2019 Audie Finalist for Best Original Work
LOKI RAGNAROK, written and narrated by Mark Binder has been nominated for the 2019 Audie Award for Best Original Work!
Considered the audiobook Oscars, the Audie Award ceremony is presented by the Audio Publishers Association, and will be held on March 4, in New York City.
A well-told tale of the Norse gods… told not from the point of view of the heroic Thor or Odin, but through the eyes of Loki, the trickster… As Binder says in his introduction, this is not for children. But the stories are well-told, both in their writing — Binder adapted them from the Norse poetic and prose sagas called the Edda — and in their performance. Binder’s voice swoops and soars, now angry, now gleeful and now mocking, as Loki tells these stories of the gods run amok.

Originally conceived as a spoken-word performance, LOKI RAGNAROK is a darkly humorous revision of Norse mythology. This is not a child-friendly Marvel Universe story.
The story of Loki echoes the cycles of violence and revenge playing out across our world. Told with a blend of poetry and prose, humor and horror, it offers no solution — but a glimmer, perhaps of understanding and compassion.
Performed by the author in myriad voices, LOKI RAGNAROK blends poetry and prose, humor and horror.
LOKI RAGNAROK was produced and recorded at Galilee Productions. Music composed and performed and audio engineering by George Dussault.
Audiobook also available in Hardcover and eBook.

This tale I tell began long before time, and will not finish until the last coals of creation burn to smoldering dust.
This is a tale of gods and giants,
of ice and fire.
Of the world of men, small though they be,
unmatched in their scrabbling, scratching, fighting, clawing, biting, hacking their way into the brief and glorious light of the sun before their flimsy candles are snuffed,
and darkness is all once more.
This is the tale of Ragnarok, the end of the world,
the end of time.
The great and glorious battle between the giants and the gods –
