The Mythology of Ancient Britain and Ireland: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This short work is yet another creation series entry; essentially in part supplementary to Anwyl's "Celtic Religion" in the same set. It is partially linguistic in nature and traces the development of post-christian British Isle spiritual systems and folklore (especially in the Arthurian sense) from prior religious figures; namely, deities of various sorts.
The origin stories of...
The Mythologies of Ancient Mexico and Peru: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is yet another edition from the creation series of the early 20th century; and indeed it is one of the best pieces within the set.
The entire first chapter meanders through the concept of pre-columbian Nordic or Irish influence on Northeastern tribes in the Americas and then differentiates that with the Mexican )Aztec) and Peruvian (Inca) cultures. The two are then expounded...
Swedenborg and the Sapienta Angelica: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This intermediate-length text is essentially three short works in one; the first third of the work is an autobiography of Emanuel Swedenborg and the second a brief overview of some of his more important works. In both, there are bits of his overarching philosophy listed and described briefly. The final section is a fairly lengthy bibliographic appendix listing both his works and...
Christ Or Buddha? Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This short work of Rosicrucian lore essentially serves one purpose; to differentiate Eastern and Western occultism, favoring the latter and refuting the concept that- at least in the Rosicrucian path- Buddha or Eastern esoteric concepts held supremacy over the conception of Jesus Christ.
When we analyze this work it is important to note that it was a fairly common criticism of...
General Update: The Final Stretch And Amazon's Slow Processing Timesby Styxhexenhammer666Alright everyone time for a new general update!
Editing by and large has been going about as normal, but you might have noticed a slowdown in actual work output... why?
Well the answer is simple; Amazon used to process files and give them their check for copyright etc within 72 hours of file uploads; at a maximum this meant a week to finalize everything because even if it got a copyright...
The Mystical Interpretation of Christmas: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This short work is another by Heindel, a decidedly Rosicrucian, and sometimes quite odd, title, comprised of five short lectures which range from a basic refutation of outright atheistic skepticism, to an embracing of the concept of earth spirits (salamanders, fairies, etc) a la Hermetic lore.
It is quite good; the symbolism of Christmas is covered in brief but comprehensive...
Mysteries of the Great Operas: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is one of the best works I have edited thus far; and since I am rapidly approaching 280 edited works in total, that's not insubstantial.
Max Heindel, a Rosicrucian when he wrote this work, needs little introduction since his name is up in the ranks of Crowley or Steiner in terms of notoriety; suffice to say this little volume provides interesting- it not always invariably...
The Religion of Ancient Greece: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This little book is one of dozens of Creation Series titles made available in the early 20th century. I have edited about half a dozen prior; this one is definitely more academic even than the prior few, and delves at several points into the difference between Greek religion as conceived of in the then-recent past, and the then-modern period according to archaeology. Zeus here is...
The Religion of Babylonia and Assyria: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This work is one of the most dense entries in the esteemed "Creation Series"- a series which contains as well several other works I have edited. It is mostly linguistic, but is also a work of religious history, and dwells mostly on some of the more important spiritual figures within the Babylonian/Sumerian pantheon. We must of course recognize that it was written long before...
The Time Has Come: Most Titles to Become Available via Kindleby Styxhexenhammer666As people may have seen, shipping times on Amazon have become completely insane; I bought a book a couple days ago, and the expected shipping time is in late April.
The current pandemic has turned people into fearful slaves, and unfortunately those of us still awake have no choice but to play along, in order to make ends meet.
As such, I have begun exporting my paperback files to digital. There is,...
Magic and Fetishism: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is a very dense little work which is almost entirely comprised of notes and segments on African and Asian tribal groups and their use of physical objects in a ritual context, often as little charms or "fetishes" as they were termed then. Importantly, the modern (and sexual) use of this term does not here apply.
Some of the stories are outright humorous; most of them are fairly...
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;...
