Have you ever wondered where the line between reality and fiction becomes crossed when discussing the supernatural? Do you wish to journey beyond the darkness and discover Salem's hidden secrets at the time when the veil between the living and the dead is most thin?
Join Kristin Harris and Allison French, your Life After Midnight: Strange History Salem Style hosts as they take you on a journey through the dark alleys of Salem, and explore the connection between Salem's spooky present, and its paranormal past. We will show you how Salem and the supernatural have always been, and will always be intertwined in the history of the Witch City, and tell you some spooky tales in between.
In collaboration with FunDead Publications, join us in the only remaining building in Salem with ties to the Witch Trials of 1692 for a night of history and horror, where you will hear how superstition gripped the real people of the town, and then hear some new legends of fiction, as you are immersed in the storytelling of authors Amber Newberry and Laurie Moran, Salem's leading ladies of Horror.
Ghosts, Witches, Murder and Mystery await you... join us.

An Excellent Book of Necromancy: Introducing a
Sixteenth-century Handbook of Magic, An Illustrated
Lecture with Al Cummins
Date: October 19, 2017
Location: Witch House
310 1/2 Essex Street Salem, Ma
The Excellent Booke of the Arte of Magick and its
attendant Visions are two historically underappreciated
documents of English necromancy. The former is a
sixteenth-century handbook concerning the summoning
of (mainly demonic) spirits and the ghosts of dead
magicians. The latter manuscript is a record of the
visions and instructions given by these spirits (along with
angels, saints, and even King Solomon himself) that
made up the Excellent Booke itself. Details of early
modern conjuration not often explored are laid bare in
these behind-the-scenes records of writing a grimoire.
Together these texts offer unique insights, both for
historians and practitioners.
Dr. Alexander Cummins is an historian, poet, and diviner.
His first book, The Starry Rubric: Seventeenth-century
English Astrology and Magic was released through
Hadean Press in 2012, and he has authored articles on
topics ranging from millenarianism, to the material history
of amulets, to herbs in the grimoires, to the occult history
and philosophy of the cut-up technique. Al curates an
archive of scanned textswww.grimoiresontape.tumblr.com
