    Some really interesting tales. I had never heard of most of them. I love that there is a small chapter dedicated to the land of fire and ice.

My favorite was The Tale of Nornagest a strange cross between three faerie’s blessing/cursing a male child (think Sleeping Beauty), the myth of the Wandering Jew and a history on all the great Nor [...]

    Interesting little collection of tales, with a nice amount of humour.
