Four works by Edred Thorsson[Stephen E. Flowers, PhD] which are particularly useful for those wishing to master these techniques are: Nine Doors of Midgard. Rune Lore. Futhark. Rune Might. Although Nine Doors of Midgard uses exclusively the 24 rune Elder or Common Germanic Futhark the techniques may be adopted for use with the 33 rune Anglo-Saxon or Northumbrian Futhork, the 16 rune Younger Futhark or the 18 rune Armanen Futhork. It should be noted that Rune Might exclusively focuses on the Armanen Futhork. Whilst Edred focuses mainly on the Elder Futhark in most of his runic works he is clearly influenced by the teachings of the great Armanen Rune Masters; in particular Guido von List. He has been instrumental in bringing these vitally important works to the English speaking world with his translation and publication of von List`s Das Geheimnis der Runen[The Secret of the Runes], Die Religion der Ario-Germanen[The Religion of the Aryo-Germanic Folk, Der Unbesiegbar[The Invinceable] and In Rune Might he puts forward the essential teaching and practices of the Armanen. Edred has also published the works of Karl Maria Wiligut in The Secret King: Karl Maria Wiligut, Himmler`s Lord of the Runes and recently updated and added to the text in a later edition: The Secret King: The Myth and Reality of Nazi Occultism.
