The Hindu Book of Astrology: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
The Hindu Book of Astrology is slightly mistitled- it is indeed a Western astrological work with some Eastern fusion within its pages; that hardly detracts from the content, since texts from this era tended to do that quite often, especially with Hinduism.
It includes all the signs of the Zodiac, the cusps, the colors, gems, diseases, and so forth of each sign, within a fairly...
The Seaside Sybil: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
The Seaside Sybil is a strange little work. Written in 1882 and almost entirely New York-centric in style, it proposes a rather simple oracle system; 100 possible fortunes are present, and the numbers 1 through 100 placed on slips of paper and one drawn at random to consult the oracle.
The oracle itself is what concerns, of course, the occult audience- also of interest here though...

General Update: Greater Key, Sickness in Hell, Phallism, Moreby Styxhexenhammer666It's time for another brief update, brief because I am still largely working on aforementioned texts.
The Greater Key of Solomon, Mathers' lighter, perhaps more then-culturally acceptable counterpart to the Lemegeton, is entering the final stage of editing; tomorrow I expect to complete this task and proofread it, probably in its entirety, before moving on to the illustrations. It is possible that...
Hieroglyphical Fortune Teller: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
In a stroke of good luck I happened upon this work while researching the early 1900s Oraculum; the Dream Book version, as opposed to Tousey's far better Book of Fate version.
A slimmed down work, it contains an expansive oracle in place of Tousey's shorter oracle twain with other content. As a pure fortune telling manuscript, it revolves around asking one of 26 questions, then...
What Your Neighbor's Say: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This little booklet is one of the most bizarre things I've ever edited. It manages to combine Victorian-Era quack medicine (various and often psychotropic pills and tablets) with a fairly decent dream interpretation section (similar to that of Tousey's "Napoleon's Oraculum) and multiple "recipes for invalids." It also contains some folkish material, specifically regarding the...
The Universal Fortune Teller of Mrs. Bridget - Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
The 1790 Universal Fortune Teller is not attributed to Napoleon, although later works containing similar (and sometimes utterly plagiarized) content were. This text contains an elaborate backstory in which the editor claims to have obtained a manuscript from the thatched hut of an old wise woman who had recorded her occult findings in heiroglyphic form. Subsequent to cracking this...
From the Universal Fortune Teller (1790)by Styxhexenhammer666The 1790 version of the Universal Fortune Teller is indeed far stranger than the one I've already released which post-dates it by seventy years. One look at the content and you know you're not exactly reading something from modernity.
The work is substantially more dense than I originally predicted; the astrological content alone stretches well past 40 pages, and that's really only half the work....
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...
The Universal Fortune Teller: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
The Universal Fortune Teller of Fortey's fame is a work vaguely similar to Napoleon's Oraculum- containing some of the same material (in not quite the same form) a full 24 years before the Oraculum was crafted, adding several new elements to the work and removing several others.
This specific work revolves mainly around the reading of tea leaves, palmistry, and a section on charms...
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,...
Napoleon's Oraculum - Coming Soon! (Plus General Announcement)by Styxhexenhammer666It's a happy day for those interested in fortune telling, zodiacs, astrology, and general mysticism. One of the best works ever to be crafted that deals with these things (with a surprisingly massive number of types of fortune telling included within its pages) is now virtually done- I have completed my edition of the famous Oraculum of Napoleon; also called the Dream Book, or Book of Fate. This...
