Hocus Pocus Postmodernocus!

I can’t imagine who amongst the readers of this blog that I know of would be interested in this book, but I’m so geeked that my friend Pat has published this that I can’t not pimp it. Postmodern Magic: The Art of Magic in the Information Age is a book about magic, the supernatural kind, from the point of view of a postmodernist neo-Hellenic pagan and sometime chaos magician. Learn why magic circles are like parentheses, and how to make up magical symbols for fun and profit.

It’s written more in a personal, “this is what I’ve done, this is what I think, this is why” style than a kind of “here is the Secret Occult Truth from On High” style, though he doesn’t entirely evade that — he does teach college students, after all, so it’d be pretty hard to completely eradicate pontification from his communication. :) It’s a lot of fun to read. Buy it! Support my man Pat!

I’ll let y’all know if I decide to call postmodern spirits from the vasty deep. :)

  1. “I can call postmodern spirits from the vasty deep!”
    “Why, so can I, or so can any man . . . if they buy this book.”
    “Ahh, splendid.”

  2. Cool! I’ll have to check it out. (You must have never noticed the entire bookcase devoted to books about similar topics.) ;-)

  3. Heheheh, you know, after I posted that I thought back and said to myself “Except Tammy…” :)

  4. I am a web author that is reading Mr. Dunn’s book and would very much like to do an interview with him. Please forward my e-mail to him.

  5. Hey, tell Patrick that I got his book a few days ago. I am a Magician and I do love it. Great. And if Xen does get an interview, I’d love to read it. What can I say. This book gives a lot of great results oriented magick. And that’s why I got into it in the first place. So tell him I said thanks.

  6. You bet, I’m forwarding all this stuff to Patrick. :) I was chatting with him on a BBS when this comment came through!

  7. I’m glad that you like the book, Dart. I hope you’ll want to review it on Amazon, and I also hope that you like my next book . . . once I get around to writing it. heh.

  8. Hey, just decided to check back on a whim. Yeah, I’ll leave a review. Should have done so a while back. Just not a habit of mine.

    Any hint on what the next ones about?
