It’s official! Dawn Drums won first place in the historical fiction category! The official announcement came this morning. I greatly appreciate all the folks who took time to vote for me and will update you on further news about the prize.
I’m pleased and honored that Editor Sue Babcock chose to feature Demon’s Due in the current issue of Youth Imagination. The story details another adventure of Bogerd, my middle aged viking character.

Interested in Viking Berserker stories? My Bogerd is a berserker, but a decent one and a grandfather, too – perhaps something like Fritz Leiber’s Fafhrd in his declining years? I thank editor Michael Pennington for including it in this issue of Aurora Wolf!
