Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman, 331 pages

Long inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction, Neil Gaiman now turns his attention to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales. Staying true to the myths, he envisions the major Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of the high; Thor, Odin's might son; and Loki, the trickster and unsurpassable manipulator. As Gaiman's deft and witty prose breathes life into their stories, the gods emerge with fiercely competitive natures and a tendency to let passion ignite their actions.
