Voodoo Spellbook – original edition – by Doktor Snake (St Martin’s Press, 2004). Spells, curses and folk magic for all your needs…
Doktor Snake’s Voodoo Spellbook brought voodoo to the masses. It was first published over ten years ago. Within months of hitting the streets, the book became a cult bestseller.
Back then there was nothing out there that clearly set out voodoo and hoodoo in an accessible and usable way. All you had was dodgy pamphlets, which were poorly produced and which had been endlessly reprinted from the 1930s or academic book. But none told you how to do voodoo.
The Voodoo Spellbook was hip, sassy, and rock and roll. Doktor Snake is rightly proud of the interest in voodoo and hoodoo it generated.
Richly illustrated, Doktor Snake’s Voodoo Spellbook was published by St Martin’s Press in the U.S. and by Connections in the UK.
Original back cover blurb from Doktor Snake’s Voodoo Spellbook
Afro-American magic is one of the world’s largest spiritual systems. Yet it remains shrouded in secrecy and sometimes fear…
In his Voodoo Spellbook, Doktor Snake guides you through this shadowy world, where illusion walks the deadly tightrope with enlightenment.
Voodoo is not a path for the fainthearted. Consequently, Doktor Snake’s Voodoo Spellbook does not shy away from human passions. But treats them honestly and with respect. Voodoo teaches us how to fulfil our desires, mete out revenge and gain personal power.
In Doktor Snake’s gripping personal account, he recalls many anecdotes from his own odyssey through voodoo. From deals made with the Devil to illnesses miraculously cured.
Some tales will send a chill through you, while many others are simply outrageous. Doktor Snake’s Voodoo Spellbook also includes a chapter investigating the legend that 1930s bluesman Robert Johnson sold his soul to the devil in exchange for guitar expertise and fame.
