1.0 out of 5 stars You Can Find Better Than This........., 26 Nov 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Rune Magic (Llewellyn's Practical Magick) (Paperback)
This book is basically another one of those books written solely to "Pay the Bills": while this book does provide some historical background on the Runes, it has been largely hijacked from other modern sources written in the English tongue. The Lore itself is not even treated from a Northern European Magical Mindset, rather from the perspective of a practitioner of Western Ceremonial Magic, with little focus upon the System from the cultural perspective of those that actually utilized the Runes for Magical and divinatory practices. While lore concerning some of the Norse Deities associated with the Runes is included, it should be noted that the author has a less than favorable opinion towards these Gods, as noted in his works on Ceremonial Magic: the deities have been label as "Demonic" in at least one of his other works. While I offer no opinion on Mr. Tyson's other works, I can with a bit of authority (the perspective of a Rune Magician within the Northern Tradition) state that this work is unworthy of a serious student's time and hard-earned coin. Look elsewhere
