Jay Blevins | 3 comments Hi,

I just joined the group. I've read the Stonewylde books but none of the others in the list. Any recommendations on one to start with?

Thanks,
Jay

Ancestral Gaidheal (gaidheal) My favourite is " The Moon Garden " by Wendy Mewes.

Jay Blevins | 3 comments Thanks! I just finished it. A fun read.

Ancestral Gaidheal (gaidheal) I'm currently reading, and enjoying " Magician's Law " by Michael Scott.

Sidhe Prankster (sidheprankster) | 9 comments Three words: Charles de Lint.

I know people who know me think I sound like a broken record when I recommend his books, but they're great magical realism tales that are based in mythology and involve Pagan and fey characters.

Mawgojzeta I like Charles de Lint.


message 9: by Ancestral (new)

Ancestral Gaidheal (gaidheal) I am currently enjoying " The Mark Of A Druid " by Rhonda R. Carpenter. However, I must admit that I am not reading it, but, rather, listening to the podcast, wherein Rhonda R. Carpenter read the book.

I just know I am going to have to buy a hard copy when I get to the end of the podcasts.

Well met, then! It's always nice to meet another de Lint fan... His work doesn't get as much attention as it deserves.

I've heard some great things about that book. In fact I keep meaning to find a copy. Is it as good as I have been told?

Ancestral Gaidheal (gaidheal) The audio version is amazing, apart from the author's strange way of pausing. The storyline just rolls on at a fast pace, back and forth in time. Am definitely going to get a hard copy and read it.

Mawgojzeta I just read a book of poetry by Elizabeth Cunningham. She is a pagan fiction and poetry writer. I had never heard of her before, but very much enjoyed both her poetry book Small Bird and her Rumpelstiltskin retelling called How to Spin Gold: A Woman's Tale.

Correction: Peni actually had posted her name in one of the other topics, I am guessing that is how Cunningham ended up on my TBR list.

Sidhe Prankster (sidheprankster) | 9 comments Does anyone know if M. R. Sellers' Rowan Gant novels are good? I love mysteries, and a Pagan mystery series sounds fantastic, but, as I can't find these books at the library, I'd like to know a little more before I begin buying them.

Mawgojzeta Sidhe: Ask your librarian about doing an ILL. I get the majority of my books that way. In fact, I get so many that way, they finally gave me my own login and password to get into that system for our area.

The first three in the Rowan Gant series were very good, but I didn't care much for the direction the series went after those.

I may have to do that. I get most of my study material on Celtic lore that way.

Just saw this post. It looks interesting. Did you decide to read it? If yes, what did you think?


message 19: by Sidhe (new)

Sidhe Prankster (sidheprankster) | 9 comments I'm afraid it's still on my To Read list... So many books, so little time. :)


message 20: by Julie (new)

Julie | 4 comments I think it would be bad manners to suggest my own novel, so I'll just mention that I loved Katherine Kurtz's Lammas Night.


message 21: by Ancestral (new)

Ancestral Gaidheal (gaidheal) I truly enjoyed Sarah Addison Allen's " Garden Spells " and will be looking for more of her books in the future.

Stephen Pearl (stephenp11) | 10 comments If I may be totally self serving here I suggest The Hollow Curse by Stephen B. Pearl, a centuries spanning tale of love and obsession avalable in e-book from Club Lighthouse Publishing. It deals with the restoration of the Pagan principles of projective and receptive magic. As well the two leads in their curient incarnation are on a Druidic path. The book touches on several incarnations so in others they are more wiccan. You can read the first chapter for free at www.stephenpearl.com
The book was writen by a card carrying Pagan,I think I still have the card the C.E.S. sent me tucked somwhere in my wallet. :-)

Sammie Spencer (SammieSpencer) | 1 comments Hi there! My name is Sammie Spencer and I'm the author of Eagleton Coven: Amaretto Flame. The book is a fiction, paranormal romance, with strong pagan and wiccan ties. These are present in the described beliefs and practices of the coven. I wanted to recommend it to the group - I'd love to get some feedback from fellow pagans. Thanks so much!
