I see more posts on Mastering Witchcraft have popped up.  Teasers included below.  For the full discussion, follow the links:

Rick Derks at Howling at the Crossroad posts about his experiences with the book:

“My first reaction, having only been exposed to Wicca at that point was ‘This isn’t Witchcraft! He doesn’t know what he’s talking about.’ Then I realized this was what I really wanted Witchcraft to be, and I gave it a shot.”

Raven at Besom, Book and Wand shares his thoughts:

“Mastering Witchcraft is a rare gem, a Witch’s “how to” manual written way before the glut of fluffy, anything-goes McWicca books that flooded the market in the late ’80s and early ’90s. This is not a book about a lovely matriarchal Goddess religion, and it doesn’t encourage you to make up whatever you feel like and call it Witchcraft. This book is good, functional, old-fashioned Witchcraft of the kind Witches ACTUALLY practiced…”

Sarah Lawless promotes the discussion, adding:

“Paul Huson‘s Mastering Witchcraft: A Practical Guide for Witches, Warlocks & Covens, originally released in 1970, is a classic masterpiece of witchcraft publishing. If you’ve made it this far along the path without reading it (egads, that’s like saying you’ve never read Doreen Valiente!), I urge you to go out and procure a copy immediately.”

I encourage you all to consider the discussion points and post what you think, either in UsedKey’s comments section or in your own webspace.

If you do link back to UsedKey promoting the discussing, email me at trothwy at live dot com so I can put your name in the hat (times three) for the chance to win an autographed copy of Mr. Huson’s book.
