Thomm Quackenbush would be the first to tell you that he thinks Paganism seems silly from the outside, but he also confesses an abiding love for the inner fire it has stoked in him. Through a series of essays, he confronts social anxiety, creativity, masculinity, predators, maturity, romantic love, divination, and more in his trademark irreverent, intimate style. He balances the sacred with the profane, providing an insiderís look at an alternative religion that is maligned and parodied, but often misunderstood.
Thomm Quackenbush is an author and teacher in the Hudson Valley. Double Dragon publishes four novels in his Night's Dream series (We Shadows, Danse Macabre, and Artificial Gods, and Flies to Wanton Boys). He has sold jewelry in Victorian England, confused children as a mad scientist, filed away more books than anyone has ever read, and tried to inspire the learning disabled and gifted. He is capable of crossing one eye, raising one eyebrow, and once accidentally groped a ghost. When not writing, he can be found biking, hiking the Adirondacks, grazing on snacks at art openings, and keeping a straight face when listening to people tell him they are in touch with 164 species of interstellar beings.
