The Impudent Edda by Rowdy Geirsson

Book Blurb

After 800 years, the final installment of The Edda Trilogy has at long last arrived! Picking up where its medieval forebears, The Poetic Edda and The Prose Edda, left off, The Impudent Edda not only introduces readers to a fresh, new perspective on both familiar and previously unknown narratives of Norse mythology, but also brings the worldʼs foremost epic fantasy trilogy to its inevitable and fateful conclusion: in a dank alleyway behind a dive bar in Boston. 

Masterfully translated into English for the first time ever by esteemed Impudent Eddic scholar, Rowdy Geirsson, this volume offers readers a deeply poetic yet highly accessible version of fun and classic tales ranging from Odinʼs unprovoked murder of an ancient witch to Freyjaʼs voluntary experiment as a prostitute among lecherous dwarves to Thorʼs drunken and petty act of larceny on the eve of Ragnarök, the final world-shattering battle of the gods.
