The Compleat Witch Illustrated Bibliography Project

Quote:
"For those who don't know, the bibliography to 'The Compleat Witch' is a treasure trove of weird and wonderful books drastically ranging in subject matter."


This project was recently initiated by Reverend Slaughter. With the aid of Reverend Byrd and myself, Reverend Slaughter will post a blog every few days on one of the books listed in the bibliography of "The Compleat Witch". Each blog will contain information on the cited edition, information on other editions/reprints, online resources, front flap/back cover blurbs, and quotes from within the text. The first book up is "Untrodden Fields of Anthropology" by Dr. Jacobus X.

Participation by everyone is encouraged, especially if you happen to have different editions of the books (including foreign language editions) or spot an error on our part in the information provided.

I've been wanting to do this for well over a decade. My initial idea was to produce a book, but the absolutely insane amount of research was too much for me to consider for what would be one strange little nice book.
I've slowly collected a couple of dozen books from the 170 listed in the bibliography, and finally the time was right.
Instead of doing all kinds of research in the solitude and secrecy, and with the ease of blogging and the support of a social network or two, not only can the research be done with the aide of a few enthusiastic Satanic bibliophiles, but the research and production can be accomplished in public, and the few weird aficionados can contribute themselves at a whim, at any stage in the process.
We look to do at least one book a week, but books that we only have very little data on may be pushed out quickly so there will be multiple books in a week.
All in all, the project could go for more than two years, and theoretically it will exist in a way that as new information comes up at any point, it can be added.
At the end of the project, it may or may not be worth compiling it all into a physical book form, but it certainly will be easier and FAR better in this online edition than I could have imagined.

This is quite a major project! Once again, this shows that Satanists are constantly working on something and spend their time productively. It's a pleasure to walk the earth with such people. Thank you!

Hail Satan!

You've no idea how thrilled I am about this project.

For me, Reverend, you exemplify what an elite individual actually is amidst a sea of mediocrity in this world. I'm always happy to see what you're up to.

We've been moving on and going strong with the title releases; go see what you've been missing.

And here's a little promo photo I took, my Witchy wife modeling. Those are titles from the bibliography in the background.

OOOoooooOOOOOOoooo shocked grin

I LOVE this book! It is essential part of anomalies collection: Bondeson, Mannix, Gould & Pyle, Leroi... and about a thousand books on freakshows. Quite a few curiosities listed in Compleat Witch bibliography!

Here's to the crooked trees. smile
