"A contemporary ingredient in the cauldron world of the witch-novelist is a pilot's thumb. Yet the old mixture remains: entrails, toads got from beneath a stone, fashionable racial scapegoats (Shakespeare has 'blaspheming Jews', 'nose of Turk', 'Tartar's Lips') , souls and bodies strangled at birth; murderers, adulterers. Mix, and bring forth a prophecy." - opening paragraph. ; 8vo
