General Update Time!

Alright literary world!

I am now in the Netherlands, and taking a short break from actual literary work; having edited 250 different editions, I figure it’s a good time to take a week or so to just focus on exploring a new and unfamiliar area. It’s warmer here than in my native Vermont so I am enjoying an extended season of “no frost and daytime temperatures well into the 50s.”

That is not to say the work has ended, though! It never will!

Over the next few days I intend to try and obtain a a few dozen new books and booklets to edit; I need fifty, of course, to attain my ultimate goal of 300 editions, which I hope to complete by the end of 2020. I already organized my work files, and I’ll begin #251 fairly soon- but I also need to cull a few editions since some works are easier or more relevant than others. I start getting antsy if I don’t do my editing or writing for extended periods. To me, a vacation is when you do the same work but in a new location, so expect new releases before October ends and, if I have my ‘druthers, #260 before Christmas.

Hypnotism, Personal Magnetism, Physical Culture, Health Breathing, and Magnetic Bathing: Now Available!

And now the award for most obtusely titled booklet goes to!…

Zach Shed is an interesting individual; I can’t seem to find any info about him other than that he authored this booklet at the dawn of the 20th century; originally, it was horizontally aligned (wider than tall) and its title beckons the question “why?” Nonetheless, it’s a good work overall; it suggests the use of healthy breathing exercises, positivity, hypnosis, and magnetic bathing, as well as dietary changes, to prolong health and generally stave off disease and age. Some of its suggestions are in vogue even today; a lot of health “nuts” drink lemon water preferentially and endorse the breathing practices of Tai Chi, etc. Proponents of the alkaline diet beware- this work stresses the need for balanced acidity.

Alright literary world!

I’ve been busy editing at a much faster than normal pace over the prior month or so- this has culminated in running low on material and searching for more; which is great since I was able to obtain a grimoire that formerly was not available in a form I could work with- a notable one, which is similar to the Petit Albert but gets less attention. I am about half done editing it currently, but its format isn’t great so it is a slow-ish process.

After it is released (the 240th edited occult work!) I will be proceeding with plans to create a couple new categories for the literary blogs; for those of you seeing this on Blogspot, I also have a WordPress under the same moniker. For those on WordPress, of course, I have one on Blogger.

This is great news since I have a bunch of new works also of various lengths and types to edit over the coming years; and that’s the span I have in mind- this is no short term endeavor but rather a life-long endless project.

Alright literary world!

I am just finishing up the first third or so of edited work 230; Gleanings of a Mystic, which is a Rosicrucian book comprised of chapters which are on disparate topics, originally in essay form. As such, with that mark nearly achieved I figured it was time to give a quick update on plans for the near future. I will be going on vacation fairly soon; a work vacation, so I will still be editing and making my normal videos- indeed since I’ll be traveling abroad I might make more than my normal video load. I am trying to get to 250 works by the end of the year and thankfully it looks fairly likely that this is achievable.

Several dozen works are there in my source files awaiting a good edit. As to which come first, that is your guess as much as mine since I tend to bounce from subtopic to subtopic in the occult quite randomly.

I do have a couple of decent fortune telling works lined up and those are always fun; once they’re done I can write a “book of books” work, detailing my own study of the evolution of dream-and-oracle style prognostication works through the last two centuries.

Fun ahead!

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!

My Official Website is Now Active

ENTER THE GLORY

Alright everyone!

I am extremely pleased to announce that I now have a personal website. It is not completely done yet but it’s in prime form, and will have a few other things added over the future.

And yes, for the many of you who want them, mugs are indeed now available.

Check it out!

General Update Time!

Alright literary world!

It’s time for another general update; the garden is more or less complete so I will be returning to editing books fairly soon. I have a few dozen planned and lined up for the year.

Most of them are more on the academic side, with a few fortune telling works- a couple herbals round out the library and will take me near the 250 edition level- a fine place to be, well ahead of my expectations.

My vacation is almost over. Onward!
