Blog splat

I am taking a break from blogging for the next eight to ten days because I leave on Wednesday for the intellectual carnival that is the American Academy of Religion-Society of Biblical Literature combined annual meeting.

It's in Philadelphia this year. Our last meeting there was in 1995, and I spent much of the time walking the steets looking for sites and building associated with the career of Charles Leland, author of Aradia: Or the Gospel of the Witches and Etruscan Roman Remains, among other things.

This year should be different: We have the first official Pagan Studies sessions, plus I will be meeting with my publisher to determine such weighty matters as what comes after the colon in the book title now tentatively known as Her Hidden Children: Paganism and Nature Religion in America. They are telling me that the publication date is March 2006 and that the paperback will be $19.95. As I know more, I will post it.

I am not bothering to take a laptop computer this year, so I will be summarizing our sessions when I get home.

Meanwhile, there is this: one of today's Google searches that sent a visitor to this blog: "Known Hookers With Cops Pueblo." Just another reason why smart searchers always go to the Advanced Search Page.

As a grad student, I'm really glad to see Pagan Studies getting off the ground right as I'm getting into a position to participate! (grin)

See you in Philly.

Chas, do you have a list of the Leland sites available?

The key word is available. I could probably assemble it fairly easily once I return from Philadelphia. Email me (see main blog page) and I can get it to you.
