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...
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,...
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,...
Initiation Human and Solar: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is one of the foremost works of all Theosophy- from the well known Alice Bailey, an initiatory work which describes the various levels of spiritual refinement which are required on the path to Theosophical mastery. It should be noted that some of the obtuse terminology is explained at the end of the text in a decently sized glossary.
I highly recommend this work for those who...
Devil Worship in France: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is a more or less full length work and one of incredible value. Technically just a refutation of Leo Taxil (who recanted, proving Waite correct, only a year later!) it provides a broad overview of various alchemical and demonological content, mentions and fleshes out a dozen or so major actual occult figures, speaks of the freemasons, and describes then-modern Satanism as it...
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...
Dreams (What Are They): Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This short work, by the well-known theosophist Charles Leadbeater, is interesting mostly for its attempt to divide dreams into three pieces- the physical, etheric, and astral. As a work of pure theosophy, it does not delve into dream interpretation and similar things (although it does mention dream symbolism briefly) and mostly ruminates on some examples of dreams predicting the...
Occultism (Two Lectures): Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This work comes strictly from the rationalist camp of its era. Seeking primarily to discredit phrenology, dowsing, seances, and spiritualistic beliefs in general, Clodd managed to perform two tasks; first, to give a good cautionary warning to occultists, and second to categorize some interesting phenomena (including the legendary appearance of angels on WWI battlefields, aiding...
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...
Practical Occultism: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is an excellent work delivered in the form of multiple lectures rather than as a single stand-alone book. It is at once an early example of pro-spiritualist literature and a brutal attack on then-mainstream religious sentiment regarding seances, ghosts, and other similar topics. Refuting the concept of Heaven and Hell in favor of spiritualist explanations, this book is one of...
