My review of In the Cards by Marjorie G. Jones

I love a good occult detective story (obviously) and In the Cards by Marjorie G. Jones delivers. This being her first novel, Jones is to be be forgiven for some overtly purple prose. She paints an elegant and sophisticated picture, and she is well-versed in the protagonist of this thriller — Frances Yates. Yates was…

Our Trip to Rosslyn Chapel is Old Enough to Vote

March 26, 2001 We got up early and walked through a light mist and boarded a bus that set out across the Scottish countryside. When Kim and I first made plans to travel to Scotland there was one special destination that was at the very top of our “must see” list. We were excited and…

Occult Detective RPG Update

I had planned to launch the Occult Detective RPG on May 1. That date now looks a tad bit too optimistic. I’m having surgery in April and that’s going to gravely affect my productivity, so, rather than rush the project (or worse, try to complete it in a medicated state) I am going to postpone…

Volunteering

I’m looking to volunteer with a ghost hunting group in my area but I am not having much luck in finding one. I live in Central Florida right between Tampa and Orlando. I’ve checked online but found just dead websites. Anyone have suggestions? submitted by /u/the_punisher_iv [link] [comments] Tweet

My thoughts on Water Witchcraft by Annwyn Avalon

I was rather pleasantly surprised by Annwyn Avalon’s Water Witchcraft: Magic and Lore from the Celtic Tradition. Maybe the book caught me in a good mood, or maybe it just appealed to my Piscean nature, but for a someone new to the craft, it’s pretty thorough and has a voice that will appeal to most…
