More About the Author

Lee Morgan is a dual citizen of Britain and Australia, and oscillates between which country he wishes to be associated with based on fluctuating political embarrassments. A lifetime interest in the occult and poetry led to seven years at university studying wildly vocational topics like Literature. Fully assured of a likely career in the fast food industry, Lee began to pursue publication of a first book. Lee continued to pursue publication of a book for well over a decade. A twenty year involvement in Traditional Witchcraft and a lot of pushing from friends led to a first publication in non-fiction with 'A Deed Without a Name: Unearthing the Legacy of Traditional Witchcraft', which Lee describes as the book he would have liked to have found when first setting out upon the crooked path, and is designed for the discerning beginner. A new more 'advanced' non-fiction title 'Sounds of Infinity: Traditional Witchcraft and the Faerie Faith' is expected this year.

But as a writer Lee's greatest focus is his fiction, with novels that fall somewhere between occult fiction and folk horror. Lee's first fictional series The Christopher Penrose Novels (beginning with 'Wooing the Echo' and followed by 'The Bones Would Do') give vent to his life-long passions for witchcraft, arcane truths, paranormal monstrosities, sex, horror and poetry. Lee's new book 'Unless They're Wicked' is the first of a new series that becomes a parallel and intersecting tale with The Christopher Penrose Novels. The two series as a whole are referred to as The Haunted Books.

Product Description

Review

Wild Witch and author of Ecstatic Witchcraft and By Land, Sky & Sea - Lee Morgan has crafted an astonishing and completely necessary work and has done this without relying on hapless anachronisms or pseudo-history. The Cunning Craft of the Traditional Witch is alive and well and 'A Deed Without a Name' helps to unravel this Story for the reader in visceral, poetic and timeless ways. This book allows the Witch of ultimately any path to gain a full and fresh understanding of contemporary Traditional Witchcraft and to feel into the aesthetic, context and substance of the Art of the Craft. This book should, and will, become a seminal text in the ever-growing Witchcraft phenomenon. --Gede Parma,

Format: Paperback
Lee Morgan has delivered a corker of a first book; easily read, engaging, intriguing, poetic and deep. I have no hesitation in recommending it highly. Lee is clear in her intention:

"It is my aim to make the practical implications of this [new] witchcraft scholarship available through the lens of my own occult experience, namely in Traditional Witchcraft."

Since of course there is precious little evidence that any traditional religious Witchcraft existed in pre-modern Europe, this is an interesting intention. Witchcraft has been, and remains for the majority a word for malefic magic and practice. Folk did not self-identify as `witches', much less as Pagan-religious Witches, until the early 20th century. Lee is able to accommodate this academic consensus within a practical book on traditional Witch methods and world-views by her own subtle and deep poetic vision, obviously borne out of years of profound and even troublesome experience.

"To access what some people call the `tradition' of witchcraft we need to first understand that witchcraft as we know it is a myth. But this is no to say it doesn't exist. The `nameless deed' that lies behind that myth is part of the eternal nature of mankind."

This identification with the myth of Witchcraft is what enables this book to do its work. The reader becomes aware very early on that Lee is poet as well as a Witch, and her poetic vision shines throughout her words and practices. Ronald Hutton draws similar attention to Starhawk's poetic nature - "The tendency of The Spiral Dance was not to explain or to instruct so much as to intoxicate". So too with A Deed Without a Name; it is a wonderful journey into and through a consciously embraced myth.

Format: Paperback
Lee Morgan has a beautiful way of pulling you into this book. After a chapter or two I found I couldn't put this down. I loved that this book could inform me and yet not preach at me.

I loved that there were passages from other modern witches mixed in with stories form the past. A mixture of voices old and new. So many subjects are covered within the 168 pages I don't know where to begin. One of the other reviews mentioned the price, £11.99, and yes that seems quite a lot for a shortish book, however I have to agree with the reviewer, the information contained within this book needs to be read. This is a book I could read cover to cover or delve in and out of. I liked that some chapters were short and sweet too. This helps when you've a busy life, I could sit with a cup of coffee, read a chapter or two and get on with the chores for the day.

Lee shines the light through the darkness of the ages and illuminates the facts, and I for one loved this. I don't think it will matter where you are on your path, you will enjoy this book. Even if you are a seasoned practitioner, you will still find something within these pages that will inform you.

Well worth the price tag, or equally would make a wonderful gift. I know I will be keeping my copy and it is already well thumbed.

Format: Paperback
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Lee has a real way of drawing the reader into this book and really engaging them. I have always found it extremely difficult to finish any kind of reference material but found myself unable to put this book down.
The material in this book isn't basic Witchcraft, but rather an essential requirement for any person who calls themselves a true Witch dedicated to self improvement in their workings to have.
This book gives many references for other possible avenues of research and study, and helps open one up to the possibilities of their own capabilities.
Exploring the small snippets of history we do know of what we call Traditional Witchcraft and piecing them together with a modern understanding to perceived their meanings, Lee has given us the opportunity to understand where it is we come from and take hold of this to decide for ourselves, where we are going.
Highly recommended for anyone in their Craft.
I look forward to reading whatever Lee decides to write next.
