General Update Time: More Works Coming Soon!

It has been several months since I wrote anything about my literature; but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy!

Over the last few months I have obtained almost a hundred new literary works to edit- some short, some long, all occult or occult-adjacent. Four of these works are done with the illustrations ready to go. A fifth work is done pending completed illustrations. A sixth work is about half done. I decided to just list the forthcoming titles here. My plan is to complete four additional works by years’ end and get all six of the current titles out before Halloween (which of course is important!)

Ancient Mystic Oriental Masonry (Clymer)
Hellenism and Christianity (Bevan)
Hindu Magic (Carrington)
Mysticism in English Literature (Spurgeon)
Mysticism in Heathendom and Christianity (Lehmann)
Satans Devices and the Believers Victory (Parsons)

I have a few other works in varying degrees of completion which are partly edited and, as I said, many more which will need to be formatted first. I anticipate releasing perhaps fifteen to twenty works in 2023 as well.

Onward!

Erroneous Occultism: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This little work was designed as a cautionary and basic introductory manuscript to warn would-be occultists about some of the pitfalls of researching magic, religion, mysticism, and allied topics. It covers charlatans (at large), fortune telling, spiritism, astrology, superstitions good and bad, folklore and its importance, and many similar subtopics. I like to imagine it is more rigorous than many comparable works, which tend towards either the strictly incredulous or the strictly skeptical.

General Update: More Authored Works, Compilations, etc!

Alright everyone, I figure it’s about time for a literary update for all of you assorted occultists, history buffs, and general clankers.

As I pointed out prior, I am taking a bit of a break from editing literature related to religion, spirituality, folklore, and allied themes. After having released 400 such works (all of which are linked here on this blog) I wanted to get to a few other long-planned projects.

First, I am now writing two short works; a text on Erroneous Occultism, which strives to warn against some of the potential abuses of those seeking truth, by charlatans and spiritual distractions. Second, a work elucidating the premise that the occult not only cannot support censorship and suppression of ideas and beliefs, but ought to be actively engaged in rebuffing such attempts. I deliver my comments on the subject from pragmatic, ethical, and spiritual backdrops.

After these works are released I do plan as well to create a couple more compilational works. I have not yet decided the exact topics to compile. This will take a bit of time since it requires a final proofreading of the work in addition to reformatting the entirety.

After that, I plan on continuing to edit more works, but I am very likely to simultaneously try and develop hardcover editions of all of my compiled works (once these final two or three are done) as well as re-editing a few of my older works and potentially expanding them and preparing them for hardcover release as well.

Clank on!

Ridicule For All! Now Available

CLICK TO PURCHASE

I wrote this little satire work over the course of many months in odd times between editing more academic materials and doing my normal analysis of politics and social issues. While I enjoy those subjects, sometimes I just want to have a bit of humor at someones’ expense.

This booklet ridicules many groups; conservatives, liberals, communists, vegans, MGTOW, the legacy media, and of course libertarians and Youtubers (both groups which I am part of! A bit of self deprecation is always a good decision.)

In these dark times it is always good to have a chuckle. If you enjoyed 101 Communist Jokes I guarantee this will be right up your alley.

The Mystery and Romance of Alchemy and Pharmacy: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This excellent book I cannot recommend highly enough. It is an academic (but not very dryly academic) compilation of lore related to medical history, alchemy, and the apothecary, spanning centuries, with an especial focus on the period of roughly the mid 16th to early 19th centuries.

It contains entire recorded lists of apothecarial goods available in then-contemporary shops, analysis of the usage of herbal and alchemical lore in fictional works by Shakespeare, Dickens, Spenser, Dumas, and others, and a great number of illustrations, which have been reworked and expanded upon by Raven Feather Illustrations. From amulets and toad-stones to love philtres and mummy powder, this work contains a vast trove of knowledge on the subject.

A History of Theosophy: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This book is an excellent primer on Theosophy; its origins, some of its major figures, and (most importantly) texts by Theosophists and about Theosophy. Colville ties the society itself in with similar movements such as the Rosicrucians and the work of people like Swedenborg. The secondary references are of great use for those interested in a single work from which they can find additional material and study the concept in more depth. The work has been fully illustrated by Raven Feather Illustrations.

146 pages.

The Immediate Future: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This interesting work is a series of lectures by Annie Besant, then leader of the Theosophical movement. The subjects of the transcribed lectures vary- mostly they relate to sociopolitics as further related to Theosophy- a particular Besant specialty. They speak of the rise of India and the enlightenment of civilization, a bit about Atlantis and root races, and the concepts of mindfulness and karma.

126 pages.

The Mysteries, Pagan and Christian: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

Cheetham’s “Mysteries Pagan and Christian” is one of the most insightful volumes on mystic tradition and the mystery schools which I have encountered. It contains a very large section of notes explaining some of the texts’ content, and dwells mainly on the concordance between the ancient Greek and Roman mystery tradition (the Orphic, Eleusinian, Bacchic, and other mysteries) and their progress through the early Christian period, and absorption into various religious rites. It derives heavily from ancient sources.

Initiation and its Results: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This interesting work by Rudolf Steiner is basically a follow-up to “The Way of Initiation”, talking about the chakras, initiation process, the awakening of the serpent fire (Kundalini) and other such topics. It is more heavily Eastern-influenced than many of his latter texts and oratory.

86 pages.

The Way of Initiation: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This fine work is one of the most significant early works of the well-known Rudolf Steiner; one of the leaders of Theosophical thought before schisming from Annie Besants’ faction and forming Anthroposophy. This text lists the steps of initiation in general and includes a fairly good autobiographical entry on Steiner himself, written by Edouard Schure. This inclusion is why I chose to edit from the second, rather than first, edition.
