Embracing the Witch and the Goddess Excerpt :

Embracing the Witch and the Goddess is a detailed survey of present-day feminist witches in New Zealand. It examines the attraction of witchcraft for its practitioners, and explores witches' rituals, views and beliefs about how magic works. The book provides a detailed portrait of an undocumented section of the growing neo-pagan movement, and compares the special character of New Zealand witchcraft with its counterparts in the United States, Great Britain, and Australia. Kathryn Rountree traces the emergence and history of feminist witchcraft, and links witchcraft with the contemporary Goddess movement. She reviews scholarly approaches on the study of witchcraft and deals with the key debates which have engaged the movement's adherents and their critics, and ultimately presents what Mary Daly declared was missing from most historical and anthropological research on witchcraft: a 'Hag-identified vision'. Based on fieldwork amongst witch practitioners, Embracing the Witch and the Goddess is an important contribution to the emerging profile of present-day witchcraft and paganism.

The Witch Nextdoor Excerpt :

As Mike is trying to figure out why nobody ever notices the girl next-door, he tries to make contact with her, only forgetting what he was about to do by the time he reaches the door. The Witch Next-door is a story about outcasts, hidden magical potential, and the strength released once a person ‘breaks.’ Amanda prefers to remain hidden from the world, Valentina wants vengeance, while Mike is just beginning to question his position in society. As they tumble down a rabbit-hole, they find out that Lucifer was simply the first son of an unjust father, and he’s done taking it lying down. “My name is Lucifer,” he replied, “I was the one who brought light into this world.” Goths, witches, vampires, demons and angels, each play a vital part of a story that leads deeper and deeper into darkness.

But a local girl has been accused of witchcraft, the mayor's son is ill, and the town is clamoring to put all users of magic to the stake. He can't tell them that he's the one they're hunting for. Forced to flee, Zerrick searches to find out if his magic is a curse or a blessing. Beyond the colonial town a vast wilderness awaits, with mythical monsters, strange tattooed natives who worship the Goddess, and magic in every plant and tree. In a neighboring town he meets a young woman, Mira, who seeks to flee the harsh constraints of their society. All they want is a place where they can live peacefully, but unrest is everywhere. The land itself is suffering as magic has grown more volatile and dark omens have appeared. Stranger still, Zerrick dreams of another woman calling to him, demanding to be freed. For Zerrick and Mira, the only way forward is following the call--into greater unknowns than they were ever prepared for.
