Issue #95 of IDUNNA, published in Spring 2013, focuses on "Wights" -- the many beings that inhabit the land and human homes: dwarves, álfar, housewights, and so on. Winifred Hodge Rose discusses landwights and human ecology, and also tells us about her housewight; Jennifer Lawrence writes about serving the landwights; Ben Waggoner presents a translation of the old tale of King Olaf Geirstad-Alf; and Birgit Knorr discusses the dwarves in J. R. R. Tolkien's Hobbit and their origins in Old Norse lore. Kveldulf Gundarsson contributes part III of his series "Loki's Role in the Northern Religions", and guest author H. S. Holtson makes a strong case for linking ancient heathen religion and modern environmentalism. And you'll also find book and music reviews, poetry, herbal lore, our usual columns, news from the Heathen community, and more!
