Rono’s Debt

I wrote this story in 2018, reworked it in 2019 for a contest I never submitted to, and now I’m making it publicly available in the lockdown of the corona outbreak of spring 2020.

Rono is an outlaw, robbing people for a living. But one day he encounters a foe he will not fight: a unicorn that looks like it’s come out of the underworld.

The Draugr

In this short story, an undead man travels a lifeless country with only an undead horse for company. When they find a new valley they decide to explore. But a ghost ship on the fjord stirs age-old memories, and the draugr begins to regret he ever steered down that steep mountain path.
