Gaiman brings the hammer down
Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales.
In Norse Mythology, Gaiman fashions primeval stories into a novelistic arc that begins with the genesis of the legendary nine worlds; delves into the exploits of the deities, dwarves, and giants; and culminates in Ragnarok. Gaiman stays true to the myths while vividly reincarnating Odin, Thor, and Loki. From Gaiman's deft and witty prose, the gods emerge with their fiercely competitive natures and their tendency to let passion ignite their actions—making these long-ago myths breathe pungent life again.
