[From Lorrie] Brace Yourselves… the Oracle Book Is Coming!

Hi, folks, Lorrie here (as Diana’s webmaster) with some important news:

Cover of the Oracle Book! Title: The Way of the Oracle: Recovering the Practices of the Past to Find Answers for Today
Author: Diana L. Paxson
Publisher: Red Wheel/Weiser
ISBN: 9781578634835.

Come the first of March, you’ll be able to buy it directly from the publisher, and of course your local friendly neighborhood occult bookstore should carry it–and if they don’t, the above information is everything they’ll need to get it in for you. The publisher is also the one to speak to regarding versions for Kindle, iPad, and other devices–they’ve had these made for the rune book and the trance book, so I’m sure they will for the oracle book as well. I’ll list those in another post.


Wanna get it early? Like, a week and a half before everyone else?


If you’re coming to Pantheacon, Red Wheel/Weiser will be there too, and you can have one nine days before the official release date!

Then, if you’d like yours signed, the best way is to bring it to Oracular Seiðr at 9:00 PM Saturday night in San Simeon/San Carlos (the big double room at the end of the long hall that faces the parking lot), and have her sign it before or after the ritual. Otherwise, Diana can often be found roaming the halls, in Asatru Hospitality, in Spiral Hospitality, and, rarely, declaiming in Middle English in private room parties, but only if you’ve brought enough mead.

The astute reader of the publisher’s page, or gleaner of other publicity about this long-awaited tome, may notice a certain new website as being the author’s official one. If they were astute a couple weeks ago, why, they might have found a simple page in a typewritten font that was extraordinarily unaesthetic. We’re not quite ready to announce it ourselves–there’s brass to polish and glass to fit–but the clever and determined may search themselves for a bit of a sneak peek.
