Exu and the Mandragora

Worth drawing attention to some new Scarlet Imprint book reviews. These concern Exu and Mandragora respectively. Both important and very different works given detailed peer reviews.

Exu and the Quimbanda of Night and Fire by Nicholaj de Mattos Frisvold is getting a rapturous response. The hardback Caveira edition is in stock, the fine Mor edition will ship in the New Year and we have just made the paperback and digital Bibliotheque Rouge versions available.




An important book, which together with Pomba Gira and the Quimbanda of Mbumba Nzila provide the most detailed view of Quimbanda available in the English language.

Mandragora is now making it onto University reading lists. This exonerates those of us who understand the power of poetry in ritual and magic.
Arguably one of our most beautiful books it is getting the kind of reviews online that make people reconsider the importance of the word.
