Campaign of the Gods is the second book in a series of 3 novellas which will be called The Hopfield Tales. They are intentionally quite short and are designed to be relatively accessible to children, some of whom may not have the concentration or patience to read full-sized novels. The first one is called The Spirit Archer.

Each story has (or will have) a historical or mythological element to it and is set in the fictional Yorkshire town of Hopfield. All of the books have people, locations or objects which are (or were) very real. For example, Robin Hood's grave (which is near the Yorkshire town of Mirfield), Ivar Ragnarsson - who was a Viking leader, the Hopfield Stone in Campaign of the Gods - which is actually called the Mirfield Stone, and the monastery 'The Community of the Resurrection' which is likely to be a location in the 3rd novella.

Eventually, my hope is that The Hopfield Tales will be published as a single volume, and it is in this context that I hope all 3 stories will be considered. However that is likely to be in at least a year or so. In the meantime I hope you enjoy the novellas. They are also available in paperback thanks to the hard work of GMTA Publishing.
