Would You Know Yet More? The Runa Interviews with Edred Thorsson

Edited by Ian Read and Michael Moynihan This is one of many books that feature the words of Edred Thorsson, but it is the only one which involve an interviewer. The book consists mostly of the interviews conducted by Ian Read for his Rûna magazine, which ran from 1997 to 2009, plus a 2019 interview done by Joshua Buckley and Michael Moynihan. Ian Read supplies a foreword, and the text is nicely organized according to the themes of the questions, so it's possible to follow an idea through the relevant chapter. The themes include: - The Rune-Gild, Cosmology and the Gods, Monotheism and modernity; - Asatru and the neopagan revival; - The Woodharrow Institute; - The Goths; - J R R Tolkien, the Spear of Destiny and the Modern Mythos; - Tradition and Modernity; - Towards the Birth of an Odian Philosophy: Hans Naumann and Nietzsche's Ewige Wiede
