Join the Alfheim Fantasy Book Group to discuss local author Doug Rossman’s latest book, “Walker in Shadows: A Nine Worlds Saga,” on Thursday November 14 at 7 p.m. at the Decorah Public Library.
Caught between the love-goddess Freyja and the death-goddess Hel in their struggle for possession of his spirit, the slain hero Faragrim becomes one of the living dead… and a hunter of trolls, some of the nastiest ones you hope never to meet! Even the elf-wizard Formindar, his neice, Aelas, and her husband, Dag Ormseeker, are drawn into the struggle before it reaches a thrilling and unexpected conclusion.
Reviewer and author Jodie Forrest proclaims “Rossman has done it again: created a set of interlocking short stories that both reflect upon and amplify the rich cosmos of Norse mythology, which he explores with a scholar’s eye and a poets heart while mapping new paths for his readers to follow.”
Alfheim meets at the library at 7 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month. Meetings are open to the public; all ages are welcome. Call 382-3717 for more information.
