The Book is Here!

I am thrilled to announce that as of today, Atheopaganism: An Earth-Honoring Path Rooted in Science is available for order in print and e-book formats!

Atheopaganism is a handy guide to the path: the science background, the values, the Principles, the Sabbaths, crafting rituals, building a Focus, etc.

The book has global distribution and can be ordered from any independent bookseller. The ISBN numbers are 978-0-578-57198-0 for the e-book and 978-0-578-57197-3 for the print version.

Please don’t buy it from Amazon, which is a horrible company—I had no choice about having it included in their catalog. (I’m not sure where you can download the epub version other than at Amazon, however—I guess at Apple, which is another horrible company). If you can’t order from a local bookstore, please do so from Barnes & Noble.

There are so many to thank for the achievement of this milestone: Atheopaganism Patrons; my own circle of magical Pagans, Dark Sun; the many friends both in physical presence and online who have encouraged me and the project; John Halstead, who wrote the foreword; Arwen Gwyneth, who did an incredible job with the page layout; my partner Nemea and many, many more.

But here, most of all I want to thank you, reader. Without the interest in this blog and path, the book could never have come into being.

Atheopaganism went from being a personal path to one with more than 1,500 practitioners in the space of only a few short years. I see the availability of this book as a necessary and important step towards our path being both more widely visible and more accepted in Pagan and atheist circles.

I’m even starting to imagine a second book, about living the Atheopagan life!

At Last, There is Going to be a Book!

I am excited to announce that on October 1, Atheopaganism: An Earth-Honoring Path Rooted in Science will be published! The book will be available in both print and e-book formats and will be available through the usual channels.

Atheopaganism contains a full overview of the science behind Atheopaganism, a discussion of the Atheopagan worldview, values, Principles, wheel of the year, rites of passage and ritual creation. It is a thoroughgoing handbook in the theory and practice of Atheopaganism as a living, evolving Pagan path.

Patrons can expect to receive discounts or free copies of the book, depending on their support level (the book is described in the Patreon patronage tiers as The Atheopagan Reader, but I retitled it to be more descriptive for newcomers).

I am deeply grateful to all Atheopaganism patrons, past and present, for your support. The book could not have come into being without you.

Publishing this book fulfills a longtime dream for me, and I must also thank everyone who has participated in bringing Atheopaganism to life as more than just my own solitary path: readers and followers of this website, participants in the Facebook group, attendees and panelists at events and workshops at Pantheacon, and the many, many folk who have expressed relief and encouragement at their discovery of Atheopaganism as a path and a community.

I’ll post information about ordering the book as the publication date grows nearer. Stay tuned!
