Books at AAR That I Could Not Resist

Checking some of the post-AAR blogging, I see people listing book purchases from the publishers’ exhibit. Here are mine:

The Western Esoteric Traditions: A Historical Introduction. (I should also get Kocku’s Western Esotericism: A Brief History of Secret Knowledge, and I need something by the discipline’s éminence grise, Antoine Faivre, such as Access to Western Esotericism.)

• Doug Cowan’s Sacred Terror: Religion and Horror on the Silver Screen. That’s research material too. Doug is one of those scholars who manages to teach effectively, write a lot, and still have a life.

• Ordered for later delivery, Ronald Hutton’s Blood and Mistletoe: The History of the Druids in Britain.
