CRAFT READING LIST UPDATED
18 JAN 1993
*** Marks especially good books. Read these FIRST!! All are available through interlibrary loan. Generally anything by Farrar, Valiente, Starhawk, Buckland, or Gardner is excellent. Beware of the paperback books put out in the late 60's-early 70's. While there is some useful information in some of them such as excellent tables of correspondence, most of them are full of garbage, misinformation, garbled bits of ceremonial magick, folklore, and wishful thinking. Many of them have some very negative things. Watch out for Paul Huson. some of his stuff is excellent, some is not. Keep in mind, this is simply a listing of the books that we have found useful, or that friends have suggested were useful to them. Question everything.
