Daniel C. Nielsen - The Man from Valhalla (Nebraska)
One of the reasons for, and special treats of, attending local conventions is to introduce new authors to the SF/F community. Highlighting the writers that actually live near their fan base. Daniel Nielsen is such an author.
A self-described writer of dark fantasy, he has two books to his credit: Darksteel Destinies and These Old Bones, as well as an assortment of short stories and poetry. After discovering the joys of world building at an early age and his community library to feed his mythological cravings, Dan took to regaling his classmates with his fantasy worlds while still in school. With literary influences such as C.S. Lewis’ Narnia series and Glen Cook’s Black Company books, this is a new author you need to take the time to get to know.
So spend some time with Mr. Nielsen, attend a reading, corner him in the Con Suite, and participate in a panel he is on. Get a Taste of Twilight and find out what makes our Man from Valhalla tick! See you at OSFest.
