Black Fly Season by Giles Blunt. An interesting book, because it didn’t try to hide who the murderer was. And, all in all, a good book that kept me thinking all the way through. I wanted to finish it, despite the occasionally stupid remarks that obviously hadn’t been researched. Although Palo Mayombe itself seemed to have been researched quite well, I doubt this book would make happy reading for its modern-day practitioners.


To be fair, as a researcher in different Pagan religions, I am biased. I just don’t like to see sloppy research into an area that really doesn’t need any more bad press. Still, all that aside, it was a pretty fun read, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it as a light holiday book. Just don’t take its views on Pagan religion as gospel.
