Excerpt from The Dark Sister
One final remark: amidst the far - gathered evidence of the gen eral truth of the old sagas, there is among scholars an equally far Hung variety of opinion as to the locale of the Viking explora tions and discoveries. Decosta, Holand, and Reman are among those whose books argue the matter. It is of no importance in such a project as mine, but it has pleased me to think of 'hel luland' as Labrador, 'markland' as Nova Scotia, 'wonderstrand' as Cape Cod, and 'i-iop' as the shores of Narragansett Bay - thus permitting the conceit that I have rewritten not only the first of American tragedies but, more specifically for me, a regional one.
