General Update For July

As of right now I am juggling several good projects; Puckle’s “Funeral Customs” is first on the list, rapidly approaching completion, and will be available probably within a week, indeed possibly two or three more days if I continue editing at the rate I have been for some time.

I have obtained several new works that fit within the herbal and homeopathic category; I still have the South Sea Herbal to work on as well, so that makes three more entries within that category for the fairly near future; one is a longer work, the South Sea Herbal is rather short, and another that is about 60 pages in length, a simple hand guide to some herbal species.

The tenth category to be added to this blog (specifically for cryptids and folklore) will be made subsequent to the next title being finished that will fit into the same category. I may eliminate the folk magic category and create a new one specifically for mysticism which requires shuffling a few titles around as well- into that category will go works like the Sepher Bahir, along with a few works currently in the Divination category which are more spiritual as opposed to some of the routine fortune-telling titles.

Over the coming months I hope to return to works of divination and, once the South Sea Herbal is illustrated and released, it will finally be time to unleash a stand-alone variant of the Ars Goetia on the world and, after that, a version of the Lesser Keys of Solomon; the most famous of all grimoires.

General Update Time: Upcoming Releases

Alright 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 to return to grimoires and work through the Ars Goetia (as a stand-alone release) and to begin working on the other books of the Lesser Keys. A modified version of my Ars Notoria will be wrapped up into this bundle.

June and July will bring a slew of psychic works and a new literary category. After that, I plan to return to my own titles and begin hammering Sickness in Hell II out.

These plans are malleable, but the year ahead looks like some good stuff.

Clavicles of Solomon: Now Available!

At long last one of the most important grimoires has been edited and is now available for purchase- the famous Clavicula Salomonis.

The problem with such a text is clear; multiple manuscripts with similar content compete for the same title, including conflated works and variants of older versions. I chose to stick with just one of these original manuscripts, although I do intend to include content from Sloane 3847 in a future release which will be longer and more “complete” in the sense of containing work within the same general tradition. This latter manuscript, of course, is labeled “The Clavicle of Solomon as revealed by Ptolemy the Grecian.”

The work’s content is part based on symbols and pentacles and partly invocation- the latter is primarily a series of conjurations and commands aimed at spirits to cause them to do the bidding of the master- the term used here for the conjurer or sorcerer himself. It is only partially diabolical, much of the content being designed not to work evil spells but to prevent harm to the master while conjuring.
