More Trees!


Since my obsession with herbs and trees appears to be perpetual, I have added a “Wortcunning” section to the website in order to help those interested in learning more about plants and their esoteric history. I shall be posting new pictures regularly to aid in identifications, while adding bits of mystical lore and herbal knowledge as the mood strikes.

Some plants will be wild, while others will be growing in my garden or a nearby graveyard. Most of the wild plants are those I find while hiking near my home, and  thus will be primarily those either native (or introduced) to New England landscapes.

Witchy Offerings



Those of us at The Witches’ Almanac have been busy working on some non-periodically released offerings as of late, such as the newest edition of David Conway’s classic Magic: An Occult Primer and The Witches’ Almanac Coloring Book. One is an excellent survey of ritual magic techniques, while the other is a great way to blow off steam and create some beautiful art. Both can be found at

Also, keep on the lookout for the 2017-2018 edition of The Witches’ Almanac, which shall be hitting the proverbial shelves very soon.



The Call of Lovecraft

I am honored to be part of a brand new Eldritch Walking Tour App known as The Call of Lovecraft (clicky). In connection with Waterfire Providence and the upcoming Necronomicon 2015, this app allows one to learn more about various sites around Providence associated with H.P. Lovecraft and his Cthulhu mythos through synced multimedia as they wander around the author’s beloved city.

It will also occasionally feature my disembodied head. Hope you dig it.


You Are Entitled To My Opinion

Howdy Folks. It has been a while since I’ve updated the site, and I apologize for the lack of new material. This shall be remedied shortly. In the interim, old pal and author Scott Levebvre has an Interview Blog called “You Are Entitled To My Opinion”, where he interviews your truly and a whole slew of interesting folks, including my Dream Logic Tarot co-conspirator Jay Gidwitz, and another old friend of mine, author and Hull Breach co-creator, Charles Quigley. The links are as follows:

This guy, Jay, and Charles. Enjoy!

My Favorite Physics Joke

Heisenberg and Schrodinger are driving a BMW down the highway at a very fast speed. Suddenly, they see police lights in the rear view mirror and pull over to the side of the road. Two policeman wander over to their car.

“Do you have any idea how fast you were going?” Asks one officer.
“No,” says Heisenberg, “but I know precisely where I am.”
The policeman glares at him. “You were going 117 miles an hour, smartass.”
“Damn! Now I’m lost,” says Heisenberg, who quickly pulls out a calculator as Schrodinger giggles.
The officer grows irate. “Out of the car!” he yells, and begins searching the car while his partner pats down the two physicists.

After a furious search of the vehicle, the officer returns to glower at the two scientists, now handcuffed and sitting on the jersey barrier.
“No drugs, but did you guys know you had a dead cat in your trunk?”
Schrodinger sighs and rolls his eyes, visibly annoyed.

“We do now, asshole.”

NecronomiCON Kickstarter!

Hey there, folks. As I might have previously mentioned, I am helping to organize a rather badass (if I do say so myself) H.P. Lovecraft-themed convention known as the NecronomiCON, which will be held August 23-25, 2013 in Lovecraft’s hometown of Providence, RI. We currently have a Kickstarter page up and running, and it would be awesome if you could stop on by and take a look at it HERE.
Thank you kindly
