This looks very interesting, and the cover art is quite intriguing. I have never seen a book on North Asian magic, and know nothing about is, soI will be buying this when it comes out. I liked YIPPIE's "Trolldom" book from a couple of years ago (on Scandinavian magic) and I like the way YIPPIE is publishing these introductions to the folk magic of various cultures. What's next. I wonder -- ?

North Asian Magic by David Shi went to the printers this morning! It is a brand-new look at a culture whose magical traditions run deep and whose geographc region is enormous! If you are a student of world culture and folk magic, North Asian Magic will open your eyes to a world of beliefs, practices, and customs that will blow your mind -- look for it on sale in Mid-May! Thanks to all who helped behind the scenes, including Michele Jackson on illustrations, Grey Townsend on cover design and composition, Nagasiva Yronwode on production, and Charles Porterfield and Papa Newt on proofreading! Huzzah!

This is the second book to be published by YIPPIE as part of our world-wide survey of practical folk-magic spells from various cultures. North Asian Magic is a book that you will find fascinating and eye-opening because of the previously undocumented territory it encompasses — but even more, it is a valuable grimoire ready for you to put to immediate use in your own magical work. Add a little North Asian spice to your spells -- you'll be glad you did! On sale in mid-May!

My family never told me much about their past, but my grandmother did tell me some information about festivals and courtship beliefs. I have never travelled to where they came from, so I thank you for this book on North Asian Magic.

If you don't mind me asking, where does your family come from? North Asia is a very broad region and my book tends to focus on certain areas a bit more than others; in addition to what's in my book, I may be able to help you shed some light on folk practices of your ancestors' region(s).

I ordered North Asian magic a while ago but did not have time to read it until this week. It is a short book filled with folkloric treasures. These spells and rituals are never going to become common magic in America, so thanks to the Yronwode Institution for taking the risk to publish something for a small audience. It is greatly appreciated.
