Editor’s Note: I am pleased to say that Willow Moon has granted us permission to share articles written by himself and his late husband Niklas Gander (also known as Tom Johnson) in the early 2000s. Willow and Niklas have been important mentors to me and many others in our beloved Feri tradition. Their generosity in sharing their knowledge, wisdom, and experience has touched many of us over the years, both those who have been their students and those who have corresponded with them from a distance. Their thoughtful contributions to the Witch Eye zine and to online discussion lists helped make them two of our most respected elders. We are deeply grateful that Willow Moon has continued to share his work here on the Anderson-Faery.org blog.
Niklas was a scholar of the Swedish grimoire tradition and an initiate of multiple lineages of witchcraft. He crossed over in 2014 and was beautifully memorialized in The Wild Hunt. Niklas is very much missed, and we are blessed to honor him as one of our ancestors in the Craft.
