I came late to the Viking party. Prior to grad school, what I knew of Norse culture came solely from the pages of Johanna Lindsey’s Haardrad Series. The Vinland Sagas changed me forever. Love of mythology is not new for me. Edith Hamilton’s classic has been a part of my personal library since middle school, along with other collections of Greek, Roman, and Celtic myths. Gaiman’s Norse Mythology has me excited for a couple reasons. First, it’s Neil Gaiman. Second, he’s going to talk about Thor. Not the Chris Hemsworth, chiseled abs, honorable, all-American-surfer Thor, but the hard drinking, foul mouthed, stinky, murderous Thor.
