BLOOD SONGS! New book available now.

Heya guys,
It's been a long time coming, but if you like blood, beards and inappropriate Viking swearing, then hopefully my new book is for you, as it's finally gone live!


It'll be hardcover. ( And with a slipcase version. ) 80 Pages. With any luck, if the gods are kind, I'll be doing a new volume at least every year. I just love the dark ages/medieval times and the world back then is so rich for stories, be it be actual historical things or slice of brutal life and death things every day people went through. Basically, everybody had the habit of dying a lot.

Hope you guys dig it!

Hail Squid!

An update for the modern age. 

No longer do they ride horses. Now, they ride the stock market. Their thrones are the boardrooms. Their domain is...everything. And it's all about to come crashing down, each one, with their own particular talents.

The end is nigh.
