In a world in which horses survived to flourish in 13th-century America, the wars and rivalries of thirteenth-century Ireland have new players: the mysterious warriors from across the Western Sea, called by some the "ó Gonklins." They and their Irish hosts have much in common--enough to misunderstand one another far more than utter aliens ever could.

This story was anthologized in Gardner Dozois' The Year's Best Science Fiction: Twenty-Ninth Annual Collection (2012).
