CONTRIBUTIONS TO FOREWORLD

The Shield-Maiden. Sigrid is a Shield-Maiden who yearns to break free of the restrictions of her father’s home and join the Sworn Men in an actual raiding expedition. When a small diplomatic party that includes members of the Shield-Brethren lands at her family’s holding on Göttland, the party’s second in command, Halldor, sees in Sigrid a vision of beauty and power that might challenge—and even destroy—many men. And when bloody chaos ensues at a nearby Viking fishing village, Sigrid proves she has more than mere talent . . .
Tyr’s Hammer. When Tyr and his companion come upon the perfect spot for a new Shield-Brethren citadel, they discover that it is owned by Voldrun, a northern king with a questionable sense of justice. Although he welcomes the travelers, the king’s true motives eventually become clear. Determined to be compensated for his hospitality, Voldrun subjects the duo to several challenges, culminating in a game more dangerous than either warrior could ever have imagined.
