Runes: Sorting fact from fiction
The Rune Primer: A Down-to-Earth Guide to the Runes
"Start from an informed perspective. Historical facts about runes in plain English. Old sources and translations. Esoteric interpretations. Reviews of popular authors. Modern myths exposed."
Pierced by the Light: Viking Gods, Runes and 21st Century Magic
"An educated Heathen speaks about runes & the Old Gods, and speaks out against the recent "invention of tradition"."
Rudiments of Runelore
"The basic academic facts about runic tradition. Esoteric focus, but no New-Age fantasies or imaginary cults."
Runes (Reading the past)
"A short academic overview of the runes by a foremost Professor. Useful for checking claims made in other books."
Voluspa: Seidhr As Wyrd Consciousness
"By a scholar & practitioner. A prophetic Old Norse text is examined for its deeper revelations about shamanic perception & Wyrd."
Old English and Its Closest Relatives: A Survey of the Earliest Germanic Languages
"An excellent overview of the languages spoken by the original rune users."
Our Troth: History and Lore: 1
"A comprehensive view of the Nordic mythology and its relationship to modern Heathen life."
An Introduction to English Runes
"Another scholarly book by the Professor, if you are looking for plain historical facts."
Runic Amulets and Magic Objects
"The only genuine survey of historical runic magical objects."
Thorsons Way of - The Runes
"One of the better popular books. Quite well researched."
Runecasters Handbook: The Well of Wyrd
"Popular & speculative. More scholarly than most, but doesn't always separate speculation from fact."
Taking Up the Runes: A Complete Guide to Using Runes in Spells, Rituals, Divination, and Magic
"Fairly ecclectic & Neopagan, some attempt to be scholarly. Worth reading, but a little too reliant on inventive modern rune writers."
Uthark: Nightside of the Runes
"Based largely on Thorsson's "Odian" philosophy. Completely speculative."
A Practical Guide to the Runes: Their Uses in Divination and Magick (Llewellyn's New Age)
"Example of a popular New-Age "fluffy" rune manual. To be taken with a grain of salt & some historical facts from books listed above."
Reading the Runes: A Beginner's Guide
"Another example of a popular New-Age rune manual. Even fluffier."
The Book of Runes
"The first really popular rune manual, completely fluffy, considered by many one of the worst. Claims to be about Viking runes. No Vikings consulted here."
Little Big Book Of Runes (Little Big Book (Astrolog))
"I just found one worse than Blum's. Unbelievable!"
