Existential Pagan -- On Freedom and Responsibility
Neo-Pagan Essence by Otter Zell
One of the long-time voices of the American Neo-Pagan religious movement is Oberon (formerly Otter) Zell, the founder of the Church Of All Worlds and publisher of the influential Green Egg magazine. Eschaton Books' release "The Neo-Pagan Essence" is a collection of some of Zell's most informative and entertaining essays, assembled to provide an answer to the frequently-asked question: "Just what is all this Paganism stuff about, anyway?"
The six papers which comprise "The Neo-Pagan Essence" provide background on the traditions, history, context, definition, and goals of modern Paganism, both generally and within the specific stance of Zell's own organization. In these pieces Zell traces the Pagan movement back to its neolithic roots, through the dark days of the "burning times", and shows how its resurgence offers a fresh perspective for the modern world. Although well researched and documented, "The Neo-Pagan Essence" is anything but a dry, scholarly read. Zell's writing is lively and amusing, full of fascinating anecdotes which make the book hard to put down.
