The Wicked Shall Decay by A.Mercer - (Hardcover First Edition - Published by Three Hands Press in 2018). Before the witchcraft revival of 20th century popular occultism, witches and their arts of malevolent magic were recognized as real and constituted ever-present threats to the community. Spells and charms against the evil influence of witches were a common feature of rural English life, and form a unique --and sometimes sinister-- corpus of folk magic similar in its features to the baneful magical operations witches were accused of. Through the use of incantations, herbs, talismans, spirit compacts, gestures, and prayers , a practitioner of British folk-sorcery could overcome the power of magical ill-doers using time-tested and traditional methods of magic. From the forgotten archives of nineteenth century folklore and first-hand reports of the period, occult researcher Andrew Mercer has gathered a collection of the more obscure and lesser-known examples of the fascinating magical art of anti-bewitchment, expelling, binding and cursing.
Even after the practice of witch-hunting and persecution began to wane, malefic sorcery was greatly feared as a baneful and pernicious influence, particularly in rural areas during the 18th and 19th century. The arsenal of folk-magical armaments against such powers included charms, spells, rituals, sigils, and magical squares, as well as the use of magical herbs and words of power. Many of these practices resembled in method and materiel the very evil they were meant to combat, embodying in themselves a savour of the sinister and demonic.Accessing a diverse array of historical and folkloric sources, A. Mercer's The Wicked Shall Decay gathers together a collection of obscure British magic featuring curses, anti-witchcraft spells and hedges against malevolent power. Greatly treasured in their day for their efficacy, these rites document a widespread tradition of dark folk magic of value to the research of both scholar and esoteric practitioner alike.
