Ships in 3-5 business days
Many are the tales which were once told of the Druid called Mac Criomthann and the adventures which befell him in the years he wandered Ireland – for it was not a man of Ériu that he... More > was, but a Briton, and how he came by his name and his nature in that great island I have told elsewhere. Most of his stories are lost now, or attributed to other heroes and magicians, but these few I have salvaged. I learned them once from an ancient Storyteller, long ago in a distant land. Now I share them with you here…< Less

The poems in this little book were primarily intended for use in Neopagan Druidical rituals, but there's no reason others shouldn't enjoy them, and perhaps find them pertinent to their own...

A preliminary limited edition of five copies was prepared for ADF’s 2013 Eight Winds Festival, held in July 2013 at Trout Lake Abbey in Washington state. This second edition contains a few additional poems written after that date.< Less

Songs of Wales: A Poetry Collection By G. R. Grove
Paperback: $7.56
Ships in 3-5 business days
Most of these poems have been published before in one or another of my previous collections, although there are a few new ones at the end. However, although a good portion of my work over the last... More > twenty years has been connected with Wales and the Welsh, these poems are intermingled with an assortment of other material in my two trade paperback collections (King Arthur’s Raid on Hell and Other Poems and Pryderi’s Pigs and Other Poems), with brief extracts from the Storyteller books in Storyteller Songs, and with other religious poetry in Druid Songs. I therefore decided to draw together most of my Welsh material in one small-format volume for the convenience of the reader uninterested in, e.g., material connected with the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) or with other Indo-European traditions. I have also included a few pieces not previously published. - G. R. Grove< Less

More > well, and this was the way of it: for I, Gwernin Kyuarwyd, was there, and saw much of it myself, and the tale that I tell you is true…” In 6th century Wales, the ash spear – pren onn – was a symbol of warfare and of manhood, but it also stood for awen, the poetic inspiration of the bards. As war comes to North Wales, bardic apprentice Gwernin must master all three of its meanings in order to keep himself and his friends alive. From otherworldly dangers to rich rewards in the fire-lit halls of kings, from bloody battle and grueling labor to tender romance, The Ash Spear follows him in the thrilling conclusion of this first trilogy in the Storyteller series.< Less
