This is most strange. A while ago a luxery printed “The Secrets Of High Magic” was made available in Dutch through the cheap bookshops in the witchy witches and new age section. I didn’t think this was a very good idea, because this book is a simple, but detailed manual of the more serious kinds of magic. Now that everyone has gotten into problems by trying everything out, a translation of “The Magic Shield” is published in Dutch in a similar book: fake leather and cut to look old. This book is to protect you against the people who learned themselves the possibilties of the previous book. Yet, again it is well written, highly informative, understandable and it comes with an index. Well, better this book in the regular bookshop than the other one.
