Wodan sat back in his High Seat as he looked back over the last ten years. The mess known as Discovery Center had been eliminated and Midgard was free....... Morgan vividly remembered the conversation that he and his sister had with his goddess birth mother, the Morrigan, and Freya before the Discovery Center assault. Morgan found out that, had Freya had a different disposition, she would have been chosen as his goddess birth mother and not the Morrigan. That fact did not sit well with him, when he considered that Freya wanted to seduce him to piss off the Morrigan....... Freya had picked up the slack for Sunny, preforming the various duties that fell to Sunny after her mother Ginas death. It appeared to Freya, and too many other gods and goddesses, that Sunny was a woman beyond redemption.......

The compelling world of the Vikings and their descendants - preserved in the sagas, poetry, and mythology of medieval Iceland - has provided inspiration for centuries to artists and writers across Europe as well as to scholars devoted to editing and interpreting the manuscript texts. Imagining this distant'hyperborean' world has been the spur to a broad range of creative ventures, by editors, translators, playwrights, librettists, novelists, poets and cartoonists. The essays in this volume, by scholars from Italy, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Germany, and the UK, examine the scholarly and artistic reception of a variety of Old Norse texts from the beginnings of the manuscript tradition in twelfth-century Iceland to contemporary poetry, crime fiction and graphic novels in Britain, Ireland, Italy and Iceland. In between, the influence of Old Norse literature is explored in the context of Shakespeare's plays, eighteenth-century Italian opera, the Romantic movement in Sweden and Denmark, the so-called 'Nordic renaissance' of the late nineteenth-century (including the works of August Strindberg and William Morris) and some of the political movements of twentieth-century northern Europe. Interest in Old Norse literature is charted as it spread beyond the academies of Europe out to a wide reading and viewing public. The influence of the hyperborean muse is evident throughout - affecting editors as well as artists - as the idea of early Nordic culture has been refashioned to suit contemporary ideals.

'From the Fury of the Northmen deliver us, O Lord.' Between the eighth and eleventh centuries, the Vikings surged from their Scandinavian homeland to trade, raid and invade along the coasts of Europe. Their influence and expeditions extended from Newfoundland to Baghdad, their battles were as far-flung as Africa and the Arctic. But were they great seafarers or desperate outcasts, noble heathens or oafish pirates, the last pagans or the first of the modern Europeans? This concise study puts medieval chronicles, Norse sagas and Muslim accounts alongside more recent research into ritual magic, genetic profiling and climatology. It includes biographical sketches of some of the most famous Vikings, from Erik Bloodaxe to Saint Olaf, and King Canute to Leif the Lucky. It explains why the Danish king Harald Bluetooth lent his name to a twenty-first century wireless technology; which future saint laughed as she buried foreign ambassadors alive; why so many Icelandic settlers had Irish names; and how the last Viking colony was destroyed by English raiders. Extending beyond the traditional 'Viking age' of most books, A Brief History of the Vikings places sudden Scandinavian population movement in a wider historical context. It presents a balanced appraisal of these infamous sea kings, explaining both their swift expansion and its supposed halt. Supposed because, ultimately, the Vikings didn't disappear: they turned into us.

In Greek mythology, Hyperboreans were a tribe who lived far to Greece's north. Contained in what has come down to us of Greek literary tradition are texts that identify the Hyperboreans with the Celts, or Hyperborean lands with Celtic ones. This groundbreaking book studies the texts that make or imply this identification, and provides reasons why some ancient Greek authors identified a mythical people with an actual one. Timothy P. Bridgman demonstrates not only that these authors mythologize history, but that they used the traditional Greek parallel mythical world to interpret history throughout ancient Greek culture, thought and literature.

Most people who have studied occultism for more than a few years have heard of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. That's not surprising. Many people who were members of that society wrote books that have directly or indirectly influenced occultism for over 100 years. But what about today? Are there no writers who will also influence occultism for decades to come? There certainly are, and you can read their words in the volumes of the Golden Dawn Journal, including The Magical Pantheons. Just as many members of the Golden Dawn in the past wrote books that have influenced generations, so, too, will the information in this book be a reference for and influence on occultists for years to come. The book has articles by famous and high-powered occult authors such as Chic and Sandra Tabatha Cicero, Kisma K. Stepanich, Chris Zalewski, James A. Eshelman, John Michael Greer, and Donald Michael Kraig. There are other articles written by up-and-comers, too. As the title suggests, this book looks at the pantheons of deities used in magick. Even if you're not involved in Golden Dawn magick, you're going to find something that will fascinate you. Subjects include everything from an examination of the god-names on the Tree of Life and missing parts of Aleister Crowley's 777 (originally a Golden Dawn manuscript), to why we should claim our Pagan polytheistic heritage and proof that the gods really do exist. If you are one of the many people who are seeking more in-depth occult information, this is the book for you. Some of your favorite authors have taken this opportunity to really delve into intriguing topics that will have you thinking for years to come.
