiction is that there really are no limits. Fiction is so powerful that the world is controlled by it, from the Bible to political manifestos. But my fiction is about escape, entertainment and excitement. Pure Mad, my crime thriller, is set in Limerick, Ireland and was nominated for the UK Crime Writers' Association Debut Dagger. I've since revisited the work and published The Author's Cut. The God Virus is a wild conspiracy thriller about an atheist forensics scientist who gets hold of DNA samples that raise huge questions about the origin of humanity, the power of religion and the ultimate questions of life, God and where we're going as a species. I try to focus on building strong and interesting characters and letting them breathe in plots that have no limits. My stories are edgy, controversial and, I hope, like nothing you've read before. I want you to enjoy my writing and would love to hear your thoughts and opinions on my Facebook author page at If you like my work, please give it a rating and review here on Amazon. What's most important to me is that you're reading. So thanks, Gary J Byrnes
