Vikingverse: Old Norse for Modern Times

The Vikingverse is a parallel timeline where the Norse rule seas and stars with restless fleets and Christianity has been put to the Viking sword.

In a series of interwoven sagas, the storied heroes of mankind emerge in new and brutal guises drawn from the pages of mythology, fighting for a future stretched to breaking point by the ever-present peril of Ragnarok.

Be Warned: the meek shan’t inherit this Earth!

about the book


Have you ever wanted to wield the silver tongue of Loki – or to hammer home your point like a Thundergod?

Old Norse is the language of legends and the stuff of sagas, the inspiration for Tolkien and Marvel, for award-winning manga and epic videogames. It is the language of cleverly crafted kennings, blood-curdling curses and pithy retorts to Ragnarök.

Old Norse for Modern Times gives you the perfect phrase for every contemporary situation –

  • from memorable movie quotes (“We’re going to need a bigger boat.” Þurfa munu vér skip stærra)
  • to battle-cries to yell on Discord (“Do I look to be in a gaming mood?” Sýnisk þér ek vera í skapi til leika?),
  • from mead hall musings (“This drink, I like it! ANOTHER!” Líkar mér drykkr þessi! ANNAN!)
  • to tried-and-tested pickup lines (“Nice tattoo!“  Fagrt er húðflúrið“).

It is the perfect guide for Vikings fans, whether they are re-enactors, role-players, or simply in love with Ragnar.

VALHALLA AWAITS…but in the meantime, seize the helmet by the horns (not a thing) and unleash your inner viking.
