Buckland's Complete Guide to Witchcraft, by Raymond Buckland

Celebrating Life - Rites of Passage for All Ages, by Tzipora Klein (This book is out of print. Copies may be available on eBay)

“Drawing from her deep background in traditional Wicca, Tzipora has assembled a comprehensive cycle of rituals celebrating the manifold changes and transformations of our lives. With a sharp eye for discerning the profound in the mundane, she has given us another useful resource tool that will surely help her readers in creating their own unique rites of passage.” -- Lesley Rebecca Phillips - Unitarian Universalist Minister and co-found of the Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans (CUUPS)

The Complete Book of Incense, Oils & Brews, by Scott Cunningham

“The Complete Book of Incense, Oils & Brews is, in effect, a magical cookbook. Like any cookbook, it teaches, allows plenty of latitude for experimentation and personalization, and gives a large number and wide variety of recipes. These are not the same old tired recipes printed time and again in a host of magical formularies. They are tried and true ones gleaned by Cunningham from a variety of sources over many active years of practice. Included in the book is a very well written chapter on the basics of magic and, to my mind, an extremely valuable chapter on all aspects of substitution..."What can I use if I can't find Juniper (for example)?" This alone is worth the price of the book. I thoroughly recommend it.” -- Raymond Buckland

The Master Book of Herbalism, by Paul Beyerl

“Out of the hundred of herbals, this book is one of the few that includes serious treatment of the realm of magickal herbalism along with basic information on the physical properties of various plants. This is a wonderful sourcebook with a wealth of information on the ritual uses of herbs. It is not only enjoyable to read, but its numerous chapters and appendices with alphabetical listings makes it easy to use. Thanks to Phoenix Publishing and to author Paul Beyerl for sharing this extensive work with others.” -- Selena Fox

Wicca A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner, by Scott Cunningham

“This is a book that is destined to have notable social impact. Cunningham has presented a complete system for the solitary practitioner. It integrates both the magical arts and the religious aspects of Wicca into a harmonious whole.The book is user-friendly, with an easy writing style and rituals that are usable and practical. It makes Wicca accessible to the many hundreds of thousands of individuals who would naturally be drawn to it, but who have no means of contacting or joining a coven. Wicca is an excellent book, a top-notch primer for beginning students, providing a solid grounding in Craft philosophy, yet his invocations are very meaningful and poetic. Scott teaches the student how to achieve a magical rapport with the life-energy of the Universe.” -- Ed Fitch and Janine Renee - Magical Rites from the Crystal Well
