The definitive magic reference book for Witches, Wiccans and all devotees of the magical arts.

Sales Handles:

* Today there are many books of spells for specific needs and occasions for the practising Wiccan/witch, but no comprehensive and inclusive magic reference book exists.

* This is the magical equivalent of a prize and inspirational cookbook: nothing is too basic to be explained and yet sophisticated tastes as well as emergency situations are catered for.

* The book goes beyond merely the Wiccan tradition to include a multitude of eastern and western magical traditions whilst fulfilling the archetypal fantasy of the grand grimoire (master spell book).

* From Merlin and Grimm's fairytales, to Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and Disney's Sorcerer's Apprentice, plus countless other fantasy stories, the master spell book has a place in our collective imagination. This book is that fantasy made real.
