Our Featured FoxFire Authors
Osred Jameson is one of the leading lights of Odinism, and known for his ardent, intellectual defense of our native religion. He rightly takes his place among greats such as Stubba, Rud Mills and Else Christensen, as a Folk Father of our Odinist faith.
Osred has degrees (Honours of course) in English Literature, Political Science, Religious Studies, and Education from Deakin University and the University of Melbourne and has taught Religion courses at all levels. He has served as the Editor of the Australian Odinist Renewal Magazine for twenty years. We are delighted to announce that in celebration of this wonderful publication’s 20th birthday, 9 years of issues recently have been made available, free of charge, on the Odinic Rite Website.
Osred’s other fine Odinist works include The Call of our Ancient Nordic Religion by Rud Mills, Edited by Osred Jameson and his wonderful new book, The Heathen Anthology , which is reviewed in our Winter 2012-13 issue of FoxFire. See here. Since writing this, Osred has actually produced another truly excellent book called Heathen Song, and damned if he is not about to publish yet another, a collection of Stubba’s essays!
In addition to all this, Osred is brilliantly witty and he does play the bagpipes! He claims never to have played them at 5 Am. We hope this is so!
The author of the *very* fine article on “The Truth about Racism” is Sig Brit, an Englishman, married to a beautiful Scottish lass, and the proud papa of an adorable golden- haired, blue- eyed lad. Sig Brit is a lawyer, and has served in the British Army Parachute Regiment. In his spare time, he enjoys hiking, climbing and Nordic skiing, and yes, he plays bagpipes! He tells us he does this mostly to annoy people, but we suspect he is being modest.
I first came across Sig Brit on facebook where he was standing up for our native faith, very ably, against some people who were trying to take the Europeans out of native European religion. One of his comments was so brilliant and moving that I wanted to publish it! We are hoping to see many more thought-provoking pieces from Mr. Sig Brit.
The Odinist Gourmet (Sharon Fenner)
Our partly Irish Odinist Gourmet has taught Advanced Placement English Literature and Humanities at both secondary school and college levels. She is an event organizer and has directed a number of theatre productions and Renaissance Fairs. She has served as the acquisitions librarian of a major library.
The Odinist Gourmet is responsible for our glamorous, but healthy, Jól recipes: Almond Marzipan Chocolate Chip Cookies and the fabulous Bûche de Noël. Since then, she has contributed a couple more wonderful gourmet cookery articles, such as Hearty Watercress Swastika Soup, whose presence in our magazine, I am proud to say, actually motivated an old friend of mine from Cambridge to report me to the authorities for being a particularly evil “Nazi” whom he thought would be a “new Hitler”. Our Odinist gourmet recently has added an utterly delicious and very fashionable mini pie recipe, A Delicate Savory Turkey, White Wine, and Leek Tart, to her culinary collection here. In addition to these delightful recipes, she has penned a review of Osred Jameson’s book, The Heathen Anthology and a highly popular article on Blonde Bashing at the Box Office.
The Odinist Gourmet does not play the bagpipes, but she has been known to punish students who have been naughty with long “bagpipe music” detentions. She is a thoroughly frightening woman, but an excellent cook!
Johann Aldric contributed a wonderful original Odinist poem, entitled The Wyrd of the Dark Forest to our Winter 2012-13 issue of FoxFire. It has a rhythmic tempo and imaginative Heathen imagery. The poet tells us that it speaks of romance and spiritual war, of pagan unification, and of being beyond being “saved” by the misguided Christians who betray their own.
Johann enjoys Classical European music and reading about esoteric and spiritual topics having to do with mind, body and spirit. He seeks out vast vistas in nature, such as mountains ranges and fjords, and quiet places in the deep forest where he constructs sacred ritual spaces. He did not mention playing the bagpipes among his hobbies, but he did say he likes to sacrifice virgins!
Your editor, Seana Fenner, is also a contributor to our journal. She has done her graduate work in archaeology and iconography at the University of Oxford and her work experience includes having worked at the NASA Infrared Telescope on top of Mauna Kea, Hawai`i and as an archaeoastronomy lecturer for a round-the-world private jet tour.. When she gets a chance to, she is currently writing a textbook on archaeoastronomy.
Odinia’s articles here include the featured article in the Winter 2012-13 issue of Foxfire, about the new (and old) astronomical reckoning for the Twelve Nights of the Jól, as well as many other pro-European and Odinist religious articles such as SACRED TREES AND PAGAN PLANTS SURVIVE IN MEDIEVAL ENGLISH GARDENS.
Your editor has written quite a few Odinist articles which are intended to help restore the meaning behind our Heathen holidays, for instance, the three most recent Odinia blog posts, HAPPY FEAST OF ULLR!, FRÖHLICHE SOMMERSONNENWENDE….THE SOLAR JOURNEY OF THE SOUL…, and ODINIA ON FIRE…LÁ BEALTAINE SONA DAOIBH!
Odinia is also the author and narrator of the Odinistpodcast Channel Odinist Video Rede and Blóts, which have a great deal of original research about Odinism in them. They can be viewed both on Youtube and on this website.
