Cover for THE SONG OF AN EMERALD DOVE

THE SONG OF AN EMERALD DOVE
Xanna Vinson

 

Terrorism. Nuclear weapons. Genocide. Biological warfare.

Isn't it time that ordinary women stopped feeling powerless to change the murderous course of world politics? Wouldn't it be nice to read about heroines who find powers deep within themselves, building connections with ancient forces and the soul of the Earth itself, and triumphing over a life-threatening superior force?

The Song of an Emerald Dove won the 2007 Coalition of Visionary Resources (COVR) People's Choice Best New Book Award at INATS East in Orlando.

THE OLD POWER RETURNS
Morven Westfield

With Spring, the tides of the universe grow stronger.

The sap from the trees runs again, and life stirs again— but it’s all life: physical, mental, psychic... good, evil.

Yes, the old power returns, but the power, like the tides themselves, can also be for good or evil.

The Old Power Returns is the standalone sequel to Morven Westfield's Darksome Thirst. Alicia and Meg meet again and discover that the saga of Wesley and Frederick is not yet over. Something doesn't feel right, and as Meg's— or should we say, Matricaria's— coven prepares for the upcoming season of growth and light, they discover that something very dark is lurking.

Can Alicia, logic-worshipping proto-geek, stave off the vampire? Will Evan's congee burn in the pan? And what of the "Wizard of Westville"?

"Morven Westfield has an insider's feel for the occult and witchcraft. You can almost smell the incense and see the candles flicker."  Deborah Lipp, author of The Way of Four Spellbook

"Morven Westfield knows her craft— and her Craft! Following on the heels of Darksome Thirst, The Old Power Returns is set among Wiccans and technology workers outside Boston in the early '80s. Westfield accurately and intriguingly evokes a time when computer programs were stored on tape drives and people with occult interests found each other at the food co-op and through the classifieds, rather than on the Internet. Fast-paced and spooky, the novel follows the Wiccans as they tackle a deadly vampire menace that lurks in bowling alleys and yuppie high-rise apartment complexes." Jane Raeburn, author of Celtic Wicca: Ancient Wisdom for the 21st Century

“A bewitching tale— with bite! In this sequel to Darksome Thirst, Morven Westfield once again weaves a web of spellbinding horror.  A mixed brew of modern witches vs. vampires!  Dark, chilling & suspenseful!” Dave Lowell, author of Ghost Trap

Why Would I Want to Read This Book?

WITCHCRAFT IN YORKSHIRE
Patricia Crowther

Patricia Crowther's Witchcraft in Yorkshire was originally published in the UK in 1973. A small book of the region's lore, this detailed book described customs, legends, spells, and beliefs of the Yorkshire area of the UK.

The book was out of print, but Harvest Shadows Publications has published a limited, numbered edition, in its original format as a small-sized paperback.

The foreword to this new edition puts this book in modern perspective, stating, "The small book you are now holding in your hands was an early effort by one of the first publicly announced practitioners to contribute to a fuller picture of the witch, and of witchcraft. The text provides samplings of how witchcraft and folk-magic manifested themselves, over many years, within the borders of Yorkshire."
