I've just caught up with the news that Isaac Bonewits, an influential American pagan writer and teacher, has died.
He was diagnosed with cancer on October 25 last year, but sadly lost his fight against the disease yesterday, August 9.
I never met Isaac Bonewits in person, but I really liked his book Bonewits' Essential Guide to Witchcraft and Wicca: Rituals, Beliefs and Origins, which I reviewed on my blog a couple of years ago. He left a lovely comment on my post - and seemed a really nice guy as well as extremely knowledgeable.
He will be missed.
