Introducing The Northlore Series

I have been given permission to show you guys the cover of the first in a trilogy of books being published by Nordland Publishing, inspired by the old tales of the North. This first book is an anthology of stories and poetry featuring aspects of Scandinavian folklore, (the second is planned to be focused upon ‘myths’), and also includes some great illustrations too. I have a poem and a story included in it, but don’t let that put you off. It is a great and varied collection of work that is diverse enough to meet all tastes. image I am particularly pleased with my story as, although I have had poetry featured in various collections and publications, this is the first piece of fiction that I have had published, and I think it stands up okay alongside work by more seasoned writers. I will let you guys know the publication date as soon as I get it, and then, if you so wish, we may walk the North road together. Exciting times! image

  1. That’s exciting, Andy. My hearty congratulations! I look forward to reading the series when it’s available. My wedding ring originally belonged to my husband’s great-grandmother who came to the U.S. from Sweden with her husband Gustav Alfred Persson about 120 years ago. So, you see, I have great interest in Scandinavian folklore.

    • Thank you Mary πŸ™‚ how great to have a ring with such history connected to it! Not sure if you’ve read the series of four books (The Emigrants) by Vilhelm Moberg, written in the forties and fifties? They may be of interest to you as they concern Swedes travelling to live in America. I’ve not read them myself, but I’ve heard of them. They are regarded as classic literature.
