“Colossal. All the inventiveness and brilliance that characterized THE COLLECTOR .. magnificently written … hard to stop reading.” – New York Review of Books

Robert Neill – Witchfire At Lammas (Arrow, 1979)

 

Blurb
1715. Queen Anne is dead and the German King George reigns over England. Throughout the country, Jacobite support is stirring and in a village at the foot of the Pennines, loyalty to the ‘true King across the water’ is strong.

Into a community seething with superstition and mistrust comes young Celia Bancroft, well-bred, educated and talented. But her mysterious talents lie in the dark realms of witchcraft, amulets and incantations.

At a time when unrest and the lust for blood run high, the forces of white and black magic begin a power struggle that culminates in a chilling and macabre climax.

BACK FROM THE DEAD (AGAIN)

It seems like AGES since i had anything to stick up – been busy on Vault because we’re so happening – so here’s a mixed bag of witchy bits and bobs, a few album covers (for no other reason than they’re two of my favourites) , a rare glimpse of lesbian dracula in action, a sneak prieview of Gregory Pendennis’s forthcoming best seller … followed by what must surely be the most boring cover for a witchcraft paperback i have ever set disbelieving eyes on.

for your pleasure, as ever

love
