History: The 1980s
Time Period: 1980 - 1989
In the 1980s, the Wicca/Paganism movement in the U.S. continued to flourish, with Llewellyn titles such as Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner
by Scott Cunningham
and Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft
by Ray Buckland
leading the way, becoming standard texts for many covens and solitaires.
Llewellyn also expanded into magazine publishing with the purchase in 1988 of FATE Magazine
. First published in 1948 by the legendary Ray Palmer and Curtis B. Fuller, FATE
was the world’s first magazine devoted to exploring paranormal phenomenon and is the longest running periodical of its genre.
