OOoo that sounds very interesting. Then again, not entirely surprising that the All Father would present different aspects of himself depending on the narrative he found himself in.

It has been great fun, Odin as a shaman/warrior/ruler is such an interesting character, best shown in my opinion by his quest for Suttung's mead (which I believe can be found in the Gylfaginning)

speaking of which, any expectations of neil's new norse mythology book coming out soon?

I'm glad you like it! I could post it if any of you were interested enough to read 5000 words? (oooooh does that count as it being peer reviewed?) Anyway, I haven't read much about it beyond the announcement, so I just expect a sort of blur of academic discussion and Gaiman's fairly inimitable story telling. Looking forward to it either way!

I need to read the sagas and such with his stories. Maybe after my AG re-read.

You sound like a solid fan. sorry I can't join in the conversation, I haven't read these yet, but have another Pop! balloon or two.
