PRLog - Jul. 24, 2014 - PITTSBURGH -- Dateline, July 24th, 2014. Pittsburgh, PA - Australian author and academic youth psychiatrist, Brendan Murphy, has been signed to Phantasm Books, an imprint of Assent Publishing, Pittsburgh, PA in a six book deal. His YA fantasy series, Sebastian and the Hibernauts, explores the psychological and moral landscape of a brutalised boy turning teenager and is both an homage to Celtic mythology and an allegory of the Troubles in Ireland. In the first instalment, Beyond the Gloaming, a cowardly Yorkshire lad must brave the ghostly Gloaming to save the Celtic dreamworld of his ancestors. The book introduces Hibercadia, a world brimful of hunkypunks and gobbleratches, quizzing glasses and magic shillelaghs, mechanical fireworks and night rainbows, tragedy and joy. Assent's President, Les Denton, is 'thrilled to have this fantastic YA series at Phantasm Books'. For further information contact the author at www.brendanmurphyauthor.com and www.hibernauts.com or Assent Publishing at www.assentpublishing.com.
