After eight and a half years of hard work, piecing together bits of history and recollections, Michael Lloyd's book is finally out. Bull of Heaven: The Mythic Life of Eddie Buczynski and the Rise of the New York Pagan is printed and available as a paperback or as a pdf here.
I never knew Eddie personally but I worked for his lover Herman for several years after they'd split up. Eddie was the co-founder of much of what became the Pagan scene in NYC. Lots of people knew and loved him, yet he's been virtually unknown and unsung until now. Michael has poured his heart and soul into this book, tracking down the many, many people (some of whom have passed on while the writing continued) who'd been involved in the early days of the occult movement of the 60s and 70s. There is a rich untold history there, and I can't wait to read this book. And I'm tickled that I got to put my two cents worth in it.
Congratulations Michael, I hope it makes bestseller!
