Bookversary: He is Frenzy

Sometime it’s hard to believe just how much time has passed when these bookversaries come around. It has been six years since, He is Frenzy was first published. As a devotee of Odin, I have published several books around Him through the years: my first devotional (and the first devotional in all of Heathenry/the Northern Tradition) Whisperings of Woden, followed by Walking Toward Yggdrasil, He is Frenzy and then most recently a little chap book of prayers Nine for Odin.




He is Frenzy collects all of the essays and poetry that Northern Tradition author Galina Krasskova has written to honor the God Odin since 1995. Providing a survey of His ancient and modern cultus, it is also a deeply personal exploration of devotion, ordeal work and what it takes to walk the Odinic path.

Available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble





So for my loyal readers who have read these various books around Odin, what was your favorite, and why?

    HE IS FRENZY is actually my favorite of *all* your books.

  2. “He is Frenzy” is also my favorite out of the list. But that is a somewhat limited endorsement since I haven’t read the others yet (sorry, they’re all on my ever increasing “to do list”.

    I bought that book right before my first deployment to Afghanistan almost six years ago, and will be bringing it with me the next time I go in the near future. That book, “Runes: Theory and Practice” and “Honoring the Ancestors” are also going along with me, as well as “Neolithic Shamanism” (which I haven’t quite finished yet due to my often erratic attention span/work life/ops tempo/blah blah blah/excuses/procrastination being incompatible with doing many of the exercises detailed in it, and taking them seriously.)

    But honestly, I found “He is Frenzy” comprehensive enough and unlike anything else that I know about or have read previously to justify not reading your previous works on Odin or those of other authors. It seems like a “best of the best” kind of book given it’s subject matter based on what I know of.

    Please keep doing what you do. It’s great stuff, and I (and many others) greatly appreciate the work that you do,

      Thank you for your kind words. I am glad that this work has been helpful to you (read everything on Him you can though — you never know when He’ll strike with His inspiration through some random phrase or sentence. I’ve read single lines that have brought me to my knees before). I think my ancestor book is probably one of the most important ones I’ve written. People are talking about it all the time now (ancestor work) but when I wrote that book just a few years ago, it was a huge fight. anyway, if you email me your address before your next deployment (krasskova at i’ll send you the newest prayer book.
