Here is what James Luce had to say after reading this book:
"I Just wanted to announce my most joyous experience I had when reading Brother Kotah's new book "A Darker Light. All I can say is wow! He has created works which will tug on hearts and intrigue the mind with the vivid imagery of his story telling.
Among my favorites are Amanda's Last Breath, a heart jerker where meaningful words are manifested from the loss of someone special. Oh What a Tangled Web... where a spiders web is a metaphor for lies. This ends with a visual surprise! Money Does Not a Restless Spirit Soothe, Where the spirits of mistreated workers comeback and avenge an insult the company ensues upon their families.
It is obvious from reading Ronald J. Dayton's creations that he is a very talented writer and cares deeply about his art. You can count me amongst his fans. May your inquisitive mind bloom and creations blossom."
This excursion into the world of Bizzarism is a collection of powerful but simple bizarre effects as well as poems and stories useful for atmosphere and just plain getting you in the ookie mood.
Set to release in February, this book features over 30 bizarre effects presented in story form. Not for the novice, this book simply hints at methodology, preferring instead, as with all good bizarre magick, to focus on the presentation and mood.
Bizarre magick seems to be the final progression for many entertainers. We grow tired of amusing only ourselves, and seek to add real power and amazement to what we do. As we venture into the work of magick, with a K- the real stuff, we often find that our traditional performances shift as well. We move from one who simply does tricks, into the ranks of one who entertains, and that dear friends is real magic!
A Darker Light will be printed in soft cover 8.5" X 11" format, and is sure to please the dark side of your performers soul.
