A number of my books are currently out of print. If I'm lucky I have copies available for those who want to get signed copies directly from me. (Sadly, that does not include The Dali Tarot, one of the most-requested of my back titles.)

A Secret Woman A Secret Woman (2002)

Rachel's first mystery novel introduces homicide investigator Simon Goldtree, who in the course of the novel becomes . . . someone else. Who that is we will let readers discover for themselves. It's still early for the book, but so far reactions have been wonderful.

Burning Sky (1998)
collected short stories

A limited edition collection of twenty-seven short stories, along with notes on issues raised in the stories, and a wonderful introduction by Samuel R. Delaney. Some stories are realist in style (if not necessarily in plot), some are modern versions of fairy tales, and some are outright experimental. Burning Sky was published by Cambrian Publications. Copies are best ordered directly from Cambrian, at

Godmother Night Godmother Night (1996)
Winner of the 1997 World Fantasy Award

Over a dozen images and plot ideas from Grimm's Fairy Tales are woven into a contemporary story about two women, their daughter, and Death, who appears in the novel as a diminutive middle-aged lady named Mother Night. Kirkus Reviews wrote: "It grows inexorably into a magical exploration of the deepest roots of life and death... Tender and disturbing, down-to-earth and wildly inventive."

Soul Forest: 24 Tarot Writings (2011)

In Soul Forest, Rachel Pollack explores questions in what she calls "Wisdom Readings" - working with the Tarot to explore mysteries of our universe and ourselves. Covering topics as lighthearted as the celebration of May Day, and as deep as the shadow of the Holocaust, Rachel's writings use the Tarot as a mirror, a magnifying glass, and as a telescope to view the world.

Going beyond the traditional interpretation of symbols in the cards, Rachel delves deeply into the philosophical, mystical, elemental magic of the Tarot.

Softcover: $24.95

The Forest of Souls: A Walk in the Tarot The Forest of Souls: A Walk in the Tarot (2002)

The book that brought "wisdom readings" to her fans, Rachel feels that this book might be thought of as her Tarot masterpiece and is delighted that it is enjoying a wide circulation. Tarotists and non-Tarotists alike are reading, appreciating - and being moved to tears over - the profound message of freedom that the Tarot grants to us as we explore the depths of ourselves and the big questions which haunt and fascinate us.

The Haindl Tarot: A Reader's Workbook The Haindl Tarot: A Reader's Workbook (1998)

Hermann Haindl's The Haindl Tarot was first published in the 1980s. Its stunning art and deep spirituality made it an immediate favorite. The original publisher commissioned me to write a text for the deck, and I traveled to Germany to live with Hermann and Erica Haindl for several weeks so that we could go over each card. Readers have often said that the resultant two-volume work was indispensable to their ability to understand and use the Haindl cards. Now, for a new edition from a new publisher, I have revised and modernized the entire work.
