Who says Thor’s a good guy?
An epic revision of the Norse myth of apocalypse
They broke into his home. They left his wife bound and gagged on the floor, where she choked and died. They kidnapped his children. He had trusted them, helped them. The gods of Asgard destroyed him. He was willing to destroy everything to make them pay.
LOKI RAGNAROK is the Viking Armageddon retold by the trickster. It begins with Loki, chained to a rock, listening for the trumpet that will announce the end of the world. In the shadow of prophecy, his family is torn asunder, leading to betrayal, torture, madness and revenge.
Developed as a spoken-word performance by author Mark Binder, LOKI RAGNAROK was released as an audiobook, with a printed and ebook editions.
“A well-told tale of the Norse gods.… Binder’s voice swoops and soars, now angry, now gleeful and now mocking, as Loki tells these stories of the gods run amok.”— Providence Journal
“For nearly a thousand years, the tale of Ragnarok – the Norse myth of Apocalypse – has painted Loki as a Satan-like evil. With a fast-paced blend of prose and poetry, award-winning author Mark Binder offers an epic revision of the Eddas with modern resonance.”– Duval, Between Myth, Lies, and History
What drives homicidal madness? LOKI RAGNAROK gives a horrific villain a voice with measures of rage, humor and compassion. It 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.
On the eve of battle is the time to tell tales, sing ballads, glorious stories, remembering, reliving, reveling in all that has been. Tomorrow all ends in blood.– Loki
