Dionysos and Immortality: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This little booklet is a good overview of a few centuries of interesting Greek history, specifically looking at the change in its religious system as the region went from a relative backwater to a technologically advanced major trading center and military power. The rise of individualism, as a replacement for the old aristocratic system, and its considerable impact on...
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...
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 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 Ancient Egypt: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is yet another of the works from the creation series of the early 20th century. It is as rigorous and dense as the prior edition on Assyria and Babylon; much of the content is a very detailed list of major deities, their basic histories, and a bit of their evolution over time (Egyptian religion is far from homogeneous- it continued to develop longer than any other system...
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...
A Compendium of Heathen Mythology: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is a rather short work, one written in the middle of the 19th century. Marketed to young, middle and upper middle class females, it is a sort of pagan primer- one which outcompeted contemporary works by amusingly including Hindu and Egyptian material alongside the then-standard Greek and Roman.
This amusing aside does not detract from the content- it is as good as any similar...
Poems of Paganism: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This little work is an interesting compilation of poetry (partially related to love, partially to nature) with a pagan twist- sometimes literally- included. The author crafted a number of poetic works in his era, and wrote this one under the pseudonym "paganus."
It isn't strictly pagan in the sense of epic poems about Valhalla, etc, much of it refers to cupid-style love and...
The Religion of Ancient Scandinavia: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This little booklet is a rather obscure and interesting guide to a few basic concepts within Norse paganism from the semi-academic perspective. With a section on Thor and Odin and another on the rest of the major figures of Northern paganism, it includes a few strange asides about less well known subjects such as the "doom ring" (for human sacrifice) and the "Insult Post" which...
General Update: Phase Three of Editing, Re-editing Project, etc!by Styxhexenhammer666Alright literary world; time for an important update!
With "Mystic Will" released two days ago as of the time of this post, it is now time for a general cursory overview of what happens next; all of my works through the last were under spiritual contract of sorts and I not only met but exceeded my goal time-wise. This sets the stage for continual literary success; not a lot of people have catalogs...
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...
Pagan Mythology: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This book is one of those happy titles that I enjoyed reading for its content in the informational and entertaining sense as much as for editing; it contains two pieces of content- pagan lore (Greek and Roman) first, and then a late 19th century analysis of the same in the sense of its connection to social and political topics- for example ideas such as tyranny, liberation, the...
