Vikings! (Not the Football Kind)
So I’m sitting here, looking out my window at the 3-foot snow and the 5-foot icicles, reverting to ancestral type. Thinking:On a related note, I highly recommend the historical novel Byzantium, by Stephen R. Lawhead. Possibly the best book I've ever purchased without knowing anything at all about it, or its author, before grabbing it off the shelf at B&N. And yes, the main character falls in with probably the most famous batch of vikings who go to sack the aforementioned (spoilers at link) Miklagard.
“F*** this. Let’s go sack Miklagard.”
