I seldom submit reviews of online purchases but felt compelled to for my interaction with 13 Moons (apologies for the delay). The depth of the catalog is impressive; I stumbled on the site for one thing and came away with a handful. I submitted my order at 02:30 on Monday morning, and the package arrived on Tuesday. That was astounding; no other word for it. Handwritten notes on the double-checked packing slip showed the attention to detail missing from so many places as well as a personal touch of saying 'I was here', and the small charm attached as a bonus was a token of endearing thoughtfulness. I'll gladly come back to 13 Moons time and again, and am in fact filling a cart on another browser tab as I write this.

Odin
Ecstasy, Runes, & Norse Magic
By Diana L. Paxson

Odin is arguably one of the most enigmatic and complex characters in Norse mythology. Revered since the Viking Age, Odin has been called the greatest of the gods—the god of words and wisdom, runes and magic, a transformer of consciousness, and a trickster who teaches truth. He is both war god and poetry god, and he is the Lord of Ravens, the All-Father, and the rune master.

Odin: Ecstasy, Runes, and Norse Magic is the first book on Odin that is both historically sourced and accessible to a general audience. It explores Odin’s origins, his appearances in sagas, old magic spells, and the Poetic Edda, and his influence on modern media, such as Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings trilogy. Each chapter features suggestions for rituals, exercises, and music, so readers can comprehend and become closer to this complicated god.

Author Diana Paxson, an expert on Viking-era mythology, provides a complete portrait of Odin and draws on both scholarship and experience to provide context, resources, and guidance for those who are drawn to work with the Master of Ecstasy today.

Diana Paxson is a writer, priestess, and teacher who has been studying and teaching Germanic mythology and religion for nearly 30 years. Paxson also pioneered the recovery of traditional Norse oracular practice, described in The Way of the Oracle.

"Reading Diana Paxson’s most excellent book, Odin: Ecstasy, Runes, and Norse Magic, whilst listening to WardRuna. This is perhaps the most comprehensive book ever written about Odin. Written with sound scholarship allied to intuitive perception. Capturing the best of both, and a sense of humour to boot. Each chapter is ended by a list of suggestions for working with him. Apart from the scholarship and poetic vision, it is also a most pleasant read! Recommended for everyone interested in Odin. Very, very helpful to students, but also rich in details and associations from other good books. which are listed in the bibliography! All in all, a very worthwhile work and as such equally useful to Old Timers like me." —Freya Aswynn, author of Northern Mysteries and Magick: Runes & Feminine Powers
