All five finished stories are now edited and released at Feedbooks. Here are the links and the short descriptions again:
Does the Trickster of Asgard have a heart? And if he does, can it be broken? And if it can be broken, what will happen to those who break it? A chance meeting on a rescue mission turns Loki’s world ‒ for the good and the bad. (Warning: it’s a dark story in parts.)
People get wiser as they get older, they say. The Trickster of Asgard, however, never does things the way other people do them. And if one god can wreak havoc on earth, two can do it even better. For Loki it’s merely a question of keeping his brother’s glorious plans in check. For a group of gods long gone it’s a question of finally getting revenge.
Once upon a time, Asgard had field agents. These days it has the Trickster of Asgard, the right arm of the All-Father. However, even a god has limits. Loki needs help and he knows who can help. It’s a good thing, though, his personal dictionary doesn’t include the word ‘impossible,’ because that is how easy it will be to completely assemble his team.
The Trickster of Asgard has many jobs: right arm of the All-Father, agent, assassin, spy, scholar, sorcerer, hacker, council member… Now Loki can add two more at the same time: investigator and diplomat. Can he handle looking for a threat to all realms and negotiating a peace treaty at the same time?
Can the Trickster of Asgard be caught on canvas? A throne anniversary, two stolen paintings, and a ring of smugglers are just three things Loki has to deal with in between standing still for his portrait. A spy network may become a new enemy or an ally. An enemy might turn into a friend. A glorious plan might just work out. And marriage is looming on the horizon…
I’m now working on the sixth story and I have ideas for another one, not a Loki File, but including a Loki as well.

Ok, by now the files have developed a little further. The first story is out for all to read at Feedbooks: Heart of Ice. I’m working on #6, currently named Servant of Life, the fifth is done, so a little addition to the list:
The Loki Files #5: Protectors of Earth
Can the Trickster of Asgard be caught on canvas? A throne anniversary, two paintings, and a ring of smugglers are just three things Loki has to deal with in between standing still for his portrait. A spy network may become a new enemy or an ally. An enemy might turn into a friend. A glorious plan might just work out. And marriage is looming on the horizon…
The Loki Files #6: Servant of Life
(working title, but I think it will stick)
The Trickster of Asgard has been tamed, at least partially. But what will it take for him to sit on the throne of Asgard? Crisis and chaos, that’s what. Disease is sweeping through the realm, but where did it come from and how can it be fought? Ruling was never Loki’s preferred occupation, but when he’s the only one in the family not sick, he has to keep the throne occupied. And he has to rely on his agents to find out what’s going on.
That’s stories #5 and #6 for you. I will publish them at Feedbooks as soon as they are done and edited … which goes for the rest, too.
