A fascinating addition to the magical literature of the Elizabethan era, this unique grimoire is a must-have for magic aficionados and historians. Dating from the time of Shakespeare (c. 1580), The Book of Oberon is a meticulous transcription and translation of a magic book recently rediscovered by the Folger Shakespearean Library. Unlike the more theoretical magic books of the era, this is a compilation of practical spells, secrets, and summonings. The Book of Oberon includes rituals for summoning spirits and faeries (including Oberon); original drawings; talismans and charms for toothaches, bleeding, the capture of thieves, and other practical matters; one of the oldest known copies of the magical manual The Enchiridion; and much more.

This elegantly bound book provides new insights into a fascinating tradition, where a sorcerer or cunning-man was paid to perform magic for uncovering theft, healing, combating witchcraft, hunting for treasure, or for having a spirit fulfill one's commands.

'So Katy Wix has written this book of comic monologues and I may have to steal some of them. Although written for the female voice, I dare say they would stand up very well if you were a gentleman and changed the odd word or two. Here you have a book filled with brilliant characters and much funny. Each piece is bubbling with the quirky genius that makes Miss Wix one of the funniest performers / writers around. If I was ever called to audition, which I am not often despite being largely available and willing to try my hand at most things, I would be most grateful to Miss Wix for this fantastic collection. However most likely I shall keep it by my bed to dip into for laughs. It is a very good read. Well done Miss Wix.' Jennifer Saunders There are many monologues books on the market but very few provide rich material for comedy. This collection from up and coming comedian & actress Katy Wix plugs that gap and provides female performers with the kind of wonderfully warm and interesting characters that they need – and deserve. A comedian and writer, Wix has for the past few years been writing audition speeches for students at drama schools including RADA, LAMDA, Drama Centre and The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. A book of contemporary comedy monologues does not exist for today's actor or indeed a book comprising solely of showcase speeches. This is a collection of very funny and original audition speeches filling a significant gap in the market: made up of monologues for various age ranges, each with a running time of two to three minutes. The brevity in length makes these ideal for auditions or showcases and the variety in age and style encompasses different comedic approaches; from the very quirky to the more traditional – perfect for every type of performer.
