It never ceases to amaze me how something discovered in one book can than serendipitously turn up in the next one you read, no matter how random your choice of book may be. The last book I read, Possession by AS Byatt included reference to Ragnarok. It appears as a poem written by nineteenth century poet Randolph Ash, and is wholly fitting with his scientific fascination, and a world balanced on a rim between science and religion.

I move on to The Rapture by Liz Jensen, and lo and behold here is ragnarok again, mentioned between geologist, physicist and psychologist. Life, and reading, are indeed strange and wondrous!
