Review: Folk Magic and Healing

Many Comic Cons past, I fell in love with the art of Fez Inkwright (@rosdottir on Twitter), who combines beautiful art with folklore and witchiness, and is also a hugely sweet person. I have several pieces of her art up around my house, and I also bought her self-published book, Folk Magic and Healing: An Unusual History of British Plants. So I was thrilled when the last time I saw her, she told me it had been picked up by a publisher for a swanky expanded, hardback release – and even more thrilled when Liminal 11 offered me the chance to review the new edition!

Still, I’m back now, and trying my hardest to catch up – I have about a dozen reviews I’ve read the books for and need to write so I’m aiming to get my list clear in November, as well as several blog tours. I might be posting twice some days to get things up to speed!

I’m not going to up my goal, just keep reading and see how far I get in the next two months. Continue reading “TBR Check In: November 2019”
