Next February, W.W. Norton will publish Norse Mythology by acclaimed author Neil Gaiman (Sandman, Miracleman, American Gods). Gaiman’s approach is described as “an almost novelistic retelling of famous myths about the gods of Asgard.” Gaiman acknowledges a deep connection to this material which has roots in much of his work. Mythology in general has long been seen as a core element of Gaiman’s writing. Norse figures, in particular, played a small but pivotal role in the events of Sandman, while also appearing in his novel American Gods.
