On the threshold of winter, it is not untoward to turn one’s thoughts to hearty beards. So it is here at McFarland, and ours have specifically turned to Vikings and representations of medieval Nordic-ness in myth, literature and popular culture. We’ve collected all our related McFarland titles into this catalog, and you’ll find a full range of books covering topics such as the intellectual inspirations for Tolkien’s legendarium, the Vikings television series that successfully summoned their historical world, and insights into the people of the great Icelandic medieval sagas. If you have an interest in Norse mythology in heavy metal music, McFarland has a book for that, too! Through December 31, get 30% off these books with coupon code VIKINGS30.
