So between the Viking sword link, this link, and the Syndergaard link, I suppose the Viking trifecta is complete!

She has a great interviee with Craig Ferguson.  Here she is speaking Ukrainian:

Katheryn Winnick

She tells a story about almost accidentally murdering a couple of her friends earlier in the interview.

Mmmm, Lagertha.

And to think, half the problems in that show could have been prevented if Ragnar didn't have a wandering dick, and if he'd stayed home to plow that field on the regular.

/Lagertha was hotter than Aslaug

I disagree because...you see...what I wanted to say was, well, what you have to understand is...

Any man that would give up lagertha is in dire need of therapy.

Extra Virgin Geek Olive Oil: Shield Maidens... How do they work?


Her burial chamber strongly suggests that SHE had shield maidens. . .what is the male equivalent?

Ilian of Garathorm is not amused.

According to some fellows in the Politics tab, the male equivalent is a "Beta Cuck".

/not sure what that is either...

I know what it means when she looks at me that way, and all I can think is, you know, there are worse ways to die.

Well, if there were a group of people where the women were tall and strong enough to be warriors, it'd probably be the Norse.

/conversely, maybe some of the Amazon tribes where the men are so short and small that sexual dimorphism is scarcely a factor

What, no Frøya? She dove into that pillaging 100%. Even took part in quite a lot of the raping!

So is the series worth a read as an adult? I never heard about it until now.

I've enjoyed all the Eternal Champion books.   The Runestaff series and the followup Castle Brass series are all focused on Dorian Hawkmoon.  He's a counterpart of Elric and other Moorcock "Eternal Champions".
