Bright from the Well - Dave Lee
This book of Norse mlyth nd magic is made up of five stories, five essays and a rune-poem. T
The stories: these arise from the Norse myths: the marriage of Frey and Gerd, Gullveig-Heidh power revelation, Rig's Tale, and the god. In one tale, we meet Loki attending a pagan pub moot; elsewhere Lee gives us an image of Ragnarok as seen through the eyes of an ancient shaman. The essays: Dave Lee analyses some themes and topics: the Norse creation myth, the position of the magician in the world (or against the world), and a chaos magic interpretatation of magical experiences in the Northern traditions. Dave Lee is a longstanding practitioner of Chaos Magic in the UK, whose work also involves element from the northern traditions.
