    1. Stephen Edred Flowers born 1953 also known by the pen name Edred Thorsson, is an American Runologist and proponent of occultism and Germanic mysticism He has over two dozen published books and hundreds of published papers on a disparate range of subjects Flowers advocates Esoteric Runology or Odianism , an occultist version of Germanic Neopaganism.

    2. Edred Thorsson has an interesting goal with this book (as with much of his writing): to raise the intellectual level of discussion within a neopagan religious community, while still maintaining the level of faith required to practice within that community. This book succeeds somewhat more in the first part of that goal than the second, although it has flaws on both sides. Thorsson presents much of the current scholarship on runes and ancient Norse religion in a digestible fashion, colored with h [...]

    3. My second and last book I will ever read on esoteric runology. I love reading about the runes by historians, such as how they were used, what they said and the artwork that sometimes accompanied them when chiseled on stone. This book does have some of that in part one. It even had a nice translation of the rune poems.But in part two, the author enters the realm of abstruse esoterica; metaphysical stuff (mostly thought up in the 20th century), on how the runes have a toehold in Jungian psychology [...]

    4. This is an excellent companion book to Thorsson's earlier, "Futhark." In RuneLore, many ideas that were hinted at in his previous work are expounded upon. Thorsson is one of the preeminent occultists of our time. That's a compliment and an insult; his mysticism can occasionally come across as mere platitudes, but his actual scholarship makes this book worthwhile. Obviously, this isn't going to interest everyone. Check it out if you have experience with occult literature.

    5. So well researched and filled with runic information. Particularly good if you're interested in a thorough history research on runes. Wonderful another amazing gift I have received this year!

    6. Legend tells that the runic wisdom was brought to the gods and people by way of the god Odin. It is said that Odin hung from the world-tree (Yggdrasill) for nine nights. Wounded by a spear and losing an eye to the ravens, the runes were said to have risen from the roots of the tree and Odin received their knowledge.This is the second book Edred wrote regarding runes, and their lore and magic. While it contains some things from the first book, it definitely has some surprises of its own. New with [...]

    7. A favorite of mine. Edred's writings have always addressed many of my questions concerning rune history. Some may have a problem with his writing style and his past, I think it gives his writings backbone.Overall one of the better books on runes that leaves the fluff behind.

    8. An incredible and essential study of the archaeological and historical runic artefacts around Europe. For the intense student of the runes, then this is an essential part of their development and understanding of the historic basis for the uses of the runes.

    9. This and Futhark are the books to read to learn about the runes. All other books should be gauged according to the information in these two books to determine accuracy.

    10. A pretty good book. Looking at runes from a different angle.One of the better rune books I've read.
