During the late thirteenth and early fourteenth centuries a group of monks with occult interests donated what became a remarkable collection of more than thirty magic texts to the library of the Benedictine abbey of St. Augustine’s in Canterbury. The monks collected texts that provided positive justifications for the practice of magic and books in which works of magic were copied side by side with works of more licit genres. In Magic in the Cloister, Sophie Page uses this collection to explore the gradual shift toward more positive attitudes to magical texts and ideas in medieval Europe. She examines what attracted monks to magic texts, in spite of the dangers involved in studying condemned works, and how the monks combined magic with their intellectual interests and monastic life. By showing how it was possible for religious insiders to integrate magical studies with their orthodox worldview, Magic in the Cloister contributes to a broader understanding of the role of magical texts and ideas and their acceptance in the late Middle Ages.

As the first collection of literary criticism focusing on Alberta writers, Wild Words establishes a basis for identifying Alberta fiction, poetry, drama, and nonfiction as valid subjects of study in their own right. The idea for this collection began with 100 years of literary tradition for Alberta's centenary. However, Alberta's literary roots go back much farther than that to the oration of First Nation's peoples and the colonizing exploration and travel literature of the 18th and 19th centuries.

'These enchanting words make the world feel less broken' - Emma Mitchell, author of The Wild Remedy 'Part-primer, part-chronicle; a fresh and personal account of a contemporary witch's year told with lucidity and verve' - Eley Williams, author of The Liar's Dictionary 'Witches occupy a clear place in contemporary imagination. We can see them, emerging shadowy, from the corners of the past: mad, glamorous, difficult, strange. They haunt the footnotes of history - from medieval witches burning at the stake to the lurid glamour of the 1970s witchcraft revival. But they are moving out of history, too. Witches are back. They're feminist, independent, invested in self-care and care for the world. They are here, because they must be needed...' In A Spell in the Wild, Alice Tarbuck explores what it means to be a witch today. Where 'witch' was once a dangerous - and often deadly - accusation, it is now a proud self-definition. And as the world becomes ever more complicated and we face ecological, political, social and global health crises, witchcraft is experiencing a resurgence. Magic is back. Alice describes what she practises as 'intersectional, accessible' witchcraft - it's about the magic you can find in an overgrown snicket or a sixth floor stairwell; whatever your gender; whether you're able to climb a mountain or can't leave the house. Month by month, Alice walks us through everyday magic for extraordinary times. 'A Spell in the Wild is a beautiful and intimate set of reflections on the persistence and necessity of magic, not just in our mythologies but our in daily accommodations with the changing natural world' - Paraic O'Donnell 'The wise words in A Spell in the Wild offer solace for our hearts and homes in a changing world. Every reader will find themselves under her spell' - Nancy Campbell, author of The Library of Ice
