HI!

I'm reading though the "Satanic Witch" at the moment and it's not what I expected! Some people might find him charming but it just gets really creepy sometimes! I think he might have ripped of frued or something as this "inner daemon" stuff sounds a bit like the ID. The body shapes stuff kind of makes sense but it's very new to me! Not the kind of thing I'm used to reading at all!

Freud?
Haven't read too much Satanic stuff, it seems kind of...overly arrogant?
Like, self-confidence is good, but you still need to question yourself.

HI!

Arrogant! That's a perfect way to put it! He also talks about having 3 layers to the self, Outer, Inner and Core! That kind of made me think of Frued, not sure though!

Just finished "The Way of Wyrd" by Brian Bates.  Awesome fictionalized account of Anglo-Saxon shamanism based on historical facts and the experience of a modern Anglo-Saxon sorcerer.

All Quiet on the Western Front.

I had read it as a boy, and I had forgotten how good it is.

A book that I thought was interesting out of the many anti-war books written after WW1 was by Robert Graves, it was called, Good-bye to All That, it was an autobiography focusing on his WWI experiences. It is interesting for it is a critique of British society at the time and since Robert Graves was so much of an influence on the pagan movement with his book, The White Goddess. His accounts of the flesh eating rats in the trenches during WW1 has stayed with me. Another good anti-war book from WW1 was, Johnny Got His Gun, by the American writer Dalton Trumbo. It involves the story of a totally disabled young man unable to communicate after getting caught in an artillery shell blast. I always have liked, Cats Cradle, by Kurt Vonnegut, it is about the allied bombing of Dresden in WW11.

Right now I am reading 'The Storm of War.' It is about War World II. Ever since a few years ago i've been interested in reading about War World II and Hitler. :) I know i'm crazy.

I need to expand my library of Terry Pratchett. I was perusing quotes tonight and saw this one:

Quote
Most witches don't believe in gods. They know that the gods exist, of course. They even deal with them occasionally. But they don't believe in them. They know them too well. It would be like believing in the postman.

The Discworld series is well worth reading, you can search Amazon with that word and you'll get lots of hits. I personally like the ones about the Watch.
