Doreen Valiente - Where Witchcraft Lives
Doreen Valiente was one of the most respected English witches to have influenced the modern day Pagan movement. In this book, a re-visit of her first literary outing of 1962, she examines Witchcraft in Sussex, the role of the Horned God, hares and the moon, folk-rites and the powers of witchcraft. She is hereby laying the foundations of the modern day Witchcraft move- ment. As Gerald Gardner is now commonly thought of as the 'Father' of contemporary Witchcraft, so Doreen is known affectionately as the 'Mother of Modern Witchcraft'.
M. Leighton - Wiccan
Where does evil live? Is it in the heart? Or in the blood? Nearly-nineteen year old Mercy Holloway has a gift. Long ago murders play out right before her eyes when she passes over a place of death, but Mercy never thought that her unusual ability would interfere with her having a normal college experience. Until today, that is. On her way to school, Mercy witnesses another murder—only this one’s different. And Mercy’s the only one who can do anything about it. Out of time and out of options, Mercy takes what little information she has to the police where she meets Detective Caleb Grayson. Grayson doesn’t necessarily believe Mercy, he’s just better at hiding his feelings than most. It’s not long, however, before Grayson has no choice but to believe her. As the two embark on a mission to solve a murder, Mercy starts having more visions. Only these contain messages. And they’re meant for her. This powerful, evil killer knows things about Mercy that she didn’t even know herself, things she never wanted to find out. Body by body, Mercy discovers that her gift is not a gift at all, but a curse. And it’s one she can’t escape. It runs in her veins. Can Mercy and Grayson catch a killer and capture love? Or are they destined to fail…at both?

Doreen Valiente - Witchcraft for Tomorrow
Answering many of the most frequently asked questions about witchcraft, such as How can I find a witches' coven? and How can I become a witch?, Doreen Valiente explains what the old religion of witchcraft has to offer the new age of Aquarius, how the age-old Craft of the Wise can be practiced in the modern world, and how to initiate yourself as a witch and found your own coven. The leading figure in the establishment of the modern Wiccan movement, Valiente includes here a new Book of Shadows - the witches' handbook of rituals and instructions - based upon ancient magical tradition, but geared to the age of the future. There are witch songs, spells, incantations, and practical advice on how to run a coven and how to acquire your own collection of magical implements; as well as methods of divination and other witch lore. The author shows how oral witchcraft traditions throw light not only upon the origins of the present-day witch cult and the activities of the witch leader George Pickingill and his covens, but also upon the mystery of the founding of the famous magical order, the Golden Dawn. Also discussed is the relationship between European witchcraft and the magical belief of the Far East. Do both traditions hark back to the legendary city of Shamballah and to the shamanistic practices of Asia? And why do the secret circles of the witches resemble those of the Tantric sex-magic of India?
Morgana Sythove - Beyond the Broomstick
Mention witchcraft, and the images conjured up are more often than not still the mediaeval view of broomsticks, black cats, hobgoblins and halloween. Morgana is a Wiccan High Priestess of high repute and has led a Wiccan coven in Holland for 30 years. Her book intends to debunk these views by offering a glimpse beyond the broomstick to the philosophies of the religion. Basically, she says, the Old Religion, or Wicca, is a nature religion, and like nature itself, the religion adapts and grows, yet retains its higher philosophy. Above all, the Old Religion is a mystery religion.
