Personal blog for things.



Jochum Magnus Eggertsson ( 9 September 1896 - 23 February 1966 ) was an Icelandic writer and poet , folk scholar and forestry man who wrote the rule under the author name Skuggi. He was born in Skógum in Thorskafjord and was the nephew of Matthias Jochumsson poet.

My sister visited Iceland (the birthplace of my great grandmother) for her honeymoon this past month and found this book for me. Galdraskræða is a collection of spells and magical theories, using various runes.
Unfortunately the book has not yet been translated into English, but it’s a very special gift that I will study to the best of my ability!
It was first published in 1940, but was reissued last year (2013).

I need this.
