Great read, despite Amazon's fast-and-loose attitude to publication dates.

Superb book, contains all you could ever want to know about Viking mythology.
My one gripe is Amazon's listed 'publication date'. This book was not published in 2013, as the author died in the 1920s. It was converted to Kindle in 2013. The age of the translation is why the language can sometimes appear stilted and Victorian -- because it is.
Amazon do have this cavalier attitude to the publication dates on Kindle books, which can be a pain in the ar5e if one is looking for an up-to-date translation. I have written to them about this, and got the usual anodyne cobblers of a multinational with no regard for its customers.
Great book, nonetheless. Highly recommended.
