The Burning Lies: Witches, Radical Feminists, and Nazis
A short zine about about the curious life of an invented fact. Scholars peg early modern European witch-hunt deaths at 40,000, but estimates in the millions continue to circulate in feminist and Pagan communities. Where did these gross exaggerations come from, and what uses have they been put to? After reading this zine, you will know!

I wrote the bulk of this essay in 2021, but was finally inspired to do layout this summer. Big thanks to my wife for her help with the design and typography!

It was hard to read the full graphics version of the zine on-screen because that version was imposed for printing, so I added a new pdf that puts it in the right order for reading on your computer.
