One of the things that I, as owner of Llewellyn, have tried to do is find little-known magical traditions and help keep them alive. Ray T. Malbrough's Charms, Spells & Formulas certainly fills the bill. Better, it is not simply a book by an outside scholar, it is an actual text by a real practitioner. That way, you can learn Hoodoo as part of a living tradition. It's exciting, powerful, and fun!
Many of the ideas of Hoodoo have become part of magical lore. You may have heard of the famous gris-gris bag. Ray not only shows you how to make one, he teaches you how to make them for a wide variety of purposes and then shares traditional rites for charging the bags.
Other traditional Hoodoo techniques include using the magical powers of Bible psalms and special ways to pray to the Catholic saints. You'll learn all about them in this book, and you'll be able to put them to use.
You see, this is not a book about Hoodoo, it is Hoodoo. It captures the very essence of this folk tradition that is true American Magick! By working with it you can become a Hoodoo practitioner. In fact, the last chapter includes wise advice concerning what you need to know to become a better magical worker.
We live in a time where people are abandoning the past. But while it is important to embrace the future, there are many valuable aspects of the past which should be kept and honored for the treasures that they are. This includes our magical traditions. I hope you will learn from the past and create your future. This book can help you do exactly that.

When I started writing The Witch's Broom, I'll... read this article
