I am looking for the following books, and am willing to barter brand new copies of my own books, my artwork, and/or my totem card readings for any/all:

Animism by Graham Harvey
Becoming Animal by David Abram
Dark Green Religion by Bron Taylor

Any condition other than completely destroyed will be fine, which means things like cover damage, highlighting/writing/etc. are okay, just so long as all the pages are there and it's readable all the way through. All these are going for anywhere from $15-$30 for the cheapest ones on Amazon, and even more at Powell's, so please keep this in mind when estimating value.

Thanks :)

Please Help This Library Out! [Apr. 21st, 2011|11:23 pm]
Pagan Books

This library system has been hit hard by budget cuts this past year and needs all the help they can get.  They have been very supportive of buying pagan, wiccan, and vampirism related materials in the past so it's nice to be able to return the favor!  *PLEASE* take a moment to help this local library win 1,600 'For Dummies' books!  All you have to do is "LIKE" the following fan page and encourage your friends to do the same (just takes a second of your time).  They have 10 days left to maintain their lead (April 30, 2011 deadline).  Thanks so much for helping to support libraries in the wake of recent budget shortfalls!  Please "SHARE" this link with others!


Thank you!

Many of the books in this collection are currently in-print works of living authors. Please pass the word far and wide and get this removed from Ebay and other possible websites.

Oh, here's something for me to post since I'm not reviewing! :D [Nov. 18th, 2010|05:14 pm]

I carry the full line of esoteric nonfiction texts from Immanion Press/Megalithica Books, a small press specializing in niche topic, intermediate to advanced, or otherwise unusual, pagan and occult books. I am holding a 25% off sale on a variety of titles (not just the ones pictured above!) for as long as supplies last--more information here. Sale lasts only as long as quantities last, and some of these are out of print titles. Please pass this on to anyone you think may be interested--thanks :)

MOD NOTE: This community (however quiet) is NOT for promoting random communities and forums and websites, no matter how interesting. It is specifically for the discussion (and, yes, promotion) of pagan and occult books, book reviews, authors.

Thanks :) I promise that whenever I get off hiatus and back to reviewing (though it may be a while yet thanks to grad school) that I'll be posting reviews here again!

Reposting call for submissions [Oct. 3rd, 2010|10:15 am]
Pagan Books

I'm reposting this -- I need just a few more pieces to complete the anthology.


Many Pagans compare the "coming out of the broom closet" process of telling family and friends that they're Pagan to "coming out" as gay/lesbian/bixexual/transgender.

But is it really the same? And who better to ask than the folk who have chosen -- or chosen not -- to do both?

I am editing an anthology  titled Closet With Two Doors, and I am looking for GLBT Pagan contributors. I am looking for personal musings, true-life accounts, opinion pieces, poems, rituals -- anything but obvious fiction that illustrates the author's thoughts, experiences and feelings about coming out as queer and as Pagan -- or choosing to come out as one but not the other.

I have signed a contract with Immanion Press, so not only do we have a publisher, but we have a publisher that I am sure will be comfortable with the subject and not try to "clean up for the mainstream Pagan community" anything you have to say.

Here are some questions to get you started. You do not need to necessarily answer every question in your piece.

When and how did you know you were gay? When and how did you know you were Pagan? Did any one experience affirm both aspects?
Are you out of the closet? Are you out of the broom closet? Why or why not? Are you out of one closet but not the other? Why or why not?
Did your family and friends react differently to one "outing" than the other? Why or why not?
Do your glbt friends know you're Pagan? Why or why not?
How hard (or how easy) has it been for you to find a life partner because you're glbt and Pagan?

Essays should be at least 2,000 words and at most 4,000 words in length. Longer essays will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Poems and rituals may vary. Please do not send more than three poems. All writers -- published and unpublished -- are invited to submit pieces for consideration.Published contributors will receive a complimentary copy of the anthology.

Deadline: December 1, but sooner is definitely better!

Please send your submission as a Word attachment to bronwenforbes@yahoo.com with the word  "submission" somewhere in the subject line.  Please run your piece through spell check and grammar check before hitting the 'send' button, and choose an easy-to-read font and font size (i.e. Times New Roman 12).

If you have any questions, please email me at bronwenforbes@yahoo.com

Blurb for Book Just Out!!! [Sep. 14th, 2010|05:19 pm]
Pagan Books

[mood |ecstaticecstatic]

I edited this book and provided 3 essays, plus poetry and artwork. :)

To Fly By Night-The Craft of the Hedgewitch

Hedgewitch Craft takes its name from the practice of travelling beyond the boundaries, of going past the "hedgerows" that divide what is known from what is unknown. Hedgewitches utilize diverse techniques to undertake the night-flight into strange and sometimes dangerous places in order to gain spirit-allies, magickal abilities and knowledge, to heal and to commune with the Gods and the ancestors.

From the ancient to the modern, from the philosophical and historical to the practical and mystical, these essays span a wide variety of paths and approaches. To Fly By Night features works by: Robin Artisson, Christopher Crittenden, Veronica Cummer, Nicholaj de Mattos Frisvold, Eric de Vries, Rev. Jack Green, Raven Grimassi, Beth Hansen-Buth, Juniper, Sylva Markson, Jenne Micale, Papa Toad Bone, John Pwyll, Elige Stewart, and Kari Tauring
