Review: Not In Kansas Anymore



Not in Kansas Anymore: A Curious Tale of How Magic is Transforming America by Christine Wicker

This was a really interesting nonfiction read. Wicker, a magical skeptic at best, decides to explore the "hidden underbelly" of magic.

She encounters self proclaimed practicioners of hoodoo, voodoo, elves, vampires, werewolves and more in her travels, and this book reads like a fascinating and weird travelogue through secret places.

Though few conclusions are drawn, she had done her research and tries to fairly portray her experiences in a very real, funny, interesting way.

A fascinating read!
