    The Witches’ Almanac is a sophisticated publication appealing to general readers as well as hardcore Wiccans. Founded in 1971 by Elizabeth Pepper, the art director of Gourmet magazine for many years, The Witches’ Almanac is a witty, literate, and sophisticated publication that appeals to all those devoted to the Craft. At one level, it is a pop reference that will fascinate anyone interested in folklore, mythology, and culture; but at another, it is the most sophisticated and wide-ranging annual guide available today for the mystic enthusiast. Modeled after the Old Farmers’ Almanac, it includes information related to the annual moon calendar (weather forecasts and horoscopes), as well as legends, rituals, herbal secrets, mystic incantations, interviews, and many a curious tale of good and evil. Although it is an annual publication, much of the content is both current and timeless—not specific to the date range of each issue. The theme of Issue 41 (Spring 2022–Spring 2023) is The Moon: Transforming the Inner Spirit. Also included are articles on geomancy, the lunar nodes, charms of the Welsh March, the Messenger of the Gods, the Orisha Sango, and much more.

    All theater romances are tragedies. Ella Blythe knows this. Still, she cannot help but hope her own story may turn out different than most--and certainly different than the tragic story of the Ghost of Craven Street Theater. Yet as she struggles to maintain her tenuous place in the ever-shrinking ballet company, win the attentions of principal dancer Philippe, and avoid company flirt Jack, Ella cannot deny the uncanny feeling that her life is mirroring that of the dead ballerina.  
     
    Is she dancing ever closer to the edge of her own tragic end? Or will the secrets that are about to come to light offer release from the past? 
     
    Mystery and romance make the perfect dance partners in this evocative story from fan-favorite Joanna Davidson Politano.
