in a former incarnation was a magazine of Wicca, Paganism and all
things magickal that flourished merrily between 1984 and 1994.
its new whizz-bang electronic form, Shadowplay will give a sort
of 'Greatest Hits' package of the articles, artwork and miscellaneous
odds and sods that filled the pages of the 28 issues produced during
that decade. However, because we get bored easily, we'll also be
including a range of new material in the future, while adding more
material from the 'hard copy' 84-94 era.
who've been with us for the long haul and have a request for a favourite
article you remember, please email us and we'll see what we can
note to contributors from the old days: if you find any of your
material from ye olden days on this site and would rather it wasn't
there, please email us and it'll be gone in an instant. Similarly,
if you're happy to be part of the site, but would have a different
nom de plume for the web, we'll make the changes quick as winking.
t'other hand, if you're not only happy to be on the site but would
like to be on the Cast and Crew pages,
have links to your own site or promote any other projects you might
have, we're very happy to oblige there too.
contributions and, indeed, contributors are thrice blessed. Please
see the Your Bit page.
