Updating My Witchcraft Book

For the next few weeks I’ll be updating and expanding Witchcraft: A Concise Guide into a new book my publishers (Citadel Press) have decided to call Bonewits’s Essential Guide to Witchcraft and Wicca.

Currently, I’m planning to update the materials on Classic Witches, the Burning Times (everything we knew was wrong), and a few new titbits on Gerald Gardner and his competitors. I hope to add a full Wiccan ritual script, advice on how to choose a teacher, how to spot frauds, and basic Wiccan magical techniques—in short, everything a newcomer to the Craft would need to get started on the path, plus interesting materials for experienced Wiccan clergy. In part, this is based on my Wicca 101/301 class that I’ve taught in the past, with beginners’ material spiced with insights from thirty years of practice.

I would like to hear from those who have read the earlier versions(s) about what you would like to see added or changed. What could I do to make this book as valuable as possible to its readers? What have you never seen in a Witchcraft book that you really want to know?

Yes, folks, it’s the dawn of interactive book writing! Here’s your opportunity to influence a new book that will be as widely distributed as anything from Llewellyn.
