DESCRIPTION

From the Witch of Endor to Aleister Crowley, from the Satanic feminism of the suffragette era through to the current occult revival, The Summoning Issue delves into the history of witchcraft, magic, and the occult to analyse the impulses behind acts of conjuration: the thirst for forbidden knowledge, the pursuit of liberation, and the desire for wealth, status, and fame.

Spirits or deities, angels or demons. The calling of a supernatural agent may bring power, but also comes with many risks. In these pages, games of cards usher in cloven-footed strangers, runic inscriptions conjure up demons, a communal warning is uttered every Bonfire Night, and the pagan dead rise from ancient barrows.

Hellebore is a collection of writings and essays devoted to folk horror and the themes that inspire it: folklore, myth, history, archaeology, psychogeography, and the occult.

Featuring words by Christine Ferguson, Victoria Anne Pearson, Per Faxneld, Efram Sera-Shriar, John Reppion, Katherine Weikert, Verity Holloway, Matthew Melvin-Koushki, and Francis Young. Artwork by Courtney Brooke (Lightwitch), Ellen Rogers, and Nathaniel Winter-Hébert. Edited by Maria J. Pérez Cuervo.
