Never be lost for words again...with this book of lost words.

Have you ever wanted to wield the silver tongue of Loki – or to hammer home your point like a Thundergod?

Old Norse is the language of legends and the stuff of sagas, the inspiration for Tolkien and Marvel, for award-winning manga and epic videogames. It is the language of cleverly crafted kennings, blood-curdling curses and pithy retorts to Ragnarök.

Old Norse for Modern Times gives you the perfect phrase for every contemporary situation:

Memorable movie quotes ("We're going to need a bigger boat." Þurfa munu vér skip stærra)
Battle-cries to yell on Discord ("Do I look to be in a gaming mood?" Sýnisk þér ek vera í skapi til leika?)
Mead hall musings ("This drink, I like it! ANOTHER!" Líkar mér drykkr þessi! ANNAN!)
Tried-and-tested pickup lines ("Nice tattoo!" Fagrt er húðflúrið").

About the author: Ian Stuart Sharpe (Ión Stívarður Skarpi) likes to imagine he is descended from Guðrum, King of the East Angles, although DNA tests and a deep disdain for camping suggest otherwise. He is the author of two novels set in his alternate Vikingverse, the All Father Paradox and Loki's Wager. As a child he discovered his love of books, sci-fi and sagas: devouring the works of Douglas Adams, J.R.R. Tolkien, Terry Pratchett and George MacDonald Fraser alongside Snorri Sturluson and Sigvat the Skald. He once won a prize at school for Outstanding Progress and chose a dictionary as his reward, secretly wishing it had been an Old Norse phrasebook. It took him thirty years, but he has finally realised his dream.
