A Field Guide to Otherkin|
A Field Guide to Otherkin
Author: Lupa [a Witchvox Sponsor]
Publisher: Immanion Press/Megalithica Books
Category: Otherkin/mythology/subcultures Level: All
The Otherkin community is a small but growing subculture of
people who identify in some way--spiritually, metaphorically, etc.--as
Other than human. Some resonate with dragons, while others believe they
were elves in another life, and still others identify as wolves, great
cats, and other animals.
Of course, this all may seem a little odd to those who aren't Otherkin.
What do Otherkin believe? Why do we believe these things? How does being
Otherkin affect how we relate to the world around us--and ourselves? A
Field Guide to Otherkin offers answers straight from over 100 survey
respondents, collected by Lupa, herself a wolf therianthrope, and
elaborated upon by her.
A Field Guide to Otherkin is designed to inform both Otherkin and
non-Otherkin about the community and the people and beliefs that create it.
Rather than being a collection of statistics, it is a look into the lives
of Otherkin, qualitative rather than quantitative.
From the Author
I am a lupine therianthrope; I've been Awakened to that about
as long as I've been pagan (a little over a decade) . For years I'd seen
people posting to listserves and message boards, "Hey, will you fill out my
survey? I'm writing a book on Otherkin!" No book ever materialized, other
than a couple on specific types of 'kin. So when I was looking for a book
idea after I finished "Fang and Fur, Blood and Bone", I decided I was going
to write that book on Otherkin.
A year and a half later (as of March 2007) ths is the result. It wasn't an
easy project, but it was fun, and I learned a lot. It's not the do-all and
end-all of the Otherkin subculture; no single book can have everything. But
it's an introduction to the community, and I hope you enjoy it!
