We all know of modern classics that have made a huge impact on Paganism: Drawing Down the Moon, The Spiral Dance, Natural Magic, Buckland’s Complete Book of Witchcraft, Real Magic, Wicca, and others.

But looking forward, I was wondering which recent books people believe are – or will prove to be – the most influential. Which books written from 2000 to the present do you consider to be game changers? Are they for Paganism in general or your particular path?

Here are a few that pop into my head:

Her Hidden Children by Chas Clifton
Evolutionary Witchcraft by T. Thorne Coyle
Pagan Theology by Michael York – though not without debate, this brought Paganism into a college-level text
• I suspect one or more books by Brendan Myers should be added, but they are still on my to-read list so I can’t say for sure.

For my primary path (Avalonian), the following books have been a blessing:

The Apple Branch by Alexie Kondratiev
• New translations of medieval texts such as Sioned Davies’ The Mabinogian and Simon Artimage’s Sir Gawain and the Green Knight and The Death of King Arthur. (I feel these make the stories more approachable to modern readers without watering them down and/or bring back the poetry that is so often lost in translations.)

The Spirits of the Elements series by Jaq D. Hawkins should be here.
