    I am the religious right. Just not the religion most people expect.

    i give both thumbs up to
    Gods Behaving Badly-honestly, can you imagine Apollo as a talkshow host?

    and

    Divine Misfortune-that one is hilarious! it involes a possibly make-believe? racoon luck deity named Luca. there is a Deity profile (similar to a dating service or something) for each God, stating their personality, what they will do for you and what you have to do for them in return etc. etc. i mean, can you imagine having Quetzicoatl crashing out on your couch and playing pictionary while telling you to call him Quick? or going to a valhalla brawl in a stadium with Valkyries dressed in slinky outfits and selling mead like they would at a football game or something. this book is a laugh and a half i Must buy it!


    also for those who like a good mystery

    The Anubis Murders

    I just found out about this book from a pagan podcast I listen to and so far I'm really liking it. Although I'm only a hundred and fifty pages in I'm enjoying Juniper's point of view a lot.

    Just read a great blog/article about this yesterday. About how the author actually depicts pagans in a positive light. Looks like a great series. There is a second series that follows this one as well. The Change (Emberverse II). Here is a list of the books.

    Dies the Fire (Emberverse I)
    Dies the Fire
    The Protector's War
    A Meeting at Corvallis

    The Change (Emberverse II)
    The Sunrise Lands
    The Scourge of God
    The Sword of the Lady
    The High King of Montival
    The Tears of The Sun - to be published 2011(?)
    The Given Sacrifice - to be published 2012

    Short fiction

    If you like shorter Pagan fiction, Waxing and Waning has a pretty good collection of short stores and poems from various authors (yes, it's one of my sites).

    For books, I loved The Passion of Mary Magdalen by Elizabeth Cunningham. Sure it was a Biblical story, but portraying Mary Magdalen as a red-haired Celt who becomes a sacred whore for Isis is a wonderful Pagan variation. I think she has 3 books, this is the only one I've read so far.
