Viking Fiction Recommendations

Of course readers of the Hall know about Lars Walker's works, some of which we have read together. Once you have read all his books, and The Long Ships, and those Fafhrd stories that turn on sailing, you may still be wanting more. Here is another list, which embraces Viking-themed fantasy.

Recommendations from readers are encouraged.

The Boy With the Bronze Axe by Kathleen Fidler does not qualify on two counts: it is Stone Age rather than Viking, and Orkney rather than Denmark/Norway. It is also children's rather than adult fiction.

Still, I think many fans of Viking literature would find it valuable and enjoyable.

David Drake's Northworld trilogy is pretty good. Grim and violent, as is appropriate for both the age and the author.

If I'm reading the synopsis right, "Eaters of the Dead" sounds very much like the Antonio Banderas movie " The Thirteenth Warrior".
Good movie.
Might give the book a try even though I am not a Crichton fan.
