So, since contacting Ms. McCoy directly did nothing other than illicit a negative response, I have decided to write another open email.

This time I’m contacting Llewellyn publishing. Their profile page of Ms. McCoy lists her as “part of the Wittan Irish Pagan tradition”.

Their contact us page says “Also, feel free to tell us what you liked, didn’t like, and especially what you would like to see or think would be an excellent addition to our sites.”

As such, if you agree with what I have to say. Let them know. I’ll add the open email to them to the pages on this site as soon as I have it written up.

One Response to “Llewellyn”

    To whom it may concern,

    I am writing to you regarding your profile page for Edain McCoy.

    Allow me to be forthright and honest. I am a staunch opponent of Ms. McCoy’s claims that Witta is Irish. I have gone as far as to set up a website, http://www.stopedainmccoy.com, to highlight the woman’s fraudulent claims.

    On her page, you list her as “part of the Wittan Irish Pagan tradition”. The Wittan tradition is not Irish. It is vaguely based upon the publicly available information about British Traditional Wicca. It displays an ignorance of Irish history and culture, going as far as to claim that the potato was a part of ancient Irish culture. Professor Ronald Hutton will support me on this point, and I have his permission to cite him on Witta being American.

    I was hoping I could get a justification from Llewellyn as to why you publish clearly exploitative, poorly researched, ignorant books as fact.

    Thank you for your time,
