Shaman Saiva and Sufi: Now Available!


Of all the academic works I have edited thus far this is one of the most interesting of all; it dates to that sweet-spot period of occult study between the 1880s and the 1920s which I favor. This particular work delves fairly deep into Malaysian magic but it isn’t just magic per se, in the sense of spells and such, but also religious ritualism, how it overlaps between, in the case of Malaysia, Islamic, Hindu, Buddhist, and other practice.

Perhaps most notable here is the inclusion of both cryptozoology and demonology along with folklore and superstition itself.
