The World of Xeuxondra —
A Universe from the Mind of Celtic Bard
Have you ever wondered where the magic went? In the Middle Ages and before, the world was alive with magic. Where did it go? Perhaps the monotheistic religions and growing nation-states of the world crowded out those of us who could tap into Nature that intimately. Perhaps they harnessed their power to escape to another world. Perhaps they went to Xeuxondra to flee persecution and ensure a future free of fear and oppression for their children. Perhaps Xeuxondra was already populated by other refugees looking for a place to call home in peace.
These are short stories dealing with a series of novels I have written, the first of which was published with the title Reign of Madness. Most are unrelated to the novels or each other and merely use a world I created as a setting.
In the history of Humanity on Xeuxondra, few have grown into the power and might that the House of Samuelson has and maintained that power. Beginning with a single man, Sigurd Samuelson, a warlord of both conquest and diplomacy, the House of Samuelson put down deep roots in the Hildesberg Mountains following the wars of expansion. In the next few centuries they would grow to dominate the Empire of the Zauberin. This is a history of that House. THIS IS NOT A STORY!
