Mandrake of Oxford has released The Octavo: A Sorcerer-Scientist’s Grimoire, by Peter J. Carroll.

This book sounds rather intruiging, with an unusual premise. From the publisher’s website:

Every universe potentially has its own Supreme Grimoire containing the spells which define its reality and the magic which you can perform within that reality. In this Octavo we have assembled scattered secrets for a Supreme Grimoire for Roundworld, the universe in which you’re standing.

To this end we have taken some inspiration from Pratchett’s Discworld, and a lot from Theoretical Physics and Practical Chaos Magic.

The Octavo was released October 2010, and retails for £10.99 or 20$US.

I haven’t read any of the Discworld titles since I was a teenager, but I recall them fondly. This should be an interesting read!

Psyche is the editor of and the curator for the occult resource, Psyche also operates a tarot consultation business, Psyche Tarot. She has been published in The Cauldron, Konton, Tarot World Magazine, among other magazines, and her essay “Strategic Magick” appeared in Manifesting Prosperity (Megalithica, 2008).
