TRENDING TOPIC: Magic and witchcraft are highly sought-after topics right now, especially among millennials and anyone seeking more earth-centric, feminist forms of spirituality.
CROSS-CULTURAL, INTERSECTIONAL APPROACH. By examining traditions from multiple continents, both before and after colonization, this book widens the lens of both historical and practical studies of magic and takes an honest look at the effects of cultural appropriation on the development and transmission of the occult.
AUTHOR PLATFORM: Dickens and Torok have a loyal following of more than 100,000 listeners and high-profile witches who have testified to the transformative power of the conversations they explore. They’ve also had several successful live shows and rituals, and are regulars on both the podcast and witchcraft conference circuits, including Witches Confluence, Witch Fest, the NW Magic Conference, and others.
“Here … we meet the Witch friends we always wanted and find the coven we always wish we had.”
—Amanda Yates Garcia, author of Initiated
“Amy and Risa are the Witches I was missing! Join them and discover powerfully creative yet complicated Witches, whose storied tales were almost lost to time.”
—Jinkx Monsoon, drag artist and winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race
“I have been wishing for a book such as this for ages, and I’m so grateful that Risa Dickens and Amy Torok are the ones to have conjured it. Through their signature brew of scholarship, sensitivity, and bright spirit, these bewitching writers have crafted a tome that honors many brave and brilliant feminine magic-makers. I’m in awe of the trailblazing Witches who are in Missing Witches—as I am of the ones who wrote it.”
—Pam Grossman, author of Waking the Witch and host of The Witch Wave podcast
