Space/time Magic, by Taylor Ellwood
Immanion Press, I1904853269, 204 pp. (incl. appendices and bibliography), 2005

It’s refreshing to see a book on magick which focuses on a specific topic rather than a general introductory text, and further, one which steps outside the realms of the traditional grimoires on Enochian, kabbalah, or ceremonial workings.

Until now, time magick has been a fringe branch of exploration, with writers such as Peter Carroll and Frater U.: D.: writing brief treatises on its theory and applicability. Space/Time Magic represents the first full length, in depth study of the subject, and Ellwood’s done an admirable job.

Chapters cover everything from divination, to writing, art, music, science and meditation, and each chapter concludes with exercises to be performed to put the theory to use. Appendices detail further explorations, and the extensive bibliography could also serve as a great recommended reading list.

Ellwood writes in a familiar, personal tone, detailing many of his own projects, both historical and current at the time of writing with projections for the future, which the reader will presumably be updated on in future works.

With Space/Time Magic it’s clear that Ellwood is beginning to come into his own; I look forward to reading his future works.
