Sorry I can't take your call right now but I'm off saving the world cover art by Cliodhna Lyons

Sorry I can't take your call right now but I'm off saving the world is an anthology published in 2008 by Cliodhna Lyons as a tribute to her father, Conor Lyons, and a fundraiser for the Irish international development charity GOAL, for whom he had worked in Sri Lanka. The title, and the theme of the anthology, was taken from the message Conor would leave on his answering machine when he was working abroad. Sales of the book have to date raised over 5000 euro for GOAL.
