However I'm going to forgo all that to do a bit of advertising for my new book.
This is actually my second book but as the first was on John Dee's Enochian magic, which is a world away from folk magic, I didn't mention it.
But my new book is much closer...
The Book is entitled "RUNEN - The Wisdom of the Runes
Here's the blurb from my publisher Aeon Sophia Press.
What is presented here is without doubt, the most misunderstood, probably the most cynically abused set of runes in the history of runology. The Armanen runes have been ignored by scholars, abused by right wing extremists and largely forgotten by students of the occult. Nevertheless the Armanen runes are in many ways the quintessential esoteric rune row. Originally conceived of by the nineteenth century German mystic Guido von List, the Armanen runes offer us the most esoterically charged futharks ever encountered. But in order to fully understand the significance of the Armanen runes we must first examine their history, and attempt to dispel some of the myths that have grown up around them. We can then move on to examine them in detail. In doing so it is hoped that this present text will demonstrate that the Armanen runes deserve to be returned to their rightful place at the zenith of true rune magic and not left in the hands of fanatics who have no idea of their true meaning as symbols of transformation granting access into the deeper unconscious and what may lie beyond.

Incidentally my next book IS about Folk Magic, but from a slightly different 'angle'...
