“In case you don’t already know, Invocation is not your typical magic magazine. On the contrary, it is a magazine consciously “Devoted to Weird and Bizarre Magick.” …Invocation, then, stands as a reminder to magicians that there is an older magic, a deeper and perhaps even darker tradition that has quietly spread underground for centuries – banished temporarily by Robert-Houdin when he exchanged the wizard’s robes for the contemporary dress of the day. This older magic stretches back in time and history far beyond the point where written records begin. …And so Invocation gives us magic for the few and not for the many. Perhaps this is as it should be.”
