Rowdy Geirsson


Rowdy Geirsson has ingloriously served as McSweeney's sole Norse History for Bostonians correspondent since the dark and dreary, recession-ridden days of 2010. In 2017 he created Mis- adventures in Heavy Metalling, an ongoing, low-quality metal fiction column that evokes all the atmospheric riffs and indecipherable vocals of a 1980's Elizabeth Shue movie for the popular music site, Metal Sucks. He also regularly contributes other textual atrocities to the humor sites Points in Case and Slackjaw and is the sole proprietor of, a mediocre blog about Vikings past and present. He lives in the grim and frostbitten hinterlands of Norumbega, Vinland.
