Neil Gaiman has officially announced his next book, and its not what you would expect as its Non-Fiction yet still sounds brilliant! Gaiman’s next book will be entitled ‘Norse Mythology.’
This book aims to retell the key mythology in a way that can be accessed by any and all readers- this sounds exciting to me.
The author noted that Norse roots have run deep through many of his works, leaving behind breadcrumbs in everything from American Gods to Sandman. With his latest effort, he finally decided to tackle them all head-on.
Here’s an excerpt from what Gaiman had to say about the project:
“To get the opportunity to retell the myths and poems we have inherited from the Norse was almost too good to be true. I hope the scholarship is good, but much more than that, I hope that I have retold stories that read like the real thing: sometimes profound, sometimes funny, sometimes heroic, sometimes dark, and always inevitable.”
