Yes; I bought it because I liked the title (though not the bizarre cover).
And despite the fact that every time I read it I want to shout "Not ALL
pagans are like that, dammit!", I still like it.  I do find, though, that
it's one of those books (like Robin Hobb's "Assassin" trilogy or just about
anything by Tim Powers) that I have to be in the right mood to read.  I can
read, frex, DWJ, any time, in any mood, but some books I really have to
"feel like" reading.  Does anyone else get this?

Until the sky falls on our heads...
