This is a very interesting website that someone at wotmania (thanks Finbul-Ragnar) brought to my attention. The site is The Online Medieval and Classical Library, and it contains an extensive library of various translations from many medieval epics. He was specifically recommending The Saga of Grettir the Strong as a great read for fans of fantasy. This is quite literally what much modern speculative fiction is made of.
I look forward to spending some time going through the various stories here.
