Books Forged from Hell Fire

I was preparing to publish Pyramidos: Self Initiation in the Aeon of Horus, and I showed the manuscript to Kevin to get his opinion. He suggested to Eamonn that he might be interested in publishing a limited edition of the book and, on hearing the idea I readily agreed to be involved with what appeared even from the outset to be an exciting and magical process- creating a modern grimior.

Writing Pyramidos

My latest book; Pyramidos: Self Initiation in the Aeon of Horus, has its genesis in a series of correspondences between myself and a magician of considerable knowledge and experience. Having both found success in our practice of magick we both find ourselves in a position of offering guidance and advice to novices at the occult arts and we discussed potential strategies for providing useful and practical advice for these students as they embark upon the Path of the Wise.

The Mystical Magick of Theurgy

In recent weeks I have been in the final stages of publishing my fifth book, The Sword & The Serpent and my focus has necessarily shifted from the work of writing the book to that of publicizing it. This has entailed trying to explain the contents of the book to my prospective readers (all of you) and so, after years of considering the details of The Sword & The Serpent I have had to turn to considering the book as a whole.

Recommended Occult Reading

In my previous post I alluded to the fact that many modern students of the occult arts in their various forms are not acquainted with the classical texts on the subject. It is easy to criticize but more constructive to share and so I have given the subject some thought and compiled a list of the books that I found most useful in my own studies of magick.
