Book Review:
Candle Magick: A Guide for the Novice

Author: J. E. Auer
Trade Paperback, 88 pages
Publisher: Eschaton Productions
Publication date: July 1997
ISBN: 1573531103

I want to state up front for the record that I am not on Eschaton's payroll. ::grin:: I just think they put out good books.

That said. . . .

This is the second book on this subject that I have read in as many months. Unlike the first one, I found Candle Magick useful for more than just making candles. Once again, Eschaton has provided a book that fills a niche.

As the subtitle states, this is a guide for novices at spellcraft. The author starts with the basics -- such subjects as ethics and history -- and smoothly moves into equipment needed and how to set it up. This is a small book -- only 88 pages -- yet it is packed full of information. This is not a cookbook of rituals. Instead it is a tool to teach you how to understand and use the techniques of candle magick.

I admit I did disagree with a couple of statements -- like the use of black candles. But overall, I found it useful and well written. I recommend it.
