Gods of the Runes should be in every occultists library.--John Tiffany, editor of The Barnes ReviewInvented long before the appearance of the runic alphabet Futhark some two thousand years ago, the runes were originally created as symbols for specific deities. Representing the twenty-four Norse gods and goddesses from the Vanir and Aesir pantheons, the runes provide a way to establish direct contact with the divine shapers of fate.Based on the work of Austrian mystic and runologist Guido von List and anthropologist Marija Gimbutas as well as the oldest rune artifacts to survive from pre-Christian Europe, this book reveals the long history of runes from their appearances in Paleolithic cave paintings through their rechristening in medieval times to their modern resurgence as a popular tool of divination.

It uncovers the original names and divinatory meanings of each rune by exploring the myths, personality traits, astrological periods, identifying colors, and gemstones of the runes corresponding god or goddess. It also illustrates and explains five ancient rune-casting spreads used by Norse adepts for divination as well as character analysis. Gods of the Runes shows how working with the runes can be a genuine mystical experience, enabling a personal connection with the gods and a rediscovery of their perennial truths.FRANK JOSEPH was the editor in chief of Ancient American magazine from 1993 until 2009 and is the author of many books, including Atlantis and 2012, Advanced Civilizations of Prehistoric America, The Destruction of Atlantis, and Survivors of Atlantis.

He lives in Minnesota. IAN DANIELS has been a professional fantasy painter and illustrator since 1995 and lives in Kent, England.
