Ligia Luckhurst

Ligia Luckhurst is author of fiction, children’s fiction, non-fiction, screenplays and drama. Reflecting the concepts and the principles taught by Carlos Castaneda, her work is inspired by myth and folk-tales, by authors like Kipling, T.H. White, Isak Dinesen and the classics, but above all by George Lucas’ Star Wars. In her non-fiction, she follows the trail of Joseph Campbell in investigating the possibility of magic as a viable mode of existence.
Ligia lives in Twickenham, UK.

Ligia's picture can already be found on the About Hade page, so here is Feathered Coyote instead.

Armando Torres

Not much is known about Armando. As a student of journalism in Mexico City he used to attend public talks given by Carlos Castaneda, anthropologist and author of twelve best-selling books about his apprenticeship with don Juan Matus, a sorcerer-seer he met during his field study of the use of psychotropic plants among the Sonoran Yaquis.
Although Castaneda’s training required him to shun close relationships with the uninitiated, Torres became his friend and confidant. He described his experiences in his first book, “Encounters with the Nagual: Conversations with Carlos Castaneda”.

Remaining elusive, Armando Torres lives and practises with a group of healers-seers at an unknown location in rural Mexico.


Vesna Ćuro-Tomić

Published for the first time in English, Vesna is one of the most interesting modern Croatian writers and possibly the most modern one among them. Her urbane, ironic gaze, self-involved, self-regarding, self-pitying and self-parodying all at once, still somehow manages to register the quotidien in all its pathetic ghastliness without losing sight of its underpinning redemptive magic. Her virtuoso mastery of narrative form is as demanding as it is rewarding, propelling the reader towards an unexpected, breathtaking end.

Born in 1954 in Sarajevo, Vesna graduated English Studies and Comparative Literature from Zagreb University. She is currently Programme Editor for Feature and Television Films at HRT (Croatian Radio and Television).
