What are some good books that draw inspiration from Norse or Japanese mythology?

Dieties of the Sun and Moon

I've been wondering something lately. Are most gods in various cultures associated with the moon female, and male for the sun? It stems from my recent interest in learning about Japanese mythology because I know that Amaterasu is a sun goddess. This made me curious.

Norse Mythology

Hi, [info]mythologies!

Does anyone have any suggestions of a good place to start with Norse mythology? Books would be preferred, but scholarly websites welcome as well.

Hello all! I had two questions I was hoping someone could help answer.

First, I've been trying to find a good book or two on Celtic mythology, just a general overview. I don't know much about it. What I do know I've found fascinating, but I'm having trouble finding something.

Second question is two fold. Would you consider King Arthur and Arthurian myth to fall within the scope of discussion here? I have a question or two about it, but I don't want to ask if it's not really what the community is about. Thanks!
