Thrsk was a town in Yorkshire, England. Thrsk claimed to be the only town that didn't have a vowel in it, the Vikings having carried it off over a thousand years ago.

George Holley joined the veterinary practice of Wotan and Donner Rengaw in Thrsk in the 1930s.[1]

Literary comment[]

The fictional Thrsk is based on the actual town of Thirsk, Yorkshire. However, the name "Thrsk" comes from a Dungeons & Dragons campaign Laura Frankos was playing when she met future husband Harry Turtledove.[2]
