Pagan Fiction

Recommended Fiction for Pagans

It's hard to draw a clear line between what is pagan-themed and what isn't... This list, therefore, is obviously rather selective and reflects my personal bias. I should also note that I add books as I read them, so some things on this list are books I haven't read in years, and my opinions may change when I reread them.

Pagan-Themed and Mythological Fiction

Kingsley Amis, The Green Man
    A rather unpleasant "supernatural" tale of an unhappy alcoholic Englishman in the 70's who uncovers the ghost of a 17th-century magician (who calls up the Green Man, a pretty creepy figure in this telling).

Kim Antieau, The Gaia Websters
    This book has some interesting ideas. It is set in a future America where industrial civilization has basically destroyed itself, and people live in small communities in harmony with the earth. The main character is a healer who suddenly encouters a strange illness in her community... The writing is a little uneven at times but I liked the story.

-------, Jigsaw Woman
    A story about a woman who is created from the bodies of three different women... She goes on a journey through the lives of these women, as well as their various past lives, to better understand herself. An imaginative critique of patriarchal violence, with ancient-modern Goddesses, as well as a matriarchal Goddess-worshipping utopia from the past. I liked this book a lot.

Meg Elizabeth Atkins, By the North Door
    A strange 1970's novel about a suburban housewife who gets married and discovers witchcraft and ceremonial magic in her new family. I wasn't sure exactly what the point of the book was. I found the main character somewhat irritating, and other characters seemed to function mainly to advance the plot.

Gael Baudino, Gossamer Axe
    This is in many ways a story about healing. Christa grew up in ancient Ireland and then spent centuries fighting the Sidh for her lover Judith. Now she's been around for quite a while and plans to fight the Sidh with heavy metal. Be prepared for the hairspray and other 80's trappings! It's a good story, although I found that the occasional preachiness around feminist issues got a bit annoying. Christa practices the same rituals and has the same conception of the Goddess that many neo-pagans do.

Jessica Berens, Queen of the Witches
    A novel about two (contemporary) witches who are highly placed in the British pagan hierarchy; they are vying for the position of "Queen of the Witches," who rules over the "Coven of All Covens." There's a lot of tongue-in-cheek humor which makes fun of neo-paganism while still having respect for it. Note: this book is British and probably difficult to find in the U.S.

Francesca Lia Block, Witch Baby
    Well, okay, this has very little Actual Pagan Content. It's about a witchy little girl with an unusual family. But I wanted to put a book by Francesca Lia Block on this list because I think her writing is magical :)

Marion Zimmer Bradley, The Forest House
    This is a story about a young priestess of the ancient religion which is being threatened by the Roman invaders; she falls in love with a Roman. It didn't leave much of an impression on me.

Dan Brown, The DaVinci Code
    I'm sure you've heard of it by now! A suspense novel about a symbologist and a cryptologist trying to find the Holy Grail and recover the divine feminine. It's not "literature," nor is it good history, but it's an extremely entertaining page-turner with lots of pagan-related subject matter.

Emma Bull, Bone Dance
    This is an excellent film-noir-style futuristic novel involving voudou-related things - I'd be spoiling the plot if I tried to explain. You'll just have to read it for yourself.

Susan Cooper, The Dark is Rising (series)
    This is a series of five books - wonderful contemporary fantasy about an age-old struggle between the Light and the Dark, using British/Celtic myth and folklore. These books are imaginative and beautifully written. I can't say enough good things about them.

---------- Seaward
    This story has many pagan/mythological elements, although I wouldn't exactly call it a pagan book. It's about two young people who are on a quest in a mythological place that is out of time; they are often used as pawns by two opposing forces (though as in Cooper's earlier series, there's no question about which is good). A very beautiful story.

Aleister Crowley, Moonchild
    This novel by the famous early 20th-century magician has a number of flaws. It clearly betrays the author's rampant and egregious sexism and misogyny; it wanders quite a bit, with random monologues on various and sundry topics; it gives the goddess Hecate an undeservedly bad name; and it has an irritating, bizarre ending. Still, I found it interesting for the historical value, and his satirical descriptions of the Black Lodge magicians (which I'm sure are based on historical figures) are very funny. In conclusion: read it, but don't expect to get helpful magical material out of it, and don't take it too seriously.

Elizabeth Cunningham, The Return of the Goddess: A Divine Comedy
    In this book, the wife of an Episcopalian rector in a small Hudson Valley town awakens to the limitations of the Church and the possibilities of Witchcraft and Goddess worship. I found some of the characters to be a little two-dimensional, and I didn't find the plot hard to predict. Then again, I couldn't help but be moved by the beautiful, sensual descriptions of nature-centered spirituality. Definitely worth a read - I think most Pagans will enjoy this one.

Charles de Lint, Greenmantle
    Some of the author's urban fantasy books are very good, for example Memory and Dream; unfortunately, others, like this one, are rather mediocre. I read this book for the pagan theme which runs through it (nature, a Horned God, that sort of thing) but found the answers to be too easy, and the characters got a bit boring. So read it if you get the chance, but don't go out of your way.

Diane Duane, The Door Into Fire
    This is an out-of-print fantasy book (with several sequels) that takes place in a world where bisexuality is the norm and the gods worshipped are particularly pagan-related. Enjoyable sword-and-sorcery novel.

Rosemary Edghill, Speak Daggers to Her
    This tells the story of Bast, a contemporary pagan (who is very down-to-earth and notes the quirks of her fellow pagans with dry humor). This book is a mystery/thriller about her investigation into the death of one of her friends; it is definitely worth reading, and Bast is sensible and funny, though her flippancy can get annoying.

Dion Fortune, The Sea Priestess
    Dion Fortune was a well-known mid-20th-century practitioner of occult mystery traditions, although within a Christian context. This novel tells the story of a man who comes into contact with the Divine Feminine.

Monica Furlong, Wise Child
    This book, set in a Scottish village, tells about a girl who is training to be a doran, which is (more or less) someone who lives in harmony with nature and knows magic, essentially. It's a lovely book, and I think it serves as a vision of what paganism is about. (The same remarks apply to its prequel, Juniper.)

Ellen Galford, The Fires of Bride
    A fun story revolving around a woman living on a Scottish island, as well as pagan lesbian nuns from long ago. Kind of lacked focus, but enjoyable.

Robert Graves, Watch the North Wind Rise.
    A man from the present (well, actually, from the 40's, when Graves was writing) finds himself in New Crete, a future civilization which has returned to the worship of the Triple Goddess, as well as a caste-based social structure. This society has become somewhat stagnant, and so the main character has been sent by the Goddess to shake things up. An interesting book, if a bit strange...

Liz Greene, Dreamer of the Vine
    This is the story of Nostradamus, so it deals with medieval magic, Qabbalism, and astrology. I guess it was a well-written book, but I found it kind of dark and depressing.

Elizabeth Hand, Waking the Moon
    This book is unpleasant and sort of odd. Or rather, the writing is beautiful, but the message is odd. It's kind of about the modern Goddess revival, in terms of the light/order/male vs. dark/chaos/female dichotomy. But the author seems to be on the side of the men. But kind of not. I finished this and felt very, very confused. On the positive side, it is poetically written and deals with interesting issues of gender, power, and divinity.

Robert Heinlein. Stranger in a Strange Land
    After you read this classic SF book, you'll understand why the Church of All Worlds got started... You too may find yourself grokking, trying to teleport, and referring to your friends as your water brothers. The pagan content becomes quite clear the more you read, especially with sacred sexuality and the constantly-repeated "Thou art God." Recommended, although be warned that you will have to put up with Heinlein being, as a friend of mine once put it, "a sexist, narrow-minded, homophobic bastard." Well, I guess we can't all be perfect.

Alice Hoffman, Practical Magic
    This book is more about the power of love than about magick per se, but its tone of wonder and its depiction of the synchronicity between the cycles of nature and the cycles of our lives make it very magical.

Robert Holdstock, Mythago Wood
    The story of an old English forest where strange things happen and reality is constantly shifting. Fascinating elements of myth, archetype, legend... Definitely recommended.

Tanya Huff, Sing the Four Quarters
    An enjoyable fantasy novel set in a world where spiritual beliefs focus on the Circle, composed of Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. In this world there is also gender equality and acceptance of gay/bi/lesbian folk.

Clysta Kinstler, The Moon Under Her Feet
    This novel tells the story of Mari Magdalene, the High Priestess of the Goddess, and her Sacred Marriage to Yeshua (a.k.a. Jesus), the Messiah. Now that we've gotten all those capital letters out of the way, I wouldn't recommend this book on literary grounds, as I found the writing to be over-dramatic. In addition, the scholarship behind the story is somewhat sketchy (referencing Robert Graves as an accurate historical source?). It is interesting and entertaining, however, for those of us who are interested in both Goddess worship and alternate histories of Jesus.

Katherine Kurtz, Lammas Night
    There is a legend that in 1940, witches throughout England raised a cone of power to stop Hitler from invading... This book tells that story. A suspenseful adventure.

Mercedes Lackey, Children of the Night
    This is one of Lackey's Diana Tregarde novels (and the best, in my opinion). Diana is a modern-day witch and psychic Guardian, who teams up with a vampire to fight evil. While the Wiccan parts are accurate, these books do give the idea that witches spend their lives battling supernatural creatures.

---------- The Fire Rose
    This is a fun retelling of Beauty and the Beast, set in San Francisco in 1905. There is a focus on ceremonial Magick dealing with the elements. There are some parts that kind of ramble, though, and some stereotypes. (And while I'm on the subject, Robin McKinley's book Beauty is an excellent version of this fairy tale)

Aileen LaTourette. Cry Wolf.
    This feminist SF/fantasy book tells the story of a post-nuclear-holocaust world where spirituality centers around "the Gods of the Body." Which is interesting, but then the story becomes scattered and loses this particular thread. The book left me very frustrated; I felt it was trying to tell too many stories at once, and ended up not satisfactorily telling any of them.

Ursula K. LeGuin, A Wizard of Earthsea, The Tombs of Atuan, The Farthest Shore, and Tehanu
    This fantastic series is a really interesting look at magic; all of them have a really great handle on what it means to come to terms with the "shadow" side of yourself. (The second and fourth ones are my personal favorites, especially the fourth one, because they look at the differences between men's power and women's power and how much of that is socially constructed. The fourth one was written long after the others, and LeGuin's ideas about feminism and gender had really shifted.)

Rhoda Lerman, Call Me Ishtar
    Novel from the 70's about the goddess Ishtar recreating herself in a modern housewife. The book doesn't try to remake Ishtar into some kind of New Age ideal, which I appreciated. Earthy, intelligent, and very funny.

Morgan Llewellyn, The Elementals
    The four stories in this book (each in a different historical setting - from ancient Greece to colonial New England - and each dealing with a different element) are linked by a common theme of the earth as a living organism.

Donna Jo Napoli, The Magic Circle
    This story is a reworking of Hansel and Gretel, set in the Middle Ages. It presents, sort of, the Christian Church's definition of a witch - there are definitely demons - but it's a beautifully told story, poetic and hallucinatory.

Carol Orlock, The Goddess Letters
    I found this book slightly tedious at the beginning but it got better. It's a series of letters written back and forth between Demeter and Persephone; it deals with the shift from matriarchy to patriarchy, among other issues. Interesting.

Rachel Pollack, Godmother Night
    I can't say enough good things about this book. It's mysterious and delightful. It tells the story of two women who fall in love in college and eventually have children together. It also features one of the coolest incarnations of Death that I've ever run into. It asks a lot of metaphysical questions as well as teling a great story.
(Oh, and of course it's out of print.)

Mary Renault, The King Must Die and The Bull From the Sea
    These books are a retelling of the Theseus myth; there are lots of pagan things going on. They're good reading, if a little dry, and I generally think she does a really good job of bringing ancient religious traditions alive in her writing. But be warned that Theseus is sexist and obnoxious.

Tom Robbins, Skinny Legs and All
    A wonderful fable about a painted stick, a conch shell, and a can o' beans. Oh, and a restaurant run jointly by a Jewish man and an Arab. This book somehow managed to incorporate all of the elements which are central to my worldview (the sacredness of everyday life; goddess-worship; the evil of capitalism; the evil of religious zealotry; a wonderful sense of humor; and many, many more things!) Most highly recommended.

----------- Jitterbug Perfume
    Another wonderful fable, this time about immortality, the god Pan, and the powers of our sense of smell.

Josephine Saxton, The Travails of Jane Saint
    A witty feminist novella about a woman who, while experiencing sensory deprivation (in an attempt by the State to brainwash her) undertakes a quest to change the relationships between men and women. This quest takes place in an Otherworld which might be the collective unconscious, and involves all kinds of symbols and archetypes. Intelligent, funny, and enjoyable.

Zilpha Keatley Snyder, The Egypt Game
    This is a story about six junior-high-school kids who are fascinated by ancient Egypt and its gods, so they recreate Egyptian rituals. I've loved this book ever since I was about ten or eleven and it's one of my absolute favorites :)

------------ The Changeling
    This book is sadly out of print. It's about the somewhat magical adventures of two girls: Martha, who is essentially a miserable misfit; and Ivy, who is different from anyone else Martha knows. Their friendship brings magic into Martha's life. Difficult to describe but recommended!

Starhawk, The Fifth Sacred Thing
    The story is set about fifty years from now in California. It deals with the conflict all peaceful societies have had to deal with - i.e., how to resist violence without becoming violent. This book is one of the few things that gives me hope that it's possible to do so. Magick, sacred sex, syncretism, and all sorts of pagan goings-on (no surprise there, given the author). Highly recommended.

S.M. Stirling, Dies the Fire
    A futuristic novel in which all electricity (and guns) on Earth suddenly stop working. The book tells the story of small bands of people attempting to survive and re-create communiy. While it presents a positive picture of Wicca (a Celtic Witch named Juniper is one of the main characters and is a strong and powerful leader), I had a lot of other issues with this book. I found the book to be very sexist (and the fact that the author clearly believes he is not being sexist made it even more irritating). Also, it reflects an SCA-like nostalgia for cultures and societies that never really existed as we imagine them. Which is fine in the SCA, but let's not try to pretend it would work in the real world.

Jean Stubbs, The Witching Time
    Delightful British novel about a young woman who moves out into the English countryside and takes up with a group of witches, women who practice healing and celebrate the Sabbats at the local standing stones, but are not looked on with favor by all the locals. She is also drawn into local intrigue via a theatrical production. Much drama ensues. Occasionally I found plot elements unconvincing (the villain and his dastardly doings, for example), but the characters were generally well-drawn and I very much enjoyed the story.

Thomas Tryon, Harvest Home
    Most definitely pagan, but also creepy, in that special fertility-cult sort of way!

Joan T. Vinge, The Snow Queen
    A fantastic book (in every sense of the word) that manages to mix science fiction, fantasy, mythology, fairy tales, and social commentary. Something for everyone.

Elisabeth Waters, Changing Fate
    This is a really good fantasy story about a girl who is a shapeshifter. Some themes, such as the "Year-King", the gods worshipped, and the importance of the four elements, are rather pagan in nature. One thing I really liked about this book was that there were no easy villains.

Robert Anton Wilson and Robert Shea, Illuminatus!
    This extremely inventive and confusing trilogy is vaguely Discordian. Then again, it is so random that it relates to pretty much anything else you could think of! Recommended, especially if you have a short attention span and a lot of time on your hands.

Society and Community

    In these books, the Actual Pagan Content is limited or nonexistent. However, I think they deal with important issues of society, nature, and community in a way that resonates with pagan ideology. (My idea of "pagan values" is pretty well expressed by Starhawk's pagan political agenda.)

Dorothy Bryant, The Kin of Ata Are Waiting For You
    This is a wonderful story about the power of dreaming. The plot is basically that a spiritually empty man has an accident and finds himself on a remote island where none of the rules of the normal world apply. It kind of reminds me of Stranger in a Strange Land. Highly recommended. (Note: this book is also published as The Comforter)

Octavia Butler, Parable of the Sower
    This story takes place around 2020, in California, in a society in which violence has increased and the environment has gotten worse. The narrator is a young woman who is resourceful and not afraid to face the truth - that things are not going to get better on their own. She is in the process of creating her own religion, predicated on the observation that "God is Change." This book really changed my thinking. Oh, and also, it is one of the few visionary novels I've come across that really deals with issues of race.

Ernest Callenbach, Ecotopia
    Would it be too much to ask for a utopia story told through the eyes of a female protagonist? *sigh* Anyway, this book made for somewhat flat reading (from a literary perspective) but was interesting theoretically. It tells the story of a (male) journalist who visits the environmentally friendly state of Ecotopia (formerly Northern California, Oregon, and Washington, having seceded from the US - sounds good to me!). The utopian aspect of the book definitely provided some interesting food for thought.

Sylvia Engdahl, The Far Side of Evil
    While not pagan-themed, this book presents some very interesting ideas about the nature of civilization and technology, in particular the idea that each world makes a choice between nuclear development and space travel. It's about a young woman from a highly advanced civilization; she has an observation mission on a planet very similar to ours. (Plus, Sylvia Engdahl is really neat.

Aldous Huxley, Island
    This is a great pagan utopia story, which reminded me both of The Kin of Ata (see above) and The Three Sirens (see below), but with a more scientific approach. It was rather too behavioristic for me, but nonetheless interesting. Definitely recommended.

Ursula K. LeGuin, Always Coming Home
    This book blew me away. It's an anthropological study of a fictional culture who "might be going to have lived" in a valley in California in a couple thousand years. It's a mixture of stories, poems, songs, myths, and descriptions of how the people live. A beautiful vision (and, of course, out of print).

------- The Dispossessed
    This book's unofficial subtitle is "an ambiguous utopia," which is a good description. It tells the story of a man from an anarchistic society who goes back to visit the capitalist planet from which the founders of his society escaped. This book is beautiful, and realistic without being cynical. It made me cry. Most highly recommended.
Perhaps I should mention that I'm a huge fan of Ursula LeGuin. Her books are moving, beautifully crafted, and deeply human. I encourage everyone to explore her works.

Morgan Llewellyn, The Elementals
(See previous section)

Patricia McKillip, Moon-Flash
    This is a short book about a young girl from a tribal sort of culture who leaves her little village to explore; what she discovers changes her forever. A beautifully told story about the intersection of technology and nature.

Marge Piercy, Woman on the Edge of Time
    A woman who has been wrongfully placed in an insane asylum has visions of two very different futures which are both still possible. The one she hopes to bring into being is very loving, small-community-oriented, and close to nature.

------ He, She, and It
    I didn't think this book was as well-written as the above one, but the story is very powerful. It takes place in a future where "multis" (huge corporations) dominate most of the world; the narrator, however, comes from one of the few free towns. The book mixes ancient Jewish legend with current social issues and a very good adventure story.

Irving Wallace, The Three Sirens
    An interesting book about a group of anthropologists who start to question their own assumptions about civilization and sexuality when they visit an uncharted Polynesian island. Engrossing and entertaining, although I was disappointed by the ending.

Arthurian Books

I used to make it a point to read all the Arthurian books I came across - it's always fun to compare the different accounts of incidents, the different motives assigned to characters, the different plot focuses, and, of course, the different spellings of names :> (If you can stand the foreshadowing and predestination and endless irritating prophecies, that is...)

Marion Zimmer Bradley, The Mists of Avalon
    This book is incredible. It's a retelling of the Arthurian myth with an emphasis on the struggle between pagans and Christians at the time, and also an emphasis on the stories of the women involved. It's quite a saga. I will say that (a) sometimes I wish MZB had more of a sense of humor in her stories and (b) by the end I was sort of sick of so much "Of course I should have realized that it was All Part of the Great Plan" (but I talked about that before). Anyway, if you haven't read this book, you should do so immediately.

Gillian Bradshaw, Hawk of May
    This one is told from the point of view of Gwalchmai (the son of Morgause and Lot), which gives it a rather new perspective. Wonderfully told, but I couldn't help noticing that women are allied with black magic/ darkness, whereas men (especially warriors) are on the good side, the side of the Light.

Parke Godwin, Firelord
    An excellent story, the characters are very real and down-to-earth, and Godwin's depiction of the Prydn, who are sort of faeries, is very original. The focus is both on Arthur's psychological development and the conflict between Roman and native British cultures.

Courtway Jones, In the Shadow of the Oak King and Witch of the North
    I didn't enjoy these books all that much, although they certainly put a different spin on things - there's an emphasis on the different tribes which inhabited Britain. I felt that the dialogue was somewhat stilted and the characters were not real enough. Also, there were too many people and places to remember, a problem which I didn't think the author handled well.

Stephen R. Lawhead, Taliesin, Merlin, and Arthur
    (There's a fourth book out, but I've only read the trilogy) The first two books are great reading, but Arthur, for some reason, has a vehemently anti-pagan tone. I think I would have enjoyed it a little more if I could have ignored that. Also, the focus of the first two is more on bards, while the third mainly talks about war and battles. Go figure.

Ian McDowell, Mordred's Curse
    This is a very good book, although occasionally I felt as if the author was trying too hard to be iconoclastic and irreverent. But he does succeed - his Mordred is a fully developed and interesting character, as are most of his characters.

Nancy MacKenzie, The Child Queen, The High Queen
    As you might suspect from the title, these two books focus on Guinevere. They're very nice and make good reading, although Guinevere gets sort of weepy when she's not being strong in a crisis. There's relatively little paganism.

Mary Stewart, The Crystal Cave, The Hollow Hills, The Last Enchantment, and The Wicked Day
    This series is something of a classic. There is a focus on Merlin, but of course he knows everything that's going on, so it's not as if you miss out on anything :) These books are all wonderful. There's really not much else I can say; the story is basically the traditional one.

Elisabeth Wein, The Winter Prince
    This book is a wonderful, poetic retelling from the point of view of Medraut (Mordred). It's very pagan. It's about the struggle to be Arthur's heir, between the Winter Prince, Medraut, and Arthur's other son, sickly Lleu. Medraut's ambivalence about Lleu - alternately he is jealous and protecting - are the main focus of the story. This is another one of those books that I can't say enough good things about.

T.H. White, The Once and Future King
    This is a classic; for those who haven't read it, it's by turns satirical and serious; there's a lot of humor and also a lot of deep issues. There's not much paganism in it, unless you count an encounter with Robin Hood, who is called Robin Wood. Merlin, in this version, is a wizard who lives backward in time (which provides some interesting grammatical wonderings).

Faery Fiction

Gael Baudino, Shroud of Shadow>
    This is about Elves (Goddess-worshipping ones) during the Inquisition. As with most of Gael Baudino's books, this has a feminist slant which can get preachy. But on the whole it's an okay book. Gael Baudino has another book that deals with Elves/ magic/ the Goddess during the Inquisition - it's called Strands of Starlight. I liked it better in a lot of ways; there are some interesting psychological debates, if I remember correctly. Then there's Strands of Sunlight, which is about the rebirth of Elves in the twentieth century and is a story about (emotional) healing.

Emma Bull, War for the Oaks
    This book is similar to Gossamer Axe (see first section) but not as political. A rock musician gets drafted in a war against the Unseelie Court. Excellently told and highly recommended.

John Crowley, Little, Big
   : A beautiful novel about Faerie, architecture, and human relationships. Enchanting, poetic writing (although I came away from the novel not sure if I totally understood it.)

Charles de Lint, Dreams Underfoot.
    This book is sometimes funny and sometimes very frightening. It's a collection of short stories about Newford, an imaginary city; by halfway through the book, you feel like you've actually been there. Also, there are recurring characters; these and the unity of setting make this book not a series of unrelated short stories, but a series of episodes. (Note: most of Charles de Lint's works are urban fantasy involving faery-like creatures, but I don't feel like listing them all here)

Rosemary Edghill, Sword of Maiden's Tears and Cup of Morning Shadows
    I don't like these two as much as Edghill's other fiction - I think she uses cliches which she could have avoided; but they still make a pretty good read. They're about a young woman in contemporary NYC who meets up with an elf lord looking for a lost treasure; the first takes place in NYC and the second in Elfland.

Lisa Goldstein, Strange Devices of the Sun and Moon
    This story takes place in Elizabethan England; the story of a widow who runs her late husband's bookselling business but otherwise is fairly ordinary - until she comes in contact with the faeries... This is a very interesting and imaginative story with plenty of historical figures, e.g. Kit Marlowe, Thomas Kyd.

Ellen Kushner, Thomas the Rhymer
     This is a richly and beautifully told tale, reworking an old ballad about a harper who is seduced by the Queen of Elfland and is taken to live with her for seven years. There's humor, pain, poetry, and everything in between. I recommend it most highly!

Mercedes Lackey and Holly Lisle, When the Bough Breaks
    This is good contemporary fantasy about an elf trying to save a psychically gifted child who is being molested by her stepfather. Fast-paced and fun, if not a great work of literature. (Note: there are also more Mercedes Lackey books about faeries and elves and such, but you can find them for yourselves if you're so inclined!)

Patricia C. Wrede, Snow White and Rose Red
    A retelling of the fairy tale set in Elizabethan England; some historical figures such as John Dee and Edward Kelly, who practice ceremonial magick and, trying to get power from the Faerie world, trap some of the Faerie Queen's son's mind, so that he turns into a bear. This book is not extraordinary but I think it's worth reading.

My Recommended Pagan Non-Fiction.

Take Me Back to Beth's Pagan Stuff
