Andrea Dean Van Scoyoc’s Olde Worlde Magic

Olde Worlde Superstitions
by Andrea Dean Van Scoyoc
(my review copy given by the author, who, yes, is my friend)

Man is a suspicious lot, as evidenced by some of the ruins left behind by prehistoric humans—cave paintings and rock carvings depicting various ritualistic figures. We still today carry some of those superstitions with us—carrying lucky rabbits’ feet and other such charms on our persons.
Horror and sinisteria author Andrea Dean Van Scoyoc, most well-known for her novels A Man of Two Worlds and Fallen From Shadow, Found in Grace tackled the subject of charms and superstitions in a latest work, a non-fiction piece entitled Olde Worlde Magic: Superstitions and Lore.

The booklet compiles in encyclopedia form, everything from Animal superstitions—such as the well known cat superstitions—say, what it means to see a cat washing behind its ears, to the ubiquitous black cat legends—to lesser known ones such as the meaning of foxes, how goldfish might affect your life, and even horses. Some other superstitions she covers here are the superstitions surrounding various flora, superstitions once used to portend a person’s future love life and familial situations, and even ways to keep away unwanted visitors.

Olde Worlde Magic: Superstitions and Lore by Andrea Dean Van Scoyoc is a fun little tome, either for a rainy day, for curiosity’s sake, or, for the writers among my readers, to add a little flavor to your stories. If you’d like to check it out, it’s available at Amazon.com and Lulu.com.
