Far Darrig by Ed Sullivan

I liked that Ed continued (and modified) the theme from the March flash contest in this story. It was nice to see the story of the leprechaun's missing gold resolved. I know from my own experience that sometimes you start off trying to write a flash story, but you end up with more story than will fit in the word limit. Sometimes the flash story just keeps going and becomes a short story instead, but sometimes the flash story ends but leaves room for a sequel, like in this case. Anyway, I wouldn't mind reading more of these modern fantasy stories of Ed's, maybe each one using a different color. (The way Ed uses color in these stories reminds me a little of Piers Anthony's Xanth novels.)

I'd also be happy to consider for publication in the flash section any other sequels to stories from the flash contest. :wink:
