New Publication: Review of Nevill Drury's "Pathways in Modern Western Magic" in Correspondences 2(1)

The latest issue of Correspondences: An Online Journal for the Academic Study of Western Esotericism (volume 2, number 1) has just been released online thanks to the hard work of its editors, Jimmy Elwing and Aren Roukema (both of whom I interviewed here at Albion Calling back in August 2013). An open access, online peer-reviewed outlet, Correspondences is a really important milestone in the developing field of the academic study of Western esotericism, allowing anyone the opportunity to read it for free. This volume contains research papers from Egil Asprem (whom I interviewed here back in November 2013), Kristopher Noheden, and Mike A. Zuber, and under the guidance of its new book review editor (Dr. Asprem again) it also contains two book reviews, one by J. Christian Geer (which reviews the latest work by Carole M. Cusack, whom I interviewed here back in February 2014) and the other by yours truly!

My review looks at Pathways in Modern Western Magic, a 2012 anthology edited by the late Nevill Drury (whom I interviewed in February 2013), and is available for free here, so please read it if it sounds like it would be of interest to you!  Those with a (fairly) long memory might recall that I published a research paper, "An Elusive Roebuck: Luciferianism and Paganism in Robert Cochrane's Witchcraft", in the first volume of Correspondences, which appeared in June 2013. Hopefully, if all goes to plan, volume 2, number 2, will be with us before the year is out!
