I have a book out that could be of interest to forum members.
It is called Warrior Lore, and it is a collection of my new translations of medieval Scandinavian ballads into English verse.
More info at: http://www.northerndisplayers.co.uk/
Some of the ballads included in Warrior Lore are:
Tales of the great North-European warrior Diderick of Bern and his group of fighters, with Widrick Waylandsson and Sivar Snare Sven (aka Sigurd).
A ballad of the Norwegian Viking king Harald Hardrada and his sporting contest in archery and skiing against a young fighter.
A folk version of the story of Thor's retrieval of his stolen hammer from the troll Thrym.
The folk-ballad based on the true story of the abduction of Helena, the daughter of the Swedish king from Vreta Convent around 1200.
The illustrated paperback edition is sent from the UK. The cost is GBP 10.00 plus P&P (4.95 to US). (see http://www.northerndisplayers.co.uk/)
The book is also available as an e-book from Kindle (http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00K3W7E36/), and also from the Nook and Kobo stores.
