The Devil's Dozen - Gemma Gary
13 magical rites from a traditional 'Old Craft' perspective, all centered upon the much-maligned 'Old One' or 'The Devil'. For the author, he is the embodiment of the chaotic powers of nature and quite distinct from the Satan of Christianity. In Gary's portrayal of witch-lore, union with the 'Old One' was an initiatory contact which opened the way for magical power and transformation. These workings aim to produce vision, transformation and illumination towards producing union with this force.
