    This is a real problem for a lot of folks out there who are trying to find books on what heathenry is all about. Nearly all of the modern authors I have read seem to either be off on their own...

    Hrolf Kraki's saga would have to be mine. The ideal of striving to be something greater than yourself, illustrated in the war-band and the king himself, is one of my favorite central themes.
