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...
Magic and Fetishism: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is a very dense little work which is almost entirely comprised of notes and segments on African and Asian tribal groups and their use of physical objects in a ritual context, often as little charms or "fetishes" as they were termed then. Importantly, the modern (and sexual) use of this term does not here apply.
Some of the stories are outright humorous; most of them are fairly...
The Power of Gems and Charms: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is one of the better works I have edited; academic in form, technically, but able to be used in a literal fashion for those practicing the occult, it is a laundry list of folklore and history regarding the use of charms for various purposes- luck, protection, love, etc. From simplistic "mascottes" to the bones of saints and legendary objects, it catalogs an enormous amount of...

Covering charms, talismans, fortune telling, prognostication,...
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...
Napoleon's Oraculum - Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
At long last one of the best writings ever made on the topic of fortune telling and divination is available. Having reviewed other variants of the work available for sale, they are all substantially more expensive and most are primitive facsimiles. My works are never facsimile copies and are always fully edited by hand. I'd by lying if I said I didn't feel proud of this slower,...
