    A Practical Heathen’s Guide to Asatru, Patricia M. Lafayllve, Llewellyn Publications, 2013, $16.99
    As the recent movie Thor: The Dark World has shown, the gods and goddesses of Asgard are quite popular. But what does it mean to be a modern day follower and practitioner of the ways of the Aesir and Vanir? This comprehensive yet easy to understand guide provides answers that heathens of all experience levels can use and appreciate. Written by a certified Godwoman and heathen of 17 years, the book begins with an introduction to the meaning of Heathenry and Asatru — those who are “true or faithful to the gods and goddesses.” This is done by reading, interpreting and practicing the faith of the pre-Christian Europeans — the English, Icelandic, Norwegian and Germans — whose stories Thor and his kindred are based upon.
    — Mary French, New Connexion Journal

    Great book. However, I've written a few times to both Heathen organizations the author belongs to, for purposes of membership and information, and have yet to hear from a living soul. Perhaps I'll just write the author via the publisher --- them maybe I'll hear from someone.
