I didn't expect to like the 2003 Wicca Almanac nearly as much as I did. The title alone made me wary. I expected it to be another diatribe on the Wiccan faith, almost completely alienating other forms of Paganism and Witchcraft. What I found instead was a book of (mostly) well-written personal pieces on many different topics.

In total, the book contains twenty-six articles in six different categories. Article topics were of general interest to Pagans, Wiccans, and others of "alternative spirituality". I have articles that I like more than others, but there were none that I distinctly disliked. The majority of the articles seemed to be well-researched with resources listed where applicable.

As much as I liked this book, there were moments at which I was disappointed with it. The title of the book gives a different connotation from what is actually contained within. As much as I enjoy the essays of others, it seems that the groupings were rather loosely formed. There is no sense of connection between the articles. The almanac section was pretty standard (running from Spring 2003 to Spring 2004), but it did include small news articles at the end of each month.

Overall, I did enjoy the 2003 Wicca Almanac. Will I buy it again next year? Probably not. I can find similar articles through discussion groups and other means.
