Get Ready for Vanic Awesomeness!

On Friday, August 1st,  Visions of Vanaheim by Nornoriel Lokason will be coming out.  Back in 2009, this was published under the name Svartesol, and later went out of print. Now it’s back with more content based on Nornoriel’s spiritual experiences. I’m glad to hear about this, because I remember enjoying reading Svartesol’s scholarship and unique insights regarding the Vanir and was sorry I did not get a copy when I had the chance. I’m also hoping he will re-publish American Wights. 

If you have an interest in Norse mythology (or myth in general) and are open to new interpretations, Visions of Vanaheim should be a treat. I feel all too often we are too afraid to share our personal experiences for fear of judgment as “fluffy”, and I think that is really getting in the way of growth. We can read about other people’s spiritual experiences and take what we find useful and what resonates with us, and set aside that which does not. 

Here are some previews of the material:

    I may wind up doing a more comprehensive book about land spirits, like a more expanded version of American Wights. I did make a promise to the Vanir that I would do the first two books of the Vanaheim series (Visions of Vanaheim is the first in a four-part series about Vanaheim and the Vanir /tease) before I work on anything else; I’m working on the second book now. I have a whoooooole list of projects, but a book about land spirits along the lines of American Wights is on the table, especially now that I live in Oregon and the land spirits are a lot more intense and palpable up here.

    And thank you so much for the promo! ❤
