Ogam: Weaving Word Wisdom by Erynn Rowan Laurie/erynn999 is now available for preorder! It will be out this September from Immanion Press/Megalithica Books, and the cover price is $22.49 (it'll be over 300 pages; I'm still working on the layout).|
Ogam: Weaving Word Wisdom is written from a Celtic Reconstructionist viewpoint; Erynn has definite done her research, as the extensive footnotes and bibliography show. She shows how some of the common sources used in ogam are incorrect or outdated, and provides better alternatives, to include primary sources. However, this isn't just a dry academic text. It's based on the author's many years of experience working magic with ogam, divinatory and otherwise. She has an excellent writing style that's inviting and informative, and has a good balance of both theory and practical material.
Oh, and in case you thought ogam was just about trees--it's not. Erynn explains just how diverse and complex a system ogam really is, and why there are so many misconceptions about tree ogam.
So if you've any interest in well-researched Celtic culture and/or spirituality, divination, or enjoyed Erynn's earlier works (such as A Circle of Stones), you'll enjoy Ogam: Weaving Word Wisdom.
