Jason Born is a popular historical novelist. The Long Fuse is a chain of novels that thrillingly captures the violent period of America’s rise from ragtag colonies to independence. He is the author of Lions & Devils, a series which vividly describes the heroes and villains of the monstrous Islamic assault of Western Europe during the Eighth Century. Other works include The Norseman Chronicles, a multi-volume set detailing the gritty adventures of the faithful Viking, Halldorr, who desired only peace, but found only war in the Old and New Worlds. The Wald Chronicles set of historical novels centers on the rugged conflict and improbable outcome in Germania during the wars between the Roman legionaries and their tribal adversaries over 2,0 ...more

I'll narrow it for you, fear not! The Scandinavians were among the last European pagans to actively practice their ancient ways when more history began to be written down. So we know a little more about it than say specific gods of ancient European tribes. I chose to focus on Norse over say the Danes (nothing against the Danes) because in English literature, because of the Danelaw, most is focused on raiders from Denmark rather than the intrepid Norseman. I also think the whole idea of setting out island hopping to the unknown northwest Atlantic to Iceland, Greenland, and then Vinland is one of the most amazing tales of adventure in human history. Thanks for asking!!(less)
Jason Born Just wrapped up work on my fourth book of The Norseman Chronicles, Norseman Raider. Can't wait to have fans get their hands on it.

Great read. Excellent explanation of intangible based economy and the four factors - sunk costs, scale, spillovers, and synergies. Good for policymakers, managers, investors, and business owners.

Dagger of Mortality did not disappoint. It was filled with fine-tuned action. My kids and I love all of the Metatron books!

“The following spring was a time of calving. Great icebergs calved from the vast glaciers which stretched down to our fjords from distant mountains. The heifers and cows of Kaupangen gave birth to over one hundred calves that spring. Most survived. Gudrod, the master shepherd, had seventy-five new lambkins skipping after their mothers. Ten sets of lamb twins were born in the city that year. Bitches had pups suckling at their breasts. The mountain goats that stood watch over the fjord, indifferently chewing on the wild grasses between the rocks, had kids following them on their steep paths. The residents of the city, too, gave birth. Twenty-one new healthy babies were born within thirty days of the spring equinox; boys and girls with thick blonde, brown, black, or red hair; others with smooth bald heads. Olaf, my third father, my king, had a son, stillborn. Olaf wept. Kenna wept. I wept as the boy was buried inside the casket with his mother in our graveyard by the church.”

Stephanie! - Thank you. Hope you get a chance to read The Norseman. I wrote it for a male audience, but it turns out that ladies like it. One more indication that I'll never quite get the pulse of female folk.


Stephanie Thank you for your friendship! I love, love Historical Fiction! My passion besides my art. :)
