The Octopus Cycle

by Fletcher Pratt

Imagine if you will, an infestation of flying jungle Octopi. If you can, you have a better imagination than me.

Eric Brighteyes

by H. Rider Haggard

Generally good. A bit long but written in a style similar to thje sagas. Not a happy story but a norse story.

All Things Are Lights

by Robert J. Shea

The Saracen" is a sequel for "all things are light" in a way, as a character born in the later is a main character (grown up) in the "Saracen" so it continues the story, so to speak (but you don't need to read "All things are lights" first.)

I liked "All things are Lights". Not as good as "The Saracen" as I found it a lot more straightforward with clear "good guys" and "bad guys" whereas the Saracen felt more ambiguous (thereby more realistic for me).

I found some of the romance chapters a bit cheezy (How many times did the Lady have to sigh over how "tall and dark" her troubador was?). But it really nicely tied together a lot of interesting aspects of the times: crusades, cathars, trobadors, templars, King Louis, tournaments, the inqusition, etc. I found the crusading chapters with Saint Louis and Baibars the most appealing. Also interesting that the dastardly Charles of Anjou has cameos, considering the part he'll play in the "Saracen" novels.

Saga of Halfred the Sigskald

by Felix Dahn

Pretty much an indecipherable story, but iit doesn't seem indicative of the author's other work.
