For years I bemoaned the lack of Pagan-friendly fiction written by authors who had, at the very least, an understanding of out ways. I discovered that I have been looking in the wrong places. The major publishing houses had no references to go by, so their offerings were mediocre at best.
Then I began looking to some of the smaller, vanity press-style publishers. I found some good things there, but it was definitely hit or miss. There had been occasional short fiction published in some of the journals being put out, but again it was very hit or miss thing.
Now Llewellyn (one of the largest metaphysical publishers in the U.S. [at least]) has stepped up to the plate. In conjunction with PanGaia magazine they have brought a collection of short fiction to the wider public.
If you enjoy short stories (and who doesn’t?), this is a good collection for you. There is a wide variety of styles contained herein – everything from sci-fi to historical fantasy. There is, quite literally, something here for everyone. There are even a few stories which simply beg for continuations, or expansions into novellas at the very least.
Pick up a copy of this book and enjoy the stories.
