The idea of “death magic” is majorly misunderstood and you probably have no idea how often you are actually doing little acts of necromancy in your own life. We have a deep conversation with author Mortellus about what the practice of necromany is really all about and how they came to be where they are today.  Their new book, “The Bones Fall in a Spiral: An Introduction to Necromancy and the Magic of Death” will be available in October 2023!

Mortellus is a lineaged Third Degree Gardnerian High Priestex of the Long Island Line. Presently busy at work on their third book, with the second, “The Bones Fall in a Spiral: A Necromantic Primer” completed and arriving soon. In addition to their role as High Priestex, Mortellus is a Mortician, and holds degrees in Design, Education, Fine Arts, and Mortuary Sciences. Their areas of expertise include necromancy, necrobotany, mediumship, and the funerary rites of minority faith groups. Currently residing in Western North Carolina on three acres that doubles as the Covenstead for the Coven of Leaves with their spouse, adult child, AMAB/AFAB twins, and dog; generally wishing there was more time in the day for hiding in the studio and playing with clay.
