About meBrian Dare, dubbed "Librarian of the Gods" by my friends, and by my patrons at the now-defunct first pagan coffeehouse in Tampa: Incantations.

My Livejournal


About my libraryMore nonfiction than fiction, with a heavy emphasis on Occult, Metaphysical, Ceremonial Magic, and the like. Also a lot on music with a focus on Punk (which I view as much as a social movement as a genre of music).

One day I'm going to count them, but presently all I know is that my books number in the thousands.
