Leonora Carrington @Treadwells: 1 Aug 2019

How are you spending Lammas? You could be in London listening to me wax rhapsodic about Leonora Carrington and The Hearing Trumpet! Yes, following up on my all-too-brief presentation at the Magickal Women Conference, I will have the opportunity to say much more about both this wonderful artist and her transformative novel. Gracious thanks to Treadwell’s…

Magickal Women Conference 2019

The Magickal Women Conference, exactly as advertised: a fantastic day! The only fault I would bring up is that there was just too much wonderful stuff to see it all.

Popular Occulture Write-Up

It was great to get to Glasgow and see Jay! And of course to attend the Popular Occulture in Britain, 1875-1967 workshop, which touched upon many of my interests and current projects. See the full schedule with bios of the presenters here. This is just some quick notes on things that I want to remember:…

The Occult & Popular Social Movements

Today I’ll be in Glasgow to attend a day-long workshop on a topic of interest for several things I’m working on at present including the serial. You can see the full program here. It’s been coordinated by Popular Occulture in Britain, 1875-1947. I expect I will write about it afterward, as usual. If you need…

At the McManus

The Beano takes over museum, but there’s also a portraits show on and of course old favourites — possibly obsessing a little too much about Duncan‘s Riders, but there it is.  

Pre-Order: Inanna’s Ascent
