No. 5: Celtic Magic by DJ Conway
Despite it’s awfulness, there will always be a soft spot in my heart for DJ Conway’s Celtic Magic. It was my first Witch-book as an adult, and I’m here today because of it. I found so much of it captivating as a young person, but time has not been kind to this piece of fluff from 1990.
And oh the history in this book! Conway has some lovely information about Druids in Celtic Magic, it’s just not accurate information. The Wicca 101 tone of the book means that Conway’s Celts celebrated holidays like the Spring Equinox, which we know they did not.
Despite this book’s general awfulness I still love it. Maybe it’s because I always wanted to date the young lady on the cover.
