Norse Mythology

Norse Mythology

Neil Gaiman


A re-telling of some of the core Norse legends by a master of science fiction. Gaiman's drawn heavily on Norse mythology in his "Sandman" series, especially in Season of Mists. But he does a fantastic job of rendering the stories in prose too, with a carefully chosen selection and a voice that's perfectly pitched: not trying to be modern, but not being self-consciously archaic or imitative either. In many ways the only shame is that it's too little taken from such a large body of possible tales.

5/5. Finished 28 March 2018.
