Occult Japan: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

The topic of Shinto is one I haven’t really studied much of before; I waited for years to finally attain a proper copy of this book that could reasonably be edited from and was finally able to do so fairly recently. Its author needs little introduction since he wasn’t just an avid studier of Asian religion but also an astronomer of considerable fame who proclaimed Mars to be covered in artificial canals.

The work is almost more notable for its time period and cultural significance than for its strictly religious content since it was written from a western perspective in the very center of the Meiji period- the rapidly shifting cultural ethos of Japan is thus overlapped seamlessly with age-old ritual customs and spiritual lore in this work, acting almost as a time capsule. Highly recommended.

General Update Time!

Alright everyone!

I have gotten back into the swing of editing. I am currently working on Waites’ “Devil Worship in France” which is a great book- after that I have several dozen more works planned. Happily, I have someone looking at illustrating a pair of herbals and a work by Manly Hall.

That will round of the work through July, probably. I need to go on a hunt for new literary material due to a glaring oversight on my part for years which has handicapped me- let’s just say I am not an expert with regards to pdf files! This is a happy thing though; the amount of material I can work with has at least tripled upon recognition of this “misfortune.”

Soon I plan on making two new sections on the literary blogs, because the amount of work has become too large for the current categorization system.

Happy times!

The Theosophy of Christ: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This short work represents a contemporary look at Theosophy from a perspective different from that of the Oriental tradition. While Theosophy at large brought East to West, this and similar works spoke more of Jesus and attempted to re-assert the supremacy of Christendom over spiritism and similar phenomena.

Largely, it encourages prayer for healing, claiming that the dispensation of healing miracles did not end in antiquity.

The Laws of the Higher Life: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This short work is one of the many writings of the rather famous (or infamous!) Annie Besant; a Theosophist and one of the main figures thereof. This work lays out three particular laws (or sets of laws) governing a higher existence, ascendant and enlightened. They are, respectively, consciousness, duty, and sacrifice, and form a deeply Hinduism-tainted variant of Theosophy in part derived from her continuingly deep involvement in the Indian liberation movement. It alludes to and quotes the Bhagavad Gita and speaks at some length of aspects of Hindu mythology.

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!

Celtic Religion: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This little work is a fairly brief primer on the basics of Celtic spiritual systems. It goes into the division of the Druid priesthood in the pagan era, among other things, and correlates the development of the religious beliefs there with the advancement of contemporary culture. Altogether it’s a very good work, although a few of the tenets it espouses have been largely forsaken by modern anthropology.

Celtic Religion: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This short but coherent work was penned back in one of my favorite eras and styles of literature- the academic theory and archaeological/historical thought of that happy period during the rampant social upheaval of the early technological era- with its tintypes, early moving pictures, and obsession with tombs and temples.

Divided into multiple sections, it has a bit of linguistics, a bit of ancient history, a bit of then-modern archaeology, and plenty of Druidism. While some of its academic content has been largely forgotten these days (especially with regards to its very proto-eugenic view of the progression of civilization) it is still a very good work. It contains a short bibliography with other texts as well for those interested in a larger look at the subject.
