The Ultimate Online Guide to Norse Mythology and Religion

The time has never been better to read some excellent fiction based on the myths and legends of the frozen north. Norse Mythology is a bit more mainstream these days, what with Thor and Loki palling around with all the other good Marvel boys up on the big Disney screen, but there's a lot more to viking lore than what you've seen in the movies.

Some of these books are straight up retellings of the most interesting Norse myths.
