Sagas of Imagination

Hey all!

Just a quick announcement; Ben Waggoner’s latest translation of sagas — a collection titled Sagas of Imagination — is now available on Amazon.

It contains the following:

  • The Saga of King Half and his Warband
  • The Saga of Asmund Champions’-Bane
  • The Tale of Sorli
  • The Saga of the Apostle Bartholomew
  • The Saga of the Descent into Hell
  • Geography
  • The Physiologus and Related Texts

One might question the inclusion of Christian texts, but I find them very useful, especially when attempting to suss out Christian influences from genuine Heathen sources. By knowing how things were thought of in Christian works, we can more easily identify their impact on our own sagas and stories. In addition, the use of language is also instructive; by comparing Christian and Heathen use of words, we can gain more insight into their original meaning.

Definitely worth picking up!

New Moon February 2018

Second offering to the landwights this year. Other than the wind picking up as the varlokkr was sung (something that I’ve noticed quite often in the past), nothing particularly striking happened during the ritual itself.

Not sure if it’s particularly significant, but I did have a dream last night about being chased by hordes of people, barely escaping multiple times, and finally being trapped by hordes of people coming at me from all sides.

Heilung Lifa

Wonderful, inspirational stuff. I’m really hoping Heilung does a US tour at some point. I would definitely go.
