Thank you for this listing. I do have one question/concern. With regards to your "Authors to Avoid" list it would be helpful to express why they are to be avoided. Since paganism/witchcraft/wicca are such broad topics with many variations I'm wondering if you feel these authors are purposely misleading or giving bad information or if you feel that their content does not fit into your scope of the topic. Just curious.

MM Aislynn,

Have you read, Ronald Hutton's The Triumph of the Moon? I just started it and was wondering if you had an opinion of this work?
