The Goths: Children of the Storm
- Hails frijandeis,
I am proud to announce that my book, The Goths: Children of the Storm, has now appeared and is available at the www.iuniverse.com website. The complete link is
although it may easier to view it by going to iUniverse.com, then click on "new releases", and my book is starting life as #22.
It will also be available online at www.amazon.com as well as at www.barnesandnoble.com within a few days to a week. I will also be presenting from it at the Los Angeles Festival of Books on April 25 and 26.
Two of our most steadfast friends and colleagues contributed huge amounts to this work, namely our Llama Nom and our distinguished Ingemar Nordgren.
The book itself is hard to describe. It represents Gothic history from the personal perspectives of the Goths themselves. Id does so in the form of poetry with interspersed historical "guided tours" written in what approaches prose poetry. The historical detail is found in copious appended notes covering the evidence, archaeological, linguistic and (ahem!) even some historians. The poems are introduced for context (like the dialogue in a musical, setting the mood for the song), and they are what give the Goths, real or fictitious, some real humanity.
Hope you like it!
