I am currently reading "Calculating God" by Robert J Sawyer, and recently re-read the excellent "The Years of Rice and Salt" by Kim Stanley Robinson. I also want to get the rest of the Neanderthals series by Robert J Sawyer.

I might re-read "The Handmaid's Tale" and "American Gods".

I shall also read a few of the books on my Goodreads "Want to Read" list.

Very sad news. I first met Fred in the 1990s and I have many happy memories of him. I also have all of his books. We had great conversations about Wicca and other things and he told me stories about the early days of Wicca. Usually this was around the campfire. I have lit a candle for him. I was also on several mailing lists with him (in the era before Facebook)

More of Yvonne's books…
“The patriarchal/kyriarchal/hegemonic culture seeks to regulate and control the body – especially women’s bodies, and especially black women’s bodies – because women, especially black women, are constructed as the Other, the site of resistance to the kyriarchy. Because our existence provokes fear of the Other, fear of wildness, fear of sexuality, fear of letting go – our bodies and our hair (traditionally hair is a source of magical power) must be controlled, groomed, reduced, covered, suppressed.”
Yvonne Aburrow

“Paganism is more of an attitude of mind than a fixed creed. It is always tempting to ask, “what do Pagans believe?” but a better question is “what do Pagans do?”
Yvonne Aburrow

“Let my worship be within the heart that rejoices,
for behold, all acts of love and pleasure are my rituals.
Therefore, let there be beauty and strength,
power and compassion, honor and humility,
mirth and reverence within you.”
Doreen Valiente, Charge of the Goddess: The Mother of Modern Witchcraft

“Hope can be a powerful force. Maybe there's no actual magic in it, but when you know what you hope for most and hold it like a light within you, you can make things happen, almost like magic.”
Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke & Bone

“A book, too, can be a star, a living fire to lighten the darkness, leading out into the expanding universe.”
Madeleine L'Engle

“you have to be careful with the stories you tell. And you have to watch out for the stories that you are told.”
Thomas King, The Truth About Stories: A Native Narrative

“Or, if you want the positive but somewhat callous view, you might wish to describe Christianity as the gateway drug to supply-side capitalism”
Thomas King, The Inconvenient Indian: A Curious Account of Native People in North America
