Now that classes are winding down at Virginia Tech, I’m putting together a new book, a collection of fiction set in the Viking Age. It’ll be composed of previously published works: three short stories and one novella. “Mead-Sweet” was included in Wings: Subversive Gay Angel Erotica, edited by Todd Gregory. “Loki’s Boy” appeared in Raising Hell: Demonic Gay Erotica, edited by Todd Gregory. “1066 AD” was published in Lust in Time: Erotic Romance through the Ages, edited by Rob Rosen, and “The Saga of Einar and Gisli” was one of four novellas included in On the Run: Tales of Gay Pursuit and Passion, edited by Jerry L. Wheeler. I’ve completed the introduction and am now working on the bibliography, a list of Icelandic sagas and nonfiction books about the Viking Age, all of which have influenced my own Norse-themed fiction. I can’t wait to see what kind of hot cover the folks at Lethe Press will come up with!
Do you have Norse/Viking ancestry or just a penchant for the genre? I’m looking forward to reading them!
Hey, good question! I’m interested in things Norse because of my German ancestry…since the Norse gods were Germanic gods first. I really hope you like the fiction!
Mmmmm, VIKINGS. My favorite.
The book’s due out in September! A very hot cover to come!
