In the head-long blind rush into modernity, any regard for any aspect of our heritage and cultural identity is discouraged by the self-appointed pedagogues of 'political correctness', and although lip-service is paid to spirituality, any view of reality other than a materialist one, is mocked and profaned as are any values that rise above banal consumerism. This is why these retellings of Anglo-Saxon and Norse legends are so timely, for we hear the voice of our forebears speaking on its own terms. Within their world the timeless otherness of the great unseen is brought to life, a world imbued with meaning and wonder. These retellings are in part prose, in a style of the spoken voice, for they were first composed to be told from memory to live audiences. The rest is narrative poetry, echoing the original use of verse-craft and "painting with the gift of speech". P.D. Brown, a latter day 'saga-man', has been telling traditional stories for over twenty-five years. The stories within this book are the maturation of his work of the last few years bringing together his favourite types of tale, the supernatural and the Germanic mythic world. Each tale has accompanying explanatory notes. Further information on story-telling services can be seen at www.scop.co.uk.
