We believe that in order to buy a good book you have to know what’s in it first. That’s why here at Magickware we review new Pagan and Wiccan books. Titles are listed in reverse chronological order. To make your purchase easier for books you want they are linked directly to amazon.com.
How the books are reviewed:
There are several criteria that I use to review books. First and foremost is how useful the book is for the general Pagan audience. Next, I try and determine whether the book is good for a beginner or advanced audience, how closely a book follows Pagan concepts of right and wrong as I understand them. (ie. Harm none and the Law of return)
Finally, is how interesting the book is on its own merits. Poorly written text, poorly edited text or poorly bound physical books will not get as high a recommendation as others that are better presented. After all, the readers deserve a quality product.
Books from know vanity publishers will not be reviewed. I have a limited amount of time to devote to book reviews and books from vanity publishers usually are poorly written, edited and bound. Self published books are reviewed if they appear to be of good physical quality and are available at amazon.com or other distribution outlets.
If there is a new book that you would like reviewed please contact us with your request. Only books that are less than a year old are reviewed. If your book was published beyond this time, please save your time and money and do not send it to me. (Publishers and authors can send review copies to the snail mail address on the contact page. We do not pay for review editions, COD packages will be refused.)
