Book Review: Pop Culture Magic Systems: How to Create your own System of Pop Culture Magic
Publisher: Megalithica Book from Immanion Press
I enjoy Mr. Ellwood’s style of writing. His writing makes the reader feel he is very approachable. He could easily be a great neighbor to get to know. He has a web presence that also lets you know, that he is available to readers and fans. He is the author of over 20 books.
In this book, the author gives you the complete breakdown of what you need to create your own system of magic from the pop culture that sparks your imagination. He writes of how he wants to help generations to come to work with the stories that fit the current time and the new heroes that current generations are growing up with.
Mr. Ellwood talks about his own work in the Universes of The Legend of Zelda, Harry Potter, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Dragonball Z. He even includes a chant that he has used with the main character from the video game Horizon Zero Dawn. He does this to show that you can use just about any Pop culture genre that appeals to you.
The author goes into great detail explaining what correspondence is and how to work with it in a meaningful way. Mr. Ellwood also has written about the different Principles of Magic. He gives full definitions of each principle and he writes about 11 different principles, this is something that I personally have not seen many authors do. The author has done this because this is a true break down of how to Create a Magic System that will flourish and grow for you in the future.
Mr. Ellwood writes about all the different magical theories that will help anyone be that a pagan fan of a Pop Culture or a witch looking to use her old pantheon spells with a modern twist.
Each chapter of the book that Mr. Ellwood has put his energy into builds on the one before. There is homework of sorts if you care to do it. And he even gives the name of his Facebook group dedicated to Pop Culture Magic. He has some great insights into how to build a system from the stories that speak to you.
