About the book: 

FOR MAGNUS CHASE: HOTEL VALHALLA GUIDE TO THE NORSE WORLDS will whet readers' appetites for THE HAMMER OF THOR.

It is a 176-page, smaller format book with black-and-white illustrations throughout. Helgi - the hotel manager - created this book for each hotel guest, so that he wouldn't have to answer so many questions at the front desk.

It has short entries about the deities, mythical beings, and fantastic creatures from the nine Norse worlds, and also contains bonus material, including interviews, newspaper articles, short stories and more. The tone is humorous, complementing Rick's series.

About the Author

Rick Riordan is a teacher and a writer, and has won many awards for his mystery novels for adults. He says that the idea for Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief  first came to him while he was teaching Greek mythology at middle school in San Francisco. But rumour has it that Camp Half Blood actually exists, and Rick spends his summers there recording the adventures of young demigods. Some believe that, to avoid a mass panic among the mortal population, he was forced to swear on the River Styx to present Percy Jackson's story as fiction. Rick lives in Texas (apart from his summers on Half Blood Hill) with his wife and two sons.
