Realms of the Egyptian Dead: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This little work is one of the better, more dense pieces of Egyptology I’ve come across- one of the reasons I prioritized it in the new slew of works I have planned for the rest of 2018 into, probably, as late as mid 2020. Written by Alfred Wiedemann in the golden era of Victorian academic works, it is a broad overview of a few important topics within Egyptian pagan lore- especially focusing on the transition from live sacrifice to the use of clay figurines and similar things to lend a hand to the deceased, mummified Egyptian in the afterlife, as well as the topic of the self-contradicting nature of Egyptian lore; literally that within one burial two or more mythological tales scrawled on the tomb walls may tell stories which directly refute one another, causing legendary confusion.

It also contains a few bits about Egyptian mythology strictly related to Osiris and other deities, which is of decent import and quite interesting.

Demonism Verified and Analyzed: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This work is an excellent look at some of the christian conceptions of demonology from its era, in the roaring twenties. Based on field work in China and India, mostly by the author but referencing other missionaries as well, it purports to prove that demons exist, that evil is the agency of Satan, and that mesmerism and psychology play a role in possession.

It contains several hundred of these anecdotes and speaks of strange idolatrous practices in typical early 20th century form, while listing polytheism and similar things as spiritually hazardous. Oddly, while proposing government moralism, it decries literal suppression of such beliefs in favor of mere coercion and education. It also attacks spiritualism.

Valhalla, Myths of Norseland: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

I was looking around trying to find more works which involved paganism, especially Norse or Egyptian, to release over time, and some time ago I found about a dozen good works; this is one of them, just in time for that happy point in the year where the Fimbulwinter begins to decline away!

More a compilation than an authored work, its authors main contribution is its rather helpful index, as the preface she includes is a lengthy allusion to Christendom and the then-interesting facet of classical lore that people tended to ruminate on Rome and ignore the far north- a tendency now inverted today. It is a collection of twelve Norse tales, in poetic form, all the way up to Ragnarok and past it with the Regeneration. In this respect it is a standard collection, but an important one, especially for those who keep predicting Ragnarok literally and forgetting that it isn’t the end of history, just of a cycle.

Pagan Prayers: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This short work was, in its original format, over 120 pages in length- so it is almost as important as an example of the strangeness of early 1900s book formats as it is a guide to some liturgies, prayers, poems, and rituals of pagan groups.

Marah Ryan’s compilation here is derived from other sources and includes material from the Egyptian, Persian, Navajo, Hindu, and other paths; in most cases for this edition the Old English style of the prayers themselves was left intact because it had already been translated and transcribed and correcting it, if necessary to begin with, would have required the original sources. A fine collection of short pieces from these cultures- especially the Egyptian prayers and invocations.

37 pages.

General Update: Ars Goetia, Pagan Prayers, Morbid Stories, Aula Lucis, etc

It’s been a busy last couple of weeks; the Ars Goetia has been completely edited and my illustrator has the plans for illustrating so it may not be long before the most infamous of all grimoires is released in a decent and inexpensive modern edition. In other news, I completed a short alchemical work yesterday entitled “Aula Lucis”- it’s only 25 pages in length, but Thomas Vaughn did a very good job of generally being clear and not veiling his mostly-physical alchemical lore.

The new editing project is a compilation of prayers and invocations simply entitled “Pagan Prayers” and crafted at the dawn of the 20th century by Marah Ellis Ryan. The original format of this work is horrendous and half the pages are basically empty save for the titles of the subsequent very short prayers. The work will, due to major formatting overhaul, be reduced from about 120 pages to 40 or 50.
As before, Morbid Stories II is approaching the end of its first phase of development; the titles and rough outlines. These works involve my usual practice of entering a slightly berserker-like state where I am not completely aware of my writing and am mentally fixated on imagining the horrified reactions of people I dislike being forced to read the bizarre, grotesque stuff repeatedly. I am considering the possibility of compiling together all of the new entries with the old ones and splitting the categories themselves in half- thus technically MS II will contain some older entries while MS I will contain some new ones. Since I have to reformat the first volume, I will have to resubmit all the files anyways- I am considering the possibility.

Altogether this end year period will be full of work!
