My Next Literary Projectsby Styxhexenhammer666Now that Createspace has stymied my attempt at revamping and improving my older releases by temporarily suspending my account and shutting me out for a week based on their own systems' error regarding copyright status, it's time to move on to a pair of new literary projects. I've already emailed them regarding my suppressed titles but I haven't gotten a response yet so it's even odds as to whether...
150th Edition Literary Updateby Styxhexenhammer666Over the course of the next 48 or so hours I'll be completing another section of the Lesser Keys of Solomon (The Ars Paulina) and releasing it. This will be the 150th edition of occult literature I have released, between edited and self-written works, and so it's a fairly significant milestone.
It also means it's time for disclosing my subsequent plans!
For some time now I've let my files (pdfs, odt...
February 2018 Editing Update!by Styxhexenhammer666I am pleased to announce that at this time, the illustrations for my upcoming edition of the Ars Goetia have been completed by the artist (Rita Metzner, who has previously illustrated a couple of herbals for me.) The work is good and so far the formatting is going smoothly; the final edition should be a fairly standard length, perhaps a bit longer than some editions because I choose not to...
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...
The Process Begins on Improving the KDP Titlesby Styxhexenhammer666This morning I finished "Magic and Witchcraft" and it is processing, but I figured I'd do a bit more and moved all five herbal titles to KDP (for ebook sales)- as always I don't really care much about ebooks because I prefer physical copies, but people keep asking me for digital versions of my releases so I figure I might as well have a full ebook catalog too.
Which brings me to the happy news of...
A Treatise on Magical Incantations: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This work is another Edmund Goldsmid release, supposedly translated from a work by "Christianus Pazig." That there appears to be no information on this figure indicates that either Goldsmid himself wrote this work or he translated it from a now-extinct piece of (possibly hand written) literature he collected at some point. It is part of the "Bibliotheca Curiosa" that also contains...
Phallic Objects: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This work is a bit more like "Archaic Rock Inscriptions" than it is the progenitor work "Phallism" albeit it is from the same series. Like other works within the phallism series (again, as always, possibly but not definitively a work by Jennings Hargrave) it relies predominantly on secondary sources, in this case mostly archaeological.
It's a good work; mostly it covers the...
Sickness in Hell Update, And More!by Styxhexenhammer666Courtesy of the "Secret Book of the Black Arts" containing numerous references to other occult works, often philosophical and often historical, I have hit pay dirt once again and obtained five new works I was not formerly aware of, including King James' own Demonological manuscript; I will be releasing these over time along with all the work I already had going on.
Progress is swift on SIH so far;...
Several Work Updatesby Styxhexenhammer666Update 1: Hohman's Pow-Wows is rapidly approaching completion. The work is going much faster than the Fortune Teller did because of the English being so much closer to that used in modern speech. I have not yet decided whether to include or omit the publishers' added section (which dates to the original work but is not entirely of German/Pennsylvanian origin.)
Update 2: I am going to expedite the...
Enchiridion of Pope Leo III: The Grimoire of Pope Leoby Styxhexenhammer666
Somehow I managed to complete the Enchiridion of Pope Leo III without actually posting here about it being done; I have no idea how I overlooked it- perhaps I was drinking a bit of wine when I finished uploading it. I could have sworn I posted an entry but was wrong.
The work itself is quite good; I refined the original illustrations here because they were nowhere present in a quality...
General Update: April Break/ Upcoming Worksby Styxhexenhammer666Thanks to my new illustrating system it's somewhat easier to create substantially better-quality illustrations for my works and as such it should be fairly simple to re-edit a couple of the older works I've released and bring the illustrations there up to my new standards. I took a look at the Grimorium Verum and determined that its own images were actually fine, which surprised me because for...
Liber Salomonis: Sepher Raziel, Now Availableby Styxhexenhammer666
At long last one of the most important grimoires is here; the infamous Liber Salomonis, the so-called Sepher Raziel (which doesn't have much in common with the actual Kabbalistic text of the same title.)
As aforementioned on this blog it is arranged into seven treatises, all subjected to astronomical and Lesser Keys-style angelic names and powers. Like many grimoires, it arranges...
