Fourth issue, “Crown & Crossroads,” published June 2017, with copper titling, a cover drawn by Timothy Renner, and 44 pages of art and magic, including the following articles...

Our Peculiar Passion
Editorial by Clint Marsh
“The magazine grew from simple desires, among them a love of nature, a longing for fellowship, and an urge to explore the quiet mysteries of life.”

On the Meaning of Life
by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche
“Because we would like to give birth to wisdom or spirituality, we are rushing constantly. We perch on the egg, or grip the branches of the tree like a bird.”

Gettin’ On Okay: Self-Reliance and the Witch, by Melissa Madara, illustrations by Adrienne Rozzi
“In a modern world that daily distances us from spirituality and keeps us forever entrapped in dependence upon unjust systems, there can be no greater protest than belief in magic, nor a more radical witchcraft than self-reliance.”

On Skepticism
by Andrew M. Reichart, illustration by Alexis Berger
“Could it be that my interactions with Odin are only a figment of my imagination? Of course; but when I talk that way, He goes away, and who could blame Him? So I don’t.”

Of Magic and Manners
by Cody Dickerson
“You may be met with derision, and yet you exacted that meticulous and precise operation that is response, not reaction, and in doing so, indulged in the Noble Art, the reification of utter witchery.”

The Ring of Truth: The Casting and Use of the Magic Circle, by Clint Marsh
“I don’t want to know how to turn invisible, and I’m not in search of my one true love. I’m making the circle because I want to open a window between this world and the magical one, the place where elves and dreams of flight are born.”

The Lapwing Stars, by Tom Hirons
“The pheasant in the spinney has it;
Half-glimpsed, gold as a fairytale thread.
As the boy steps between the trees,
Time peels away like leaves of bark,
Century by century by century.”

Special Section:
The Magic of the English Downs

England, My Lionheart, by Kenneth MacKriell, illustrations by Timothy Renner
“I spent my childhood and adolescence inventing a dramatic narrative for Sussex, but had I been less myopic I would have realised that the England I was lucky enough to be living in was already a magical landscape.”

Bigwigs and Pipkins, Reading Watership Down During Dark Times, by Artnoose, illustration by Virginia Lee
“When the rabbits gather to set out on their own and build a new warren, they do not bring together the biggest and strongest. At the onset, the group is tied together by a simple affinity of the willing.”

Gods of the Downs
A Gallery by Alex CF
Depictions of the Black Rabbit of Inlé, El-ahrairah, and Lord Frith

Third issue, “Gardener’s Giantess,” published August 2016, with the much-loved copper titling, French flaps, an original cover drawn by Timothy Renner, and the following articles...

In the Footsteps of the Ancestors: Editorial by Clint Marsh
“I consider the countless ancestors who came before, the ones I knew and those I couldn’t, and wonder how many imperceptible heirlooms I carry with me.”

Mind Power: A Manifesto, by Mitch Horowitz
“I have grown more dedicated to exploring the use and viability of the core mind-power thesis, which is: thoughts are causative.”

Our Bogeys, Our Shelves: The Magician’s Library as Mentor, Companion, and Oracle
“Our books make us more aware of who we’ve become and, by reminding us of the fundamental virtues and skills we’ve granted ourselves, they show us the people we might yet become.”

Anti-Nightmare Wallpaper (and the Ladies Behind It), written and illustrated by Mink and Mann
“Portraits and artifacts evincing an obscure coterie—the 1917 chapter of the secret society known as the Ladies of Happenstance—manifested upon the hotel’s walls.”

Landscapes of the Imagination: How Our Minds Model the Natural World, written and illustrated by Jeff Hoke
“The creation of mental models based on the natural world is an ancient tradition—a talent our ancestors developed to navigate and survive.”

Three Legs Best: Meeting the Sphinx on the Artist’s Path
“For the ambitiously creative among us, deathlessness is largely attained through our completed works of art, a four-, two-, and three-legged progression watched over by the harshest, most bloodthirsty critic ever known.”

Remembering Michael Howard, by Daniel A. Schulke
“Whether walking through the woods at night or traversing the world of humanity by day, he seemed guided by an interior luminosity that was at once certain and otherworldly.”

Blindfolded & Straying, by Anthony Walent
“Like Tamino in Mozart’s The Magic Flute, we may be initially led astray by our own self-deception. And then suddenly, after a period of experience and discovery, we inch closer and closer to the flickering candle.”

Second issue, “Verdigris Soul,” first published September 2015 and reissued February 2016 in honor of the Occult Humanities Conference, featuring copper foil titling on the cover and the following articles...

In Pursuit of Magic: Editorial by Clint Marsh
“Magic is an impossible prey. The faster I run toward it, the faster it moves away.”

Beauty in Union, Genius in Solitude: William Kiesel in Conversation with Clint Marsh (Special Edition exclusive)
“Why do I do it all? Because I am a participant in the traditions of esotericism and book-making, and these disciplines are deeply fulfilling to me.”

Bonewits’ Unbreakable Laws of Magic: The Foundations of Reality as Discovered by America’s First Academically Accredited Wizard
“What set the wizard of Berkeley apart from the others was the accessibility and warmth he brought to magic, as well as the sense that we engage in magical workings every day.

The Five Norths of the Left-Hand Path: Digital Dowsing for Decision-Makers, by Craig Conley
“Indeed there are five norths, and their subtle distinctions can make all the difference in navigating toward a goal.”

Exploding the Tangerine: A Shy Person’s Guide to Battle Magic
“Whether or not one is predisposed to aggression, be it for offense or defense, much can be gained from developing our less brutish means of persuasion.”

Where Wood Meets Flesh: Reflections on the Wisdom of the Dendrites, by Daniel Schulke, illustrated by Benjamin Vierling
“Each chose his own wilderness habitation, a primitive and unadorned cell wherein God was the sole focus of rustic contemplation.”

Enchantment Dismantled: Superstition and the Thinking Irrationalist
“These acts are quick magic spells, potent shortcuts to power. They’re tricky, though. Even if the power they grant isn’t purely illusory, it can come at a cost.”
This essay is available as a standalone pamphlet in the new Fiddler’s Green Leaflets series.

Mast: Fiction by Sylvia V. Linsteadt, illustrated by Alexis Berger
“When Roe saw the end of the world coming, she stole a riverboat and filled it with acorns and bones...”

Premiere issue, first published September 2014 and reissued February 2016 in honor of the Occult Humanities Conference, featuring copper foil titling on the cover and the following articles...

Where Art Meets the Occult: A Call to Action by Ken Henson (Special Edition exclusive)
“Magic and art have the potential to empower and connect us to the ineffable macrocosm. We need to continue to unearth and celebrate the art of our occult forefathers.”

Upon First Meeting a Wizard: Practical Considerations
“Let him make the first move. Wizards love words, history, freedom, and their incantations, while lengthy, always carry within their folded logic a handful of the seeds of truth. Just listen.”

Finding Magic on the Map: Ramsey Dukes’ Compass Rose
“The diagram’s value is most apparent when it helps users understand magic less as an activity and more as a way of being.

The Kids Are All Rite: Traditionalism, Magic, Punk & “As-If”
“Music took elements of life I’d always known were magical and imbued them with action. Magic wasn’t introspective—it could stand up and snarl.”

Black & White Defenses Against the Basilisk: A Magical Approach to Surviving Extreme Anxiety
All the historical protections against basilisks and their paralytic gaze—including mirrors, spears, and weasels—are still effective today.

The Place of the Song-Dream: The Animal Spirituality of Kenneth Grahame
“This is a harkening to an earlier, more personal, more primal spirituality, a soulful connection between the earth and its inhabitants.”
This essay is available as a standalone pamphlet in the new Fiddler’s Green Leaflets series.

Bad Habits Worth Cultivating: The Magical Upsides to Tea-Drinking, Pipe-Smoking, and Other Associations with Demons
“Many people bemoan the hurry-scurry of modern life, but we must remember that, for those inclined toward a thoughtful existence, life has always seemed this way.”

Rise & Root: Insurrectionary Iconography for Everyone, by Rima Staines
“For some time I’ve wanted to make an image with which to start a quiet revolution...raised fists to the fight, roots in the earth.”
