2021: A Retrospective
My favorite newsletters and posts . . .
I ended 2021 thinking about which EP newsletters were my favorites—and of course I couldn’t decide. So in the interests of actually making a list, I decided to limit myself to just five. In no particular order:
Suzanne Treister’s Hexen 2.0, because it amazed me
Haute Tarot, because it delighted me
Tarot Noir, because it surprised me
My Tarot Manifesto, because it’s foundational
Pi Day Tarot, because it was fun to write
But! In order to give myself a little more running room, I came up with these three “special awards”:
Most overstuffed newsletter: A collage that includes the Tarot scene in Have Gun, Will Travel (one of my favorites finds!); a profile of Bill Butler (poet, publisher, activist, and pathbreaking Tarot author); diverse notes on the seminal anthology Wheel of Tarot: A New Revolution; and Lily Stone’s “Tarodelics” deck.
More choices may magically appear on this list, as I continue to revisit some 2021 stories, and connect them with developments in 2022. C
