    Druidry and Wicca are the two great streams of Western Pagan tradition. Both traditions are experiencing a renaissance all over the world, as more and more people seek a spirituality rooted in a love of nature and the land. Increasingly, listeners are combining the ideas of both traditions to craft their own spiritual practice. In this down-to-earth, inspiring guide, Philip Carr-Gomm offers a name for this Path that draws on the common beliefs and practices of Wicca and Druidry: DruidCraft.

    Story

    I turned the book off after the statement that "only the foolish and mentally ill use intention to hurt people". Not only does this disparage a group that, by and large, don't curse anyone. But it is horribly fluffy bunny. I've noticed a frightening trend recently of the so-called wise jumping on the "blame the mentally ill" bandwagon. I've never bought anything from Philip Carr-Gromm before, and if this is the nature of his good intention, I won't do it again.

    Ever since the publication of Bram Stoker's novel Dracula, vampires have been a part of the popular consciousness. Now, with the release of the phenomenally popular Twilight novel and the subsequent films, it seems that we can't get enough of these bloodsucking creatures of the night. But we might not sleep quite so soundly if we knew that vampires aren't confirmed to the page and the screen. There is a thriving UK vampire scene that has its roots deep in our history.

    Story

    This book is a good overview of the vampire societies of England and America, though it focuses primarily on England. What is a little bit off putting about the book, is that in many places it states vampires are not "real". In the sense that they are not undead bloodsuckers. But then the book operates on the premise that vampires are a seperate species, who exist alongside humanity, taking what little they need, when they need it. Although, if you do suspect you are a vampire, or just want to pretend, it's a good book. With many details I didn't know before. I do, however believe there is only one species of Human.

    What did you love best about The Discovery of Witches?

    It is rare that a non-academic like me gets a direct view into the mind of one of the most infamous people in English history. This is an excelent reading of what must have been a pamphlet, and I enjoyed it very much, and have listen to it many, many times.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Mathew Hopkins reasoning. Wacky, but in the seventeenth century mindset, it would have made since.


    What does Felbrigg Napoleon Herriot bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I dont know. But his voice sounds authentic, and he fits the book well.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No.
