Short stories

At one of my readings, I was asked if there was more to read from my pen. Yes there is!
Apart from various archaeological texts, 
several historical short stories have also been written by me.
So if you want to bridge the waiting time for my next novel, you can use the following titles.

Drei Tagesritte vom Bodensee

Der Zwölfte oder der Sängerkrieger von Trossingen

The short story "The Twelfth or the Singer Warrior from Trossingen" was published in 2011 in the anthology of Gmeiner-Verlag "Three day's rides from Lake Constance".  This is where my two professions, archeology and writing, meet, because the inspiration for this story was a spectacular grave find from the 6th century. AD from Trossingen (Germany): A warrior's grave with excellently preserved objects. In addition to everyday objects, sumptuous clothing and combat equipment, one object stood out in particular: a lyre depicting twelve armed men.
I tried to bring the story of this man and his unusual instrument to life and was awarded third prize in the Quo Vadis short story competition.

Engel, Hexen, Wiedertäufer

Drei Kerben und ein Königspfennig

My short story "Three notches and a king's penny" was published in 2013 by Waxmann Verlag in the anthology "Angels, Witches, Anabaptist". At the heart of this story are the secret courts run by laymen who secretly ensured law and order in the Middle Ages and afterwards in what is now Westphalia where the rulers could not or did not want to.



There is also a very short story by me called “Peace of mind” in the anthology “Castle on fire” by Burgenwelt-Verlag. It is a fragment that later found its way into my novel "Krone des Himmels" in a somewhat modified form. 
Apart from that, for many years I accompanied projects as an editor for the Burgenwelt-Verlag and can assure you that there are some really readable gems to be discovered there with a focus on the Middle Ages and early modern times.
