By the will of Odin, Anderson was born in the seaside port of Vancouver, British Columbia, where he quickly infiltrated Canadian society, posing as one of its own. Of course, the real plan was to use the West Coast as a jumping-off spot to raid Scottish Isles. Alas, there were no Scottish Isles in the Pacific to be found.
Turning his attention Eastward, Anderson searched for other vikings to band together with on route to Scotland. However, while he found other vikings in the Norwegian Club of Toronto, he also found that the appetite for raiding Scotland dried up about 1000 years ago. Resigning himself to the modern Nordic life of civility, Anderson took an interest in cinema, where the sagas could remain as fresh today as they were in days of yore. He finished his MFA in Film Production at York University, and writes & teaches about cinema in between writing newsletter blurbs for the club.
