Folklore_Cover_Boxshot_thick_cheatFolklore is the first of the Northlore trilogy. It is an eclectic mix of stories and poems, all inspired by traditional Scandinavian folklore.

The purpose of this collection is to create new tales that take inspiration from the myths and fables of Northern Europe. They should stay true to the principles of the original tales (so no flying trolls, or Elves with Laser vision, for example) but they should be original (not retellings).

The stories take place in several countries, and cover a time-frame from the Viking period (“Hold the Door”) right up to modern day (“The Edge of Darkness”).

This is not the first release from Nordland Publishing, but it is our first anthology. We are a small Norwegian company, and we are delighted to say that we received contributions from many parts of the world.

Folklore combines the work of a wide range of contributors; from previously unpublished amateurs, to award winning poets and best selling authors.
