As mentioned in Episode 24, there are a number of good books and authors available out there. Here are some of my favorite picks:
Scott Cunningham --All titles. Excellent for beginners in Wicca who have a solitary practice although I recommend the encylopedia series for any pagan practice. Some of these titles include: Wicca for the Solitary Practitioner, Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Magickal Herbs, The Complete Book of Incense, Oils, and Brews, etc.
Margot Adler -- Drawing Down the Moon. An indepth look and history of the modern pagan movement and a classic.
Marian Green -- A Witch Alone. An excellent book for a beginner in Wicca but usefult to anyone with a solitary practice in the Craft.
Morgan Daimler --The Morrigan, Fairy Witchcraft, Brighid, The Treasures of the Tuatha De Danann An excellent resource for Celtic mythology and pagan practice.
Melusine Draco -- Witchcraft and...(series). A series of books for solitary practitioners of witchcraft rather than Wicca. Highly recommended.
Arin Murphy Hiscock --The Green Witch, The House Witch. The Way of the Hedge Witch. Handbooks for those who want to practice a solitary path in Witchcraft without Wicca influences. Highly recommended.
Laurie Cabot --All titles written by The Official Witch of Salem, classic book on magick and the Craft. Wiccan.
Dorothy Morrison --EveryDay Magic. Utterly Wicked: Curses, Hexes & Other Unsavory Notions, Yule, Bud Blossom and Leaf. Wiccan practice.
Christopher Penzcak--Temple Series (Inner Temple. Outer Temple) Wiccan practice for beginners.
Ellen Dugan --Garden Witches Herbal, Cottage Witchery, Natural Witchery, Book of Witchery, Practical Protection Magick
Anna Franklin --The Hearth Witches Compendium. This is filled with information on home, garden, beauty, correspondances, recipes and more. Highly recommended.
Laura Tempest Zakroff --Sigil Witchery We reviewed this book. Recommended.
Diane Alquist --Moon Spells A great book with information on moon phases, how to perform moon magick, spells, etc.
Judika Illes --Encylopedia Series (spells, spirits, witchcraft), Magick When You Need It _(spells)
Llewellyns Sabbat Series - The books are listed by the Sabbat (ie: Yule, Ostara, Samhain) and include information about the holiday, correspondances, traditions, ritual and spell suggestions, etc.
Starr Casas-- _Old Style Conjure . A beginners book in Hoo Doo magick.
Storm Faerywolf--Betwixt and Between (beginner book in Fairy tradition witchcraft), Forbidden Mysteries of Fairy Witchcraft (intermediate book in Fairy witchcraft. Reviewed on podcast. Recommended after first book is read).
Jason Mankey--The Witch's Tool's Series. Excellent books for beginners in solitary Wicca.
Ronald Hutton --Triumph of the Moon, The Witch (Both are good for historical and anthropological perspective.)
