This is a list of books containing Scandinavian/Norse mythology as a theme, including the Eddas, sagas, reference books, as well as classic and modern fiction set in the Viking Age or involving Norse Mythology, Scandinavian folklore and fairy tales. I have also included Anglo-Saxon literature and books dealing with Teutonic Mythology, since they are all closely related. The list is in chronological order.
