Smile Hi all, Smile
I'm new to the world of Bizzare magic and was wondering if there are any books or videos one would suggest. I know there is a lot of info in the forum and I hope to read it all! Smile
Any advice, suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

There are soooo many. A lot of it depends on your style but some that really got me moving in the right direction --

- Lovecraftian Ceremonies by Stephen Minch
- Haunted magic by Rick Maue
- Brain Food by David Parr
- Black Book(s) I and II by Black Hart
- Strange Ceremonies by Eugene Burger

There are of course dozens of great books out there. I like these as an introduction to Bizarre Magic because they are fairly inexpensive and really get you thinking.

Just my two cents worth,

Dave

PTBeast, Thank you for your suggestions!
The last time I was at the magic shop I had the haunted magic book in my hand and I did not pick it up, because I didn't know if it was any good... Looks like I will be making another trip to the local magic shop!
Thanks again

The Book Of Haunted Magic by Rick Maue is a brilliant book whether you’re into bizarre magic or not and it’s excellent value for money. It’s packed with great effects as well as tips on presentation. You won’t regret buying this book.

The Practitioner - Gene Poinc
Capracornian Tales - Christian Chelman

...those are my 2 favorites. I think they are totally appropriate for someone wanting to get a "taste" of Bizarre Magic. Smile

Another book would be "The Arcana of Bizarre Magic" by Jim Magus. It includes some good photos of bizarrists.

Check out [broken link] as a source for bizarre props.

Christian Chelman's website http://www.surnateum.org has great photos of props.

The Inner Circle of Bizarre Magic has a website http://www.icbmmagick.com
The ICBM has a convention in Connecticut in early November every year. I lectured and performed there last month. Check it out for next year.

And then there's Tony 'Doc' Shiels work. I'm a big fan of 'Cantrip Codex'. It's light on effects, but inspiring on the approach one takes to the bizarre. If you want to summon Nessie and a fleet of flying saucers, cause earthquakes, or even alter the weather, then he's your man.

Regards,

Caleb Strange.

Mina,
Bizarre magick like all other forms of magic has its different branches. If you ever get into seance' look for the Book "Seance'" (named from the magazine from which it was born) and also Eugene Burgers "Spirit Theater" which is rich in history of Spiritualism.
Nothing like some good bedtime stories!

The Complete Invocation is my FAVORITE book on the subject. Also, check out Mind, Myth, and Magic. Smile

I just want to welcome Mina into the fold. Your name, alone, shows that you're predestined to be practicing in the Bizarre realm (Dracula is one of my all time favorites).

Have fun,
Neil

P.S. As an introduction to the form, I wholeheartedly second the suggestions of Water's Mind, Myth & Magick, Maue's Book of Haunted Magick, Parr's Brain Food, and Burger's Spirit Theater. Burger's video tape, "Eugene Goes Bizarre," is also great fun (and includes an interview with one of our godfathers, the dearly missed Tony Andruzzi).

Greetings everyone,

I have spent very little time on-line in the past six months due to my schedule, however I am finally taking a short break, so I thought that I would sell hello.

Thanks to those that have said nice things about my Book Of HauntedMagick. Just to let you know, I am in the process of having a very short run of a couple of hundred copies (mostly for my lecture tours), and then HauntedMagick will be going out of print so that I can concentrate on the release of my next book, Occam's Magic.

It may be re-released in a few years, but for now, when the next couple of hundred are gone, that will be it. So if anyone is looking for HauntedMagick, drop me an e-mail at:

decunltd@stargate.net

Take care, and thanks once again.


Keep the change,
Rick Maue
