Loki: On Tricksters and Gods

by Clarence Haynes

Otherland’s second Mythic Fiction Book Club discussion is this Friday, July 26th, 19.30 at the Otherland Bookshop. We’ll be focusing on the 2014 novelThe Gospel of Loki by well-known British author Joanne M. Harris. Gospel of Loki is part of the author’s "Rune" series of releases, with a titular character known by many as the trickster god of Norse mythology. Harris chronicles various tales spun from traditional myth all via Loki’s perspective, who wholly owns his status as a shapeshifting deity of mischief and deceit, albeit feeling misunderstood at times by his godly cohorts. 

For more background details about Harris’ take on Loki, folks can visit her website: http://www.joanne-harris.co.uk/books/the-gospel-of-loki/

OBC this Friday!

Have you been able to make use of the unusually long gap between our last meeting and the next to finish the, well... unusually long and equally amazing and perplexing "Gardens of the Moon"? The book is actually Canadian author Erik Stevenson's debut and has a massively massive fanbase all around the world. As to me, I have finished it last week and I'm still processing... and processing some more my mixed feelings about which we'll surely be talking about when we meet this Friday July 12th, at 7.30 pm as usual at the Otherland Bookshop.
