From debut author Alexander Dan Vilhjálmsson, SHADOWS OF THE SHORT DAYS, a strikingly original Icelandic debut set in a strangely familiar alternate Reykjavík where wild and industrialised magic meet. Perfect for fans of China Miéville, Lev Grossman and Paulo Bacigalupi, this is a strange and wonderful tale of damaged characters forging a revolution against an oppressive government.

Author Dan Vilhjálmsson, who lives in Reykjavík, writes in both Icelandic and English, translating back and forth as necessary, and is the founder and editor of SFF magazine, Furðusögur (Weird Stories).

Editor Craig Leyenaar at Gollancz acquired the first and second novels in the Hrimland Saga via Jennifer Jackson.
