Interviews & Essays

The end of October is one of my favorite times of the year. Here in Minnesota the leaves have turned from green to yellow, orange and red, and blown to the ground, leaving bare trees silhouetted against the autumn sky. The air, as if sighing in relief from relentless summer heat, has turned to blustery chill. And it's time for one of the most fun holidays of the year, Halloween.

There are two aspects to this holiday, the ancient spiritual traditions and the fun and silliness. Someone may jump out and yell, "Boo!" but the shrieks of surprise and fear turn into shrieks of laughter. All of this is covered in Silver RavenWolf's book Halloween.

Whether you are eight or one-hundred-and-eight, you're going to love this book. If you are interested in the spiritual and historic side of Halloween, you'll find the history and lore of the holiday in these pages, including how the modern traditions evolved from the ancient ones.

And if you're into fun, you'll find it here, too. There are all sorts of easy divinations to find out what the future will bring. You can do them with common items like a bowl of water or the pumpkin seeds from the jack-o'-lantern you carved. The book also gives recipes you can make, including Angel's Dreams and Wishes Pumpkin, Witches' Flying Mix and Sugar Snakes in Graveyard Dust. They're all tasty, easy-to-make, and delicious.

Also included are spells for doing Halloween magick. You'll find love spells and protection spells, house blessing spells, prosperity spells and many more. On a serious note, you'll see how there is a long tradition of honoring the departed on this night of the year. You'll be able to perform these rituals, too.

This is the most complete book ever on Halloween, and I think it is perfect of families and individuals alike.

    Please PLEASE don't waste your time

    Amazing! Silver can write something as wonderful as her Solitary Witch book and then something so trivial as this book. If you have elementary children at home - buy it! It's good for them to have a good chuckle at the information in there. That's about all that this is worth. Sorry all you SRW fans.

    Awesome book by an awesome author!

    I had to get this book since Halloween is my favorite holiday and I love Silver Ravenwolf's writing. I wasn't disappointed at all! This book was awesome! She touches on everything to do with Halloween and thoroughly explains everything. It was just like sitting down and talking with her face to face. Excellent book!

    A marvelous piece for those with the Halloween spirit!

    I ordered this book a month before Samhain, also called 'All Hallow's Even' or 'Halloween', and I couldn't believe how much useful material I found within it. I read it in days, too excited to stop. Then I read it again, and noted all the activites, spells, and crafts I'd like to do for the Halloween season. I HIGHLY recommend this book for anyone that enjoys the one night of the dead!

    A book for Silver's fans

    Well, Silver has another book out. From what other Wiccans say, her facts are debatable and usually twisted to her liking. I read the book. I thought is was enjoyable. Once again, the book is more of a spell book than anything else. I don't like her because of her bashing on other religions (i.e. Teen Witch and To Ride a Silver Broomstick)
