Two additional books by Synge deal with the themes of myth and magic.

Weland: Smith of the Gods is an adaptation of a Norse myth that tells the story of Weland and his two brothers, Slagfid and Eigel. All three are heroic characters who encounter mysterious, magical forces in lands beyond their own. Like Land of Heroes, Weland is an exciting adventure story that ponders the meaning of human existence. Weland also leaves the reader feeling sorrowful that the wonder of ancient times is gone.

The Giant at the Ford is Synge's retelling of the legendary stories of heroic saints who contributed to England's mythic history. Included here are the stories of St. George and the dragon, St.

Jerome, St. Christopher, and many others.
