This book re-imagines the psalms as songs of love and devotion between human beings, rather than supplications toward a distant, silent God.

Greed, love, lust, mind control, ancient fables, mythology, a sick planet. A man is chosen to save the world from all the evils that hold and threaten that world, that threaten every person and every creature alive. The cover is a painting I did for this story.

An epic tale of adventure told in verse, with lines in traditional Anglo-Saxon. Discussed and approved by scholars. Includes full introduction and translation notes. Fyrdhwæt is unloved and rejected by his people. Valiantly he slays three terrible monsters, but his bravery goes un-acclaimed. The poem is romantic, sad, exciting and very much open to interpretation.
