Myths and Legends of Flowers, Trees, Fruits, and Plants: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This excellent book is full length and contains a laundry list of fascinating legend and folklore about botanical species- it specifically dwells a lot on Greco-Roman, Arthurian, and then modern (largely European, sometimes American) lore. It is of great interest noting how humans have lopsidedly created stories about some species so much more than others; the rose, the oak, and...
Esoteric Buddhism: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
AP Sinnett is the author of this fascinating book- his probably most well known, and one of the better written.
The number of topics covered within it are vast but there are two especially which concern the modern occultist perhaps most of all; the treatment of nirvana, devachan, and the general concept of the afterlife and reincarnation cycle first and foremost, and second to it,...
Stars of Destiny: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is quite a good work, relatively lengthy and somewhat dense. It is purely astrological and includes the basic meaning of the twelve signs, the meaning of each celestial bodies' movements in each of the twelve houses, and the categorization of the twenty four hours of the day and what to do (or not do) in basic terms for business, travel, etc, based on the reigning planet. It...
A Compendium of Heathen Mythology: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is a rather short work, one written in the middle of the 19th century. Marketed to young, middle and upper middle class females, it is a sort of pagan primer- one which outcompeted contemporary works by amusingly including Hindu and Egyptian material alongside the then-standard Greek and Roman.
This amusing aside does not detract from the content- it is as good as any similar...
Modern Vampirism: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is one of the flat-out weirdest works I've ever edited; a short work, it treats on poetry and prose related to vampires, details both blood drinking and psychic attack, and altogether appears to endorse the concept that literal vampires- that is, in the strain of Dracula, able to keep a corpse semi-alive or appear in apparitional form- are both real and very dangerous....
The Devil: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This little work is a nice little addition to the spiritual library being amassed here- it isn't about magic though, it's actually a reformist tract from the godfather of agnosticism aimed at bringing the idea of Hell and Satan low. It's a pretty good two pronged argument too, since it focuses on the rational (contraditions in the Bible, etc) and the emotional (the ethics of such...
