4.0 out of 5 stars A good read of a book concerning magick in fiction 13 April 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Raymond Buckland is quite an authority on magick and psychism in the USA. His talent in this area has led him to create a good book using it with his characters. The magick is believable, although somewhat pushing the limits of imagination.
This book could have been 5 stars except that Buckland lacks the necessary ingridients in making well fleshed out characters. The other problem with this book I felt is that the villian is given to us too early on along with his motives. We know exactly what he is up to and this detracts from the overall layout of the story!
If you are into magick, psychism, wicca, voudoun or any other type of esoterical beleif system, I think that you will find this book a good read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Gotta love it! 30 Mar 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Hey, when one of the nations top authorities on Witchcraft sits down to write a novel, it results in an awesome story with true-to-life characters. If only Buckland had been consulted when writing the movie "the Craft" maybe then that movie would have turned out great. No matter, this book is an awesome story. The second book about the commitee, it deals with a black magician in the vatican causing weather problems in the good old U.S. of A., and when the Committee gets called in, its time for a realistic no-holds-barred struggle between the forces of good and evil.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nonsense 22 Jun 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Yet another attempt to get into another genre of the writing world. Too bad you didn't advise all the readers of all your past works about the fiction in them. Most of us in the Craft know about your ability to sound valid and this is yet another stunt to show that you have talent in the writing field. New Flash: YOU DON'T. Maybe a biography of you might be a good idea for one of the many of us who have known of your bookwriting episodes. Wouldn't it be fun for a tell-all book about Buckland to come out? Bet it would be better than this one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read 9 Feb 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Like "The Committee," Buckland's novel keeps you wanting more. He obviously did some research on the Vatican and found a way to weave it into the story line. His two main characters, I feel, are well-developed, but the others need a little more depth. His writing is a little spare, but, hey, Hemingway got away with it, so why not. Looking forward to developments in later novels.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent 25 Aug 2005
By Joseph Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I got this looking for some quality occult fiction the king I found in Aleister Crowley and to a lesser extent Silver Ravenwolf. I thought it was a good book with a cool dak side cover artwork, but I found the plot of a group of psuedo heroes avenging a rapist to be buried beneath a premise of genuine occult things. I guess it is worth the kind of low price you'd expect from a mass market paperback format. I thought it had some suspense especially with the satanists involved. Occult fiction is one of those unique sub genres- you'll either love it or hate it.
