^Nigel Pennick, Pagan Magic of the Northern Tradition (2015, ISBN 1620553902): "The northern English and Scots word warlock, meaning a cunning man or practitioner of spellcraft, is rarely used today except pejoratively. Because dictionaries have given it meanings such as “liar” and “deceiver,” the word has fallen from use."
^Carl McColman, The Complete Idiot's Guide to Paganism (2002, ISBN 002864266X), page 51: 'Words ike "wizard" or "magician" aren't used and especially not "warlock."'
^Hans Holzer, The New Pagans (1972), page 60: "Those who do not know about Wicca, especially the uninformed press, like to refer to a male follower of witchcraft as a warlock. While the term "warlock" is certainly a valid description of a person engaged in pagan rituals, it is never used in Wicca, or 'white' witchcraft."
