Thank you to Grey Townsend for the amazing, swift, and GORGEOUS work on the covers and interior illustration. Thank you to Nagasiva Yronwode for helping in every way.

We are accepting pre-orders -- if you are okay with waiting. We really appreciate pre-orders, because they help us with financing special little books like this. The SKU is BOO-GRI-BAWM and the cost is 9.00 plus our standard shipping (which is admittedly high, because most orders are very heavy, due to glass bottles). It will be listed at Amazon, with a lower shipping rate, in early January.

Thanks for the pre-orders, friends!

Over on Facebook, folks are both excited about this book and also telling me that they already have a copy of one of the earlier editions ....

Well, you may THINK you have it ... but you are in for a big surprise. No matter which of the various editions you have, there will only be between 30 and 35 spells in your copy. But if you were to assemble ALL of the editions and eliminate duplicate spells, there would be more than 50 spells! -- 53 in this edition, to be exact.

It's a hard sell to explain to people why they might want to purchase "a second copy" of this famous grimoire of folk-magic, because everyone thinks they already have the book -- but they've got only a part of the puzzle. Trust me on this one. I would not have spent 5 months on it if i did not think it was worth the effort.

The Chronological Bibliography, included on page 96 of the book, tells the story of what i have done.

Well, that is interesting. I actually posses two of the editions you have listed above. I never read them closely enough to notice how different they were. After scanning over your bibliography, I found my copies, opened them up and compared them. Apparently I own the Fulton Religious Supply edition and the Attributed edition. The latter I recall buying via mail-order from Tyrad, which was, as I recall, a part of Marlar, or vice versa. Fascinating!

I think I shall order a copy of the new Genuine edition when it is available at Amazon (sorry; their shipping prices are lower than yours), and I sincerely hope that it will be the last copy of this charming and highly useful grimoire I shall ever need.

Thank you for your scholarship.
