The Vikings are coming!

I am very happy to see, that as well as this new series ‘Vikings’, following the adventures of Ragnar Lodbrok, which

‘… tells the sagas of Ragnar’s band of Viking brothers and his family, as he rises to become King of the Viking tribes. As well as being a fearless warrior, Ragnar embodies the Norse traditions of devotion to the gods, legend has it that he was a direct descendant of Odin, the god of war and warriors.’ Written by History Channel

There is also a new movie on the way, a remake of 1964’s The Long Ships. It is based on the book ‘Red Orm’ by Frans G Bengtsson, about Viking conquests and lootings in Europe. It is due to be filmed this year or next.

  1. Here’s my fond hope Lily, that these new films will cause a tsunami of interest that will create an equally great interest in your three novels. Wouldn’t that be something!
