Once amusing. Twice EPICFAIL!

By Fire Lyte

Twice now my article on being gay and pagan has been used to directly cite what’s wrong with young, upstart pagans attempting to understand, learn, or otherwise create their own spiritual relationship with gender and deity.

By Frater Barrabbas

Recently, I have found on the web that many practitioners of magick appear to have fully embraced the three laws of magick, which were popularized rather ignominiously by James Frazier in the late 19th century.

Unmasking Shakespeare

By Michael Posner

What if the Shakespeare legacy is a charade designed to conceal the author’s true identity? And what if the real playwright was a Jewish woman who dared not acknowledge her authorship in Elizabethan England?
