Runelore Bibliography

If the title is hyperlinked, the book can be ordered from Click on the hyperlinked title to be taken to When possible, I've identified other sources, such as Rûna-Raven Press or Anglo-Saxon Books. I've found used copies on eBay, , and . The older ones may be available in a large public or university library.

It has been brought to my attention that my bibliographies have been extracted verbatim by lazy college students, for use in their own term papers. Of course, it doesn't fool anyone. However, to make it a teeny bit more difficult, I've removed the publication data. They can still copy, but they'll have to do a bit more work. One does have to wonder if they've also copied the term papers.

I like it for its artistic value and the representation of the gods. Only 21 cards bear rune sigels so it's not much use as a rune deck.
