Quick Overview

Anthropologist Walter Skeat's Malay Magic: Being an Introduction to the Folklore and Popular Religion of the Malay Peninsula was written to introduce the reader to the Malay people, of what is now known as Malaysia, and their customs and popular religion.

Topics include nature; man's place in the universe; man's relationship with the supernatural world; Malay gods, spirits, and ghosts; and finally magic rites connected to nature and affecting man are all subjects to which the author has dedicated chapters. The book is thorough, and if not completely exhaustive, still fairly all encompassing of the religious and spiritual beliefs of the Malay. Illustrations are present to better illuminate some of the text.

In their wild state, a Malay once informed me, these women vampires are exceedingly fond of fish, and once and again may be seen "sitting in crowds on the fishing stakes at the river mouth awaiting an opportunity to steal the fish." However that may be, it seems curiously in keeping with the following charm for "laying" a Langsuir.
