* Major Announcement
We have been publishing for five years now. Due to the uncertainty the world is now facing, and the fact that I have not been as good a businessman, in getting donations or selling ads, as I am a Celtic guide, I have decided to only publish twice in 2017. From the beginning I wanted this publication to be organic, and organic things are subject to seasons. Consider this move an adjustment to the season, one that can change with new circumstances.
I very much appreciate the 17 countries we've heard from, all the musicians who let us feature their music, and who did interviews with us, and all the photographers, illustrators, and writers, from archeologists to romance writers (and just about everything else in between), who helped build this incredible library of Celtic stories.
The two 2017 issues will be published in May and in November. See the current issue for more information. Thank you to all!
At left is our 52nd issue!!!!!
...our December 2016 "Gifts" issue.
It's another great issue, with lots of unique articles not found elsewhere. Once more, we invite you to enjoy.

Clicking on the cover image above will take you to the sixth and final issue for 2016. The Past Issues tab above will take you to ALL earlier issues, which can all be accessed FREE.
Our December issue features a cover with a photo I took in the year 2000, in the Highlands of Scotland. There are two interviews inside, plus many other "gifts" from some great writers! Plus there are two new songs posted to our Free Music tab, for streaming.
We have networked around the world in an amazing way. Just look at this list – USA, Canada, Scotland, Ireland, England, Wales, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, South Africa, Portugal, Spain, Germany, Poland, Romania, Austria and France.That makes contributions from 17 countries around the world. It's crazy man!
Of course, there is always the Facebook page with tons of postings there, too.
We are approaching 19,000 Facebook 'likes'!
We've receive anywhere from 2,000 to 5,000 hits each month on this site, depending somewhat on the time of year. About half are unique visitors, and the other half, returning readers. The stats typically spike just as a new issue comes out. We have had over 200,000 total hits since we started four and a half years ago! Facebook hits double that amount, at least, so we are pretty well-read around the world.
All of our issues celebrate Celtic heritage, and all are available free using the tabs above, as well as the music you can also stream for free. We certainly hope you enjoy our completely volunteer efforts! We're still here, dedicated to Celtic storytelling.
Enjoy the December issue as you celebrate Christmas, while holding tight to your love of all things Celtic. Meanwhile, we'll do our part to bring family together around the this time of year.
Next year's two issues (see posting to the left) are under consideration, right now, for content, etc. There will be no themes next year, though. Publication dates were set around Beltaine and Samhain.
Happy Holidays, and thank you to everyone.
BTW, A group of school kids from Colorado sent along a story which has several genealogical sources listed below it, if anyone is interested in furthering their research.
