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. :)
