Foam of the Past Foam of the Past
MacLeod, Fiona
Skylight Press UK

Fiona Macleod was clearly a gentlelady of breeding and intellect. She was almost 'one of us' - but not quite. It was this slight difference that allowed her to deal with dark and frightening characters and subjects in a way that gave them the glamour of the Celtic Otherworld in an intriguing and believable manner. She opened up a whole new world of language, ancient songs, poems and proverbs that had never before been presented to the English-speaking peoples south of the Scottish Highlands. She...

36 Faces: The History, Astrology and Magic of the Decans 36 Faces: The History, Astrology and Magic of the Decans
Coppock, Austin
Three Hands Press

There is a thread that runs through over four millennia of astrological and magical history, a cord that binds ancient Egypt with the Hellenistic world, the Arabian empire, India, the European Renaissance and even touches the present. That thread is the Decans, a division of the earth’s sky into 36 sections. These 36 'Faces of Heaven' are more than just a curious footnote in the history of archaeo-astronomy. First emerging in ancient Egypt, they have moved with the corpus of Hermetic materia...

The author translated 37 manuscripts books known as “Svartkonstbuchs” (i.e., black art book) which Scandanavian practitioners of folk magic were expected to possess.

Wisht Waters: Aqueous Magica and the Cult of Holy Wells (Occult Monograph No. 5) Wisht Waters: Aqueous Magica and the Cult of Holy Wells (Occult Monograph No. 5)
Gary, Gemma
Three Hands Press

Curse tablets, defixiones, were formed from sheets of lead, inscribed with the ill intent of the curse, and the name of the victim. The tablet would often be rolled, or folded, before being stuck through with a nail; a magical act of defigo; 'pinning down' or 'fixing' one’s will and intent upon the target of one’s work. Such an act is not isolated to malefic working, and is cognate with the 'creative act' and fertility; giving life unto the magician's will. In curse magic howev...
