Now, Book Two, The Ice Queen (Blankslate Press), takes up Odd’s adventures as a skald (court poet) in the land of the Rus. Here he is drawn into a dangerous love affair with the passionate and cunning Princess Ingigerd of Novgorod, and is forced to break with his sworn lord, Harald the Ruthless. Along the way, Odd devises a stratagem to defeat the wild Pechenegs, nomadic warriors of the steppe, and goes off on a doomed mission to explore the distant reaches of the Black Sea. The novel concludes with Odd sailing into the harbor of Constantinople, bent on a secret mission, which will almost certainly cost him his life.”

Dan Moses W’80
writes that he is “currently spending 10 months in Fuzhou, China, teaching English at a university. Having never traveled to the East, I thought this might be a good opportunity to experience a different culture and to learn firsthand about some of the history of China. But having never been here before and not being a speaker of the language, I was a bit hesitant to make a 10-month commitment, especially considering that I would only be one of two American teachers here. But the experience has been amazing. The students are friendly beyond belief, eager to learn, respectful, and helpful in every way possible. They are full of love, compassion, and understanding. They routinely pay for my meals, bring me gifts, tell me how appreciative they are that I’m here, and even call me during typhoons to make sure I’m okay. There are six students to each 12×15 ft. dorm room. They live with the same roommates for all four years, and I’ve yet to hear a complaint or even a voice raised from any of them. Their obvious contentment is a good testament to the adage, Less is more, and I hope that we, as Americans, can learn from their humble and appreciative way of living.”
