A New Book—A New Job

My New Book: The Magical Life of Scott Cunningham On leap day, February 29, 1980, needing a room to rent, I moved into a two-bedroom apartment with a person I barely knew. His name was Scott Cunningham. At the time, Scott had been writing novels and was beginning his magical writing career. As I look […]

Deep Thoughts from a Book Pirate

On Thursday I blogged about book piracy, prompted in part by a particularly egregious offender. The website in question had 32 of our books and tons of other publishers’ books available for download, in full, as well as pages upon pages of spells, rituals, poems, songs, recipes, and more, culled from scores of books, without […]

Myths About Pirated Books

Today I got five emails from authors all alerting me to a website that had 32 of our books and an equal number of other publishers’ books on it, scanned in and uploaded as PDFs for anyone to freely download. If it sounds like harmless sharing to you, please read this post and educate yourself […]

The Three Experiences of Initiation

Initiation is one of the most valuable experiences in any person’s life. Many religions have initiatory rituals such as Confirmation, Baptism, Bar Mitzvah, and so forth. Generally, initiations are one of two types: initiation into a tradition and initiation into a group. For example, a person might be Baptized into the Christian tradition, but not […]

Setting the Record Straight

Thank You, S.F. Bay! First, I would like to thank everyone who showed up for my workshops at Ancient Ways in Oakland, CA, this last weekend.

At times like these I really feel like being Pagan is no big deal; it’s just another spiritual path that […]

What will you be reading in 2011?

What are you looking for in 2011? What books do you think will help your progress, or are you pursuing an interest that does not lend itself to book learning? Are you shifting gears, deciding to read more romance novels, or buckling down to hit the textbooks?

I am nothing like Christine O’Donnell

I thought I could let the whole Christine O’Donnell dabble-gate blow over without comment. But then the candidate from Delaware released a new political ad in which she says, “I am not a witch. I’m nothing you’ve heard. I’m you.” Oh, dear Christine, you are so not me. Unlike you, I believe in evolution, I […]

“And So, It Begins…”

The title of this post comes from a statement by Ambassador Kosh from the TV show, Babylon 5. It was one of the best science fiction shows ever (well, the first 4 seasons were) dealing with issues of the nature of good and evil, order and chaos, and the eternal repetition and cycles of the […]
