This is my Grimoire, my Book of Shadows or Liber Umbrarum. It is an ever-growing collection of writings, articles and musings.

Note! I am not a Wiccan but rather a Chaos Magician with Neopagan tendencies (or vice versa). I do NOT follow the Wiccan Rede or the Three-fold Law and thus most material concerning Wiccan moral theory is not included in my collection. To learn more about Wicca, go here.

All articles written by Raven’s Eye, except stated otherwise.
