Author: Victor H. Anderson

"One of the best is _Thorns of the Blood Rose_ by Victor H. Anderson, nearly blind since birth, yet a High Priest of the Old Religion. This book contains much of Craft lore and symbolism and has been highly praised by members of nearly all Witch traditions."
--Leo Martello, Witchcraft: the Old Religion
"_Thorns_ is a delight for any lover of poetry, Pagan or not... Although not all the poetry is directly Pagan, the poems are of love, death, memory and beauty, and many of them seem to be written for ritual use. The use of Pagan images and metaphors within even the non-Pagan poems makes for enjoyable reading. This would be a nice Yule gift for any poetry lover or Pagan."
--Lady Breid Foxsong, Sacred Hart, Samhain 1989
PRAISE FOR VICTOR ANDERSON:
"Victor was one of my first teachers in the Craft. I will always be grateful for the worlds he opened up for me... He was fierce, passionate, powerful, real. An inspired poet, he was a brilliant creator of myth and liturgy. He was allied spiritually with all the indigenous traditions of the planet; a true shaman."
--Starhawk, author of The Spiral Dance
"My interview with the poet and shaman Victor Anderson...was among the most mysterious of my encounters. His was the only story I heard that was clearly from the land of faery. It was pure poetry."
--Margot Adler, Drawing Down the Moon
"Victor Anderson, the most important exponent of the Feri/Faery Faith in America, is also the person responsible for bringing it to this country. Victor has been a teacher and friend to some of the most influential personalities in the Craft today...The name of Victor Anderson is mentioned with a great deal of reverence, as he is one of the few direct descendants of this ancient faith. He is a keeper of the flame."
--Ellen E. Hopman, People of the Earth (with Lawrence Bond)
"Victor wrote beautifully poetic rituals for the Faerie Tradition. Over the years, a number of remarkable people were trained by Victor... The influence of the shamanic tradition now called 'Feri' has been enormous."
--Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, Grimoire for the Apprentice Wizard
"Victor was a true bard, as evidenced by the beautiful legacy of poetry he infused into the Feri Tradition."
--Witch Eye zine
