Chaos & Sorcery
BeschreibungPreface of Peter J. Carroll: The Chaos Current has recently
spawned a number of excellent grimoires by practical sorcerers who write from
hardwon experience. This book must rank amongst the best of them.
I have had the honour of knowing and working with Nick Hall for some years and I

Having conjured with Nick on many occasions, I would not relish the prospect of

pick up a wand for a change. All it takes is guts and imagination, not much
specialist knowledge is required.
