A New Age is upon us. Thankfully, a handful of publishers have stepped in to provide the esoteric materials needed to spread the mind-body-spirit word, initiate the Wiccan masses, introduce the magick leaders, starry-eye the astrologers, and power the occult’s supernatural endeavors. Without a doubt, most of the book-publishing credit belongs to Llewellyn Publications and its longtime president, Carl Llewellyn Weschcke, considered by many to be the father of the New Age.
Weschcke died in 2016. His friend and fellow Wiccan Melanie Marquis, founder of the United Witches global coven, took it upon herself to write this definitive biography, Carl Llewellyn Weschcke: Pioneer and Publisher of Body, Mind & Spirit. Weschcke’s large American life and counterculture passions make for fascinating reading.
