Essays in Occultism: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This work is quite nice, and was written from a dedicated Catholic perspective- indeed, the slow march of time has seen some of these feasibly canonical ideas cast aside by the Vatican even as they are retained by lay Catholics in large part- such as a belief that seances and ouija boards can actually cause demonic influence. These days the church itself tends to render those to the realm of quasi-sinful but not paranormally dangerous.

It provides numerous examples of mystical phenomena like bilocation and bicorporeality as well, and gives many short stories and tales to illustrate its claims. In one very interesting passage we see a story about a priest who became cataleptic only for his apparition to be seen attending the then-dying pope.

General Update: Phase Three of Editing, Re-editing Project, etc!

Alright literary world; time for an important update!

With “Mystic Will” released two days ago as of the time of this post, it is now time for a general cursory overview of what happens next; all of my works through the last were under spiritual contract of sorts and I not only met but exceeded my goal time-wise. This sets the stage for continual literary success; not a lot of people have catalogs of releases that extend to the size I have amassed and there’s nowhere to go but up.

The first goal after the 200th edition was to clean up my work files; I had four folders scattered across my computer and more on several USB drives with vestigial half-completed projects, source files I already edited from, and random images and notes I’d written. It took the last two days to clean them up. Now, that step is complete.

The second goal is to immediately complete a couple of the partially-done projects such as “Diabology” and possibly the “Asuri Kalpa” to knock them out of the way and be able to put those files at long last into the “completed works” storage.

The third goal is to really scrape my way through my usual sources for material to edit from and try to grab a few dozen more works of note. I culled my source files from about 1,000 to 54 in total, removing overly long works, poorly formatted works, and works I am uninterested in. I want to make sure to still release works fairly regularly but it won’t be nearly at the same rate as the last half a year or so.

The fourth goal is to get to re-editing a few of my releases, especially “Fruits of Eden” which I plan to have professionally re-illustrated, and will expand substantially, with a new foreword, one new section, and several dozen additional species entries now that I have so many herbal resources to draw from that I did not prior.

So it will be a busy half decade or so ahead. Cheers!

Letters From An Occult Student: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This is a fairly short work that is nonetheless interesting for two types of content; first, its fusion of apparently religious Christian material with Hinduism (often an element of theosophy although I could not find any information on the author being involved with the same) and second, its allusions to telegraphy, atoms, magnetism, and the like, in regards to the occult. These topics were widely popular in magical and philosophical movements until the roaring twenties came crashing down and more technologies were developed.

It contains multiple how-to passages actually teaching some occult practices, of whatever style or order the author belonged to.

The Aeth Mystery: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This is a nice little Rosicrucian work released a century ago by the Fraternity of the Rosy Cross- Clymers’ order. As a slight aside the order still exists in Pennsylvania and their mailing address, though not the same as that given in this work, is on Clymer Road- just an interesting aside, since most orders do not last nearly a century.

The content here is somewhat vague because it is in part advertising initiation into the order and the availability of more advanced works- more generally it discusses a few basic bits of Rosicrucian philosophy- however it should be noted that the original cover insinuates that the mystery of sex is discussed while it does not actually contain any apparent literal allusion to the subject (potentially a bit of advertising to the male audience!)

Death and the Afterlife: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This book is a strange one even by my own standards; it should be duly noted that due to censorship (and the deplatforming raids which have become a hallmark of the last few years) I have redacted a section of the book begrudgingly. You can find the original scans here if you wish and view this taboo knowledge for yourself about the races of mankind.

Andrew Jackson Davis, the author, wrote several works from the perspective of a clairvoyant. In this book he claims to have communicated with spirits and also to have seen the afterlife, which in his visions is rather varied, changeable, and wondrous, with rivers of light and many more wonders. For those intrigued by history it should be noted that this is one of the early works that would later form the backbone of eugenics-era philosophy without itself being eugenic in manner. Such philosophical writings would eventually give rise to the modern world.

Imperialistic Council of the Magi: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

Of all of the odd arcana I’ve encountered during half a decade editing occult works, this takes the cake for the most odd of all. Invoking none other than Eliphas Levi, it purports to tutor the reader in how to become a magi. Here I insert an opinion; this work is typical of the era (and for a couple decades after) and is more like the Book of Forbidden Knowledge than it is a standard occult philosophy guide, only without some of the bric-a-brac inclusions and advertisements for crystals and self help guides.

That isn’t to demean the work however- it’s a fun albeit short read, and the various teachings it employs aren’t inauthentic in and of themselves and roughly correlate to Theosophy and similar movements from the period. Highly recommended both for lore and laughs!

The Mystics of Islam: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This is a fine work from the golden age of academics when books treating on non-western groups weren’t full of nonstop “noble savage” mythology which had been common before and has become common again in our current intellectual dark age. Dwelling relatively little on the whirling dervishes and the more well known practices of some Sufi orders, it instead focuses on some of its historical subgroups including certain libertine factions and some groups which essentially equate to a form of islamized gnosticism. Altogether extremely well written with a decent bibliography to boot.
