The Witches' Book of the Dead
Author: Christian Day
Category: Witchcraft Level: Advanced
The dead can be powerful allies and helpmates to those who - armed with the proper tools and knowledge – dare to call them back from the grave.
In The Witches’ Book of the Dead, famed modern-day warlock Christian Day reveals the history of necromancy and its long relationship to witchcraft. He provides the intrepid reader with rituals, spells and incantations on how to open the doorway to the spirit world (and how to close it again) , guidance on how to build an ancestral altar, and descriptions of the tools necessary for successful necromancy – as well as where and how to obtain them ethically.
A comprehensive and comprehensible guide to a secretive and powerful practice, The Witches’ Book of the Dead is destined to become an essential resource for any serious magical practitioner.

“Dare to take the ancient journey into the realm of the dead, guided by the necromantic knowledge of the Witches and Warlocks of old. This book is not for the fearful but rather for the sincere seeker of the netherworld in all its truth and dark beauty. Stride now into this dark world with necromantic Warlock Christian Day, who has touched the shadowland and now brings it to you within each and every chapter of this well-researched tome. Begin your journey now!” —Reverend Lori Bruno, Hereditary Strega and High Priestess of Our Lord and Lady of the Trinacrian Rose Church
“Christian Day has stirred up all the ancient lore of Majick and placed it in the hands of his readers. Very well researched.” –Reverend Laurie Cabot, High Priestess of the Cabot Tradition and founder of the Cabot Kent Hermetic Temple
“The Witches' Book of the Dead is a well-researched and thoughtful compendium of magical lore, necromancy, spirit contact, and mediumship. It mixes a rich background of historical information with practical applications of ritual and magical practice. Day is not afraid to draw back the veil and peer behind it. Let him show you what he has discovered! A very good read; a volume full of worthwhile information.”—Raymond Buckland, author of Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft
“Impressively researched, compelling, and immensely readable, Day’s first book resurrects the vast power of the spirit world and offers it to modern-day practitioners.”—Fiona Horne, radio and television personality and author of eight books including Witch: A Magical Journey
“In these pages, you will discover clear, lucid instructions for contacting the dead, as well as explanations for why you might want to do so. While simultaneously emphasizing the sacred nature of his subject, Christian has written a fun, easy-to-read and easy-to-access instructional manual for interaction with the ever-present souls of the dead.”—Judika Illes, author of The Encyclopedia of Spirits, The Encyclopedia of 5000 Spells, The Element Encyclopedia of Witchcraft, and The Weiser Field Guide to Witches

“This book delivers a call back to an often-neglected source of power, wisdom, and guidance: necromancy and communion with the unseen side of humanity.

“Filled with mystery and magick, The Witches' Book of the Dead is deliciously dark, edgy, thought provoking, and beautifully crafted.”—Ellen Dugan, author of Practical Protection Magick
“Christian Day is an amazing resource when it comes to magic and Witchy legend and lore. Day breaks down Witchcraft history, humanizes the folks who have always stood casting and conjuring at the outskirts of society, and then celebrates them like one would cheer a rock star.

For those exploring the serenity of shadow and the deeper levels of Craft, this book is most definitely for you.”--Raven Digitalis, author of Shadow Magick Compendium and Goth Craft
“Christian Day has outdone himself with this rare, beautifully written, brilliant work. If you are tired of reading regurgitated, watered-down 101 books or have found yourself in a place where you wish to delve deeper into the core of the occult, then this is a must read.”—Starrfire Price, founder and webmistress, PaganSpace.net
“You may not agree with all that Day proposes—and you get the sense he’d probably welcome a good intellectual brawl—but you can’t deny that this passionate, personal take on the meaning and practice of magic is thoughtful, bravely-drawn, and fascinating.”—Lesley Bannatyne, author of Halloween Nation: Behind the Scenes of America's Fright Night
“If you're one of those of the living who subscribes to the notion that magick is exclusively about love, light, and life, and death is a subject to be avoided, put this book down.
