A BRIEF PRESENTATION OF MY NOVELS
– in chronological order –
The Tale of the Antlered God:
These books are set to an imaginative iron age where various nations occupy vast areas of land, mountain and ocean. I calculated that this world is actually some 30-50% larger than our world.
It consists of these books:
Seven Tales of the Western Forest – this one is actually not a part of the 6 novel series, but many readers view it as an intro to the ‘Antlered God-novels’ universe.
Tears of the Dragon – the first volume of the series.
Bran’s Journey – the second volume
He Who Seeks – the third volume
The Coming of Cernunnos – the fourth volume
Where Gods Die – the fifth volume
Tazka Kora – the sixth volume
Seven Tales of the Western Forest:
The other six:
The Anubis Trilogy:
After The Tale of the Antlered God, I wrote first one trilogy, then another. The first one is a post-apocalyptic story from a very dark and hostile northern Europe, usually referred to as The Anubis Trilogy. It starts in Norway and ends in Russia. I did some extensive travelling before I could write these three novels:
After the Anubis Trilogy, I set forth to do something that no Norwegian had even done before: To write an epic fiction series based on Norse mythology. There are three novels so far:
The Jotun’s Return
Before the Nine Worlds End
The Red Bull
Propecies – memories of John Thiersen
My 16th novel is a story about a man who, after surviving a pandemic disease, lives in solitude at a farm by a Norwegian fjord for 30 years. It is a story about loneliness and lost love, of friendship and of finding a place to call home.
Jomsviking is a series of historical novels from the Viking Age.
The first novel tells the story of Torstein Tormodson, who is enslaved as a boy, but who later becomes one of the notorious Jomsvikings. This is the first of a series of novels and is set to the years 993-1000 AD. This novel became an instant and international bestseller, with phonemenal sales numbers and three reviews with a maximum score (6/6) following each other. It was swiftly sold to several countries.
The second novel, Vinland, has been pre-sold to two countries so far. Norwegian launch date: 5th October 2018.
