BOOK REVIEW - The Witches' Almanac Issue 28 Spring 2009 to Spring

The Witches' Almanac Issue 28 Spring 2009 to Spring 2010 © 2008 The
Witches' Almanac, Ltd. ISBN: 978-0-9773703-44 152 pages Paperback $11.95
(U.S.)

Once again The Witches' Almanac landed in my mailbox and I looked
forward to learning a lot of new, interesting items. The theme for this
year is plant lore (next year's is "Animals Great and Small"), so you
can expect to find article on everything from papyrus to olives to
mandrakes.

It is not limited to plant lore, however, as you will find articles on
deities (Asclepius), magicians (Roger Bacon), and assorted other topics
as well. There is even an interview with Hans Holzer. At $11.95 it is
reasonably priced and continues their tradition of giving good value for
the price.

Every year there are topics both familiar and exotic; ones which open up
new avenues to be explored and ones which tie together disparate bits of
information which have been knocking around my mind without having found
a connection.

As is normal in almanacs, it is the articles which produce the big draw
every year. However, this almanac was evolved over the years of its
existence from a merely serviceable source of ideas and basic
astronomical information into a glossy-covered, well-produced annual
book. Nowadays when you see it, your eyes are drawn to the cover, THEN
you get drawn in by the contents.

I heartily recommend that you pick up a copy of this almanac. Even
though I don't agree with everything in it (I never do), I cannot find a
single objection to it which doesn't boil down to personal bias on my part.
