Read full description of the books The Encyclopedia of Witches and Witchcraft:I'm a die hard fan of this woman. I don't even care that her books are hella expensive. I really don't. Frankly, I have yet to find another author quite like her. The book is exactly what it sounds like, an encyclopedia of all things witches. You're not going to find specific spells, rites, etc.-- this is much more about the history of witchcraft than help practicing it. She does cover "witch-related" events, too, like haunting and such. And the information in this paranormal encyclopedia is organized. Very organized.
I do think she did her absolute best to collect a wealth of material. I think she did a fantastic job. I can't say there is another, more useful book (on the same subject) on my shelves. That being said, the pictures are in black and white, and they aren't awe-inspiring.
Otherwise, you'll find just about anything your heart desires in this book. That being said, you do have to know HOW to look. You're not going to find what you're looking for by just skimming through the book--there's too much content for that inane twittery. You're going to have to actually spend sometime searching the index and reading through various entries to find the exact information you're looking for. Now, I do write witches for the most part, but I can't say that I've used this book for much more than historical reference material just yet. I do think that has to do with the fact that there is so much "witch-related" content in here, rather than different types of witches. If it were the latter, I could see myself using this book a little bit more than I actually do.
I did order this one from Amazon, but I ordered it "used" to help cut the cost down. Either way, like I said, I love this author and would probably follow her supernatural ass to the grave.
