Who are you favourite Wican authors?

March 31, 2007 7:19am CST
I have many favourite authors on the subject of Wicca, they include Scott Cunningham, Raven Grimassi, and Ly De Angeles, they have a very innate way of connecting to the reader (student), who is your favourite and why? and which titles of theirs would you suggest?

Ah, Scott Cunningham. Now there's a name that I haven't heard in a long time. His book, Guide for the Solitary Practitioner was one of the first books that I read when I learned of Wicca, right behind Raymond Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft. Both were indispensible to me back then. You know, I should pull them out of their retirement and read them again. Ah, the memories . . .

For anyone starting out I think that Cunningham is a great author. Just about any of his books really, but my favorites are Magickal Household and Magickal Herbalism. I also like Amber K (Beginning Magick) because it covers a lot of ground in a way that is pretty easy to read.Wheel of the Year by Campanelli is good. I also heard that there is a Wheel of Life book. Wouldn't mind checking that one out.The Craft by Dorothy Morrison is a good step by step tyep book that gives a good basis. I think that most people would end up using it as a jump off point but it gives a good grounding in the basics.When, Why...If by Robin Wood I think is one of the best out there on ethics both from a day to day and a magickal standpoint. The best thing about it is it's written as a workbook that can be used by people not in a group.There are other standards such as Drawing Down the Moon and Positive Magic, and they are good but you asked for the ones I like to read...hehe. Those are a bit dry for my taste.Hehe.Oh, and I also like Kirsten Madden since she wrote some good stuff for familes and kids.

I've read quite a number of wicca/pagan style books...right now I'm reading a "classic" Drawing Down the Moon by Margot Adler...but the first book that got me "into" this path was "The Book Of Shadows" by Phyllis Curott---then one thing led to another to another...--and yes, I've read Ly De Angeles, Cunningham, Eileen Holland--I have to confess it's been awhile since I 've done any real extensive reading though, and plan to go back..one is constantly learning

I'm suspicious of the quality of any author whose name is probably not the same as the one on their birth certificate. Vivianne Crowley is good. and obviously, by definition, the best Wiccan Author can't be anyone but Gerald Brosseau Gardner, seeing as he started the whole thing.

I think the only Wiccan author I've ever really enjoyed were Scott Cunningham, Dorothy Morrison and Ann Moura *sp*...though I've not read any of those books (in fact Ive sold most of them) in a very long time....
