The Dork in the Torc




Here in Paganistan, we're heading into our ninth consecutive day of 90-degree heat. Air conditioning being for the weak (or at least the terminally un-stubborn), it's too hot and thick to do anything, including think.

So, something mindless instead. What follows is a list of pagan kid's books that we can all devoutly hope will never be written.


The Dork in the Torc

Expelled from his own time by Druidic magic, ancient Britain's geekiest warrior creates havoc in a modern pagan household.


The Orc in the Torc

A youthful Aragorn son of Arathorn sets out to retrieve an heirloom of power from the most dreaded goblin-chieftain of all.


The Bork in the Torc

How Ronald Reagan's favorite anti-environment judge discovered paganism and became the US's foremost legal eco-warrior.


Le Porque en le Torque

The Dun of the Pigs is under siege by the XIV Legion. Can Asterix rally the animals of Gaul to save it?


The Cork in the Torc

Ancient Celtic warriors regularly went into battle naked. So how did they keep hydrated?

How an unknown Halstatt goldsmith solved the problem.


The Orca in the Torca

It's Roman whale vs. Celtic killer whale in this unforgettable epic of maritime love and war.


The Mork in the Torc

How everyone's favorite 1970s space alien discovered paganism.



OK, weather notwithstanding, I'm (gods, how I love being able to say this) off to help raise a standing stone.

Wish us luck!

Poet, scholar and storyteller Steven Posch was raised in the hardwood forests of western Pennsylvania by white-tailed deer. (That's the story, anyway.) He emigrated to Paganistan in 1979 and by sheer dint of personality has become one of Lake Country's foremost men-in-black. He is current keeper of the Minnesota Ooser.
