I wouldn't say I'm new to witchcraft, but I'm certainly new to the concept of there being specific traditions. I have some money I'm able to burn, so if anyone has any book suggestions let me know. I'm well versed in the Wiccan faith, so I'd like to avoid any books on that particular subject.

Silver Ravenwolf Is a writer you should avoid. Her take and beliefs on various subjects are not reflected by most of the community.

If you are interested in Herbs and kitchen witchery, Scott Cunningham's encyclopedia of magical herbs, Is an amazing book. It is very detailed and in my opinion a must have for kitchen witches.

Yes, any book by Scott Cunningham is excellent I have his solitary witch book. I also like Eileen Holland books.

I'm currently reading Mastering Witchcraft by Paul Hudson. It's far from Wicca, although it has an Alexandrian flare. He's worth the read although I don't agree with everything he says, but I rarely agree with modern magick books. My library is filled with folk lore and mythology books as well as reference books primarily.

But one I really want to read is Jake Stratton Kent's books, especially Geosophia. They're just so much more expensive than I normally like paying for a book. But when I have money to burn like you, I'm totally going for it! He goes into the pagan roots of the grimoires.

For a traditional look at witchcraft I highly recommend Gemma Gary's works, in particular "Traditional Witchcraft: A Cornish Book of Ways".

I also enjoyed "Treading the Mill" by Nigel Pearson. If you can get hold of him Andrew Chumbley's works are my cup of tea: dark, beautiful, evocative language and his tradition just melds so beautifully with my own.

I actually like Stratton-Kent as well, and I have Geosophia but sadly have lacked the time to delve into it yet.

I went ahead and purchased the book by Gemma Gary. The reviews were the best of all the other suggestions when I checked then out. If anybody else had any suggestions go ahead and post them. I'll check them all out.
