Three celebrated authors discuss the Norse influences on their work. Francesca Simon’s comical adventure The Sleeping Army explores what Britain would be like if we still worshipped Norse gods today. Joanne Harris’s fantastical Runelight, the second volume of her Runemarks series, also imagines our society shaped by the Vikings rather than by the Romans. And Kevin Crossley-Holland is the author of The Penguin Book of Norse Myths, and of the Viking saga Bracelet of Bones.
