Wizards Book – Help Me Choose The Cover

Right. I have two cover ideas that I like and I cannot decide between them So, I am asking you to help me pick one.

The book is called ‘Wizards, Warlocks And Magicians: Incredible True Stories of Magic and Sorcery‘

It tells the story of several real life magicians and their bizarre stories. People like Agrippa, Apollonius, Nicholas Flamel, Austin Osman Spare and many more…..

Here are the first paragraphs of the first 3 chapters..

These days the most famous wizard of them all is likely to be Harry Potter. Harry is, of course, fictional and for many people, wizards and warlocks are also just things of fiction. But what if I told you that I study magic? What if I told you that there is a world of schools of magick and real magicians out there? Well, I do and there is. What if I told you that real magicians can actually be far more fantastical than the fictitious Harry Potter?

Apollonius was born a little before Jesus of Nazareth and came from Tyana in Turkey. He was reputedly very gifted, very physically beauty and also extremely wealthy. He spent his early developmental years surrounded by both luxury and fortune, and at the age of 14, he was sent to Tarsus to complete his schooling. Studying the philosophy of Pythagoras and other Greek magician – philosophers, Apollonius took on an ascetic, almost hippy-like, lifestyle in stark contrast both to the environment of the time and his own inheritance. He is said to have remained a lifelong virgin, practiced vegetarianism, grew his hair long, wore simple linen clothes and went about barefoot.

You may already know of Simon Magus if you have read the Bible. He was the first Gnostic and the founder of the Simonian sect of gnostic Christians. Unfortunately, his enemies in the early Christian church wrote much of what we think we know about him today and, just as with Apollonius, they truly demonized him. But was he really a magician?

So now the choice.
