Subject: The Authors Den Newsletter of Gary R. Varner-May 23, 2005

Greetings and a special welcome to the new subscribers of my periodic newsletter! If you have recently visited my site at Authors Den ( you may be aware that I have recently signed another contract with Algora Publishing for the publication of my next book, The Mythic Forest, the Green Man & The Spirit of Nature. This book, which should be released in the Spring of 2006, is a study of the folklore of trees and forests as well as a study of the Green Man, his history in both the Pagan and Christian world, his contributions to art and architecture, and his appearance around the world—including the United States. The book will include several never before published photographs of the Green Man motif taken in Great Britain and across the United States, from Manhattan to Oregon. I am currently putting the finishing touches on the manuscript before it is sent on to the editors.

Circle Magazine will be publishing one of my articles, “May Day: The Festival of the Trees” in its next issue. This article is shortened version of one of the chapters in The Mythic Forest. Look for reviews of my two newest books, "Water of Life—Water of Death: The Folklore and Mythology of Sacred Water" and "Menhirs, Dolmen and Circles of Stone" in future issues of PanGaia, Circle, Northern Earth, Ancient American, the Druid Network, the Beltane Papers, Spiral Nature and

While I am working on the final draft of The Mythic Forest I am also at work on another book—this one on Native American lore. Titled The Little People, Fairies and Spirit Beings of Native America, this book will be a study of comparative mythology focused on Native American lore that is amazingly similar to folklore found in other areas of the world.

Finally, I have recently become aware that the libraries of the University of Vermont, Williams College in Williamstown, Mass., as well as the Wheeler-Orange Memorial Library of Wheeler, Mass. and North Carolina State University library have added some of my titles to their shelves. If you live near any of these facilities please pay a visit and take a look at my books—in fact check them out! I write them so that they will be read—it really doesn’t matter if you buy them or check out library copies as long as you enjoy them.

As I receive more information about future publications or reviews I will let you know.

If any of you have any questions or comments about my work, or would like to be notified in advance of the publication of The Mythic Forest, the Green Man & the Spirit of Nature, please drop me a note at
