To the Unseen Future

I tweeted so much about the Harvard Books warehouse sale that they gave me a $25 gift card! So I went to Cambridge last Wednesday night to pick up a Christmas present, but the section I needed was inaccessible due to a reading in progress. “Oh well, I’ll just hit the occult section and buy more books for myself!”

I had my eye on this one at B&N a year or so ago. I hope it’s as juicy as it looks.

Here’s the weirdest find by far. (This actually is for research, by the way. No, really.)

Where do I even begin to make fun of this?

 

P1110539

More research. (You’ll see!)

I was most excited about this one. I have Evelyn Underhill’s masterpiece on mysticism—again, research—but it’s a doorstopper. This is an easier place to start.

I showed Practical Mysticism and its dedication to a friend, who said, “That’s us!,” which reminded me in turn of that lovely thing my sister said once: “Think of all the people we’ll love who haven’t been born yet.”

Ah yes. And more chocolate.

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.
