Al Cumminsstarry rubric

The Starry Rubric: Seventeenth-century English Astrology and Magic (Hadean Press, 2012).

The Starry Rubric traces the environmental, political and social functions of astrology and astrological magic; focusing on agriculture and the philosophy of time, civil war propaganda and eschatology, and medicine and early sociological modelling. It seeks to explore notions of knowledge, affect, and action by examining the various dimensions of early modern astrology’s ecology, ontology, and epistemology.

A Kindness of Ravens: Collected Essays

A dead bard on a desolate hill, giants on a cliff-edge, a heroin-addict in a dumpster, blood-soaked shattered glass on a window-ledge, and midwinter sunlight streaming through the tomb of Newgrange…A Kindness of Ravens is a collection of forest-edged words arrayed against the theft of meaning and the death of dreams. Find within essay on civilisation and its end, poems on gods & love, and journals from an unlikely pilgrimage each haunted by the songs of the Singers in the Darkness and the rage of the Raven King.

Enchanting the Shadowlands

A collection of poems and short stories gathered from my local landscape in response to an imperative from a Brythonic god called Gwyn ap Nudd: ‘Enchanting the Shadowlands.’



God speakingJudith O’Grady


God-Speaking offers a new concept in Earth ecology incorporating mysticism and folk religion. The author is both a trance seer and a biologist, bringing a unique balance to an examination of nature philosophy. Storytelling examples from Irish folklore, NeoPagan theology, and scientific observations all contribute to a carefully reasoned theory about the future of the Earth and ourselves.

All Acts of Love & Pleasure: Inclusive Wicca

All Acts of Love and Pleasure is a companion guide to inclusive Wicca, which includes all participants regardless of sexual orientation, disability, age, or other differences, not by erasing or ignoring the distinctions, but by working with them creatively within initiatory Craft. Tracing the development of Pagan and Wiccan ideas about gender and sexuality, authority and tradition, we can see that the Craft has evolved since the 1950s, and will continue to develop in the future.

Dancing with Ma’at’s Feather

Dancing with Ma’at’s Feather flings you on a journey into a Mystical Life. Part autobiography, part historical observation and part prose, you will accomply one counter-cultural bohemian’s journey as he grows up through the button-down mindset of the 50’s into the heart of hippydom’s heyday on the streets of San Francisco, awakens to action through the Viet-Nam conflict and documents his subsequent immersion into decades of protest, fluid sexuality, alternative community and pagan spirituality.

Ancient Spirit Rising

Drawing on cultural studies and contemporary social justice, Ancient Spirit Rising: Reclaiming Your Roots & Restoring Earth Community examines the loss of our vital ethnocultural connection to tribe and place, and why there is a trend to borrow identities from other cultures. From the wealth of resources available today, an authentic self-identity can be reconstructed from old/new earth-centered societies, using the timeless values of indigenous knowledge (IK) as our model. A weaving  of analysis, evocation and promptings of the heart, Ancient Spirit Rising offers strategies for intercultural competency, healing our relationships with Turtle Island First Nations, decolonization, rewilding, restoring an ecocentric worldview, returning to the Old Ways, creating a sustainable future and reclaiming peaceful co-existence in Earth Community.  Author Pegi Eyers is a member of the Celtic mtDNA-based Helena Clan (world clans descended from “Mitochondrial Eve” as traced by The Seven Daughters of Eve), with more recent roots connecting her to the mythic arts and Pagan traditions of both England and Scotland.  She lives in the countryside on the outskirts of Peterborough, Canada on a hilltop with views reaching for miles in all directions.
