Rick R. Wilson describes himself as a “grizzled old runesinger." He has been a student of the occult in general, & runes specifically, for about forty years. A life-long Odinsman and a professional rune reader since 1994, Rick lives with his wife, Elise, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he teaches the occasional rune class and enjoys attending minor league hockey and Tulsa University football.

Thank you, Rick, for your welcome to new members. Thank you too for the list of books recommended. Apart from Bob Oswald's book I also have Northern Magic by Edred Thorsson and The Elder Edda translated and edited by Andy Orchard. I found Orchard's Introduction interesting and informative but getting into reading the Elder Edda quite a disciplined exercise. (Am still working on it...) I shall take time to read your VERY Brief History through thoughtfully. Kind regards.
Hello everyone! I just wanted to share the design for the cover of The Book of Rune Secrets, recently completed. This will (99%) probably be the final cover that will show up on Amazon and the actual book! Feedback appreciated, of course. Enjoy!
In the face of disaster, compassionate human beings discover that they do not break, but become stronger. We discover that our communities come together, even on a global scale, in face of unimaginable destruction. When the universe shows its inimical side, the side that couldn't care less about average human affairs, it's as if we come together to show overwhelmingly that we care for one another. When the universe demonstrates that it cannot be depended upon, that it is more than able to wreck havoc, we react by showing that we can depend upon one another.
