Songs of the Northern Seas is an anthology of thirteen tales of the Arctic north, twelve of which were written especially for this volume and appear here for the first time.
These are tales cast up in dangerous latitudes, hooked on the cardinal points of traitorous compasses. They are dark, strange and sometimes uncategorisable, diverse in their tones and themes, though each uniquely shaped by similarly restless Arctic tides, sharp winds, and ancient ice-flows.
