CRAFT READING LIST

Other Author

(Note from Daven: Obviously this goes with the Bibliography, as a companion piece.  I have many of these books, but not all of them.  Read at your own risk.  LOL)

*** Marks especially good books. Read these FIRST!! All are available through interlibrary loan. Generally anything by Farrar, Valiente, Starhawk, Buckland, or Gardner is excellent. Beware of the paperback books put out in the late 60’s-early 70’s. While there is some useful information in some of them such as excellent tables of correspondence, most of them are full of garbage, misinformation, and garbled bits of ceremonial magick, folklore, and wishful thinking. Many of them have some very negative things. Watch out for Paul Huson. Some of his stuff is excellent, some is not. Keep in mind, this is simply a listing of the books that we have found useful, or that friends have suggested were useful to them. Question everything.

    Glad to see “Mama Rowan’s Reading LIst from Hell” on here and hope it helps some folks. Just curious as to why my name is no longer attached to it.

      Hmmmm, not really sure. I’m pretty positive when I say that I got this list from AOL many years ago, and it has been reposted as I got it.

      If you will email me I will work to make sure I can get you the credit you deserve on this matter. Or I can pull the portions tha tare yours with no hard feelings. Your choice.

      Glad to know that the proper credit is not on here. Thank you for letting me know.
