Links from Francesca De Grandis

There's a lot of links here I haven't explored. In more recent years my health demands that, if I'm to do all the work folks need of me, I don't spend much time visiting sites. Nowadays, if someone asks for a link, I'm happy to give it, site unseen. So if you find something that offends you, I might not endorse it either. Lemme know if a link doesn't work.

Blessed be.

Steve.C. Hickman turned me onto this, explaining it is a "limited area search engine (LASE) on the World-Wide Web...designed to cover the ancient and medieval worlds." Steve continues "If you are trying to find something dealing with the ancient civilizations and are finding it more difficult day by day to do so on the major search engines, then this is the site for you....I found it to be very excellent in doing some research on pagan culture in the ancient world."
A great resource for readers,
this search engine searchs for books as well as for their prices at various internet bookstores.

Religion & Spirituality, Mostly Earth Based, and Not in Order Yet, Unlike the Above Which Has Pretensions of Order

Francesca De Grandis's Wiccan and Faerie Grimoire
is where I keep a lot of my other pagan and religions links. It is also a potpourri of pagan spells, rituals, articles, announcments, and other magical sundries, with a non-exclusive emphasis on Faerie.
The 3rd Road
is my branch of Faerie Tradition, my Wiccan school and my community.
I enjoyed "meeting" the site's web master
--- who is a pagan author -- via visiting that site. Glad to meet a committed community servant of both the pagan and gay community.
The Sacred Grove
is defined by Puck, one of the Sacred Grove crew, as the "virtual manifestation of The Sacred Grove, an occult shop and magickal resource/networking center in Santa Cruz, California, USA. Website features an occult text library, ...magickal and paranormal investigation center, chatroom,..." I've been to the actual shop and had a wonderful time.
Branwen's Cauldron of Light
offers "Custom witchcraft and magickal supplies with a reader contributed Book of Shadows, Pagan Library, and forum." Branwen wrote me a few notes. I liked her.
Magical Blend Magazine
I like them: they gave my book, Be a Goddess!, a rave review! :-) The review should be on their site.
Ye Olde Consciousness Shoppe
Your guess is as good as mine but they asked for a link, so I gave it. (Understand, I don't get to all the sites that ask me for links. I am simply here to serve all the weirdos like myself. Um,"weirdo" is a compliment in my eyes. Doesn't mean I won't make fun of myself and others who are as weird as me.) I wonder if they sell metaphyscial goods or brains!
The Druidic Craft of the Wise
is yet another of the innumerable sites I get link requests for yet haven't had a chance to visit. But the note I received with the link request was incredibly sweet.
The Faerie Shaman
The webmaster of this site she says she is no expert, but she sure put a lot of work into her site and I honor that; hard work in the service of the Gods is what a priest does, so she must be a shaman. And her site shows her personal take on things; this is important yet so rarely done in the spiritual community.
Sunrise's personal home page but
by now it may be a music site because last I heard Sunrise was almost done recording a CD. This person describes themself as "Sight-impared Hippie Wizard living in the rainforest writing Myth Music."
Annie Finch's site
which she describes as "Poems, reviews of contemporary poetry, poetry links, and more from a goddess-friendly poet whose work is worth knowing."
The Open Hearth Foundation, Inc. (OHF)
is a "Pagan community center initiative based in Alexandria, Virginia. The OHF is a nonprofit organization."
The homepage of Knightshade,
a member of the on-line Wiccan communiity, whose page shares info about, among other things, astral projection and herbs.
New Pagan, Wicca, Magic (The Virtual Library: Religion)
White Buffalo Society
Crescent Moongoddess Magickal Supply Catalog
Great Info on Midwest Pagan Scene
The Witch's Voice
is chock full of Wiccan info. And while you're there, check out the music of Fritz Jung, one of the folks responsible for the site. Fritz is a fun musician. I am a musical snob but I rocked out with his CD. Fritz's album is a rythmic, bright, high energy collection and a sincere celebration of spirituality and joyful living. Fritz's personal good will and warmth shine in his music.
Enchante: The Journal for the Urbane Pagan
is a literary magazine for Witches and Pagans and anyone interested in Earth-based spiritualities. John Yohalem, its witty editor, writes, "If tribal shamans in ancient Siberia had subscribed to magazines, this is the one they'd have gone for. If only for the jokes. But also the serious articles."
The PenUltimate Productions Website
showcases the writing of pagan author, Elizabeth Barrette, whose name appears in many prominent pagan magazines. And, as the site shows, Elizabeth also writes speculative fiction and material relating to Gender Studies and alternative sexuality.
