 Fifty-Four Devils:
The Art & Folklore of Fortune-telling with Playing Cards

This brief-but-richly drawn book explores the practice of divination by playing cards—known as cartomancy. It reveals the “secrets in plain sight” which hide within the pips, kings, queens, and jokers of a standard deck. Explore one method of divination in-depth as you meet the “fifty-four devils”—the symbolic spirits of each card—and learn about invoking ancestral blessings for card readings, the folklore of playing cards, and how to relate fairy tales to a spread along the way.

Hands of Apostasy:
Essays on Traditional Witchcraft


Three Hands Press has assembled a collection of essays exploring the various forms, methods, symbols, and meanings of Traditional Witchcraft. Featuring entries from Gemma Gary, Mike Howard, Daniel Schulke (and Cory, who wrote a piece on Appalachian witchcraft initiations), Hands of Apostasy looks at a number of diverse and thoughtful perspectives on non-Wiccan witchcraft, its theory, and its praxis.

American Myths, Legends, & Tall Tales: An Encyclopedia of American Folklore (3 Vols.)

This expansive, three-volume encyclopedia contains hundreds of well-known and lesser-known pieces of American folklore. The publisher sourced many of its entries from well-known scholars in the field of folklore studies and each entry provides not only summary information about the legend or figure in question, but also information about the culture where the folklore is found, plus a solid list of references for additional research. Cory’s contributions include nearly a half-dozen articles, including several witch-figures like Betty Booker and Old Granny Tucker.

Etched Offerings: Voices from the Cauldron of Story

Featuring stories from great authors like H.D. Grogan, Inanna Gabriel, & Jason White, as well as many others (including Cory). Etched Offerings explores Pagan themes through the lens of short stories, often with a speculative-fiction or eerie vision guiding the narrative. (Misanthrope Press, 2011, currently out-of-print).

A Rustle of Dark Leaves: Tales from the Shadows of the Forest

This collection of tales explores the world of the dark forest, often with horrific glee. Step among the trees and discover the tales that lurk within the shadows that fall across the forest floor. From the words of the Forest himself to the ancient gods who defend him, from those who dwell within to those who merely wander, these fifteen tales of the forest will intrigue, inspire, terrify, and enchant. Includes stories by Alexis A. Hunter, Gerri Leen, LaShawn M. Wanak, Jenni Wiltz, Seth Drake, and many more, with an introduction by Cory Thomas Hutcheson (Misanthrope Press, 2012, currently out-of-print).
