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;...
Poems of Paganism: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This little collection of poems is essentially about romance and love and extols the virtues of the pagan; some of this is archaicism- the language used is deliberately made to sound older than the late 19th century, in which everything pagan (in the sense of the Roman, Egyptian, Greek, and Norse, mostly) was considered commendable.
The collection itself is quite good; the poetry...
The Indigenous Drugs of India: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This intermediate-length medical work is one part anthropological text, one part recipe book, and one part good medical history. About 90% of the entries here are herbal; but it lists some minerals and chemical compounds and even a couple of insect species, all of which were apparently sold through the Indian subcontinent as medical materials in the 1860s.
The fascinating blend of...
Jacobs Rod: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is a text in two parts; first a translated late 17th century work by Baritel, then an "addendum" (really its own short work) by the translator, regarding mesmeric and dowsing experiments by his wife and him and various energetic lore related to finding mines or water using a hazel rod or the use of "mesmeric passes."
The second text is oddly more fun than the first in this...
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,...
