More About the Author

In 1962 I came to the U.S. from England, where I'd written comedy scripts and was personal scriptwriter for a popular British comedian. Interested in the occult for over sixty years, in the past fifty years I've had over fifty books published (fiction and non-fiction), with nearly two million copies in print and translated into seventeen foreign languages. I've received awards for my work and had books featured in several national book clubs. I was Technical Director for movies, working with Orson Wells, John Carradine, Vincent Price and William Friedkin (director of The Exorcist). Of Romany descent, I'm an authority on Gypsies and have written several books on them. I've lectured at colleges and universities and been the subject of articles in newspapers and magazines: New York Times, Los Angeles Times, New York Daily News, New York Sunday News, National Observer, Cleveland Plain Dealer, Look Magazine, Cosmopolitan, True, and others.

I've appeared on national television and radio talk shows and been on BBC-TV, England, RAI-TV, Italy, and CBC-TV, Canada. I appeared extensively on stage in England and played small character parts in movies in America. I taught courses at colleges and universities and have been a featured speaker at conferences and workshops. I'm listed in reference works including Contemporary Authors, Who's Who In America, Men of Achievement, and International Authors' and Writers' Who's Who.

Recent books include Atomic Sunrise, The Spirit Book, Buckland's Book of Spirit Communications, Golden Illuminati, and Solitary Seance. A DVD version of my Wicca video has also recently been released: Rebirth of the Old Religion. A prolific author, I just signed a multi-book contract with Penguin/Berkley for a Victorian mystery series. Today I live on a farm in north-central Ohio. Photo Credit: Gregory Ford

This cute little inexpensive book offers a lot of information on methods of divination different than the tarot and runes. I especially enjoy the section on die casting; although most of the questions are about love, I found the answers to be amazingly accurate. The rest of the book contains hand reading, tea leaves, crystal gazing, card reading, dominoes, moles, fire reading, gemstones, knives, and omens. A good resource for those who wish to try their hand at divination.

This book is great for anyone interested in divination, It not only explains various forms of divination it shows you how to perform these magnificent feats. I have been practicing divination for some time now and this is an excellent addition to the art.

This book had many ways of divination in which to use. It had great areas in which you could apply the divination. I have read this book so many times the pages are falling out! That is how much I loved this book!

Format: Paperback
This little book is awesome !!! I find it hard to leave this book alone since i got it.
Gypsy Fortune telling Features: Palmistry, Tea leaf reading, Dice, Poker Card, Tarot Card and others.
My favorite has always been the dice method, which is easy and accurate and the palmistry section, which is very informative and i hope that this section could be expanded.
This little book is worth the money and the time.
Overall, excellent and clear illustrations, definitions and explanations on every method. Ray gave good instructions in this book.
i only wish that every section in this book could be more elaborated.

I am a fan of Raymond Buckland's books but I have to say I was rather disappointed in this book. A lot of the information can be found in any basic book on divination or fortunetelling. With that being said, if you already have books on the subject you probably do not need this one. There are plenty of other books that go into way more detail than what you will ever find here.

A lot can be said about reading one's palm. "To be or not to be." Shakespeare predicts Hamlet's future. Was he part Gypsy?
My English grandmother used to read the tea leaves in my tea cup with marvelous mystery. Was she part Gypsy? There could be some Gypsy in all of us if we would stop and smell the roses.
