Insights into Cyprian the Mage

November 15, 2016

A considered review of JSK’s The Testament of Cyprian the Mage has been posted by Frater Acher on his Theomagica site. His opinion is that the book …is what people call an instant classic.

Babalon & Other Plays reviewed by Matthew Levi Stevens

August 1, 2016

‘I have written elsewhere that it is among the power of Words to weave Worlds, summon Ghosts, and make them live again. To my mind, Paul A. Green certainly succeeds in conjuring worlds both real and imaginary, and animating their inhabitants so that his Ghosts walk once more upon the stage and have their say. As such, he is undoubtedly a Master of Words, and deserves to be read for it.’ – Matthew Levi Stevens
