Liber Nox, by Michael HowardLiber Nox, by Michael HowardLiber Nox: A Traditional Witch's Gramarye, by Michael Howard Skylight Press, 9781908011855, 217 pp., 2014Liber Nox is subtitled "A Traditional Witch’s Gramarye" in order to distinguish it from various forms of Wicca and contemporary Paganism, and to emphasize that it’s not in those traditions, but dealing with something older.The book covers what one might expect from a basic text of witchcraft: the deities, the tools, initiation, circle casting, and the Wheel of the Year.
