"I would like to emphasise this as being particularly valuable - the today's stage of belief in witch phenomena and has already been particularly well-received by the profession - especially as regards folkloristics, ethnology and cultural anthropology, not only among Slovenian scholars, but also in the broad region of the former-Yugoslav countries ... ." (Suzana Marjanic, FABULA - Zeitschrift für Erzählforschung, Vol. 60 (1-2), 2019)
"Mencej's study combines discussion of these broad, theoretical issues with the concrete level of everyday perceptions of magical harm described by her interviewees. ... Thorough, learned and surprising at many turns, this is an important work on the persistence of traditional, even archaic, magical and witch beliefs into the present." (Mary R. O'Neil,, July, 2018)
