The results of a British survey reveal that 89 percent of all people display superstitious behavior every now and then. So what can one do when the thirteenth issue of a magazine happens to be published on a Friday the 13th? Dedicate it to the theme of superstition! But this issue of our JMB Journal is not only about bad omens and good-luck charms. Our authors take a close look at superstition and faith, magic and religion, and the often fluid boundaries between them.
