Descrizione prodotto

L'autore

The Northlore Trilogy is the product of the restless mind and imagination of MJ Kobernus. He got together with a whole bunch of people and made something to be proud of. So a big thanks to all the contributors, and a bigger thank you to the readers! MJ lives and works in Norway. He is a father of three beautiful girls, the husband of a beautiful woman and lead guitar for the world`s biggest rock band. Okay...so maybe not everything in the bio is true. But he is from Norway, and he really does play guitar.

4.0 su 5 stelle Folk Lesson Fun 29 giugno 2015
Di ReadingOtherPeople - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
As my followers of Reading Other People know, I am constantly looking for new and innovative pieces to analyze and learn from. When I was contacted by Norway’s Nordland Publishing to review their anthology entitled The Northlore Series Volume 1: Folklore, I graciously accepted. My knowledge of Scandinavian folklore is limited at best, providing me with ammunition to expand my knowledge of the world.

Comprised of 33 short stories and poems, The Northlore Series is heavily ensconced in a world of magic and delight. Alongside such otherworldly enchantments exist ageless themes and motifs ranging from betrayal to courage, all presented with a certain whimsical literary style. When there is a consolidated book with various contributors, as this book clearly is, there is sometimes an inconsistency of thematic representations and ultimate moralistic tellings. While no book is free of such inconsistencies, The Northlore Series does a great job in maintaining a gradual building of historical expositions in the context of eccentricity and amusement.

Needless to say, I obtained that semi-historical lesson I was anticipating upon commencing the book. While unique to its region in terms of custom, culture and folklore, Norway’s close proximity to other European natures rich in their own culture allows the story to be infused with a certain pan-European-like semblance of style and references. As with reading anything of the fantasy genre, the reader has to suspend his or her disbelief, something I had to consciously remind myself of whilst reading Northlore, especially when presented with some interesting human/animal cross species (Maras, she-werewolves were indeed my favorite.) Nothing against J.R.R. Tolkien’s master works, but I found this anthology a bit more honest and humble in its tone and ambitions.

Some simple but effective illustrations accompany some of the literary vignettes in Northlore, adding to the book’s general feeling of a unique blend of light and historical reading. The experience brought to me a welcome respite from the sometimes crazy world, and even though there are monsters in my own world that I could do without, I thoroughly enjoyed the ones that haunt pages of The Northlore Series: Volume 1 - Folklore.

5.0 su 5 stelle But that is only where the fun begins! The stories and poems are extremely different 21 maggio 2015
Di AngryGnome - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
I have read this book, from cover to cover. I was lucky enough to have an advanced reader copy. It is absolutely gorgeous. From the cover design, to the layout, the illustrations, etc. Clearly they have made a lot of effort on how the book actually looks. But that is only where the fun begins!

The stories and poems are extremely different. Some are set in the Viking age, others in the late middle ages while still others are clearly modern. They are a nice balance of dramatic, funny, scary and nerve racking. I would definitely call this an eclectic collection.

Nordland Publishing is a Norwegian company. They publish Scandinavian centric content, and boy, this meets the bill.

As the blurb on the back says, "Poetry and prose inspired by Scandinavian Folklore. In turns funny, horrifying, sexy and sad, what you seek is within. Warning! Do NOT feed the animals."

I have to say, that sums it up!

If you like trolls, you'll like this. Ditto historical fantasy, epic fantasy, witches, elves and things that go bump in the night.

5.0 su 5 stelle The Taste of Norway 21 maggio 2015
Di Doc - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
This collections of tales gets the right balance, like a fine blend of coffee. Some good, some great, but all of them enjoyable, a nice curation overall. Sitting in the warm sun, they presented a nice way to chill me down, like an iced tea. An nice summer read for everyone interested in Scandivavian Folklore and dark, mystical folk stories in general. I also liked the accompanying story illustrations by the Artist Evelinn Enoksen.

Overall a quality product, and a great way to experience the spirit of Norway and scandinavia in general.
Looking forward to the next part of the series (it's a series, right? Volume One?)

5.0 su 5 stelle A Box of Dazzling Surprises. 20 novembre 2015
Di Christopher Hegan - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I enjoyed this far more than I expected to. I bought it because a friend wrote one of the stories and I thought I'd do the decent thing; myth and folklore aren't really my bag. What an eye-opener! A hilarious alternative explanation of the origins of Stonehenge. A three-headed troll arguing with itself. A chilling, desperate account of a boat-load of Vikings who accidentally release the zombie virus among their number. There truly isn't a single dud tale in this highly entertaining and imaginative collection. Indeed, almost all of these short stories and prose poems are ingenious, beautifully structured, elegantly penned and often funny; seriously good writing, in fact. I couldn't put it down, and even went straight back and read half a dozen instant favourites a second time. Even more unexpected, for me, was how much I enjoyed the ingenuity and accessibility of some of the dozen-odd short prose poems, although a couple did ring all-too-familiar bells.
Clever plots, and they all are that, aren't enough though. Character is king – too much fantasy writing puts all the colour and subtlety into the humans, leaving the giants, fairies, trolls or whatever as two-dimensional cut-outs, but as I read story after story I became amazed at the depth of characterisation these very smart writers bring to their mythical creations. I came to understand that, at its best, writing about elves, and draugr, hulde, selky and others from the panoply of northern mythological beings is a nifty way of extending the possibilities of humanity, at least in the imagination. The mythical characters are, at their best, insightful reflections of ourselves, gleefully distorted as if in a fairground hall of mirrors. That's the trick of it, to bring them alive and make us feel for them, and these guys are masters at the game. The editor, M J Kobernus, who also wrote one of the best stories about a spelunking tourist who runs into trolls deep in a cave system with genuinely surprising results, has pulled together a stellar gathering of writers from around the world, many of them multiple award winners, and it shows in the quality. Very, very clever stuff. Bring on Vol. II.

5.0 su 5 stelle When you think about traditional stories, you probably imagine ... 1 giugno 2015
Di Alvaro Meroni - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle
When you think about traditional stories, you probably imagine an ancient man sitting in front of a fire, as if Folklore were something from the past only. In this first volume, its storytellers turn those chronicles into a fresh and captivating anthology. The 'hidden people' are still alive... and among us.
