Folk Medicine, A Collection: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is yet another full length compilation of texts and content from texts which I have crafted- I have to say it is thus far my favorite of all the compilations, and deals with medical lore from multiple subgenres.
The first section contains, verbatim, the famous Regimen Salernitus Salernitanum, a medieval work on dietary and similar science, and then proceeds with sections on...
Fortune Telling and Divination: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This collection of fortune telling lore is parsed into several sections and spans a couple of centuries. It is a compilation of materials from my own edited works on subjects such as dream interpretation, astrology, oracles, and other practices used to discern ones' fate. I wanted to provide as broad and lengthy an overview of these systems as possible in this excellent work,...
Alchemy Collection: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This full length work is the alchemical companion to my prior compilation of demonological lore. It contains fourteen separate full length works ranging from philosophical tracts to chemical experiments, with a full preface, short bibliography and list of terms, and an appendix with a few snippets from other alchemy texts I have edited.
It is meant largely for those interested in...

General Update Time: 300 Editions, Time for Phase Three!by Styxhexenhammer666
A happy announcement!
Now that the second phase of my great work is done (that of creating 300 different editions of occult literature to greatly enhance the availability of reasonably priced, properly formatted modern works of the type) it is time to move on to a smattering of important projects which I have amassed over time but had to perpetually hold off on til I had completed all of those...
The Stigmata: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This fine little work is a compilation of tales of the Stigmata as reported over the course of centuries by the Catholic church. The phenomenon itself is the appearance of marks on the body commensurate with the wounds imparted on Jesus during crucifixion. Regardless of whether you believe in such a phenomenon, it's a very valuable bit of history pertinent to the Catholic...
Popular Home Remedies and Superstitions: Of the Pennsylvania Germans: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This little work is a dense compilation of folklore and superstition from the Pennsylvania Germans, compiled partly from Hohmans' "Pow Wows" and from Albertus' Magnus "Egyptian Secrets". Some of the lore is obscure, some well known, and part of it is quasi-medicinal. The obviously skeptic author of the work makes numerous sarcastic remarks about the folk magick herein, and the...
Birds in Legend and Folklore: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is a full length work dedicated to a fairly exhaustive treatment of hundreds of cultures spanning thousands of years in their use of birds in a folkloric capacity. The density of the book is high, owing to its academic, rigorous nature, and those intrigued by ornithology will probably enjoy this work as well as cryptid lovers and folklore buffs.
It is very much worth noting...
Exposition of the Doctrine of Karma: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This book is a nice analysis of the idea of karma, from a specifically Theosophical perspective. The authors' name is a pseudonym so it isn't entirely clear which theosophist actually compiled the materials here. It's a more legitimate take on the subject than much literature about karma- often it is boiled down to a simplified, singular idea and ideas like national or group karma...
The Yoga Aphorisms of Patanjali: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This little work is comprised of a series of short statements on the Yogic system by the enigmatic figure of Patanjali, as analyzed and interpreted (using a prior translation) by Theosophist William Q. Judge. The actual subtopics are numerous; mystic powers, reincarnation, meditation, and so forth. It should be noted that Judges' surmising in the preface with regards to Patanjali...
Telling Fortunes by Tea Leaves: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This excellent little fortune telling work is illustrated with examples involving the telling of fortunes by tea, using a Nelros cup (still available for sale, it was quite popular then as it is now.) About seventy pages of the content is encyclopedic and solely involves listing the meanings of different figures in tea cups, left over from loose tea brewing; one of the most common...
The Religion of Ancient Palestine: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
Here is another creation series work, one which I finished a week ago but which got caught up in Amazons' massively slow processing system. It is partly linguistic but unlike the last two titles is mostly about religious history and how the various spiritual systems that would contribute to Judeochristianity co-evolved and borrowed imagery and words and ideas from one another. It...
