Great stories, and while the introduction describes Christianity as the "early and prime" faith of Scandinavia, some do retain elements of the pre-Christian folk spirituality. Its a pretty extensive collection. The organization is by country, which allows interesting characterization of the various cultures of the region.

A wonderful collection of folk and fairy tales; you can see the roots of what inspired Tolkien and what continues to inspire Gaiman.
