General Update Time!by Styxhexenhammer666Alright everyone!
I have gotten back into the swing of editing. I am currently working on Waites' "Devil Worship in France" which is a great book- after that I have several dozen more works planned. Happily, I have someone looking at illustrating a pair of herbals and a work by Manly Hall.
That will round of the work through July, probably. I need to go on a hunt for new literary material due to a...
Editing Begins Anew!by Styxhexenhammer666Alright everyone!
I have finally begun editing new works; I decided to start with a basically rationalist work entitled "A Treatise on Magic" and will proceed through dozens of works through the year. I'd like to have released the 250th edition before New Years' day.
Some of these works will be illustrated- a couple of herbals, a work by Hall, etc. I am proceeding in whatever order I feel...
Strange Phenomena of New England: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This book is an excellent primer on the Salem Witch Trials- it contains mostly a slew of primary source documents; letters from the era, trial proceedings, and- at the end- the culminating document which ended the era for good, namely the recanting and apology of the jury involved for having condemned innocent people to death. While I have strong opinions on the subject of why the...
Celtic Religion: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This little work is a fairly brief primer on the basics of Celtic spiritual systems. It goes into the division of the Druid priesthood in the pagan era, among other things, and correlates the development of the religious beliefs there with the advancement of contemporary culture. Altogether it's a very good work, although a few of the tenets it espouses have been largely forsaken...
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...
The Witch Persecutions: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This small work is a compilation text and combines multiple sections each containing a primary source on various instances of persecution related to the witch trials. Burrs' work does not contain all of these pieces of lore verbatim- several of the longer sections are truncated and one omits passages from a lengthier manuscript. It is nonetheless of great use to those studying the...
Animism, the Seed of Religion: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is of interest potentially to two groups of people; the occultist will here find some interesting folk tales and spiritual rites from cultures then being actively studied at the height of the colonial era, and the history buff will find in these pages an interesting but sometimes outdated colonial perspective on non-European cultures. It focuses mostly on African lore but...
Psychedelic Spirituality Second Edition: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This work was one of my favorites to write- deviating partly from the academic and geared more towards my own anecdotes of psychedelic usage, I crafted this book not so much as an educational guide as a compilation of shorter sections which deviate in purpose and look to the historical, the spiritual, and sometimes the legal.
It is substantially similar to the first edition...
General Update: Five Works Coming Down Fastby Styxhexenhammer666In happy news, I spent the last couple of days (due to excessive heat) not wanting to do any harder literary work, and as such I preferred to complete a short alchemical text (which will be available later this very same day) and to format three works in addition to the two edited herbals awaiting their artwork- when the artwork will be done I am not 100% sure, but I've seen the progress and it's...
Against Communism: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This short work is a pogrom against communism, as well as its various offshoots and "allies"- anarchism, socialism, and so forth. I could have written a 900 page manifesto against the ideology itself with ease but figured that wasn't prudent.
Communism is best attacked not with vague moral arguments but with an eye to evolution and biology; paired with an observation of its brief...
A Blog Redesign and General Update!by Styxhexenhammer666At last it is time that my blog here has begun to grow out of its original format. I am actively planning the preliminary stages of acquiring a website to host my material (this blog will cross-link to it and the two operate in tandem using the benefits of both blogspot and my own website, which won't exist for some months to come.)
I have made a major decision in format for this blog; it doesn't...
Three Works of Demonology For 2016by Styxhexenhammer666Because King James' Demonology has risen up so quickly in sales I have decided to expedite several other works on the topic of demonology and try to get a couple of them released before the end of the year alongside the work I need to do before Halloween; namely Sickness in Hell, Cultus Arborum, and the Greater Key of Solomon.
The first work is entitled "Demoniality" and was written in the 17th...
