GREEN ARROW: THE LONGBOW HUNTERS SAGA OMNIBUS VOLUME 2

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Hi, Guys –

I thought I’d give you a sneak peek at the cover for GREEN ARROW: THE LONGBOW HUNTERS SAGA OMNIBUS VOLUME 2. Since this volume includes Mark Ryan’s time travel story set in the time of Robin Hood, I designed the theme around the Tree of Life and the Chalice Well cover at Glastonbury. It worked out perfectly, leaving an oval shape where the circles intersect which was the perfect spot for a portrait vignette on the 2 1/2″ spine.

This volume clocks in at 1480 pages and is available for pre-order now on Amazon.com with a release date of November 9, 2021.

Edmonton Expo – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Hi, guys –

With the news that Canada has closed its borders to non-essential visitors, saying they will not open any time soon, I’m reluctantly forced to cancel my appearance at the Edmonton Expo scheduled for October 1-3. 

I apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to seeing all my fans when the world goes back to what we laughingly referred to as normal.

Bestest,
Mike

GREEN ARROW: THE LONGBOW HUNTERS SAGA OMNIBUS VOLUME 2 DUST JACKET DESIGN

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Here’s a sneak peek at my design for the dust jacket for the upcoming GREEN ARROW: THE LONGBOW HUNTERS SAGA OMNIBUS VOLUME 2. Inspired by the ironwork for the oak lid on the Chalice Well at Glastonbury, England and the Celtic Tree Of Life.

I thought it appropriate, since this volume includes GREEN ARROW ANNUAL #4, a time-travel story set in the days of Robin Hood which was written by MARK RYAN, star of the classic British TV series ROBIN OF SHERWOOD and author/creator of THE WILDWOOD TAROT, THE GREENWOOD TAROT and graphic novel series THE PILGRIM. 

This is a huge volume with a 2 1/2″ spine, clocking in at 1,480 pages and weighing right around 8 pounds – not something you’d want to read in the bathroom!

Due to be released November 9, 2021 and available for pre-order on Amazon.com now.

SAND IN HER EYES

Many years ago, I woke in the middle of the night with a story in my head. I grabbed a pen and pad and wrote as fast as I could with no idea where the story was going or how it would end. I finished on the very last line of the pad and sat there, a little stunned. I have no idea where it came from or what messenger carried it to my dreams, but here it is

For Mary, my Wolf Wife.

SAND IN HER EYES
(c) Mike Grell

One night Bear decided he needed a new wife, so he went to the lodge of the Chief of a Cheyenne Wolf Clan and reached in under the flap and grabbed the Chief’s daughter by the ankle and pulled her out. Naturally, she woke up, but Cheyenne women are very beautiful and they’re used to being stolen, and, anyway, she wanted to see what her new husband would look like. But Bear threw sand in her eyes and carried her off through the forest. 

“My new husband is very strong,” she thought. “He will be a good provider.” 

When they got to his lodge, Bear took the sand from her eyes. She couldn’t believe what she saw. 

“I am Bear,” he said. “And you will be my new Bear Wife. You will cook for me and clean for me and keep my lodge, and you will bear me fine sons… then you can go your way and I’ll go mine.” 

“But I am not a Bear Wife,” she said. “I am a Wolf Wife. I will run with you and hunt with you and sing with you and we will come together in the Mating Moon and I will bear you many fine sons and daughters and we will stay together all the days of our lives.” 

“That’s not what I had in mind,” said Bear, and he threw sand in her eyes and took her back to her father’s lodge and shoved her in under the flap. 

When she awoke the next morning, she thought it had all been a dream. But she had sand in her eyes, so she knew it was true. 

AHO!
