Protect yourself (and maybe indulge in a little payback) with practical instructions from one of the most beloved figures of Wicca and the Neo-Pagan movement.

Utterly Wicked is one of the most important books I own and one that every serious witch and magickal practitioner should have on their shelf.” —Mat Auryn, author of The Psychic Witch

Hexes, curses, and other unsavory notions—most magical practitioners won’t even discuss them. Why? Because they’d much rather find a positive solution that benefits all concerned. And there’s nothing wrong with that. Occasionally, though, our problems are such that nothing in the positive solution arena will handle them.

It’s time to make a decision to stand tough, be strong, and take definitive action to defend ourselves. And if you‘re ready to do that—if you‘re ready to own that action and take responsibility for it—then Utterly Wicked is for you.

Jam-packed with more than one hundred rituals, incantations, hexes, and curses, this is the quintessential primer for learning all the magical tricks no one wants to talk about. Do you know the proper way to enter a cemetery? Utterly Wicked tells you how, as well as the proper methods for collecting and using graveyard dirt. Explore the little-known secrets of the 11-inch fashion doll, and see why it‘s become such a valuable magical tool. Learn how to prepare Hot Foot Powder, Four Thieves Vinegar, Goofer Dust, and other magical components designed to obliterate your toughest problems. Most important, you‘ll find the tools to protect yourself, your family, and your home from ever being bothered with these sorts of difficulties again.

"Utterly Wicked is one of the most important books I own and one that every serious witch and magickal practitioner should have on their shelf.” --Mat Auryn, author of Psychic Witch
— Mat Auryn

“Empowering and invigorating, Utterly Wicked: Hexes, Curses, and Other Unsavory Notions is true to its title as it contains an array of fiercely shrewd and cunning magical spells of justified revenge for every imaginable circumstance.  It is also brimming with an abundance of recipes to make oils, powders and washes not only for cursing purposes but for self-confidence, protection and more! After having read this book, it is clearly apparent that Dorothy Morrison is an exceptionally devoted teacher. Most impressive, however, is her ongoing compassionate concern for her readers’ psychological and spiritual well-being. This book is, without a doubt, a treasure chest of precious information.” -- Miss Aida, author of Hoodoo Cleansing and Protection Magic

— Miss Aida

“Sassy, wise, and wonderful, Dorothy Morrison’s Utterly Wicked opens the gateway into a witchcraft garden that has been largely ignored. This book is filled with creative ideas for turning the tables, declaring personal agency, and correcting life’s little quagmires. Highly recommended by this village witch—go buy it!” -- H. Byron Ballard, author of Earth Works: Ceremonies in Tower Time

— H. Byron Ballard

“I cannot say enough about Utterly Wicked!  If I were to describe this book, I would call it utterly amazing, utterly thorough, and utterly potent.  Dorothy goes through the side of magic that is talked about more in whispers than it is spoken about openly.  She has done a phenomenal job in showing the reader practical applications that will enable them to send their worst enemy to hell and look forward to the trip!  Utterly Wicked is filled with priceless knowledge that any practitioner of magic should have.  From rats to roaches, hair to fingernails, this book has it all! I cannot recommend Utterly Wicked highly enough to anyone that has a desire to learn.  The power in this magical writing is one that will bring change to both the reader and their enemies!” – Hoodoo Sen Moise, author of Working Conjure.

— Hoodoo Sen Moise

"Dorothy Morrison is a wonderfully magickal powerhouse. Utterly Wicked is a groundbreaking and necessary work that tells honest truths and, more importantly, provides strong solutions for every eventuality. It is a must have for any spiritual person worth their salt."  -- Lilith Dorsey, author of Love Magic

— Lilith Dorsey

"Dorothy Morrison knows that in real witchcraft wars, you don’t bring beach sand to a graveyard dirt fight. Yet, protection and defense are two aspects of modern-day witchcraft that are often misunderstood. Whether a neophyte or an adept in the magickal arts, I highly recommend Dorothy Morrison’s Utterly Wicked: Hexes, Curses and Unsavory Notions as the perfect introduction to this body of knowledge --Denise Alvarado, author of The Magic of Marie Laveau and The Voodoo Hoodoo Spellbook

— Denise Alvarado

 “Dorothy Morrison has created a book magical people have long needed. Sometimes it is okay to curse and enact magic in anger, and she is not afraid to show us how. This collection of spells and ritual is lively, entertaining, informative, and–more importantly–forces us to a new level of self-responsibility and spiritual introspection. I applaud Dorothy’s courage for making this controversial material available after all too many years of suppression and needless fear.” –Edain McCoy, author of In a Graveyard at Midnight and Advanced Witchcraft.
