A New Scott Cunningham Book

Scott Cunningham has a new book due to be released on October 1st of this year, once again published by Llewellyn Books. The manuscript for this book was recently discovered in a battered old manila envelope and was written by Cunningham in the late 70s or early 80s. According to Llewellyn, the new book contains "spells, rituals, invocations and an herbal grimoire, as well as Scott's hand-written notes and hand-drawn symbols, signs and runes."

Scott's books were the very first ones I read when beginning my spiritual path in Wicca and pagan worship, and to this day I still refer to them on a regular basis. His herbal dictionary is indispensable and his incense and oils encyclopedia is also something I could not live without. It's such a shame that such a powerful voice and a gentle, thorough teacher was gone so soon from this plane.

Cuuningham's Book of Shadows: The Path of an American Traditionalist, published by Llewellyn Books, 288 pages, ISBN-13: 9780738719146 is due in stores on October 1, 2009.
