Book Announcement: To Be Released by Pendraig Publishing on Midsummer 2010:
“THE RESURRECTION OF THE MEADOW”
A Grimoire by Robin Artisson, occult writer of note, Hedge-crosser, wortcunning Doctor of Fayerie spirits, and loyalist of the Undying Court and its Queen.
"The Resurrection of the Meadow" is described by the author as "A Record of Thirteen Occult Formulas & Charms of Art with Purport & A Sealing Conjuration & their many useful Sorcerous Permutations, Writ & Gathered on Walpurgis Night 2010, For those Inquisitive Adepts who walk The despised path of True Sorcery, The long-dimmed radiance of the Ancient Gold of the Wise."
Found within this full, self-contained working grimoire is a system of sorcery relying on the ancient spiritual aesthetic of the Faery-Faith and the Metaphysics of Elfhame- interaction with the Unseen world through the vehicle of the spirit-forms or the fetch-bodies of non-human persons that are merged with the land around us. Steeped in folklore and a much older form of deep ecology, it is a powerful work of Art for the discerning occultist.
The grimoire contains, among other things, full instructions for sealing and protecting the "Meadow" or sanctified outdoors locations, the "Feery Feast", the manifesting of the powerful "Weird of the Cairn", the creation of sacred interaction-points with the "Convocation of the Meadow" or Land-spirits, various Crossings, arboreal workings for harvesting and gathering sorcerous components from tree and plant weirds, charms of increase and fertility, and the creation of the fearful "White Mommet" for works of sympathetic magic. Also included are detailed instructions for creating "sorcerous concentration" or opening the "Senses of Luminosity", and the use of the "Nine Doors Under the Hill" charm for projecting the personal fetch-body into the Unseen.

For those of you looking for a tiny preview, look at the post below this one, which contains a poem entitled (like the book from which it is drawn) "The Resurrection of the Meadow." That poem is from my new book. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it.
