Duns McCleary teaches English at a small California college. No one has paid much attention to his book on Shakespeare's use of the occult except for a Hollywood writer who claims to be part of a group keeping alive the same underground tradition as the witches of Elizabethan times. What Duns cannot suspect is that the world of a desperate British coven attempting to invoke supernatural forces against the threat of the Armada would now invade his own household when his young daughter uncovers a medallion once used by these witches to call up the demon Mendaga. The little girl knows only that somehow she has come to share her consciousness with all the women who through the centuries had ever been part of Mendaga's world. Duns must rely on new friends to free her, but what if she does not want to be freed?

While entirely fiction I did attempt to capture something of the reality of the Wiccan scene in Southern California at the time I was writing. What was particularly striking was the overlap among Wiccan leaders, science-fiction authors, and members of the Society for Creative Anachronism. The novel followed publication of Living with Magic as well as a community college course I offered on philosophy and the occult which itself had led to increased contacts with individuals in the Wiccan community. Involved in all that had been a set of experiences that obviously could be open to different interpretations, one of which was that shared beliefs (or rather actions involving what I might call as-if beliefs) could in fact lead to events that appeared to express the reality of supernatural entities (ghosts, demons, etc.). My character Mendaga like the book The Minor Rule of Solomon is entirely my own invention but is based on traditional notions seen through the different lens of contemporary psychic research. What happens in the novel, then, does become something that in fact could imaginably happen in real life.About the Author:
David Farren is the pseudonym of a college professor who became a participant-observer in the emerging scene of Wicca in Southern California. After three non-fiction books, two of which were with Carlos Castaneda's agent and his editor, he turned his attention to a fictional portrayal of that scene. "Mendaga's Morning" was originally published in England, where the modern Wiccan tradition developed, and now is being made available to American readers.
