In Roger Zelazney's Creatures of Light and Darkness, he imagines the Egyptian Typhon, brother of Set, as a void that often takes the form of a stallion. He calls this entity "Skagganauk Abyss", which I always took to be a form of Ginnungagap, the primordial void of Norse mythology. This modern interpretation is resonant, so I'm wondering about its mythical roots.
- What is the possible meaning of "Skagganauk"?
Was it purely invented, or does it come from somewhere?
