James and Norm appear on Enough Rope with Andrew Denton. That's Andrew on the right. I think.

  1. Do you have plans to annimate the story? I venture boh of you’d get funding because of the subject and James, surely with your art, the groundwork has been done. I’m told basic annimation costs between $500 and $1000 a minute.
    If you want to have a go at doing a screenplay Norm – I’ll help you.
    (I already have a signed copy of the book…)
    Best hugs,

  2. Hi James,
    My question relates to the research for your subject matter. 🙂
    Having lived in Norway for 4 years and being subject to the ins-and-outs of modern-day vikings, I’m curious as to whether the “last” viking:
    1.) Was ever able to enjoy more that one brand of beer?
    2.) Used the word “please” in everyday conversation?
    3.) Ate anything other than fish and potatoes?
    4.) Partook in using “snus”?
    5.) Had his own cabin (hytte) that he visited on every opportunity?
    6.) Went on expeditions to Sweden to purchase cheap meat and liquor?
