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...
The Book of Halloween: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This fine collection of folklore, "The Book of Halloween" by Kelley, is primarily a work of European extraction but details the pagan origins of its obvious subject matter. Written at the dawn of the 20th century, it traces the history of Halloween, Samhain, etc, through to the then-modern era, providing numerous examples from folklore, poems, and historical materials of the...
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...
The Useful Family Herbal: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This little work manages to compact a large number of recipes (receipts) into a very small page size. Crafted in the early 19th century, it is semi-antiquated in word usage, but provides cures, preventions, and treatments for things common in the era, such as tuberculosis and palsy.
It should not be particularly surprising that a large proportion of medical recipes here contain...
A Host of New Works I'll Be Working Onby Styxhexenhammer666Little else makes me happier than acquiring new materials to edit and new ideas to write; honestly I think I've found my calling- or at least one of a more generally acceptable nature than analysis and banter on Youtube; admittedly, my latter effort is also skyrocketing in popularity. More copies of my literary works have sold in the first three days of October than were sold in the first four...
The Book of Forbidden Knowledge: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
The Book of Forbidden Knowledge should in no way be judged based on its era and type of manufacture. A simple paperback released at the dawn of the 20th century, it's really more of a modern grimoire influenced by the Oracle/Napoleonic tradition than it is a hand guide of trickery typical of that late Victorian age.
Covering charms, talismans, fortune telling, prognostication,...
General Update: New Works Being Edited, etcby Styxhexenhammer666Just so people know what they're looking forward to here I figured it was time for another general update.
Having released half a dozen new works in alchemy, I think I've sated my appetite for the philosopher's stone for a while- I've proceeded to begin working on literally half a dozen works at the same time, in addition to Sickness in Hell (which is now roughly one third complete.) Because they...
John George Hohman's Pow Wows: An American Grimoire - Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
John George Hohman's "Pow Wows" is one of the best occult texts I've edited. Dating to the 1820s, it was spawned by the Pennsylvania Dutch folk traditions of the era, and may be variously seen as Americana, German-derived occultism, a grimoire, or a snake oil combination of herbal and prayer book.
Within this edition I retained the publishers' inclusions (which Hohman did not...
