TIMES OUT OF JOINT
All Will Sverdrup wanted was to play Hamlet in an amateur production. He never counted on getting sucked back in time, into the body of the original, historical Hamlet in 6th Century Denmark.
His fellow actors (along with the real Hamlet) never expected to be transported to an alternate universe where Shakespeare's play was real—with them perfectly placed to live (and die) their parts.
But that's what happened. Now they have to decide—do they play their roles out, all the way to the bloodbath at the end, or do they try to break the play and save their lives
The play may be stronger than they are. And if it's not, there's always the giant, tentacled monster that hitched a ride with them, a complication Shakespeare never foresaw....
Praise for Year of the Warrior by Lars Walker:
". . . many fierce battles, both with men and with sendings from the other gods ... a Norse saga . . . introspective and bloody." —VOYA
". . . rowdy action and a realistic look at the human and spiritual costs of religious and cultural conversion."
