Interior pages clean and unmarked. ~~ The Iceland Review Saga Series offers representative samples from the best of the Icelandic saga literature, with the aim of providing accurate and readable translations as well as scholarly and critical information for study. ~ The Saga of Viga-Glum ("killer-Glum") is the story of a ruthless chieftain in north Iceland and his conflict with those who challenged him. "The events of the story take place against a background of heathen beliefs and traditions and the laws of the ancient commonwealth that lasted in Iceland for three hundred years. The straightforward, rapid action of the Saga and vivid characterization of its chief protagonist make this one of the most readable of the shorter Sagas of Icelanders." --Foreword.
