Strange Phenomena of New England: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This book is an excellent primer on the Salem Witch Trials- it contains mostly a slew of primary source documents; letters from the era, trial proceedings, and- at the end- the culminating document which ended the era for good, namely the recanting and apology of the jury involved for having condemned innocent people to death. While I have strong opinions on the subject of why the...
A Tryal of Witches: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This little work is quite nice, and comprises two sections; a longer one that is a verbatim reprint of a 17th century witch trial, and second to that a short appendix with a few notations about the subject at large. I have decided to leave it in its original 19th century reprint form, with regards to the proceedings, which of course are in 17th century old English, archaic terms...
Ghostly Phenomena: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is a rather strange little book and contains a compilation of tales about ghosts and encounters of the same, starting with the authors' own recollections, then tales related to him, and finally some of his opinions on various spiritual phenomena. The author, Elliott O'Donnell, has been generally considered a fraud because of his unwillingness to produce these third parties...
General Update: Lesser Keys, Phallism Works, etc!by Styxhexenhammer666Alright book world.
Our first and most major update right now involves the long-awaited Lesser Keys edition I have been planning. The Ars Goetia and Ars Paulina are already finished and have been previously released in stand-alone form (every one of the LK books is itself a separate document; the LK itself is a compilation of texts following a tradition, sort of like the apocrypha usually being...
Mesmerism, Spiritualism, Witchcraft, and Miracles: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This work is something I do not necessarily agree with in an occult sense but, for historical reasons and because of its (extremely) interesting take on the Salem Witch Trials, it is certainly worthy of inclusion in the ever-expanding library of releases here.
Written by Putnam in the middle of the 1800s, it is notable in that it makes the claim (though not directly) of a new...
Secrets of Black Arts!: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This interesting little volume is roughly similar in some ways to the Book of Forbidden Knowledge (which became and has remained one of my top selling titles.) It is a mix of different lore, delivered from a skeptical-but-not-atheistic position on subjects ranging from the divining rod (dowsing), to omens and apparitions, and the Salem Witch Trials- this last is covered in some...
General Update Time: Upcoming Releasesby Styxhexenhammer666Alright literary world!
I am approaching the end of two new short political works; "Against Communism" and "Against Corporate Media." As promised I have two other political titles I plan to release as well this month. I have decided to break apart my efforts into segments over the coming months also. April will be herbal month; two and possibly three new works will be edited then. In May, it's time...
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 Witches' Pharmacopoeia: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
And now at last we come to a great milestone in the catalog of works I have authored or edited; the 100th occult release (counting a half a dozen of my own works) and the first herbal/homeopathic work here, technically speaking; the very good "Witches Pharmacopoeia" by Robert Fletcher, who combines the Shakespearean with the burning times herbal and cauldron-stirring lore
Cotton Mather and Witchcraft: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This short tract is one of the more interesting looks at the Salem Witch Trials that I have seen. Not only does it openly defend Cotton Mather (usually saddled with a significant proportion of the blame for the witch hysteria there) but does so with enough persuasion that over a century after its authorship I found myself at least partly convinced that perhaps Mather really wasn't...
General Literary Update: Forthcoming Worksby Styxhexenhammer666I will be attending a funeral this afternoon. As such my load of work for the day is essentially just an update for "The Piasa" later.
Over the last week I have obtained a large number of new works to work on. I never stick to a timeline and tend to bounce from work to work on a daily basis, to keep the material fresh and interesting and so I don't get bogged down or distracted. Here is a little...
Demonomania and Witchcraft: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This short but extremely interesting work is a historical view to the rationalism of the mid 1800s. Written by Joseph Workman (MD) an apparent specialist in insanity, it refutes and also draws from the Burning Times and the Salem Witch Trials. Filled with anecdotes, it is historically valuable both for its coverage of earlier events as well as its historical context in the early...
