19/6/19: In an Alternate Ireland, Captain Leary…


Big congratulations to my friend and co-author (on economics and finance matters), Prof. Brian M. Lucey @brianmlucey on his debut in fiction writing... unlike in our usual finance papers, suspenseful dulness of stats and econometric has been suspended by him to narrate the tale of Captain Leary (not, not the one of the Ryanair empire, who in "an alternate Ireland... battles to save the Emperor [not Bertie], save the space elevator [not in an Anglo-funded building], dodge the assassins [not the Russian variety, I am assuming], thwart English terrorists [Brexit forecasts?]" and deliver "flowers for the girl". Oh, yes... it is available right here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07TC8LNFS/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?keywords=learys+empire&qid=1560951929&s=gateway&sr=8-1
