Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The Spirit Book, the latest in Wicca Buckland's extensive occult oeuvre (Buckland's Book of Spirit Communications), cuts a wide swath through the history of spiritualism, its precursors, and widely related supernatural subjects. More than 500 alphabetically arranged entries cover topics (e.g., dowsing), terminology (e.g., astral body), and biographies of famous and infamous trance mediums (e.g., Edgar Cayce), occultists, and fraud chasers (e.g., Harry Houdini); there are bolded cross references to other sections, and citations-often to other Buckland titles-end each entry. Without a narrative, it is difficult to get a sense of the time frames and interconnectedness of the players. Buckland also indulges in a bit of name-dropping, and his biases regarding who is a fake and who is not are evident. Still, the format allows readers to jump to topics of their own interest, and overall Buckland does a credible job of referencing the various mediums, psychics, and channelers. Bottom Line There is nothing else quite like this resource on the market. A huge resource bibliography, great indexing, and Buckland's name recommend it for public libraries with an active parapsychology community.-Janet Tapper, Western States Chiropractic Coll.
