The Way of Wyrd: Tales of an Anglo-Saxon Sorcerer 
by Brian Bates

Reviewed by David Rankine

This book really is one of those works that you have to read, whatever your path. It is like a cross between the style of Carlos Castaneda with J.R.R. Tolkien, set in the context of Anglo-Saxon Britain. Within this wonderful work of fiction is presented a detailed insight into the worldview and magick of the Anglo-Saxon sorceror, working within the web of wyrd and acting as part of the all-encompassing web of wyrd. In an age where growing dissatisfaction with the material and mundane is causing more and more people to seek spiritual meaning and a re-connection with our heritage and nature, The Way of Wyrd shines out as a beacon on a distant hill, calling us through the mists to re-awaken our spirits.
