I have a question for everyone I had been one of the few people which were eagerly expecting this book to come a awhile ago. What I wanted to know is if anyone had seen it. As far as I now citadel press went out of business and canceld it's release date. But when I went to the book store last week I saw 2 copies there. Of course I grabed both..hehe I gave one to my mother who also wanted it badly. anyways I haven't seen it anywhere else before or after anytime I ask the booksellers they say it isn't in print. What does everyone think? BTW the book is great kudos to telesco!!

what other books do people recommend for more "advanced" students, ie those that have been practicing for a couple of years and are sick to death of Wicca 101s...

Thankyouthankyouthankyou!!
Great question! There's only so many different points of view you can go through in the whole 'intro' deal before you get bored mindless.
*hopes for lots of answers*

goodness yes, there are so many Wicca 101 books on the shelf filled with fluffy pink spells.
To really get your teeth into the subject, read anything by the Ferrars (Stewart and Janet), like the Witches Bible, the God or the Witches, the Goddess of the witches, what witches do.

There are some really good books which I would recomend to anyone wanting to get more serious...

Ravenwolfs Triology
to ride a silver broom stick- basically 101
to stir a magick cauldron- Intermedate lvl
to light a sacred Flame- More advanced

And Ann Mouras triology
Green withcraft 1,2,& 3 specifically 2.

If you read these I would recomend reading the basics first to get to understand the authors:)

I'll second the recommendation for "A Witches' Bible" by Janet and Stewart Farrar, although I read that very early on. I also like Vivianne Crowley's "Wicca: The Old Religion in the New Millenium" (although both are strongly Alexandrian - not my trad.) I'd suggest a little history: Margot Adler's "Drawing Down the Moon", Hutton's "Triumph of the Moon" is supposedly good although inaccurate in the bits where he refers to Australian pagans. Starhawk's "Dreaming the Dark" is good for power relationships, group dynamics and the relationship spirituality has with political activism.

edited to add: for those who get a bit...offended about this sort of thing, "A Witches Bible" includes nude photos of the Farrars in their ritual get up. Basically don't leave it around where your Gran might find it ;)
