Editing Begins Anew!by Styxhexenhammer666Alright everyone!
I have finally begun editing new works; I decided to start with a basically rationalist work entitled "A Treatise on Magic" and will proceed through dozens of works through the year. I'd like to have released the 250th edition before New Years' day.
Some of these works will be illustrated- a couple of herbals, a work by Hall, etc. I am proceeding in whatever order I feel...
Phallic Miscellanies: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This work is one of a number that comprised the phallic series, purportedly crafted by Hargrave Jennings anonymously to skirt censorship due to the taboo nature of the subject; it titillates the reader by rendering the solar, phallicist worship of the linga etc to degenerated status, then refusing to flesh out the more lurid parts of cultish ritual. Indeed the work isn't inaccurate...
The Veil of Isis: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
If it's folklore you want it's folklore you get! This work starts out as a slightly dry, historical look at the druids, before becoming almost a completely different work which combines a bit of Masonic and Catholic pagan symbolism (the kind you find on the 'weird' side of the internet) with then-modern folklore both in and out of the British Isles. Considering the dedication...
The Dwarfs of Mount Atlas: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is a nice little anthropological booklet that details the presumed existence of a tribe of abnormally small tribe of individuals living in some of the mountainous regions of the Atlas range in central Morocco. Funnily, it is technically possible such a group existed at the time, potentially having splintered off genetic pygmy groups in Central Africa. If such is the case,...
Werwolves; Various Folklore: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is an excellent book, full length and in depth, produced by Elliott O'Donnell, a rather well known figure from the era- indeed, I just got done editing another of his works on spirits.
The lore here takes, mostly, the form of various folk tales from various cultures as far ranging as the Netherlands, France, and Siberia- some of them are quite entertaining short stories, and...
Animism, the Seed of Religion: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is of interest potentially to two groups of people; the occultist will here find some interesting folk tales and spiritual rites from cultures then being actively studied at the height of the colonial era, and the history buff will find in these pages an interesting but sometimes outdated colonial perspective on non-European cultures. It focuses mostly on African lore but...
Psychedelic Spirituality Second Edition: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This work was one of my favorites to write- deviating partly from the academic and geared more towards my own anecdotes of psychedelic usage, I crafted this book not so much as an educational guide as a compilation of shorter sections which deviate in purpose and look to the historical, the spiritual, and sometimes the legal.
It is substantially similar to the first edition...
Demonism Verified and Analyzed: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This work is an excellent look at some of the christian conceptions of demonology from its era, in the roaring twenties. Based on field work in China and India, mostly by the author but referencing other missionaries as well, it purports to prove that demons exist, that evil is the agency of Satan, and that mesmerism and psychology play a role in possession.
It contains several...
Funeral Customs: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This extremely interesting work is sadly little-known despite its scope; several thousand years of human history and a dozen or so cultures, with all funerary rites they're associated with- from the memento mori and then-modern practices back through embalming, interring, or burning corpses.
The greatest part of this work is its general mention of the slow (or occasionally...
General Update: Five Works Coming Down Fastby Styxhexenhammer666In happy news, I spent the last couple of days (due to excessive heat) not wanting to do any harder literary work, and as such I preferred to complete a short alchemical text (which will be available later this very same day) and to format three works in addition to the two edited herbals awaiting their artwork- when the artwork will be done I am not 100% sure, but I've seen the progress and it's...

A Blog Redesign and General Update!by Styxhexenhammer666At last it is time that my blog here has begun to grow out of its original format. I am actively planning the preliminary stages of acquiring a website to host my material (this blog will cross-link to it and the two operate in tandem using the benefits of both blogspot and my own website, which won't exist for some months to come.)
I have made a major decision in format for this blog; it doesn't...
