Epicurus: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This intermediate work is presumably the final creation series title I will edit; it is a combination of basic Epicurean philosophy, basic life story of the philosopher himself, and criticisms by him of his critics as well as theirs of him. It's well written, and at times humorous, Epicurus calling one of his rivals a "mollusk" comes to mind as being particularly funny against the...
The Religion of Ancient Palestine: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
Here is another creation series work, one which I finished a week ago but which got caught up in Amazons' massively slow processing system. It is partly linguistic but unlike the last two titles is mostly about religious history and how the various spiritual systems that would contribute to Judeochristianity co-evolved and borrowed imagery and words and ideas from one another. It...
The Idea of God in Early Religions: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This work is one of the main texts crafted by FB Jevons; a relatively well known academic in his day, who managed to create, here, a work which would remain relevant after a century- it is a combination of strict religious history with linguistic anthropology; a fascinating field that most would benefit from studying at least in a basic sense.
Religious evolution is explored here;...
American Medicinal Leaves and Herbs: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This interesting little work is another of the botanically important circulations produced at the dawn of the 20th century by the US Department of Agriculture- it is fully illustrated by Rita Metzner, whose Instagram you can see here. It lists over 30 species of note that grow within the region of the continental United States- mostly native plant life, with a few European garden...
Special teachings From the Arcane Science: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
"Special Teachings" is the first of three works in Farnsworths' series of occult compilations. The topics within are highly variable and presented from a Theosophical perspective. It notably includes content regarding Karma, Kali Yuga, the concept of time from an occult perspective, and various treatments on science and supernatural topics. It is, of the three works in the series,...
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...
