Abaddon and Manahaim: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This book is quite interesting, even though I disagree (obviously) with much of the religious content herein- several sections are dedicated to the topic of the Devil (from a protestant perspective) and demons, and the bit about mortality and Hellfire is, of course, interesting as well.
The author, Joseph Berg, was a preacher, so some of the statements he makes are emotionally...
Diabology: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
Diabology is a rather extensive work of demonology, although that is not the only subject. Indeed, it concerns itself with everything dark within the Christian spiritual framework and, naturally, thus the contrasting opposites of those same things and ideas; for the demon there is an angel, for Satan a God, and so forth. Altogether the work is quite dense as well, and it is much...
Spiritualism and Necromancy: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is a rather nice work that primarily relates to demons and demonology, from the particular perspective of the fire and brimstone Methodist path that, in the 19th century, was at war with spiritualism. In the foreword, I had to make it clear to the reader that as an occultist I reject some of the anti-spiritualist materials here, although the first sections primarily deal with...
Demonism Verified and Analyzed: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This work is an excellent look at some of the christian conceptions of demonology from its era, in the roaring twenties. Based on field work in China and India, mostly by the author but referencing other missionaries as well, it purports to prove that demons exist, that evil is the agency of Satan, and that mesmerism and psychology play a role in possession.
It contains several...
The Biography of Satan: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This work comes courtesy of the spiritualist movement of the mid and late 19th century. It is at once an academic work, a work of general demonology and Satan-lore, and a social tract aimed at the fire and brimstone preaching of its era. The elaborate synthesis of its sources and its authors' opinions make it an important work within the historical cycle of late pre-modern...
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...
Is the Devil a Myth: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This work is a combination of demonology and devil lore with then-modern political and social discourse. Dwelling on the titles of, powers of, and form of the Devil, Wimberley's work also touches on temperance, the evils of illusionists and mesmerists, and the spiritualist movement.
It isn't quite as dense and difficult to comprehend as some similar works of the era on this and...
General Update Time!by Styxhexenhammer666Despite not posting an update in a while be it known that I have been hard at work; I am very pleased to first announce that the process of re-submitting all the files for ebook releases is now done- all of the titles available as digital downloads on Amazon (90% of them roughly) should be in proper format. If you do find any stragglers left behind and still messed up please leave a comment on...
Magic And Witchcraft: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This fine work is the culmination of a great deal of study by John Taylor in the middle of the 19th century. As with many works from the period, it both lambastes prior christian populations for their superstition while exonerating them partly on the basis that their interpretation of christian dogma was, first, misled by the authorities of their age and, second, that this was...
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...
Demons and Tongues: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This booklet details the opinions of the Pillar of Fire order founded by Alma White at the dawn of the 20th century, regarding the then-growing Pentecostal movement and its belief in baptism by tongues. It additionally delves fairly deep into eugenics-era demonology and the nature of both demons and the Devil, and their constant quest to destroy the christian body in what White...
The Devil, His Origin, Greatness, and Decadence: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This manuscript is a fine example of a mid 19th century spiritual historic work. Seeking to explain the origin and general history of Satan up through that point in history, it speaks of Ahriman, the disembodied and physical Satans of time, the Jewish and Christian origins of the same general principles, and the latter day, then-modern rationalist explanation of the devil as...
