In my mailbox: Virginia’s Haunted Historic Triangle

I want to thank Schiffer Publishing ( https://www.schifferbooks.com/ ) and Pamela Kinney ( https://pamelakkinney.com/AboutMe.php ) for the free review copy — you rock. Due to our rainy Florida weather, the poor mailman had to carry this book to my door rather than cram it into the mailbox — no wonder he hates me. I plan to do a video thumb-through of this book soon… BTW, you can see my review of Kinney’s Paranormal Petersburg, Virginia, and the Tri-Cities Area ( link ).

Living Runes: Theory and Practice of Norse Divination

Living Runes: Theory and Practice of Norse Divination by Galina Krasskova My rating: 4 of 5 stars All in all, I really enjoyed Krasskova’s book. I read “The Big Book of Runes and Rune Magic” by Edred Thorsson not that long ago so the material was something that I was familiar with, though I enjoyed Krasskova’s explanations. I guess if I were to put my finger on what I enjoyed the most, I’d have to say the poetry.Her poem for the rune “Gar” ( page 153 ) was powerful and really moved me. I give “Living Runes” a “thumbs up” … Continue reading Living Runes: Theory and Practice of Norse Divination

Top Secret Alien Abduction Files: What the Government Doesn’t Want You to Know by Nick Redfern My rating: 5 of 5 stars Okay, I admit it, I love Redfern’s work. There,now you know my bias, I feel much better. Seriously, I do enjoy his work. Top Secret Alien Abduction Files has that Kolchak The Night Stalker vibe. Even the font used clacks in my mind like an old typewriter.It’s 22 chapters are broken up into nice-sized chunks for easy reading and it has a plump Bibliography to help you with your own research. It’s a perfect read before the new … Continue reading Review: Top Secret Alien Abduction Files: What the Government Doesn’t Want You to Know

Conjuring Harriet “Mama Moses” Tubman and the Spirits of the Underground Railroad by Witchdoctor Utu My rating: 4 of 5 stars I guess that I have to admit that on my first read of Conjuring Harriet “Mama Moses” Tubman and the Spirits of the Underground Railroad I didn’t care for it, but I loved Utu’s coverage of history.

Review: Storytelling Alchemy

Storytelling Alchemy: Write Your Own Happy Ending by Renee Damoiselle My rating: 4 of 5 stars All in all, I thought it was an excellent book. I liked the writing style of the author and more importantly I came away liking the author. That being said, at first, I was uncomfortable with her and her definition of alchemy “a magickal term for transforming lead into gold” page 9. I thought that her definition was too simple and fru fru. I was prepared to dislike the book and found myself quibbling about everything she said. I was letting her words and … Continue reading Review: Storytelling Alchemy
