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...
The Supernatural In Romantic Literature: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This fairly short work was initially full length and 169 pages long; formatting in that era was often quite interesting. It's an extremely dense overview of many hundreds of bits of literature, the main point of which is to correlate and compare literary tropes, objects, and subjects across books and poetry. The author himself tries to restrain the lore to mostly the medieval and...
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 Dwarfs of Mount Atlas: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is a nice little anthropological booklet that details the presumed existence of a tribe of abnormally small tribe of individuals living in some of the mountainous regions of the Atlas range in central Morocco. Funnily, it is technically possible such a group existed at the time, potentially having splintered off genetic pygmy groups in Central Africa. If such is the case,...
Werwolves; Various Folklore: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is an excellent book, full length and in depth, produced by Elliott O'Donnell, a rather well known figure from the era- indeed, I just got done editing another of his works on spirits.
The lore here takes, mostly, the form of various folk tales from various cultures as far ranging as the Netherlands, France, and Siberia- some of them are quite entertaining short stories, and...
Vampires and Vampirism: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This work is one of a number of interesting titles on the subject of vampirism that come in the late premodern period. Many works even from that interesting early 20th century academic era only fixate on vampires as the bloodsuckers of specifically southeastern European lore- this work manages to extend its scope to Asia and Russia as well and includes a number of interesting...

Short Update Re: Ebooksby Styxhexenhammer666It's time for a short announcement for several important pieces of information for my readers here.
1. I have transferred the files and information for the last 20ish works I have released to kdp. Soon they will be available on kindle as ebooks. I tend to drag my heels for months at a time on such things (because I myself do not like ebooks and tablets, I want physical copies of literary works) and...
General Update For Julyby Styxhexenhammer666As of right now I am juggling several good projects; Puckle's "Funeral Customs" is first on the list, rapidly approaching completion, and will be available probably within a week, indeed possibly two or three more days if I continue editing at the rate I have been for some time.
I have obtained several new works that fit within the herbal and homeopathic category; I still have the South Sea Herbal...
Dragons and Dragon Lore: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is one of the better and more complete works made on the subject of dragons through over a century of time; Ingersoll's work covers so many cultures that it would be fruitless to list them all, but the inclusion of the Hindu nagas and their lore is certainly worth mention.
As far as academic occultism goes this book is good; as far as cryptozoological primary sources go it's...
Magic of the Horse Shoe: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is one of the greater compilations of folklore I have encountered; written by Robert Means Lawrence, it compiles an extremely long and detailed bit of information related to the symbolism and use of horse shoes in the context of good luck and superstition, along with elaborate side topics like the similar superstitious use of salt, or of animals.
Not content to study one...
Lore of the Unicorn: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This work is pure rationalism circa the early 20th century. Penned by Odell Shepard, it goes to great lengths in being as detailed as possible, not limiting itself by time period or region. Speaking of lore as separate as that of Africa and India, the tale of the unicorn (or alicorn) is rendered not simply to a misunderstood and real beast here, but takes on a wider symbology and...
