General Update Time!

Alright literary world;

It’s time for a little bit of an update- I’m quite excited for the next three months, that happy period of time where summer winds down towards Halloween, AKA the greatest holiday of the year. After Halloween, there’s nothing to look forward to until spring except stuffing yourself on Thanksgiving and Yule.

I have four works that I am definitively working on during this period; two herbal works (another government circular by the author of “Weeds as Medicine” and the South Sea Herbal) which will require illustration are on the docket, along with a short alchemical tract and the current work I am editing; “Secrets of Black Arts!” which is similar to other travelers booklets from the late 19th century and into the 1920s- these short works were part historical and part titillating grotesquery. Don’t worry, those won’t be the only works I release over this period; I have a half dozen others ready to format but I am not sure which of them will be completed- along with, I hope, the beginnings of SIH two.

That’s about all. Don’t dog-ear your books.

General Literary Update: Forthcoming Works

I 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 list of some of the works I’ll be releasing over time.

-The Omnium-Gatherum: A substantial oracle twain with pre-prohibition temperance propaganda.
-Modern Vampirism by Eaves: A work on psychic vampirism among other topics.
-The Golden Wheel: A lengthy fortune teller apparently based on Napoleon’s Oraculum.
-Of Ghosts and Spirits: A very old (late 16th century) work.
-Witchcraft, the Art of Fortune Telling: A Norwood Gypsy-style fortune teller from the very early 19th century.
-The Origin of the Werewolf Superstition: A short academic treatise on the subject.
-Magic, Divination, and Demonology among the Hebrews: A self explanatory work.
