"Ever since its initial publication, Practical Candleburning Rituals has been the first book that one consults and the standard against which all other books must be judged. This book was the first of its kind...and in my mind, it is still the very best."--Ed Fitch, author of Magical Rites from the Crystal Well
"Ray Buckland's Practical Candleburning Rituals is as well researched and authoritative as his other numerous works. It is certainly a source to recommend."--Professor Hans Holzer, author of Life Beyond Life
