    I've subconciously avoided Aleister Crowley so far...I can't help it. I have heard some rather bad things about him. I picked up some sort of book on the "occult" which was printed somewhere in the 50s-60s, and it was very...anti Crowley.
    Anyhow, I know it was biased, it was clearly biased, but I was a little spooked.
    I guess I outta give him a try and not prejudge.
    Nice list people.

    I will add:
    Tree Wisdom by Jacqueline Paterson
    Glamoury by Steve Blamires
    "Warriorship is a profession of courage, a calling to valor - not just on the battlefield, but in all of life’s conflicts."
    "If there is any hope for the future, it surely must rest upon the ability to stare unflinchingly into the heart of darkness."
    "The gentleman desires to be halting in speech but quick in action."
    "Do right, fear no man."
    "Men whose acts are at variance with their words command no respect, and what they say has but little weight."
    "Lying is done with words and also with silence."
    "If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow."
    "A man does not extricate himself from difficulty at the expense of his associates."
    "If the enemy leaves a door open, you must rush in."
    "I have a high art, I hurt with cruelty those who would damage me."
    "If he is willing to kill, then he must be prepared to die. It is only right."

    Re: Spiral Dance

    Glad I listened to all you lovely people! I've just got the last copy of The Spiral Dance from my nearest Pagan bookstore (nearly knocked the shelf down trying to get at it :D)
    Anyway, it's brilliant, so I love you all!!!
    (I'm hyper today, case anyone hasn't noticed)

    Starhawk is awesome! I had her book sitting around for months before I picked it up, and I'm sorry I waited so long. It really is as good as everyone always says it is. :D:D *pins on her 'The Spiral Dance Rocks My Socks' button*

    I Recommend:

    Herbal Rituals by Judith Berger for... well... herbs and herbal rituals. :D

    Uncle Aleister

    Uncle Al is not for everybody. He did some things that I certainly would never do, and he also had a tendency to tell whoppers about himself because he was fond of being notorious, a character trait that backfired on him. But that being said, he pioneered a lot of magickal work, and he could be a very deep and spiritual man.

    His work is dense though and requires a lot of thought. I would suggest "Magick Without Tears" to start with, bearing in mind that there are passages in it written simply to shock his audience.

    Tree wisdom is great. It talks about the different kinds of common trees (only some of them are only found in Europe cause it is written by a brit I think)....what they look like, their magickal properties, lore, rituals, growing information....but only involving trees. It's really amazing. That's why I recommended it.

    Side Note: I think you'd like it a lot Wildchild. You like greenery. The only thing is...some common US trees aren't listed because it's centered on European trees...though you will find some of the ones she listed!
