Novel Depicts Real-Life Elizabethan Magick|
Sorcerer: A Novel of Queen Elizabeth's Alchemist
Author: Geoffrey James
Publisher: Grand Mal Press
Category: Magick Level: All
Synopsis: The year is 1584. John Dee, the greatest scholar of his age, has turned from reputable science to forbidden magic. In partnership with a visionary rogue, an ex-nun and a court beauty, he's flees across Europe, dogged by the Inquisition and a relentless assassin. Finally, Dee's magic seems to yield fruit. Angels (or are they demons?) promise to reveal the secret of transmuting lead into gold. There is only one hitch: Dee and his companions must first commit an unforgivable sin.
"The magical adventures of Elizabethan Magus, John Dee, and his brilliant-but-dodgy clairvoyant partner Edward Kelly is arguably the most colorful and bizarre footnote in English history. James brings the story to light with the ease and elegance of a master storyteller who is also intimately familiar with his subject: magic. My highest possible recommendation."
-- Lon Milo Duquette, author of Enochian Vision Magick
"There have been other novels based on the magical adventures of Dr. Dee and Edward Kelley, and some written by magicians themselves, but "Sorcerer" is must read for everyone interested in this strange historic episode. The characters are real, the setting is alive, the story is gripping and the tragedy is classic."
Poke Runyon, Church of Hermetic Sciences
Author's Notes: Some readers may be familiar with my previous non-fictions works: "The Enochian Evocation of John Dee" (Heptangle, Llewellyn and now Weiser) and "Angel Magic" (Llewellyn) . Note that the magic described in this book is NOT fantasy but rather based on how the participants (magus and scryer alike) would have perceived the experience.
