Description

UK: Scarlet Imprint, Vernal Equinox 2013. Limited Edition Hardcover. 8vo. vi + 182pp. Strikingly bound in heavy black linen with white lettering to spine and white dove design imprinted on upper board (the dove design on the upper cover is said to have a hidden meaning which is revealed in the reading of the text), matching white printed black art paper dust jacket, textured dove grey endpapers. B&W illustrations, bibliography and index. Of the Doves edition, limited to 1,000 hand-numbered copies. The author's vision and a revelation of the mytho-poetic structure of the Art. Peter Grey gives a compelling and profound account of the Sabbat and Wild Hunt, the core of the ritual practice, as living experiences. Dream, lunar and, critically, menstrual magic are explored as a path to this knowledge. The wolf, the Devil, and the Goddess of witchcraft are then encountered in a landscape that ultimately reveals the witch to her or himself. Alternating between polemic, poetic and ecstatic prose, an harmonious course is revealed in a sequence of elegant stratagems. The book is threaded together with a cycle of hymns to Inanna, pearls on the tapestry of night. Seemingly disparate aspects are joined into a vision which is neither afraid of blessing nor curse. Grey offers a renewed sense of purpose and meaning for a witchcraft that has seen many of its treasured ideas about itself destroyed. An apocalyptic age demands an Apocalyptic Witchcraft, and this is a book which is offered up to revolutionise the body of the craft, a way out of the dark impasse. Apocalyptic Witchcraft does not seek to impose an orthodoxy on what is the heresy of heresies. Instead, it suggests a way forward. It span from pre-history, through the witch-panic and it emerges fully fledged into our present moment of crisis. It offers a witchcraft for our time. This is neither a how-to book, nor a history, rather it is a magical vision of the Art in its entirety. Chapter headings are: Exordium; Apocalyptic Witchcraft; A Manifesto of Apocalyptic Witchcraft; She is Without; The Cup, the Cross and the Cave; A Spell to Awaken England; The Scaffold of Lightning; The Children that are Hidden Away; A Wolf sent Forth to Snatch away a Lamb; Fifteen; Hic Rhodus, Hic Salta!
