EDGE OF THE CIRCLE BOOKS
IS PROUD TO PRESENT
THE FOLLOWING NEW COLLECTIBLE TITLES



OBEAH:
A Sorcerous Ossuary
By Nicholaj de Mattos Frisvold, cover art by Kyle Fite
Hardcover: 88 pages
Publisher: Hadean Press (September 8, 2013)
List Price: $33.50

FROM THE PUBLISHER:
Of all the Living Traditions, Obeah has remained the most elusive. Whilst Vodou and Santeria have had both academic and occult treatment in tomes widely available to the seeker, Obeah has stayed uncompromisingly rooted as a sorcerous tradition veiled in obscurity. In Obeah: A Sorcerous Ossuary, Nicholaj de Mattos Frisvold teases open this Caribbean mystery and reveals a crooked path into the hidden world of Papa Bones and Sasabonsam with a short monograph concerning the history of this incoherent cult and the ways in which power is bestowed upon and wielded by the Obeahman.

The text includes the Kabalistic Banquette of Lemegeton, the Hypostasis of Abysina Clarissa and the Green Beasts, a Kabalistic Mass for Anima Sola Mayanet, a Call to Papa Bones, a Call to Spirit Guides, a Call to Anima Sola Abysina Clarissa, the Missale Ezekiel Sasabonson or the Conjuration of the Shadow-Self, and the Ritual Reptilica de Anansi, and offers insights into the Obeahman’s special relationship with the spirits of wood, water, and bone.

Time: 7:00 pm
Place: Edge of the Circle
Cost: $10.00

When a fire is burning whether small (like a candle) or large (fireplace, fire pit) we tap into feelings that have existed for eons. When we were gifted with fire by a divine being, humanities life changed forever. When fireworks explode no matter what age, our inner child lights up and is so excited. That inner child is a powerful being, who feels the same excitement when lighting a candle. Candle magick is a great way of empowering oneself, of feeling like we have made a difference in our own life.
Come along with Diana Lynn in this magickal journey into Candle Spells. You will learn how to cast your own candle spells, and have fun in the process.
Diana Lynn of Waning Moon Magick has been helping both herself and others get their wishes for over 30 years.
