PRLog - Jun. 14, 2012 - New collection of writings on Witchcraft & Paganism by scholar K. A. Laity

Galway, Ireland – 13 June 2012 – Pagan and witchcraft scholar K. A. Laity has assembled a compendium of her writings in Rook Chant. The materials cover witchcraft, magic and ritual from the Middle Ages up to today, touching on popular culture including works by writers Alan Moore and Russell Hoban.

Rook Chant: Collected Writing on Witchcraft & Paganism represents the breadth of her interests in paganism and witchcraft. It includes everything from short pieces for pagan/spirituality journals like The Seeker Journal, The Beltane Papers, Circle and New Witch, papers delivered at academic conferences or published in academic journals as well as a few reviews and translations of old magical texts.

"Laity is a very remarkable sorceress indeed."
~ Elizabeth Hand, author of Waking the Moon

"ROOK CHANT is a delicious in-gathering, a magpie's nest of shiny new things about subjects old, gnarled and powerful. Sit with it, relish it and be bound likewise into a breathing tradition that puts Potter et al to shame. It is a charm well-sung and a talisman."
~H. Byron Ballard, Asheville's Village Witch and author of Staubs and Ditchwater: a Friendly and Useful Introduction to Hillfolks' Hoodoo

K. A. Laity is the author of the novels Owl Stretching, Pelzmantel, The Mangrove Legacy, Chastity Flame and the collection Unikirja, as well as other stories, plays and essays. Her stories tend to slip across genres and categories, but all display intelligence and humour. Dr. Laity teaches medieval literature, film, digital humanities and popular culture at the College of Saint Rose in New York, though at present she can be found at NUI Galway as a Fulbright scholar for the 2011-2 academic year.
