Rough Magicke
by John William Houghton
UP Bookstore


A remarkable witch’s brew of supernatural, Christian, classical and scientific arcana, concocted at an all-too-real Midwestern military school. Visit the Campus at: WWW.ANNANDALEMILITARY.COM

"An occult thriller, scary, learned, and charitable in the true tradition of Charles Williams and his fellow Inklings."

—T. A. Shippey, J. R. R. Tolkien: Author of the Century (Houghton Mifflin, 2001) and
The Road to Middle-Earth (Houghton Mifflin, 2003);
editor, The Oxford Book of Fantasy Stories (1994)

"Intellectual and literary, Rough Magicke juxtaposes the arcane and the sacred while providing a glimpse of the divine. It’s Dead Poets Society with a dash of Harry Potter and The Name of the Rose."

—Mike Brotherton, Star Dragon (Tor Books, 2003) and
Spider Star (coming in 2006)

"Rough Magicke is Goodbye, Mr. Chips meets The Father Brown Mysteries, with the welcome and in fact sorely needed addition of witchcraft, telepathy, quicksand and magic rings."

—Mark O’Donnell, Getting Over Homer (Knopf, 1996) and
Broadway’s Hairspray
