Aaron Meyer
An excellent look at a medieval Icelandic Grimoire. The history was very interesting to read, especially since it is a subject so overlooked.
Classic Flowers. EXCELLENT translation, including explanations of ambiguity where possible, and no pretension. Half of this book is sortof a historical prologue, which does an amazing job at giving you a thorough understanding of the context these spells were created in, so you can really get a feel for their form and function.
VERY well done. Excellent foreword (about half the book) to provide context. Many references cited. Very highly recommended for fans of The Necronomicon or other grimoires. Flowers is hands-down the best in the field.
Fun and informative.
Great if you are into runes and runic lore.
