The Universal Fortune Teller of Mrs. Bridget - Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
The 1790 Universal Fortune Teller is not attributed to Napoleon, although later works containing similar (and sometimes utterly plagiarized) content were. This text contains an elaborate backstory in which the editor claims to have obtained a manuscript from the thatched hut of an old wise woman who had recorded her occult findings in heiroglyphic form. Subsequent to cracking this...
From the Universal Fortune Teller (1790)by Styxhexenhammer666The 1790 version of the Universal Fortune Teller is indeed far stranger than the one I've already released which post-dates it by seventy years. One look at the content and you know you're not exactly reading something from modernity.

Work Begins On 1790 Universal Fortune Teller of Mrs. Bridgetby Styxhexenhammer666I have begun the editing process on the late 1700s Universal Fortune Teller; the forerunner of the 1860 work released by Tousey with the same title.

A Comparison Of Five Overlapping Occult Booksby Styxhexenhammer666What follows is a comparison of five different occult works from two overlapping traditions; the Oraculum and the Fortune Telling hand guide. What might have otherwise been two disparate traditions overlaps so significantly that each time I encountered one of the texts I was surprised to a fairly large degree.
What culminates is a fusion and evolution of two literary traditions; the late 1700s...
The Universal Fortune Teller: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
The Universal Fortune Teller of Fortey's fame is a work vaguely similar to Napoleon's Oraculum- containing some of the same material (in not quite the same form) a full 24 years before the Oraculum was crafted, adding several new elements to the work and removing several others.
This specific work revolves mainly around the reading of tea leaves, palmistry, and a section on charms...
