In quite possibly some of the coolest news to happen to me in the last year, Michael Cichon, professor of Classical, Medieval and Renaissance Studies at the University of Saskatchewan, will be using Thunder Road in his “Beowulf and Tales of Northern Heroes” class.
I am absolutely thrilled by this unexpected turn (let’s hope Mike’s students are also). I’d write more, but I’m still kind of speechless.
Academic respectability…whoda thunk it?
Congrats! That is totally awesome.
Nice! That’s awesome Chadwick! Congrats!! Whoo whoo!
That is incredible…good on you! Well deserved – great for the kids too! 🙂

Holy sh*t! Please tell me you’re being invited to lecture? Oh, that would be the best class ever! Professor Wick will stroll to the lecture amidst a chorus of hoots, whistles and catcalls from your Winnipeg groupies (I know Wendy, Rob, Brent and Shen would join me).
Oh my Norse God!!!
No plans for a guest appearance yet, Laurel. Here’s hoping. And what’s this “sh*t” business? If you’re safe to say shit anywhere on the internet, you’re safe to say shit on my blog. 🙂
Would you like to do a guest appearance? I think it is a marvie idea and as soon as my boss tells me the particulars of the class, I’d be delighted to pass them on so that you can plan an epic road trip to the Toon. More to follow…
I’d love to do a guest appearance! I was hoping to hit Saskatoon for some sort of event regardless. Thanks, Mike!
That is AWESOME Chad!! We are so proud of our “home grown author”!!
Sweet Jebus, that’s so cool! I haven’t checked out your blog in a while, and then I bump into this gem? How dare you keep it under your hat by only sharing it on a public forum! It should have been CC’d to every human, spammer, and fictional entity in your email contact list!
Wow. Just wow. I am blown away, and Laurel is correct, I’d audit that class just for one day if you’re there to lecture. So YOU MAKE IT HAPPEN!!
Thanks, Shen! I’m pretty stoked about this. I’m also hoping to tour out Saskatoon way again for book two, so who knows? Maybe some sort of class visit can be arranged.
And one more thing should you come: we shall have to arrange a tasting of local microbrewery Paddockwood’s 8.7% double IPA, appropriately named Loki.
Outstanding! Looking forward to it!
