  1. I was reading your article Advice for Beginners on Wiccan, Pagan & Witchcraft Paths and it provided a link for “Books I recommend for Beginners” . I took me to this location but I don’t see any list. Thanks.

    1. I am sorry you are not able to find the book list. Sometimes the list needs a moment to load. There should be two places it shows up on all my blog site pages.
      Below is the list. I hope it is visible to you now. Thank you for letting me know about the issue!

        1. While you are waiting for me to get my codes to work, here is a list of the authors I most enjoy. You can look them up to see the many books they have written. They are: Scott Cunningham, Kala Trobe, Starhawk, and Christopher Penczak.

  2. “The Spiral Dance” is coming up on its 40th year in print. That says something in the Pagan world.
