Praise for "The Witches' Almanac, The Complete Guide to Lunar Harmony":

""The Witches' Almanac," a compendium of history, lore and legend, has had a catalytic effect on the Wiccan resurgence. With an ever-growing circulation, the little book has become the most influential and respected occult publication in the United States."-"East West Journal"

"For many of us who found our way back to the Old Religion in the 1960s, one of the very few guiding lights along the hidden path during those early days of the pagan revival was a little booklet called "The Witches' Almanac," Sometimes it could be found right out in front at a bookstore, next to the cash register, but more often it was to be discovered hidden in a dark corner, ready to reward the determined seeker."-Dan and Pauline Campanelli, "Circles, Groves & Sanctuaries"

"The Witches' Almanac" has been acclaimed for the quality of its art, design and content since its debut in 1971. Clarity and presentation of the moon calendar, astrological predictions of the gifted Dikki-Jo Mullen and sensitive weather forecasts from climatologist Tom C. Lang are special features. And one may find within its pages a host of arcane secrets and spiritual wisdom.

The element of fire, lively and unpredictable, provides a theme for the next edition. From the myth of Prometheus to medieval bonfires and modern candle spells, fire plays a vital role in magic annals. Nordic tales, classical mysticism, Japanese fox lore and the fiery constellations that guide our destinies are highlighted. As always, exciting graphic images and intriguing symbols grace the pages.

"Almanac" devotees will delight in the recently published collection, "WitchesAll," The book derives from the early issues (no longer available) of "The Witches' Almanac," published annually throughout the 1970s. A large, glossy book with cogent text and a wealth of art, it reveals the history of witchcraft in the Western world.
