i'll check out those links in a minute Flagg, thanks for sharing.
i'm a bit torn myself on Silver, when i first started out, the library only had 5 books on witchcraft, one was on trials, another was one chapter in a book on cults, one was a spell book, one was by Raymond Buckland and the final was by Silver Ravenwolf. her name kinda stuck me as a turnoff because 'Siver Ravenwolf' to me sounds like a name a Fluffy Bunny would use, and my other wiccan friends told me to stay away. for the past year, i've been rethinking her, it's not so much she doesn't know what she's talking about, she just seems kind of, well, for lack of a better word 'Fluffy'. if you like her, it's fine, but people like Silver kind of rub me the wrong way. my friend could explain it better than i can, i just avoid her work because i know i don't enjoy it. i don't get why people go out of their way to insult her though.
