Not the ones published by Llewellyn or Quantum, I mean these ones, originally started by Elizabeth Pepper, in 1971, the year I was born

I saw a thread in this forum a little while ago about a book called "Witches All" by Elizabeth Pepper, which was a compilation of bits & pieces in previous editions of the Witches Almanac. I liked the book so when I saw the 2009-2010 Almanac in Waterstones bookstore I got it.

 

What a fascinating read ! Lots of historical info, great pictures of woodcuts, work by many different authors etc.

 

There's a website with some other articles & you can order back copies.

LOL, I'm putting this on here but I bet you all knew about it, am I the ONLY person on this board to have missed these little gems ??!!

NO NO NO you're not the only person to have missed it!!!!! I bought one of these about 5 years ago.. how could I have forgotten they exist???? You are not alone Deb.... and I just checked tentatively with my beloved who informed me that actually he has already bought me a witchy diary for Xmas (and it won't be this one!). {{goes off to shed a tear in the corner, in secret LOL}}:sickwitch:

 

Go on.. buy it.. you know you want to!

Thank you. I've tried the others and did not like them. I guess I will have to order this one and give it a go. And no you are not the only one!

I found the Witches All book to be great.. don't have any more of Elizabeth Pepper's publications atm (at least I think..) but I'll check out this site.

 

Thanks Deb! :)

I was given a load of books a while ago and it has the witches almanac 2008, I usualy give Llewelyn a wide birth, I find it very new agey and quite wiccan with all of its goddesses etc. I have not had a really good look through it yet as i did look like the stuff I dont personally bother with.

Finally got mine.....but could have told me it starts in March 09! Now I went and ordered the 08, discounted, and am waiting for that one.

 

But I have to admit that it is a good read! Have been reading and looking thru it for a week now and have learned quite a bit! Thanks for the suggestion! But now I know when to order them! :dancing:

Ok this is the one I was given http://www.amazon.co.uk/Llewellyns-2008-Witches-Spell-Almanac/dp/0738705594/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1229696814&sr=1-1

 

I must admit I thought I'd entered the Twilight Zone then :sickwitch:

 

I am with you there!! :vomit:

 

I bought 2 of these (at the same time) from amazon... they went in the bin afterwards...
