It’s Vikings past, present, and future!
Season of Marvels: Viking Tales joins my novel, Of All the Western Stars, and science fiction story collection, Stars That Sing the Requiem, on Amazon Kindle, all published by Variations on a Theme publishing.
Season of Marvels: Viking Tales is a collection of stories featuring Norse and Icelandic Vikings in fantasy and science fiction stories covering a span of time from 800A.D. to the present day, to the far distant future.
Stories include: “Viking-Trojan War,” in which 9th century Vikings and their zombie warriors encounter the University of Southern California Trojans, with a movie deal sure to follow; “The Last Ship,” in which the fate of the Greenland Vikings in the Little Ice Age may have had extraterrestrial cause; “Season of Marvels,” a fantasy story in the style of the Norse sagas, because there’s always a slavering demon in the codfish bin; “Borealis,” a science fiction novella set far in the future in which a young man and his cat attempt to manipulate a Viking-type culture, originally published in Writers of the Future, vol. IX.
