I have been trying to find some good pagan based fiction books, but they all tend to be teen stuff.

Could anybody recommend some pagan adult fiction ??

I really enjoyed Brian Bates "The way of the wyrd" if that gives any indication of what i like

So what exactly are you looking for? (more or less) fantasy novels? and how much "paganism" you want in it and what would be "pagan" enough for you? do you take Mediterranean antic civilizations as pagan? or rather just Celtic, Slavic or German tribes?

for example i know great historical fiction (the characters and events are real, the storyline and exact dialogues are made up) "The Eagle and the Raven" by Pauline Gedge...its about Britons defending from Romans in 1st century...so there are some elements of pagan religion, but its not really focused on discussing their rituals

i am sure i have more books in my library, that are "adult enough", just define me the borders

Well that's a bit of a problem because i don't know too much about paganism, but really enjoyed reading 'the way of the wyrd' because it used rituals and the pagans relationship with nature based on actual practices that ancient pagan sorcerers used hundreds of years ago

naturalistic pagan/pantheism interests me, or just or just paganism centered around it's relationship with nature.I'd like some darkness to the story too,and not massive heroic war type story's either,just small settlements kind of thing.

sorry im not sure if that narrows it down for ya enough

Even when i googled it, mostly teen fiction and non fiction books came up, hence why i thought i would ask someone on here. Seems there is quite a few pagans or people who know a fair bit about it in the paganism thread.

The Song of the Nibelungs would be a good place to start.

Problem is i tend to read those "massive heroic war type stories" but you should try this "The Eagle And The Raven" and see if this suits you or not...also i remembered Poul Anderson's "Mother Of Kings" - its from viking Norway of 10th century, the time when old gods began losing to Christianity, but it focus on one family and one life story (although she is a noble queen with lots of power)

btw from what i know (and it are the options of people who have master degrees in history and focus on pagan stuff for their whole lives), there is noone in the world today who really knows "actual practices that ancient pagan sorcerers used hundreds of years ago"...all those neopagans (either slavic, celtic or viking), are just pretending something and their "traditions" most likely origin somewhere in 18th and 19th century romanticism...old traditions are in general lost, melted into christian culture that covered Europe for centuries...

i figured that, i really though i would get more response, especially with so much people into all the pagan themed metal these days. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction anyway.

Brian Bates says in his book 'the way of the wyrd' the spells, ceremonies, healing remedies, and spiritual teachings used by the sorcerer character are straight out of a 1,000 year old wizards spell book preserved in the vaults of the British library.

Anyway, it's a shame these so called pagans get carried away with that magic and fortune telling shit, because apart from that, paganism seems to be very interesting and diverse.

and James MacKillop, Ph.D., a long time Celtic researcher claims, that exactly statements like this are false...

btw 1000 years old - it is around 1000 A.D. - that was already couple of centuries of Christianity on British isles...

and even if there is a book, still it is just a flash of actual traditions...the real bloodline of pagan wisdom was terminated ages ago...

...I have to see that. I remember some porn movie that was based around Norse Mythology and it was pretty damn funny. We have a night here at college where we find the most retarded and hilarious porn and watch it while we get drunk, so if you could tell me what it was called that would be great!

Hi guys. I'm not sure if this crosses a line or not but it is pertinent. If you want Pagan fiction written by a Pagan you might like to check out some of my work. My most Pagan centric works are

Nukekubi: From ancient times nukekubi have haunted the land of Japan. Living as men by day, these beasts slip their heads free of their flesh at night and go in search of human prey. These hapless souls are driven into a terrified madness that results in their death.
Ray McAndrues, a modern-day Egyptian path Pagan wizard, must neutralize a nukekubi that is feasting on the people of Toronto. He is aided by Cathy, a priestess of Bastet and Horus, and Toshiro and Kunio, two, Japanese, martial artists who have made hunting nukekubi their lives' work.
As the quest plays out, questions arise. Who is hunting who? How can you slay the beast that stalks the night without slaying the man who walks the day? What is the strange, millennia-old connection that binds Ray to the beast, and will it help or hinder the quest?
The work follows the principals of Neo-Pagan religion and magic.

Worlds Apart: (due out August 12, 2013) Markus a wizard from a parallel Earth travels to our world in a bid to stop a blight that is destroying his own. Here he meets Alcina, a Wiccan Priestess, who is in a custody battle over her son, Tim, against Carl, the boy's sire, who abandoned her when she was pregnant eight years before. Carl has the backing of a dangerous religious cult in his bid to take custody.
Can Alcina save Tim, even with the help of her bizarre, intriguing visitor? Can Markus save his world with the aid of this alien enchantress and what of the bond that grows between them? Can even love triumph when you are Worlds Apart?
Markus follows an Egyptian Path and Alcina a Celtic one.

All my work has some Pagan elements though if religion isn't pertinent to the story it is treated that the character just happens to be Pagan and no real fuss is made of it. If you want to find out more you can check out my works at www.stephenpearl.com.

The Merry Gentry books by Laurel K. Hamilton are very Wiccan in nature with Celtic overtones.
