Our final reader for February came all the way from Iceland, via London where he now lives and works.
Snorri Kristjansson is a former actor and stand-up comic turned author whose debut novel, The Swords of Good Men, is attracting a lot of favorable attention. As the publisher's blurb says, it’s got a mad king determined to bring the White Christ to the masses, a mysterious and beautiful woman drawing the souls of dead warriors to her cause, a gentle blacksmith with dangerous blood and a young hero, who has a lot to learn about the cruelty of the world.
Snorri's performance includes the first ever public reading from Blood Will Follow, the second book in the Valhalla Saga, which is due for release this summer. As the books are about Vikings, a certain amount of drinking, murder, pillage and general mayhem is involved. Also beards, but no horns on helmets.
