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...
A Book of Giants: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
Mythology and legend is a great component of the occult and the study of the same arguably one of the more enjoyable. What could be better than tales of Norse giants? Tales of Norse giants alongside tales of giants in Homers' works and in the middle ages, twain with a short but sweet section at the end of this work on "real" giants (some lore of which is perfectly accurate!)
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...
Celtic Mythology: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This particular book is a nice collection of linguistic lore and superstition related to the development of the Celtic people. Some of the content here is technically eugenic, proposing three separate ethnic groups with regards to the Celtic people.
It speaks of the divisions of Celtic culture (the bards, vates, and druids) and many other topics, and gives not just a broad...
Superstition About Animals: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is a great book of folklore; great instead of merely good, because it is actually entertaining, because much like my prior edited release on flower lore, it adds poetry and prose of various kinds (especially Keats, Shakespeare, and the biblical Psalms) in its various meanderings. About half the work deals with birds, which are highly present symbols within spirituality.
Scottish Folklore: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This work is not, strictly speaking, occult in the main sense- however, folklore is often spiritual to an extent, and with this work, that is definitively the case. Written at the end of the 19th century, it contains anecdotal stories by the author- tales he heard or things he witnessed as a youth in Scotland. Some of the tales are hilarious, some bizarre, and a few touch on...
Flower Lore: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is one of the most comprehensive works I've edited- a near 200 page compilation of lore all related to the botanical, paired frequently with poetry and Shakespearean verse, with more than a few references to civics (at the time the idea of a national flower was apparently hotly debated- it does mention my own state, Vermont, choosing the red clover as state flower- which it...
General Update: Current and Planned Works for Marchby Styxhexenhammer666Alright literary world, it's time for a brief update as spring (very slowly) decides to encroach; this gives me a lot of ambition while suffering from cabin fever, although once it actually gets nice outside I do a "little" less editing and writing for a while mid spring.
I am currently about 90% of the way through "Aryan Sun Myths" and so that work will be ready and available within a week or so-...
Valhalla, Myths of Norseland: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
I was looking around trying to find more works which involved paganism, especially Norse or Egyptian, to release over time, and some time ago I found about a dozen good works; this is one of them, just in time for that happy point in the year where the Fimbulwinter begins to decline away!
More a compilation than an authored work, its authors main contribution is its rather helpful...

Short Update Re: Ebooksby Styxhexenhammer666It's time for a short announcement for several important pieces of information for my readers here.
1. I have transferred the files and information for the last 20ish works I have released to kdp. Soon they will be available on kindle as ebooks. I tend to drag my heels for months at a time on such things (because I myself do not like ebooks and tablets, I want physical copies of literary works) and...
