Storytellers is a historical fiction novel with elements of fantasy, different from the ones you’ve read before. Set in Iceland between 1885-1920, the novel features love, passion, an irritating elf, a very determined bride-to-be, a lot of secrets, Conservative Women of Iceland, death… Is there any truth to all of this, though, when nobody is a villain in their own story?
The author is an ex-blacksmith, lover of all things Icelandic, physically located in Amsterdam, mentally living in a log cabin near Akureyri. He has published stories and essays in Polish and American magazines, both online and in print. This is his first novel.
