Paul Huson’s Mastering Witchcraft

If you were only to own one book on the practice of Witchcraft (not the religion of Wicca) Paul Huson’s Mastering Witchcraft is the reference you wold want. Not for the faint of heart and definitely un-fluffy this book is a grimoire unto itself and you could legitimately build your practice just around the information in these pages.

Huson’s Witchcraft is sort of a Paganization of a very simplified (and effective) Ceremonial Magic. There is a religious position taken in the book which may be uncomfortable for modern Neo-Pagans in certain respects and will offend Christians but for the Witch or Warlock interested in the practice of Witchcraft there is no better introduction or reference. One of the few books I’ve read that contains effective curses and bindings and it even has a section on running a coven, though the covens here are not your Wiccan covens of today.

It is currently available online but like all such things it will likely be removed once some publisher realizes they’re losing money. Get a copy from Amazon if the Scribd version is taken down, or if you want to support a great author. Like many online text this one is lousy with affiliate links so if the thought of some tool uploading Huson’s work as a scheme to make money offends you scroll through the document, don’t click the links:
