I heartily recommend S.M. Stirling's "Dies the Fire" series (half of the characters are wiccans).

I also enjoyed Harry Harrison's "Hammer and the Cross" series. A "what if..." story about the norse invasion of England and the creation of the Danelaw.  Chock full of Gods, Asatruar symbology, Wyrd and Orlog.  Good fun.   

Interestingly enough Robert Heinlein's "Job: A Comedy of Justice" is a study in comparative religion, touching on what I can only assume is a strange elemental version of paganism (witches who worship fire), and a major character that comes from an Asatruar type culture.  NOTE: if heavy doses of Christianity make you gag, you might want to avoid this one, for all that Heinlein uses the story to rail against the inherent daftness of the religion

As noted earlier, Bradley, Duane, Pratchet and Kurtz are on the manditory list, Pratchet if only to instill the ability to laugh at your own belief system.  Also while not strictly Pagan, both Kim Harrison's Rachel Morgan series and Jim Butcher's Dresden Files are outstanding Sci-Fi of a magical bent if somewhat Hard-Boiled/Film Noir.

The man who stands at a strange threshold, should be cautious before he cross it.
Glance this way and that, who knows beforehand what foes may sit, awaiting him in the hall.

-Hávámal verse 1

I'm rather surprised that nobody has mentioned Kate Forsyth's Witches of Eileanan series yet. VERY Wicca-inspired, with great storytelling. I highly recommend her books.
