For serious readers and dabblers alike, the acclaimed author of the Encyclopedia of 5000 Spells offers the essential book for working with supernatural beings
Spirits permeate our culture. We flatter a woman by calling her a goddess, a man by calling him an “Adonis.” Describe being stuck in an elevator as “hell,” and you've just evoked Hel, the Norse guardian of the realm of death. “Nemesis” is named for the Greek goddess of justice and vengeance. An aphrodisiac evokes the power of Aphrodite, the goddess of love and sex. And “frickin'” is not a substitute for a stronger obscenity, it's the name of another Norse goddess spelled Frika. There are spirits in pop culture, too, like Neil Gaiman's American Gods, in Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, The Ring series of horror movies, in Bob Dylan's Isis, Fleetwood Mac's hit Rhiannon, and Shocking Blue's Venus in Blue Jeans. Even in prison, inmates tatoo Our Lady of Guadalupe on their backs, because no one would stick a knife into Our Lady, would they? Sprits permeate every corner of our culture, and the Encyclopedia of Spirits explains who they are and how we can persuade them to help us land a job, find our true love, conceive a child, protect our distant loved ones, or heal our ailments.

The Encyclopedia of Spirits is a mythological and metaphysical tour de force. An exhaustive A-to-Z of spirits, angles, demons, and saints, this book includes the following:
-Who these entities are (including their likes and dislikes)
-How to communicate with specific entities for your own benefit
-How the entities manifest themselves
-The mythological and historical events associated with each entity.
-The colors, days, numbers, and astrological signs associated with each entity.
The Encyclopedia of Spirits also provides an overview of the role of spirit communication throughout history and a general guide to spirit work.
