Nils Nisse Visser


Scribbler on an insane quest to quest to retell old Sussex folklore (and some Dutch sealore) within the genres of historical fantasy or contemporary fantasy, including Steampunk. Some purely historical stuff as well. See the menu at the top right hand corner for navigation. Entering his fifties, Visser hopes to become a pirate when he grows up.

Delighted to be in this anthology with my story "The Cursed Stag"

THEM THAT ASKS NO QUESTIONS

This novelette is the sequel to Rottingdean Rhyme, short but sweet, as we learn how Alice copes living in Brighton's slums. Very little steampunk in this one, a great deal of Sussex history, including Martha Gunn.

 

DRAKA RAID 

A Wyrde Woods Novelette. 


Sussex, 878 AD. Lewinna's father is chieftain of Wyrdwuda. When he is called away by King Alfred, together with all the fighting men, the domain is threatened by a Danish raid. To defend her people, Lewinna will have to make do with a handful of greybeards, boys, and the women of Wyrdwuda. Will they be able to defeat the Danes?


Based on an old Sussex legend. 

WILL'S WAR IN BRIGHTON 

In the summer of 1940, Will Maskall and his friends discover what it's like to live in a town  besieged by enemy aircraft. Though fictional, the story is based on Brightonian eyewitness accounts and family anecdotes. This local bestseller has been enjoyed by young and old.


In the sequel, Will experiences the displacement of an evacuee after he is sent to stay with relatives in the Sussex countryside. Once again eyewitness stories have been used as a source of inspiration.


Although Exile from Brighton completes this series, Will Maskall and some of the other characters surface again in my Wyrde Woods books.
