Jeff Janoda is a teacher in Ontario, Canada, where he lives with his wife and two children. He has published short stories in "Aboriginal Science Fiction" magazine, and several online and printed reviews of movies and books. This is his first novel.
"As focused as Jane Austen, as macabre as Stephen King, Jeff Janoda traces out the hidden springs of power in the micro-society of an Icelandic fjord. He tells a tale of complex feud with all the fullness and detail of a modern novel, but leaves its violent and treacherous heroes as enigmatic as before. A brilliant blend of scholarship and insight." - Tom Shippey, author of The Road to Middle-Earth "Debut novelist Janoda paints a richly textured portrait of Icelandic culture... a gripping recreation of an ancient genre." - Kirkus Reviews "This detail-rich novel is a retelling of a thirteenth-century Icelandic saga... does what good historical fiction is supposed to do: put a face on history that is recognizable to all." - Brad Hooper, Booklist"
