"The Witch's Eight Paths of Power" (Weiser Books) was published September 2014 and is available in digital or trade paperback formats at:


Barnes & Noble


Google Books 

According to Gerald Gardner's Book of Shadows, there are eight methods to practice magick.  They are:

* Meditation or Concentration.  Called for short, "Intent."

* Trance; projection of the Astral.

* Rites, Chants, Spells, Runes, Charms, etc. "The Craft"

* Incense, Drugs, Wine, etc. "Intoxicants".

* The Dance, and kindred practices.

* Blood Control (the Cords), Breath Control, and kindred practices.

* The Scourge.

* The Great Rite. 

Rather than describe spell recipes, or even how to practice the Sabbats, Sable details how to utilize each of the Eight Paths as a technique to make your magick and practice more effective.  Each chapter details one of the paths and breaks it down into a complete, workable practice.

Synopsis of Book One "A Few Good Elves" - Four hundred years ago, the spaceways were shaken by the First Unhuman War, as elves and orcs pitted their best spacefaring skills against one another. The orcs were at last defeated and imprisoned. Now war has broken out again, and young elven pilot Shaundar Sunfall is ready to answer the call and face his people's ancient enemies; but he learns that war is no great adventure. (COMPLETED)

Synopsis of Book Two "Brothers in Arms" - After elven pilot Shaundar Sunfall's ship is destroyed and he is imprisoned and tortured, bent on revenge he joins a secret program to infiltrate these new, highly advanced orcs called the "scro," and learns that perhaps they are not so different after all.
