This important book by debut author Sonja Sadovsky shines new light on how three captivating minds shaped the course of history. The fantasy novels of Dion Fortune, Marion Zimmer Bradley, and Diana L. Paxson influenced the image of the priestess in Neopagan and Goddess-centered spirituality throughout the world. The Priestess & the Pen shows how their work changed the way women are depicted in literature, created space for women to reclaim their power, and energized the women’s equality movement.
