Come on, if you pick such a fruity "religion" you have to expect some teasing. I just wish we had some Scientologists so you could pick on somebody, too.
I think you are talking about "Goths," there Joe, not Pagans...not Wiccans.

As for teasing, I don't tease people about their religion, no matter what it is or what my opinion of it is. I set this example in hopes others will follow, yourself included.

Now let's get back on topic and talk books now.

Religion is one of the best things to tease people about because it's so irrational and people usually believe in it very strongly but can't explain why or logically defend their beliefs.

Joe until you dig deep enough to understand the three levels of teaching I can understand why you think like you do. Your loss. I bet if you live long enough Pascals Wager might come into play even for a hard ass like you. I am not a door mat Christian. If I do not agree with a religion such as Muslims, Jew or Pagans I will take a stand. I know you need to see the numbers and a test tube before you can believe. A fool in fools paradise.

Anime, have you ever read any Jim Butcher? This is right up you alley.

Lee Child, Stewart Woods, John Sanford, are very good. Jimmy Buffett writes a damn good story. I wish he woould wirte more. My alltime favorite is Lincon Preston who writes with a partner last name Childs. I don't remember his name because when I finish a book I give it away.Hell it may be Preston Childs and Lincoln something.

He has a series of 5 books that sound like your type of stuff. I'm not into wizards or witches but these are very well written and I enjoyed them. It is written in real time and actually believable

I like Graham Hancock, Hal Lindsay, mostly historical/educational....
Anime, are you familiar with the "west memphis three"? (wm3.org) They were wiccans who were unjustly accused of murder, mainly because of their "weirdness"- its an interesting story....

I enjoy Margaret Maron books The Deborah Knott Series. Great books, they are who dunnit books but she is good at hiding the murderer and she throws comedy in with it. I have her whole series. If you like a good mystery try them but get the 1st book of the series first because each book picks up where the other ended. The first book is called Bootlegger's Daughter.

Yeah I've read lots of Robin Cook. Some Jonathan Kellerman. Cornwell is popular, but I've never tried her. Never heard of the other guy.

My feelings too. I don't read much but I like Grisham's southern flare. The only other books I read are reference manuals and trade publications.... (big yawn)

This weekend I read James Lee Burke's A Stained White Radiance. Burke combines Southern themes and real life Louisiana locations in his stories. There are a series of books about Detective Dave Robicheaux, who reminds me of a cajun Alex Cross.
