Rocking the Goddess:
Campus Wicca for the Student Practitioner
by Anthony Paige
This one really surprised me by being such an excellent read: it’s almost Drawing Down the Moon for the college student. The author has interviewed college students practicing Wicca, professors of religious studies, and even the spooked parent of a Wiccan college student. But he doesn’t present this in a dry, please-recite-to-me-your-thoughts-on-Wicca style, instead, he’s simply relating anecdotes, conversation, and stories about real people, not Big Name Pagans.
Wiccan Wisdom Keepers
by Sally Griffin
Wiccan Wisdom Keepers by Sally Griffin is a beautiful book packed with glossy pages and full-color pictures, worthwhile for that alone. However, as the saying goes, you can’t judge a book by its cover — or in this case, photographs. The true value of Griffin’s book lies in the text itself.

Dark Moon Mysteries:
Wisdom, Power and Magic of the Shadow World
by Timothy Roderick
I have always worked closely with the Crone. In fact, my spirit name is a direct reflection of this. So it’s not surprising that one day, when I was browsing at a local bookstore, the title of this book leapt out. I pulled the book from the shelf and sat down, thumbing through the pages. Within minutes I knew I had to add it to my library.
The Beliefs, Rites, and Rituals of the Wiccan Religion
by Lady Sabrina
New Page Books
When I was thirteen, living through an eternal hormone-induced place of damnation, I found my mother’s copy of The Spiral Dance. She had it because she was a feminist; I read it because the idea of being a “witch” sounded cool. I became a witch because Starhawk showed me a place I remembered, a way of being that felt right.
A Witch Like Me
by Sirona Knight

This latest offering by Sirona Knight (creator of The Shapeshifter Tarot) is a compilation of responses to a questionnaire given to 14 of today’s “leading Wiccan authors.” The subjects include the likes of Knight herself (she’s humble, at least), Raymond Buckland, Z. Budapest and Silver Ravenwolf. The questionnaires ask the subjects to describe their paths, how they came to be where they are, childhood experiences, and so forth.
