Pantheism; Its Story and Significance: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE


This short work is part of the well regarded religion series of its era and delves partly into the evolution of religious systems “towards” pantheism and partly into a refutation of the belief that certain figures from before Spinoza conform, at least literally, to the pantheistic doctrine. A bit about the life and beliefs of Spinoza himself complete this work, which is rigorously academic in tone.

This strange work was crafted by a man who, upon brief investigation, is one of the most enigmatic figures in the occult which I have encountered. A relatively high class lawyer of the 19th century, Hatch’ best known work wasn’t even written by him, and was made posthumously via automatic writing. This text contributes to the sense of oddity in the case of the author, since it claims to be hermetic but essentially smashes a dozen or so apparent occult ideologies together, openly professing that it is a symbolic work which must be understood in the non-literal sense, much like the Steganographia of Trithemius.

It is well written but highly theatrical in its language usage and flow, so those intrigued by plays and poetry will probably enjoy it more than those looking for a dry academic work.

The Four Great Religions: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This well made Theosophical work is, I think, my favorite by Besant thus far. It avoids some of the more strange material in that path associated with ethnic issues and focuses almost entirely on religious history- namely that associated with Hinduism, Zoroastrianism, Buddhism, and Christianity, proclaiming that those are akin to four epochs of spiritual development, with frequent allusions to their holy scriptures.

According to Besant there are similarities in these four spiritual systems that must be noted, in preparation for the arrival of a fifth age- the literal new age heralded by a new enlightened master.

Symbolic Mythology: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE


The author of this present work is notable for stream of consciousness style digests containing highly compressed information on spiritual subjects. This particular book is perhaps most useful for those interested in details about the symbolism of animals as applied to Judaism, early Christianity, and also, of course, Norse and Greek/Roman pagan systems. It contains as well a section on the use of rings as a symbol which seems to have spawned a full length title by the same author.

Cures; The Story of Cures That Failed, Now Available!


CLICK TO PURCHASE

This book is a compilation of medical history spanning several thousand years, from the practices of the ancient Greeks and Egyptians up through the then nearly modern period of the late 19th century. It speaks at length about theriac, calomel, Mesmer and mesmerism, blue light therapy, leechcraft, healing spells, and many other fascinating methods of medicine used in past times.

This book is occult in two manners; first its treatment of superstitious, sometimes spiritual medicinal folk practices, and secondly for its statements on the all encompassing placebo effect, which after all plays a significant role in religion and human spiritual systems, not just medical ones!

An Occult Reference: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This little work is the ultimate culmination of years and years of editing and studying occult works of literature. It is short, but crams hundreds of entries in for the purposes of serious students of the occult, as a springboard I was not privy to, in their studies on every major subgenre of the world of the paranormal, spiritual, and occult. Each entry lists the author (last name first) plus the title and year, so that the occultist, or anyone studying its subtopics, can easily look the same up on the internet for research purposes. I have avoided using my own editions, for while I prefer paperbacks, and I am always glad to provide properly formatted editions of the same to people, it is possible to obtain original scans for free- the limitations being they are often in poor condition and are not a tangible object you can place on a shelf.

I have included astrology, alchemy, demonology, folk medicine, religious history, and much more in this little volume, taking several months to ensure only the best and most relevant titles were included.

New Years General Update!

Alright literary world- it’s no longer 2020 (most of you are probably deeply thankful for that!) so it’s time for a general update laying out some of my literary plans for the new year.

The most important new update I have to give is that because I finished my five occult compilations ahead of schedule I am steaming ahead on my occult reference project; this book of books, of sorts, will list hundreds of significant occult works on a dozen different sub-topics. Each entry will include the author, title, date of manufacture, and a few sentences summarizing the content. The reader can use this as a springboard to find works, either copyright-free digital copies, or paperbacks. I have omitted my own editions from the text and will only add a brief section at the end for my five occult compilations.

I am not sure when to expect completing this work; I have a large list of sources for the volumes I am adding, and some sections will be considerably longer than others- I have only listed fifteen works within astrology, but I’ve already added twenty for herbal and folk medicine, and I am less than halfway through one of my two source lists.

When this is done I plan to return to editing singular works, and release another hundred edited works- the great struggle for preserving occult literature continues!

Here’s to the new year!

Black Magic and Spirits: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This work is the culmination of years of delving into the diabolical; a collection of some of the most black of black magic, often well beyond merely summoning spirits and commanding them. This is the last work of 2020, and a fitting end to such a bizarre year. The following works are included:

-The Ars Goetia; a list of 72 demons and how to summon them.
-The Grand Grimoire: an infamous work conjuring Lucifuge Rofocale and other spirits.
-The Clavicles of Solomon: Mostly gray magic summoning.
-The Black Pullet: A lengthy story twain with a series of talismans used for various purposes.
-The Grimoire of Pope Honorius: A white magic work summoning spirits.
-The Grimorium Verum: A decidedly diabolical work that includes a ritual using a human head.
-The Petit Albert: A part of the infamous French grimoire which includes the hand of glory among other things.

It contains material from the Book of Forbidden Knowledge, Black Pullet, Petit Albert, Greater Key of Solomon, Clavicula Salomonis, Secrets of Black Arts!, Oriental Interpretation of Dreams, and dozens of others.

Folk Medicine, A Collection: Now Available!


CLICK TO PURCHASE

This is yet another full length compilation of texts and content from texts which I have crafted- I have to say it is thus far my favorite of all the compilations, and deals with medical lore from multiple subgenres.

The first section contains, verbatim, the famous Regimen Salernitus Salernitanum, a medieval work on dietary and similar science, and then proceeds with sections on various folk cures, astrological and alchemical medical content, herbs and their medical usages, and more, compiled from about a dozen different sources, with an expansive preface, a short list of archaic medicinal terms which I thought necessary to explain for the reader, and a section with some other works of note which can be consulted for further reading.
