Short Update Re: Ebooks

It’s time for a short announcement for several important pieces of information for my readers here.

1. I have transferred the files and information for the last 20ish works I have released to kdp. Soon they will be available on kindle as ebooks. I tend to drag my heels for months at a time on such things (because I myself do not like ebooks and tablets, I want physical copies of literary works) and then do them in spurts like this. This includes works like “The Piasa”, “The Roman Index of Forbidden Books”, and “Is the Devil a Myth?” among others.

2. Soon I will add links for both paperback and ebook copies to the category lists. For a few titles there will be no ebook because kindle’s platform has slightly different terms of service from Createspace for paperback works.

3. I have obtained a dozen new works to work on; some titles on alchemy, a few psychic works, and some mesmerism and other pseudoscience.

4. The tenth category will soon be added; “Folklore, Mythology, and Cryptozoology.” A new “Mysticism and Spirituality” category will absorb some works from other categories and replace the folk magic category.

Grimorium Verum Now Available

After some time acquiring new occult materials in order to release editions of yet more grimoires, the first of a half dozen or so works is now complete; the infamous Grimorium Verum, one of the more diabolical works within the sphere of such modest-length occult works from the Renaissance through the early 20th century.

Also known as the “True” grimoire, this specific work contains a strange mix of typical angelic or white workings (numerous allusions to the power of Adonay and other divine or angelic names) as well as a limited amount of astrological material mixed in with several rather dark rituals; one involving animal sacrifice, the other involving the decapitated head of a human being and some beans, used to summon a spirit for divinatory purposes.

The work is fully illustrated and edited; I have removed archaic language and modernized it, with a few exceptions for continuity, and simplified the first three illustrations which apparently serve no purpose except to illuminate the topic at hand, because the three marks (or sigils) given for, respectively, Lucifer, Beelzebub, and Astaroth, are not directly used in any of the summoning herein. The work can be taken as an extremely interesting mixture of traditional and folk magick, or else as a steganographic work which I explain to some depth in the introduction. Strangely at least one other edition has a fifth section tacked onto the end from the OTO, the Book of the Black Serpent, which is of an entirely different occult school and which no serious occultist would consider as having anything to do with Crowley’s nonsensical treatment of older traditions. This edition, obviously, omits this and other occasional attempts by the dishonest to cheapen the work. I have also finally corrected the all-too-obvious problem within the human head ritual, which calls for seven black beans but only accounts for five; the solution is simple- the original passage apparently forgets to notify the operator that not one but two beans are to be place in each eye. This otherwise minor oversight would be a severe problem for anyone actually attempting to use the work in a ritual form (I obviously do not condone the attempted use of decapitated human heads in rituals.)
