I was saddened today to hear of Michael Howard's passing. For those who don't know Howard was a highly influential figure in traditional craft and published The Cauldron journal since the 1970s. He also wrote several books about the craft and folklore and was an Elder of the Cultus Sabbati.
The official notice of his death can be found on the Xoanon Press webite; http://xoanon.co.uk/in-memoriam-michael-howard
He will be missed.
