    Long read Book (Weekend)
    Another story from Scott Fitzgerald which, in his telltale disillusioned way shows us a life and relation not fully lived and enjoyed. But inside his bleak view of people, love, and life, you can also touch upon a grain of wisdom in that every person alive needs to choose their own way through life. To live a life that they love, to follow their heart, embrace their needs and pleasures and to do it, their very own way. Life doesn't come in repeat, so enjoy it fully and go where you want to go. And understand, and accept with a smile that the same free will and need for fulfillment, applies to everybody else too. And that is the heart of this incarnation of "Russet Witch"

    'Russet Witch' in this alternate take, adapted by Mike Koontz follows the life and choices of Merlin and his wife, their kids and his real love in life, the beautifully alive and open minded 'russet witch'.

  • Book: 'The Kalevala', Rune 1 to 4. A fictional Norse Adventure, shrouded in a veil of fog and ancient northern pagan times.






    Suitable for all ages, Teens and up

    Long read Book (Days)
    The origin of the first authors and thus the very first words and ways of the Finnish epic Kalevala remain unknown in todays world. Shrouded in a veil of fog and ancient northern pagan times, words shaping this story that herald from when we northerners walked the Earth as Vikings, Norse men and Scandinavians long before any Nordic man and woman where ever known to the world as Vikings or in any way laid claim to any Christian values in any way shape and form.

    What you are about to set out on is a journey through an epic Finnish tale woven in parts of Beowulf, part Iliad, ballads and poems, but all Nordic heritage, thousands of years in the making through Nordic myths, lives and stories, real blood and history entwined with fiction of the most fantastical kind.

    The origins are unknown since this tale like so many other aspects of past Nordic days and history was passed down oraly instead of in written form.
    But beyond the countless of Nordic story tellers that´s all been a part of shaping, living and telling this story, there´s also a long range of more modern day authors and scholars from other nations that could at least in part be credited for the work and inspiration behind this particular English adaptation. Keep in mind however, that Christian scholars used to be very fond of changing the Norse pagans history and stories, facts and lore, and religion to make it feel and sound either like a christian tale or a historical fact when it was in reality heavilly distorted.

    So if you read something in the Kalevala that feels in any way like a reference to the Christian heaven and myths of that time, that is a sad historical distortion
    Scandinavian society and its various tribes during the time of Kalevala and Beowulf had no Christian prejudice and shortcomings in its daily views on gods, sex, rights and gender equality.
