Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

Partial list of people I quote or borrow ideas from

Isaac Bonewits • Before - born Philip Emmons Isaac Bonewits, lived 01Oct1949 to 12Aug2010 (60). Founder and Archdruid Emeritus of of Ár nDraíocht Féin: A Druid Fellowship, expert on ancient and modern Druidism, Witchcraft, magic and the occult. Author, public speaker, liturgist, singer and songwriter. For me, his most useful work is the Advanced Bonewits Cult Danger Evaluation Frame.

Stewart Brand - best known as the editor of the Whole Earth Catalog

Joseph Campbell • deceased - born Joseph John Cambell, lived 26Mar1904 to 30Oct1987 (83). “Follow your bliss.” Best known for his work in comparative mythology and comparative religion. Mythololgist, author, lecturer.

Chas S. Clifton - Academic, author, and historian best known for his work in English studies and Pagan studies. Practical and accurate could be considered his watchwords
      Letter from Hardscrabble Creek

Roger Dawson - businessman, professional speaker, negotiation expert
      Power Negotiating Experts

Jen Delyth - creator of my favorite Tree of Lifedesign. She's very good.
      Keltic Designs

Gerald Gardner • deceased - Born Gerald Brosseau Gardner, lived 13Jun1884 to 12Feb1964 (79). Possible founder of Wicca, certainly it’s chief modifier. Popularized modern witchcraft in the United Kingdom. Witch, author, novelist

Howard Gardner - developmental psychologist best known for his theory of multiple intelligences. I found a couple of his assumptions to be off. He mixed gross motor coordination and fine motor coordination. He also left some out. Unfortunately the man is a very dry writer. See Frames of Mind.

Charles F. Golden • Before - United Methodist Bishop, civil rights pioneer, brilliant teacher

Simon R. Green

Terry Goodkind

Temple Grandin

Micheal Harner

Robert Heinlein • Before - born Robert Anson Heinlein, lived 07Jul1907 to 08May1988 (80). “May you live as long as you wish and love as long as you live.” Dean of science fiction writers. Best known for his inspiring science fiction that usually showed a strong engineering bent. Author, libertarian

Zenna Henderson • Before

Napoleon Hill • Before - Lived 26Oct1883 to 08Nov1970. If not the first personal success author, he’s probably the most successful. One of those people who you have heard of even if you don't recognize the name. His writings and ideas were "borrowed" and in some cases bastardized by nearly every self-help author out there. He has a surprisingly effective description of magick and magickal practices, although he doesn't call it that. Author, journalist, salesman, lecturer
