The Broken Sword

A novel by Poul Anderson was a fast and interesting read. I read Three Hearts And Three Lions earlier this year, and had purchased this second book to read as well. I found the descriptions of Europe and the lore of the Norse and Faerie to be very interesting, and much different from what I’m used to from Tolkien.

I imagine this will have quite an impact on my D&D games at some point, as it is fun to learn about different takes on ancient stories and lore, and depictions of how such fantasy things might have been. It is a shame there aren’t more movies in the fiction and science fiction genres for me to watch. There are fortunately many books in this area, and I suppose that will remain a future source for me, while gaming remains a creative outlet.
