    Book Review – Medicine of the Imagination: Dwelling in Possibility: An Impassioned Plea for Fearless Imagination by Imelda Almqvist

    Book Review Medicine of the Imagination Dwelling in Possibility An Impassioned Plea for Fearless Imagination by Imelda Almqvist Moon Books 440 Pages     It was with great delight that I received Imelda’s latest book through the post. I’d been looking forward to this day. It was a day that should have come in a forest in Sweden, in June this year, but, alas, the world had other ideas. In August it was there, waiting for me upon returning from a morning’s swim adventures. It hadn’t fit in the post box at the end of our drive, this being a weightier tomb than Imelda’s previous offerings so our post person…

    Book Review – Sucker Punch (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter) by Laurell K. Hamilton

    Book Review Sucker Punch (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter) by Laurell K. Hamilton Berkley 624 Pages     Sucker Punch was the eagerly awaited 27th book in the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter Novels. For those of you who are not familiar with Laurell K. Hamilton, she is an amazing writer of suspense, crime solving, and all things supernatural. In my opinion, one of the reasons she is able to continue to write these novels is that she has created a world in which her characters are “real” to those of us who have been with her all these years. As an avid fan, follower and supporter of this author and her…

    Witch Hunt

      There are witches all around us. You can find them anywhere… The Witch on Wheels has been documenting her findings.   Meet Sinix O’Dair   I met Denis years ago at a pagan discussion group for LGBTQ genuinely kind – kind enough to help this “grandwitch” with computer problems and not to laugh at the shocked look I gave him upon learning he does not cleanse magical items that come into his possession, but rather works with the energy they possess. Be it rhyming a blessing or renovating a multi-family home, he relishes a challenge and his accomplishments never cease to amaze. 1. Do you have a magical name…

    Witch & Popcorn

      Review of Little Evil   Bright Blessings, Film Lovers. I thought I’d do a horror since it’s October- Halloween month! This one is not scary really, but it is a horror comedy. It’s hilarious and deals with theme of evil, cults, and the individual will. Little Evil was released in 2017 and stars the illustrious Clancy Brown, the very funny Adam Scott, and the legendary Sally Field. Here is a trailer so you can see how great this is.     Gary meets the woman of his dreams, Samantha, and after a very short courtship, marries her and moves in with she and her five-year-old son, Lucas. Lucas is…
