New from Caduceus Books: The Graveyard Wanderers, The Wise Ones and the Dead in Sweden

Caduceus Books is rapidly selling out its latest book, a collection of Swedish spells collected from the grimoires by Thomas K. Johnson.  Johnson’s massive dissertation with hundreds of pages of incantations was reviewed here previously, and this work collects a number of the charms that deal with the magic of graveyards and the Wise Ones who practiced them.  All of this is in an attractive leatherbound volume with a copper plate on the cover bearing the imprint of a skeletal hand.

I have not read this book yet, but Ben did give me a sneak peek when I met him in London a couple months ago, and it would be an impressive addition to any library.
