currently reading ...

If you have any interest in H.P Blavatsky or Theosophy (or the occult in general), this is an illuminating and well-written account of her life and the people and places that influenced her. I have another lined up after finishing this (by Marion Meade) - should be interesting to see how they compare and if they focus at all on different aspects.

RE. Queries for WITCH HOUSE Submissions

I've had several people contact me via my blog about whether their submissions for Dreams from the Witch House had been safely received.

As blog comments don't necessarily give me the writer's name/pseudonym, or an email address, these queries are hard for me to follow up on.

Please send all queries to: junonite AT gmail DOT COM

There are only a few submission notifications left to send out.
