"In a conversationalist tone, magical mad scientist Taylor Ellwood continues to take us through his forte of pop culture magick, but in this book he treads new and valuable ground. "Pop Culture Magic Systems" is not what you would think it would be, but then again, it is, and oh, wait, it kind of is what you may think it is! Confused? Well, in short, this is one of the best books on magic out there for one very big reason. This is a book on magical systems. Yes, I know that a lot of times we see books with the word "system" in the title, and that book walks you through a particular system of magick, but what if there was a book that gave you insight into what was behind all of those systems? Would that pique your interest? If so, this is the book for you." - Bill Duvendack, author of Spirit Relations
"This book continues the exploration of magic in Pop Culture Magick and Pop Culture Magic 2.0 but stands on its own as a description of how to create a magical system. The techniques are aimed at experienced practitioners connecting magic with the stories of our times. How many of us have used the Force, or flicked a wand with a Harry-Potteresque Latin spell? Taylor Ellwood builds on this using the doctrine of correspondences to link pop culture ideas with traditional magical entities. Along the way he articulates the most original perspective on core principles since Isaac Bonewits listed his "Laws" in Real Magic." - Brandy Williams author of Ecstatic Ritual
