Welcome to THE EYE OF ODEN, the web-home of historical fiction and fantasy novelist Scott Oden! Here, you’ll find all manner of things: a page where you can sign up for his Newsletter; a link to Oden’s blog, Skalded Tongues, which focuses on the vicissitudes of the writing life, and on the lore and background for his upcoming novel, A Gathering of Ravens; a page devoted to Oden’s previous books, and a Gallery featuring fan-and-pro art from A Gathering of Ravens (and some of Oden’s favorite Orc pictures). So come in, throw off your cloak, and have a seat by the fire!
Who is Scott Oden?
Good question. Oden is the author of four novels, two historical fiction (Men of Bronze and Memnon) and two fantasy with a strong historical bent (The Lion of Cairo and A Gathering of Ravens), a couple of short stories, and a few non-fiction articles and introductions (notably, the introduction to Del Rey’s Robert E. Howard collection, Sword Woman and Other Historical Adventures). Oden is a sad victim of Golden-Age Thinking and would rather live as an expatriate writer in 1920’s Paris . . .
