The Language of the Corpse - Cody Dickerson
This sought-after work from Three Hands Press is a study of cadavers (dead bodies) in Germanic and Icelandic sorcery. Dickerson draws together a wide range of strands from folklore, funerary practices and sorcery traditions from the British Isles and Europe, to show the ways in which magicians valued and worked with the bodies of the dead. In the course of the book one learns a great deal about everything from how magicians used and cared for physical remains, to belief in revenants, to the actual practices of necromancy.
