Fang and Fur, Blood and Bone: A Primal Guide to Animal Magic|
Fang and Fur, Blood and Bone: A Primal Guide to Animal Magic
Author: Lupa . [a Witchvox Sponsor]
Publisher: Immanion Press
Category: Animal magic/totemism/familiars Level: All
Fang and Fur, Blood and Bone is my first published book--but certainly not my last! It is the result of nearly a decade of intense study and practice of animal magics of all sorts. I've also included a guest essay from friend and fellow practitioner, Nicholas Graham, and the artwork will be done by the incredibly talented Jim Towns, somebody who made my stay in Pittsburgh all the better. It's published by Immanion Press, a UK-based publisher of edgy, experimental occult nonfiction and intriguing occult fantasy fiction.
This isn't your average book on the topic, though. My aim was to provide the working magician, regardless of background, with a guidebook to incorporating animal magic into hir practice. This includes everyone from Chaos magicians to totemists to Wiccans, witches and pagans and so on. I wrote it primarily from the viewpoint of an experimental magician, so it tends to be quite straightforward and matter-of-fact. It's certainly not a boring trip, mind you--amid the information I've scattered some of my best anecdotes from my years of practice.
And controversy--oh, there'll be room for controversy! Not only will I be delving into the usual realms of totemism and familiars but also the use of animal parts in magic and a (highly disclaimered) chapter on animal sacrifice. Look for other odds and ends like cryptozoology, pop culture influences, and therianthropy, among much more! I wanted to fill in the blanks I saw in the existing literature on the subject.
