On 6 October, episode 13 will post welcoming Alaric Albertsson and Taren David Martin to the Wyrd hall. We discuss Anglo-Saxon Heathenry, Alaric’s re-release of his book – A Handbook of Saxon Sorcery & Magic, and the Martin Rune Deck, an Anglo-Saxon rune set created by Alaric and Tarin.
Production note: we had feedback on a microphone that we could not adjust. We continued on and I tried to minimize it as much as possible (many hours of post-production). I hope that I got it to a point where you can hear and understand Alaric well enough. Please forgive the tech difficulties.
A Handbook of Saxon Sorcery & Magic: Wyrdworking, Rune Craft, Divination & Wortcunning by Alaric Albertsson. This is a re-release of his earlier work Wyrdworking which is out of print. Book shops can order from Llewellyn (support your local shop) or you can order from your online retailer.
Martin Anglo-Saxon Rune Deck: A 33 card deck featuring the Anglo-Saxon runes with artwork by Taren Martin. Deck comes with a booklet with description and rune poem by Alaric Albertsson. However,the runes are fully described in Alaric’s book A Handbook of Saxon Sorcery & Magic. The two are great companions.
- Intro: Five for Freya by Hauk Heimdallsman.
- Outro: Norns by Tonya Threet.
Notes and announcements:
Völuspá cd by Tonya Threet is now available. Tonya sets stanzas of the Völuspá to music. I’ve heard samples (one featured on Episode 11) and think it will be a really good album. I’m looking forward to my copy. Look for her on Facebook at Tonya Threet or email Tonyathreet09@gmail.com.
Odin: Ecstasy, Runes, and Norse Magic by Diana L. Paxson is now available. check with your local metaphysical shop to see if they can order it from Weiser (support them when you can) or order from Weiser Books or your favorite online seller.
Runes of the Northern Lights by Paola Tartara. Rune deck with Runes depicted in a delightful retro style. Beautifully colored. This deck will be available October 2017 and can also be ordered from Llewellyn by your local book shop. I will be doing a deck review of this.
