I’m Sam Paxton, the not-so-anonymous bard. The title of my blog comes from the nameless bards and minstrels who grace the pages of epics and fantasy novels. They’re nameless, but they provide some of the best scenes in their texts. That’s what I’m hoping to do.

I’m a first-time fantasy writer, long-time fantasy reader. Any good writer is a product of his or her culture and is actively involved in lively discussion with other authors. That’s what I’m here for — to share my ideas and hear yours.

I hold an MA in literature and relish in teaching the “classics” — The Odyssey, Beowulf, Gilgamesh, The Aeneid — in my world literature classroom. I’ve always pondered the claim that “those who can, do; those who can’t, teach.” I’ve decided to take up my pen and see if this Chiron can, in fact, become an Achilles as well.
