The Incubus: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This short work is partially about nothing more technically supernatural than the topic of sleep paralysis, also known in colloquial terms at the time as the night-mare. This frightening topic is, literally speaking, not yet even quantified fully by science so I suppose that element is still of occult import; but of greater interest here are two other subtopics; herbal preparations for the condition, and a bit of back-story and lore regarding the older, demonic principle of the incubus supposedly responsible for such a phenomenon. This work is over 200 years old but displays a fairly advanced amount of rational insight.

Diabology: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

Diabology is a rather extensive work of demonology, although that is not the only subject. Indeed, it concerns itself with everything dark within the Christian spiritual framework and, naturally, thus the contrasting opposites of those same things and ideas; for the demon there is an angel, for Satan a God, and so forth. Altogether the work is quite dense as well, and it is much more an academic guide than a casual work. It is most interesting, perhaps, for its treatment of the very nature of good and evil based on the Bible, and elaborates at quite a lot of length on how this informs the Christian view of demons, including from a linguistic point of view.

It should be noted that some footnotes were omitted because they merely replicated quotations in the main work itself in German or Greek. I retained the Latin because it is interesting.

Spiritualism and Necromancy: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This is a rather nice work that primarily relates to demons and demonology, from the particular perspective of the fire and brimstone Methodist path that, in the 19th century, was at war with spiritualism. In the foreword, I had to make it clear to the reader that as an occultist I reject some of the anti-spiritualist materials here, although the first sections primarily deal with fraud mediums and is accurate.

According to this work, many mediums and self professed clairvoyants are indeed contacting spirits- but those spirits are evil demons from Hell instead of the souls of the dead or elemental forces. The religious arguments made here simultaneously make it clear that some spiritualists are not evil but rather misled, even if they are still bound for Hell.

The Divine Mystery: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This is an extremely interesting (and somewhat odd) little work that comes courtesy of the man who led the Rosicrucian FRC order (and fought with AMORC) for quite a large part of his life. Apparently interested in most sub-fields of occult lore, Clymer is known mostly for straight philosophical lore, but here has compiled three technical components into one work; a heavily altered variant of Sinistrari’s “Demoniality”, a short number of philosophical passages mentioning gnostic lore, and then a series of bits of actual dialogue between Jesus and the Virgin Mary on spiritual topics, which conforms to the FRC’s own ideology. Altogether the work is well worth reading, and its insinuation that the Virgin Mary was impregnated by a salamander, (a fire spirit) is perhaps heretical to main line christianity but interesting nonetheless.

The Devil: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This little work is a nice little addition to the spiritual library being amassed here- it isn’t about magic though, it’s actually a reformist tract from the godfather of agnosticism aimed at bringing the idea of Hell and Satan low. It’s a pretty good two pronged argument too, since it focuses on the rational (contraditions in the Bible, etc) and the emotional (the ethics of such a concept being real.) It should be noted that this is technically a long speech- an oratory- put to text and is not a stand-alone booklet at all, per se.

Assamese Demonology: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This booklet is a detailed study of some of the spirits and demonic forces within the local lore of the Assam region of India- for the geographically uninclined, the region far to the East, near the borders of Bangladesh and Burma. The local lore is rife with strange creatures- some more malevolent than others, some more dangerous and some more easily pacified. It contains a laundry list of exorcism practices as well which involve often burning various substances. Altogether extremely interesting. It amusingly contains a list of noted exorcists by region that is obviously outdated (anyone having been an adult in 1906 there being “probably” dead.)

Ars Theurgia Goetia: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

And now it is time for my 155th occult work and the final work of 2018- the Ars Theurgia Goetia, which is the second book and a component of the Lemegeton AKA Lesser Key of Solomon which I released previously. It required some degree of reformatting since the work is shorter, but it’s still its own technical stand-alone work. However, it should be noted that some content here explicitly requires the first book, the Ars Goetia, to function.

This particular part of the Lemegeton dwells on spirits which are less Hellish and strictly demonic than the former work, while naming some of them as largely malevolent. The number of purposes for these demons and their summonable dukes (and occasionally “under-dukes”) are less than the arcane and strange Ars Goetia.
