New Years General Update!by Styxhexenhammer666
Alright literary world- it's no longer 2020 (most of you are probably deeply thankful for that!) so it's time for a general update laying out some of my literary plans for the new year.
The most important new update I have to give is that because I finished my five occult compilations ahead of schedule I am steaming ahead on my occult reference project; this book of books, of sorts, will list...
Black Magic and Spirits: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This work is the culmination of years of delving into the diabolical; a collection of some of the most black of black magic, often well beyond merely summoning spirits and commanding them. This is the last work of 2020, and a fitting end to such a bizarre year. The following works are included:
-The Ars Goetia; a list of 72 demons and how to summon them.
-The Grand Grimoire: an...
Folk Magic, Superstition, and Charms: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This book is a miscellaneous compilation of many types of occult lore, revolving mostly around folk magic, simple charms, and superstition, including sections on talismans and summoning demons. It includes, as always, an expansive preface tying the material together, and a reading list with two and a half pages of additional works not referenced in the quotations of the volume...
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...
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...
Demonology, a Collection: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is one of four full length works I intend to release in quick order, compiling nine full length texts on demonology, along with an expansive preface, an appendix with notes, and a bibliography for further reading. Titles include...DemonialityKing James' DemonologyDemonomania and WitchcraftDemons and TonguesModern VampirismOn the Operation of DemonsThe Devil: His Origin,...
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...
A Series of Lessons in Gnani Yoga: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is one of Atkinsons' three works on the subject of Yoga, specifically in this edition, Gnani (or Jnani) yoga, one of the main parts of the system.
The book is well written and very interesting, but it ought to be noted that unlike the prior title on Raja yoga, this work is much more philosophical than how-to, and is clearly and purely a Western look at yoga, as opposed to one...
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...
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...
