Book excerpt: This book is an account of two years spent getting to know Britain's most dazzling and enigmatic insects - the dragonflies and damselflies. The quest to find, photograph, watch and learn about dragons and damsels took the author on a tour of diverse and lovely wetlands up and down Britain, from the rugged wild peat bogs of north-west Scotland to the languid meanders of the Oxfordshire Thames. The account describes close encounters with the dragons and damsels themselves, set against backdrops of rich and vital habitats teeming with a range of other wildlife. It is also packed with background detail on dragonfly and damselfly natural history, and wetland ecology in general. The text is enlivened with line drawings and a section of colour photographs.

Book excerpt: Finding the right magickal community is an important part of exploring our magickal selves. Whether that is a single mentor or a thriving spiritual community, coming together with others can form the foundation of a dynamic spiritual life. But just meeting regularly does not a healthy spiritual group make, nor does a simple desire to pass on the hard-won knowledge privately gained. What makes a healthy spiritual group? How do we find one, or make one? Magickal Connections explores the nature of a magickal group's dynamics from its inception to its dissolution, offering practical advice for people at any stage of a group's life cycle. Potential leaders are guided through the transition from participant along with sensible exploration of their motivation for this change. With no-nonsense direction about the hows and whats of the mentoring relationship, expectations can be clarified at the outset. With its frank discussion of the politics of working within a group, Magickal Connections is useful for all members of a group, no matter their role.

To find the most fiendish, he holds a spell-casting competition. Glamorous Madame Olympia performs the terrifying Symphony of Death and conjures up a thousand plague-bearing rats. The magic of gentle Belladonna, the white witch, goes hopelessly wrong. She produces perfumed flowers instead of snakes. And bats roost in her golden hair instead of becoming blood-sucking vampires.
