A collection of twelve terzanelle poems influenced by Norse mythology, specifically regarding the afterlife. The poems explore key locations and concepts of the Germanic underworld. Yeah, this is pretty obscure stuff even for fans of the mythology.

This is my second poetry collection. Most of these poems are written in medieval fixed forms – one of my on-going quests being a search for ways of reproducing the sound and feel of medieval Welsh poetry in modern English. And yet, because the bardic art I practice is a performance art, these are in a larger sense not my poems at all, but merely pale imitations – poems preserved on paper.

This is a collection of poetry taken from the "Young Gwernin" trilogy of the Storyteller series: historical novels about Britain and her bards in the years after King Arthur's death. If you haven't read them yet, you might want to start there, as some of these poems could be considered plot spoilers. On the other hand, you could just plunge in now and see how you like Gwernin's world...
