COMING SOON – Red weddings and red herrings – a blog introduction

Hello and welcome to my blog!

The speculative genre is often inspired by myths and legends from ancient times. Farmhands that turn out to be chosen ones, magical objects that corrupt all who use them and ladies locked away in towers have roots in much, much older tales – and it does not end there.

On this blog – launching this summer!- I will be digging into myths and legends from all over the world to distill both well- and lesser known archetypes and tropes from them – and explore how they have been used in modern fantasy and scifi. Stay tuned!
