Let there be mist and mischief

Let there be mist and mischief,
let marvels befall all those
that as foes seek you.

Okay, that bit of sorcery is actually out of Njal’s Saga. But my Icelandic grimoire arrived today, faster than expected. It’s a small, truly pocket sized, two-volume paperback set–a fascimile of the original, and then the translation. Lovely, lovely little thing; and one of only 150 that they’ve printed, too.

This is going to be fun. No buyer’s remorse at all.

Bought a couple other sweet books from the same museum, too, including one on the history of prosecuting witches in Iceland.
