Canadian authors Ian Sharpe and Jordan Stratford launch their latest Norse novels: Loki’s Wager and Winter by Winter. Come and get your signed copy!

Sharpe’s Vikingverse series depicts a parallel timeline where the Norse rule seas and stars with restless fleets and Christianity has been put to the Viking sword. In a series of interwoven sagas, the storied heroes of mankind emerge in new and brutal guises drawn from the pages of mythology, fighting for a future stretched to breaking point by the ever-present peril of Ragnarok.

Stratford is best known for his Middle-Grade Wollstonecraft Detective Agency series from Knopf / Random Penguin but is now making his first foray into bloody historical fiction with a tale for the ages.

All day, except 1-3pm.
