Yeah, I posting a book review. Bite me.

Heather O’Donoghue is a reader in Ancient Icelandic literature in Oxford. From Asgard to Valhalla is an account of how the Nordic myths came to us, and of their reception – from early Christian interpretations to virtual games, graphic novels and Swedish and Norwegian Viking heavy metal music.

That should be interesting to some of you. Now you go learn something and become edumacated. :dorky:

That's a weird title, considering that Valhalla is in Asgard.

Probably a A to Z reference using terms a lot people already know.

Instead of buying that book, people could get a copy of Manowar's latest album instead. :tongue:
