Fifteen Lectures on Medical Botany: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
The 1830s represent an interesting period in medical history in which the old mercury and leeches of the system of Galen were replaced by botanical and "simples"-based medical practice until the era of fully "rational" chemical and biological science began a half century later. The essential premise here is that former medical practice was dangerous (objectively true) and...
The Lost Keys of Freemasonry: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is the second piece of literature ever crafted by Manly P Hall. It is a very good guide to the basic premise of Freemasonry- the symbolic tale of Hiram Abiff forms the basic symbolic core of its tenets, along with some other themes explored herein. It is notable that Hall was not a Mason at the time of writing this work but was apparently applauded by the order anyways,...
The Initiates of the Flame: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
Manly P Hall is a fairly famous name in mysticism and was a prolific author, whose works were hashed around in various compilations and in stand-alone booklet form for a half century. This is his very first literary entry, penned when he was barely an adult, back during the roaring twenties.
It is essentially a broad work of philosophy and initiation and forms the backbone of his...
A Call for Help on Amazonby Styxhexenhammer666Whether because they have shifted (hopefully temporarily) their algorithms on site related to search, or because of some sort of direct suppression of my content in the same, my paperback sales on Amazon collapsed on the 10th of January, with an over 50% reduction in total output. Digital sales have not seemingly been affected. This indicates a high chance of the former; Amazon has altered its...
Esoteric Buddhism: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
AP Sinnett is the author of this fascinating book- his probably most well known, and one of the better written.
The number of topics covered within it are vast but there are two especially which concern the modern occultist perhaps most of all; the treatment of nirvana, devachan, and the general concept of the afterlife and reincarnation cycle first and foremost, and second to it,...
The Final Literary Update of the 2010s!by Styxhexenhammer666Alright literary world.
The year (and the 2010s) is almost over, and because of travel I have not gotten any new editing done in a few days; that means it's time to wrap up the year and make a few happy announcements!
First: Paperback sales have continued to generally grow over the last couple of years and this gives a considerable incentive to continue editing pretty much on a permanent basis. Now...
Final Update of the 2010s!by Styxhexenhammer666For the tldr crowd just watch the video!
It's almost the end of the year and of the 2010s ("good riddance" many will say!) so it's time for the last general update!
When I first began my foray into literature it was the middle of the 2010s and I had little idea what I was doing. Spurred on partly by necessity and partly by mere interest, I decided to take advantage of publishing on-demand services...
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,...
The Heart of Things: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
The second volume of lore in Edward Farnsworths' three part series, "Heart of Things" is much like "The Deeper Mysteries." the content is a bit less variable and more focused on astrological, zodiacal, categorical materials. It speaks at some length on dreams, spirits, the meaning of life, the dimensions, and many other subjects, usually in three or four pages apiece.
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...
The Ancient Mysteries and Modern Masonry: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This work is actually a transcription of a series of lectures given by Charles Vail- notable as a minister, mason, and political figure in his era. The subjects of the lectures are all about Freemasons, but range from its symbols and their meanings, to its rites (especially of initiation) and the underlying history of the Masons in their modern incarnation dating to the 18th...
The Evil Eye, Thanatology, and Other Essays: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
And now comes the first release in quite a while- a compilation of essays and speeches given by the author on medical subjects, mostly of an occult character- it's a fascinating book, with highly variable subtopics.
Perhaps the most interesting material here is on the history of the concept of the evil eye and counter-measures, but the history of the Knights Hospitaller and the...
