I want to take just a moment and wish all of you who visit our site and read our blog postings, and the members and officers of New Ulster Steel Fighting a very blessed and merry Christmas. It has been and continues to be a great blessing to be able to teach, train with, and learn along with such wonderful people as the membership of New Ulster Steel Fighting. You are a group of martial artists that I am very proud to be associated with. I dare say that you are an elite group of martial artists who train in the rich art of Medieval European combat on an individual level as well as on a team level. Thank you all for your dedication, loyalty, friendship, and for your prayers. I hope that I am as great a blessing to you all as you are to me.
From myself and my family, we pray that you have a safe and wonderfully blessed Christmas!

A novel by Jefferson P. Webb
A Viking nobleman seeks to find a renewed sense of purpose and honor after a disastrous raiding campaign. spending time with an old hermit that will not reveal his name,but nevertheless is clearly a former Viking warrior of great renown, Angus Ovarssen takes up the challenge of service as a Varangian Guard officer in the Christian Byzantine Empire. Once again he engages in brutal warfare and sees the horrors of Dark Age warfare.
Ants in the Sun is filled with excitement, bold and daring adventure, passionate love and romance, personal growth, and the horrors of Dark Age combat. This is a must read for readers desiring a book not only filled with action, but a book that is deeply riveting and brings to life the human nature and character of the people of the time period in which it is set.
“Do you see those things scurrying along the ground?We are nothing more than those. Like ants in the sun we go about the land. We maintain our own kind and fight others. We gather food and create offspring. There is nothing before this life and nothing after it. We are ants in the sun…”
