In conversation with the authors Judith C. Vogt and Christian Vogt
Historical fantasy are often what-if stories that take place in the past and pick up on interesting events or settings there. In addition to changing the course of history, they infuse a touch of fantasy into the real world, turning a (to some) dull schoolbook theme into an exciting new world.
Judith and Christian Vogt have been writing fantasy novels and role-playing games together for many years. In an interview with their editor Kathrin Dodenhoeft, they talk about how an idea becomes a book and what particularly appeals to them about the historical fantasy genre.
Their most recent novel, “Schildmaid,” was published by Piper Verlag and is set in medieval Scandinavia, where Norse myths are real.
