Shinto: The Ancient Religion of Japan: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This short work is a compilation of religious lore mainly of a historical background. The primordial Japanese religion of Shinto is quite complex, but the linguistic content here is secondary and much of it is a description of the different types and usages of deities and rituals. It is worth noting that Astons' study coincides with the rise of Japan as a power in the world and...
Swedenborg and the Sapienta Angelica: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This intermediate-length text is essentially three short works in one; the first third of the work is an autobiography of Emanuel Swedenborg and the second a brief overview of some of his more important works. In both, there are bits of his overarching philosophy listed and described briefly. The final section is a fairly lengthy bibliographic appendix listing both his works and...
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...
Occult Japan: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
The topic of Shinto is one I haven't really studied much of before; I waited for years to finally attain a proper copy of this book that could reasonably be edited from and was finally able to do so fairly recently. Its author needs little introduction since he wasn't just an avid studier of Asian religion but also an astronomer of considerable fame who proclaimed Mars to be...
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...
The Theosophy of Christ: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This short work represents a contemporary look at Theosophy from a perspective different from that of the Oriental tradition. While Theosophy at large brought East to West, this and similar works spoke more of Jesus and attempted to re-assert the supremacy of Christendom over spiritism and similar phenomena.
Largely, it encourages prayer for healing, claiming that the dispensation...
The Laws of the Higher Life: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This short work is one of the many writings of the rather famous (or infamous!) Annie Besant; a Theosophist and one of the main figures thereof. This work lays out three particular laws (or sets of laws) governing a higher existence, ascendant and enlightened. They are, respectively, consciousness, duty, and sacrifice, and form a deeply Hinduism-tainted variant of Theosophy in...
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 Religion: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This little work is a fairly brief primer on the basics of Celtic spiritual systems. It goes into the division of the Druid priesthood in the pagan era, among other things, and correlates the development of the religious beliefs there with the advancement of contemporary culture. Altogether it's a very good work, although a few of the tenets it espouses have been largely forsaken...
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...
Magic of the Horse Shoe: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is one of the greater compilations of folklore I have encountered; written by Robert Means Lawrence, it compiles an extremely long and detailed bit of information related to the symbolism and use of horse shoes in the context of good luck and superstition, along with elaborate side topics like the similar superstitious use of salt, or of animals.
Not content to study one...
Counterblast to Tobacco: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This exceedingly short tract is of note for two reasons; its author and its early date for the content. Crafted at the dawn of the 17th century, it is the first anti-smoking tract, and was penned by none other than King James I himself, of "Daemonologie" fame.
Dwelling on both the humors and then-modern medical lore as well as the spiritual implications of smoking (it being...
