WitchLit is on a summer hiatus while we settle into our new WitchLit HQ and rather than leave a blank space in the feed, we’re taking the old TV network approach and bringing you some summer reruns from our first two seasons.
Today’s rerelease is my conversation with Dr. Alexander Cummins. We talked about a number of his previous books and his then upcoming book Nazarth: Pillars of Gladness or, a Geomancer’s Angelical Psalter of Calls, containing vessels 19 with which to water the earth — because we love the Early Modern full-paragraph book titles. He offers many courses on his website alexandercummins.com and will be presenting at the Salem Witchcraft and Folklore Festival in August. We’ll be back with new episodes beginning next week on August 2.
Original episode show notes: Dr. Cummins and I talk about the academic and the practical in both writing and magic and how to make the academic practical. If you ever wondered what academics on either side of the pond think about magic, you can get an inside scoop here.
