Obsolete Spells: The Life and Work of Victor Neuburg (with Justin Hopper)

Spread the love

For a ramble through the life of a person who made old, wyrd England the focus of his occult writings and poetry, Cian invites Justin Hopper to the cabin. We cover the life and times of Victor Neuburg, the now-obscure creator behind the Vine Press. A man who knew Aleister Crowley intimately, discovered Dylan Thomas, took part in the infamous Paris Working, and became the local eccentric publisher in a small English town. The book Obsolete Spells is out August 15th, 2022.

APOLOGIES to all the lovely folks who commented on the witchcraft murder episode, and has great suggestions for further reading. Most of them came in AFTER I recorded this, and then I went on a little holiday. I’ll read your great suggestions on the next ep!
