On tonight on BBC 4 at 9pm BST and for UK members will be on the BBC iPlayer for the next 7 days.

"Hundreds of years ago in faraway Iceland the Vikings began to write down dozens of stories called sagas - sweeping narratives based on real people and real events. But as Oxford University's Janina Ramirez discovers, these sagas are not just great works of art, they are also priceless historical documents which bring to life the Viking world. Dr Ramirez travels across glaciers and through the lava fields of Iceland to the far north west of the country to find out about one of the most compelling of these stories - the Laxdaela Saga."

Yes Carl, one suspected you might collect them!

I actually just bought XVII before any of you replied after reading Garth's review in TS. It sounds like a very important piece, well worth purchasing & reading. Unfortunate so many are OOP though. What's the point in publishing this stuff & not being able to keep it in print? I appreciate the work the guys who produce all this stuff put in, but why can't these be kept available via POD or something. Carl has managed to keep VT available with the collected volumes of VT, as mentioned.

Hi Khamul,

sorry about the spam. Those actually made it to the website, and I had to hand moderate/delete them and the account they came from, plus blocking the IP address to hopefully prevent a relapse. Hopefully it will not happen again soon.

Now the question is; are copies of PE17 still available? And, where can I obtain one?
