Book Posts in the Works

I am spread a little thin these days, and the below-zero (F.) weather the last few days threw some complications my way too.

Two book reviews are in the works. Here are the previews:

Stewart Farrar: Writer On A Broomstick, The Biography of Stewart Farrar by Elizabeth Guerra. Workmanlike biography of one of the key Wiccan figures of the late 20th century.

Living With Honour: A Pagan Ethics by Emma Restall Orr, noted British Druid. I am part-way through it and thus far under-whelmed, but I will complete it and write a proper review.

• Meanwhile, if you are a university library (or rich), consider the Handbook of Contemporary Paganism, edited by Jim Lewis and Murph Pizza. Yes, that's the price. If you thought that American reference books were expensive, consider the Dutch!

well I'm guessing none of us will be getting contributors copies of that one. We had to do our own indexing too. And our own editing, as far as I can tell.

Underwhelmed by ERO's "Living with Honour"? Me too. It's just a kind of "feel good" book about ethics. What about Brendan Myers' book "The Other Side of Virtue"? A much better book by every account. Are you planning to read/review that one some day?

Below-zero, eh? Come on down to Florida - it's great here! :)

I read the proposal for Brendan Myers' book, so I really should get the completed work. It looked promising.
