US publisher Visible Ink Press is to publish All of Them Witches, a new non-fiction book by Denton-based writer, editor and podcaster Charles Christian. All of Them Witches is an almanac of real witches and sorcerers, along with other practitioners of magic and witchcraft, from earliest times through until the present day, combining both a historical and thematic context, along with relevant biographical entries. Aleister Crowley, yes. Harry Potter, no. The deal was brokered by Christian’s agent, Virginia-based Lisa Hagan of Lisa Hagan Literary Agency and the book is due to be published in 2022.
Christian also has another book coming out later this year (2021) – a heavily delayed by lockdown guide to the Waveney Valley called Haunted Landscapes: The Waveney Valley – Folklore, Ghosts, History, Legends & Other Weirdness. Not just Black Shuck but plenty of Bigods, mistletoe brides, ancient ruins, ley-lines and ghostly airmen. The book is being published by the Heart of Albion Press.
