If you got the spare cash, I can't recommend the books from http://scarletimprint.com/ enough. Fantastic independent publishers who are doing great work bringing old traditions to light and not afraid to criticise and reevaluate traditions. Here is an excerpt from one of their titles 'Apocalyptic Witchcraft', it's a manifesto of sorts but it really resonates with the times we find ourselves in.

  1. If the land is poisoned then witchcraft must respond.
  2. It is not our way of life, it is life itself which is under threat.
  3. Witchcraft is our intimate connection to the web of life.
  4. We are Witchcraft.
  5. Our World has forever changed. The trodden paths no longer correspond. Witchcraft thrives in this liminal, lunar, trackless realm.
  6. We are storm, fire and flood.
  7. We will not be denied.
  8. Witchcraft is the recourse of the dispossessed, the powerless, the hungry and the abused. It gives heart and tongue to stones and tress. It wears the rough skin of beasts. It turns on a civilisation that knows the price of everything and the value of nothing.
  9. If you have no price you cannot be bought. If you do not want you cannot be bribed. If you are not frightened you cannot be controlled.
  10. Witchcraft is folk magic, the magic of the people and for the people.
  11. We call an end to the pretence of respectability.
  12. We will not disarm ourselves.
  13. The War is upon us.
  14. Choose then to become a Mask.
  15. Those with nothing left to lose will dare all.
  16. There is one Witchcraft under many names. There is one Grand Sabbat on one mountain. There are many ways to fly. There is no witness present at the Sabbat.
  17. Witchcraft is a force, not an order. Witchcraft is rhizomatic, not hierarchic. Witchcraft defies organisation, not meaning. We simply bear the marks.
  18. Witchcraft is power and possesses this in ekstasis, sex and ordeal.
  19. Witchcraft is unbridled sexuality. In witchcraft it is the woman who initiates. We challenge man to be the equal of this woman.
  20. Witchcraft is the art of inversion.
  21. Witchcraft is the beaut which is terror.
  22. Witchcraft is a myth, which drawing on the past, clothes itself in the symbols of (its) time. Witchcraft does not mistake myths for history, it harnesses them to transform the future. Witchcraft knows the ground upon which it stands.
  23. Witchcraft honours the spirits. Witchcraft enchants for the lost. Witchcraft will not forget.
  24. Witchcraft embodies our ancestors and saints, they carry us with them.
  25. To Her is offered the blood, to use the care of the ask and bones.
  26. The example we follow is our own.
  27. The practice of witchcraft is one of revolution and of the power of woman.
  28. The Goddess who speaks through us is known among men as Babalon.
  29. Witchcraft concerns itself with mystery. Through the gates of mystery we come to knowledge. Knowledge enters us through the body. The highest form of this knowledge is Love.
  30. Every drop of blood is sacrificed to the grail. Love cannot be bought with any other coin.
  31. We seek and drink this wine together.
  32. Will is finite, passion infinitely renewed.
  33. Witchcraft is present, its is ensanguined and vivified. Witchcraft is prescient, it gazes on the future. Witchcraft is oracular, it will not hold its tongue. Our time has come.

Phaemon'sdog here - will do some posting next week - postage on me. Please don't worry about "Mexican hairless seeds" us Queensland country bumpkins just have this idea that same sex Victorians dubstep down to their local shop nude 'cept for tattoos, nonchalantly dodging gangland drive-by bullets, pushing past the street heroin hawkers on Harleys to vending machines that dispense crack, ice and rare seeds...and ain't we jealous!

PS - I think summoning demons in the living room a good idea - the frigid drop in temperature accompanying their manifestation would save air conditioning costs.

PPS - no-one for photos of Pat Uri dancing skyclad?...just imagine a cigar smoking Yowie.
