Overview

A Valkyrie of Vinland.

Gylla, Bjorn and her crew are marooned on new shores as an early winter closes in fast and fierce.

There are friends, foes, and a mysterious treasure, and that's all before the gods intervene!

Welcome to the early years of Norse America!

***

A Valkyrie of Vinland is a standalone short story.

If you have already discovered Colin Taber's alternate history setting, The United States of Vinland (USV), this tale is placed in that timeline midway between USV#3: Loki's Rage and USV#4: Odin's Hall. Familiarity with the broader USV series and characters is not required. This short story is approximately 30 pages long and is a standalone tale.

About the Author

 

Colin Taber was born in Australia in 1970 and announced his intention to be a writer at the innocent age of 6. His father, an accountant, provided some cautious advice, suggesting that life might be easier if his son pursued a more predictable vocation.
Colin didn't listen.
Over the past twenty years Colin's had over a hundred magazine articles published, notably in Australian Realms Magazine. In 2009 his first novel, The Fall of Ossard, was released to open his coming of age dark fantasy series, The Ossard Trilogy. The second installment, Ossard's Hope, followed in 2011 and was supported by a national book signing tour. Currently Colin is working on the final book in that trilogy, Lae Ossard, and his new series The United States of Vinland.
Colin has done many things over the years, from working in bookshops to event management, small press publishing, landscape design and even tree farming. All he really wants to do, though, is to get back to his oak grove and be left to write.
Thankfully, with an enthusiastic and growing readership, that day is coming. He currently haunts the west coast city of Perth.
