Holland who translated The Norse Myths, I must say his work in
ancient northern mythology and folklore is excellent. His writing
style is smooth and very fluid, although I don't know what his
fiction is like.
Here are a selection of KCH books at Barnes and Noble (I have not
included any affiliate links):
He is a MUST READ, in my opinion, for anyone who is interested in
J.R.R. Tolkien's Norse influences. And you'll see that he has also
published some Anglo-Saxon works, incluing a translation of "Beowulf"
and an anthropological book on the Anglo-Saxon world.
I am surprised to find his books so accessible. A few years ago,
when my copy of THE NORSE MYTHS was damaged (in fact, I feared it was
lost), I tried to find another copy of it and could not.
