“The Green Egg has become one of the staples of Pagan life in the United States, and rightly so in my opinion. For many years it has been a melting pot for Pagan opinion and experience; a means for elders to share and beginners to learn. Paganism without the Green Egg would be unthinkable!”
—Ray Buckland, author of Buckland’s Complete Book of Witchcraft
“I read the Green Egg because it has in it things I do not find elsewhere.”
—Robert Heinlein, author of Stranger in a Strange Land
“It is always with a feeling of excitement that I await my next issue of the Green Egg. It provides a breath of fresh air in the too-often sanctimonious and occasionally stuffy atmosphere of the New Age.”
—Jacques Vallée, author of Forbidden Science
As acknowledged in every history of modern Paganism, the articles, poetry, art, and letters published in Green Egg over the past four decades informed, inspired, and shaped the emerging Pagan community into the fastest-growing religious movement in the English-speaking world. This richly illustrated anthology of favorite writings and artwork from those legendary issues opens a window into the birth, infancy, and adolescence of a transformative cultural revolution that is now, in the 21st century, entering its maturity.
Selections from 40 years of Green Egg include articles from numerous contributors, including Antero Ali, Isaac Bonewits, Marion Zimmer Bradley, Darryl Cherny, Phyllis Curott, LaSara Firefox, Ed Fitch, Jesse Wolf Hardin, Anodea Judith, Ralph Metzner, Diana Paxson, Starhawk, and Robert Anton Wilson.
