Witchcraft versus Sorcery

Another tidbit from Peter Somerville-Large’s Irish Eccentrics:

‘The distinction between witchcraft and sorcery seems to be one of degree; sorcery is the more sophisticated pursuit, since its practitioners seem to be rather masters of the devil than his slaves. Of course, the advantage is only temporary.’

So remember that the next time a winged man-goat offers you wealth, success, and eternal life for a nominal fee.

    Harry Potter has got me hooked on witchcraft and wizardry myself.

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
