The light of the North. An Owen bush/ Petr Florianek collaboration on a mythical Norse sword


James Simonds

Recommended Posts

Loving this whole concept and execution. I don't have the Kindle thingy, so I'll have to wait for the paperback version.

“So I'm lightin' out for the territory, ahead of the scared and the weak and the mean spirited, because Aunt Sally is fixin’ to adopt me and civilize me, and I can't stand it. I've been there before.”

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.

Yeah, what they said!  Very well done.
I'll be honest, I'm not much into Vikings, swords, weapons and such, but the craftsmanship is marvelous, enough to make me check out the Amazon link and forward this to a friend who is into this stuff.  Congrats and good luck with the book!

That's kind of you, but don't worry about the book, the PR stuff is for elsewhere. This is all about the sword.

Paperback will be out on the 12th of march! So those of us who like real books actually get it first.

Except you cannot preorder the paper book.

True, you cannot! (Amazon doesnt let self published authors do pre-ordering, for..... literally no conceivable reason) but you would still have got it before the e-book published on the 19th.

however, due to boring COVID admin reasons, the launch date was moved up, and its actually today! So both versions are now available, worldwide, for your reading enjoyment. ;)

Just finished the video at Tod's before I came here.

 

Words don't do it justice.

Thanks Josh. I was waiting to hear some feedback on it. I’ll order a copy.
