Practical Polytheism: A Review of Devotio Antinoo

devotio antinoo

There are few people in the world that I admire more than P. Sufenas Virius Lupus. He is intelligent, kind, patient, a clear and thoughtful writer, and has been a source of unflagging support in my darkest hours. I am not in the habit of placing Pagans on pedestals, but if Sufenas weren’t so tall [Read More...]

An Occult Memoir of New York: A Review of James Wasserman’s “In The Center Of The Fire”

in the center of the fire

My feelings regarding books sent to me for review are mixed. I don’t have a lot of free time for reading. Reading a book and then reviewing it requires a significant time and energy commitment on my part. So although I feel obligated to review the books sent to me for that purpose, most of [Read More...]

low-magick-its-all-in-your-head-you-just-have-no-idea-how-big-your-head-is

I read a lot of news and opinion, and reading for leisure hasn’t been a big priority in the past couple of years. I have had a strange week though, and it afforded me some offline downtime. So I read two books, one a recent Kindle purchase, and the other a book that I’d had [Read More...]

Book Review: Raven Grimassi’s Old World Witchcraft

This book is bold, and not at all what I expected. Although he’s been one of the author’s on my “to-read” list for years, I actually met Raven Grimassi before I read one of his books. At the urging of one of my teachers, I sought out a copy of The Book of Ways I [Read More...]

Forgotten Goddesses: A Coloring Book Review

I get a lot of things to review, and I don’t have time to review all of them. Sometimes I know someone else who can review a book, but more often it goes onto the pile of books awaiting my fantasy beach vacation. You know, the kind of vacation where you sit in a chair [Read More...]

Book Review: A Pagan Ritual Prayer Book by Ceisiwr Serith

I used to own A Book of Pagan Prayer by Ceisiwr Serith, so I was excited to receive a copy of his A Pagan Ritual Prayer Book to review from Weiser. To begin with it’s a good size for a prayer book. Small enough to fit easily in a purse or bag with a cover [Read More...]

{Aleister Crowley. Diary of a Drug Fiends. Weiser Books 2010. 368 pages. $18.95} Review by Star Foster Why on earth should you read this book? I know I asked myself that question.

{Ocha’ni Lele. Teachings of the Santeria Gods. Destiny books 2010. 269 pages. $16.95} Reviewed by Star Foster I love a good story. A good story has a mystery, a moral, a familiarity or a sense of the fantastic. A good story satisfies you down to your bones. Ocha’ni Lele’s book Teachings of the Santeria Gods [Read More...]

Book Review: Exploring the Northern Tradition by Galina Krasskova

A good, solid, human and engaging introductory text to a religion, particularly a minority religion, is worth its weight in gold. Crafting an introduction to a religious practice, mythos, cosmology and values is a bit like walking a tightrope: too far to one side creates a text that is inaccessibly esoteric and too far to [Read More...]
