Mac Criomthann Tales By G. R. Grove
eBook (ePub): $8.99
Many are the tales which were once told of the Druid called Mac Criomthann and the adventures which befell him in the years he wandered Ireland – for it was not a man of Ériu that he... More > was, but a Briton, and how he came by his name and his nature in that great island I have told elsewhere. Most of his stories are lost now, or attributed to other heroes and magicians, but these few I have salvaged. I learned them once from an ancient Storyteller, long ago in a distant land. Now I share them with you here…< Less
Storyteller By G. R. Grove
eBook (ePub): $8.99
“Blood and fire, gold and steel and poetry, a river’s voice in the silence of the night, and the shining strings of a harp – all these and more I have known in my time... Now they... More > are all gone, the men and women I knew when I was young, gone like words on the wind, and I am left here in the twilight to tell you their tale. Sit, then, and listen if you will to the words of Gwernin Kyuarwyd, called Storyteller…” So begins the tale of the young Gwernin’s adventures as a wandering storyteller and would-be bard in the chaos and contradictions of 6th century Britain. Along the way he encounters allies and enemies both human and supernatural, finds love and friendship, and learns the lore - and the true meaning - of a Bard’s profession.< Less
Flight of the Hawk By G. R. Grove
eBook (ePub): $8.99
Britain in the summer of 551 AD: The North is a tinderbox about to burst into flame, the Saxons are stirring again in the East, and Cynan Garwyn, Prince of Powys, is doing his best to foment war in... More > the South. In the midst of this simmering chaos, two young bards - Gwernin Storyteller and his friend Neirin mab Dwywei, the Poet-Prince that some call "Taliesin's Hawk" - are sent to the North by their master to investigate the rumors and do what they can to prevent a war. At least, that was their mission - but the two young men find plenty of other adventures along the way. Girls and beer, bloodshed and magic - will they survive the summer and make it home alive? This is the second book in the Storyteller series.< Less
The Ash Spear By G. R. Grove
eBook (ePub): $8.99
“Elidyr Mwynfawr, King of Aeron, was a weak, greedy fool, and like many another such fool, he died of his folly. But because he was a King, in his dying he cost many better men their lives as... More > well, and this was the way of it: for I, Gwernin Kyuarwyd, was there, and saw much of it myself, and the tale that I tell you is true…” In 6th century Wales, the ash spear – pren onn – was a symbol of warfare and of manhood, but it also stood for awen, the poetic inspiration of the bards. As war comes to North Wales, bardic apprentice Gwernin must master all three of its meanings in order to keep himself and his friends alive. From otherworldly dangers to rich rewards in the fire-lit halls of kings, from bloody battle and grueling labor to tender romance, The Ash Spear follows him in the thrilling conclusion of this first trilogy in the Storyteller series.< Less
The Druid's Son By G. R. Grove

More > Archdruid of Ynys Mon engenders a son. The boy's mission: to defeat the Roman invaders and preserve his father's heritage. But can he possibly survive long enough to achieve his goal?< Less
Druid Songs: Poetry of Prayer and Praise for the Druid Kind By G. R. Grove
eBook (ePub): $4.99
The poems in this little book were primarily intended for use in Neopagan Druidical rituals, but there's no reason others shouldn't enjoy them, and perhaps find them pertinent to their own... More > spirituality. I wrote most of them for submission to the ADF Bardic Guild Study Program in April through September of this year. A preliminary limited edition of five copies was prepared for ADF’s 2013 Eight Winds Festival, held in July 2013 at Trout Lake Abbey in Washington state. This second edition contains a few additional poems written after that date.< Less
Storyteller Songs: Poetry from the Young Gwernin Trilogy By G. R. Grove
eBook (ePub): $4.99
This is a collection of prose and poetry taken from the first three books - the Young Gwernin trilogy - of the Storyteller series, which follows the adventures of a group of bards and storytellers in... More > the years after King Arthur's death. If you have not yet read the novels, you might want to go and start there, as some of these poems could be considered to be plot spoilers. On the other hand, you might just want to plunge in now and see how you like Gwernin's world...< Less
Songs of Wales: A Poetry Collection By G. R. Grove
eBook (ePub): $8.99
Most of these poems have been published before in one or another of my previous collections, although there are a few new ones at the end. However, although a good portion of my work over the last... More > twenty years has been connected with Wales and the Welsh, these poems are intermingled with an assortment of other material in my two trade paperback collections (King Arthur’s Raid on Hell and Other Poems and Pryderi’s Pigs and Other Poems), with brief extracts from the Storyteller books in Storyteller Songs, and with other religious poetry in Druid Songs. I therefore decided to draw together most of my Welsh material in one small-format volume for the convenience of the reader uninterested in, e.g., material connected with the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) or with other Indo-European traditions. I have also included a few pieces not previously published. - G. R. Grove< Less
