How time flies when you’re enjoying yourself! The last post was at Samhain and I don’t know where the months have gone, although it does mean that I’ve finished the first draft of Traditional Witchcraft and the Path to the Mysteries – a complex book as its title suggests. I was also invited by Michael Howard (of The Cauldron fame) to contribute to the American Three Hands Press ‘Witchcraft Anthology’ due for publication in June (2014).
Advance Word Concerning Hands of Apostasy
A Witchcraft Anthology from Three Hands Press
Due out Midsummer, 2014
In 2008 I approached Michael Howard, editor of the British witchcraft and folklore journal The Cauldron, about co-editing and producing a witchcraft anthology for Three Hands Press. Given the quiet but potent renaissance that traditional and hereditary witchcraft underwent in the 1990s, we both felt that such a publication was long overdue. At the time, much written about traditional witchcraft was of poor quality, either crudely derivative of a few often-repeated sources, factually inaccurate, or simply plagiaristic. Though this situation persists, readership on this subject has grown increasingly sophisticated and discerning, and a few new voices have emerged from the collective hedge to articulate important and original perspectives on the Craft.
