An Ill Wind.... There's something unnerving about the October north wind. It makes a wolf in the wilderness turn southward, in search of dangerous prey. It gets inside people, opening their minds to bizarre ideas and inclining them to violence. Of course there's the comet too, a spectacular one, tracked by ordinary people and by not-so-ordinary cult members. Something's gu...more

In a Minnesota college town, a born-again Christian, country-music DJ is recruited by a fundamentalist terror group. A professor of Scandinavian history finds himself suddenly unable to tell even the smallest lie. And a poet and concentration camp survivor arrives from Norway just after an incredible, rune-covered artifact is discovered in a farm recently acquired by a cult attempting to revive the Old Religion. So begins Lars Walker’s Wolf Time, a fantasy novel in which the social and metaphysi...more
Exciting supernatural thriller with a strong Christian theme, well-defined characters, and a clever, engaging plot. Highly recommended.

Since Lars was kind enough to let me have a copy of his book "Troll Valley" to review last spring {{put in links to both}}, I thought I probably should read the rest of his books. And, some months later, I finally have.

Like much of today's popular fiction, Wolf Time takes place in a dystopian world, and like many of them, the dystopia passes itself off internally as being just two steps short of a utopia. But unlike many of them, it isn't a post-apocalyptic dystopia (it might be a pre-apocalypti...more
This book was a bit of a surprise to me. I found it at the Free Library at the Baen EBooks site, and gave it a shot. At first I wasn't sure what angle the author was taking with the book, as he had both racist, bigotted Christians as well as over-the-top, politically correct secularists. The story centers on Carl Martell, a college professor who knows whenever someone tells a lie (even on television commercials) and is incapable of telling a lie himself. Strangely enough, as important as this wa...more
Too Slow...

Available at Baen Free Library.

Carl Martell, history professor at the non-Christian Christiana College, cannot tell a lie. But he can sense when others do. And when acclaimed Norweigan Poet, Sigfod Oski, comes to town, Martell is certain the greatest deceiver of all is in their midst. Peopled with such endearing characters as the quiet but courageous Lutheran pastor, a born-again disk jockey, and the mythological wolf, Fenris, "Wolf Time" pulls you into Walker's all-too-realistic visi...more

Very interesting story. Reads a bit like Lewis' space trilogy, although much more modern - and a lot weirder. It's a quick read, though, and well worth pursuing if you can locate a copy of the novel.

Fair book. Brush up on your Norse mythology before reading. This is offered for free at Baen Books.
