A Saturnian Grimoire
By Dr. Arthur Moros
List Price $59.95
Germany: Theion Publishing, 2017. Limited to 725 copies. A FINE COPY. Premium cloth volume, bound blue-grey, with custom moiré end papers, headbands, and embossed panel, and printed on a special sheet of Design paper, wood-free. Illustrated with a color plate by Luciferian Artist Erica Fervel, and several additional images in black and white. 176 pages. Royal octavo.


Feared, bedeviled and vilified but also venerated, adored and embraced,
Saturn and his shadowy powers have strongly influenced the spiritual and magical life of cultures and individuals for millennia. Concentrating especially on His antinomian and anti-cosmic character, The Cult of The Black Cube is a seminal study on the occult essence and esoteric significance of Saturn in theory and practice.

This work is divided into three main sections:
Part I examines the ambivalent role of Saturn in various religious and magical traditions around the world focusing especially on His Islamic, Classical and Indian cults. Fleshing out the common traits underlying Saturn’s global manifestations, Dr. Moros argues for a perennial cult of Saturn expressed in various cultural guises.

Part II and III comprise the Grimoire of the Black Cube which provides a comprehensive armory of occult weaponry to initiate Saturnine contact and to establish an individual cultus of Saturn. Part II presents a thorough esoteric analysis of the Saturnine Cult and the nature of its initiatic path. Part III is devoted to the practical applications of Saturnine worship and magic.
This tome is an indispensable work for any serious Saturnian occult initiate and researcher.
The author Dr. Moros (pseudonym) was a scholar of religions and a devoted initiate of Saturn for 30 years. Sadly he passed away in early 2017 under mysterious circumstances. This book is his esoteric legacy.

This work is introduced by Germany’s (in)famous Frater U.:D.:, legendary magician and prominent member of the Fraternitas Saturni.

An American Shaman
by Cornelia Benavidez
Paperback: 308 pages
Publisher: Megalithica Books (May 19, 2017)
List Price: $18.99

In 1999, Victor Anderson, the founder of the American Witchcraft Feri Tradition, started a project with his long-time student and friend Cornelia Benavidez. At first, she didn’t know that he was placing in her hands his last words to the world and especially to the initiates of the Feri Tradition, to be released when he felt his teachings would be the most needed. Now is that time.

From the 1960s onwards, Victor Anderson revolutionized paganism. As Elder, Teacher and Grandmaster of the Feri Tradition, he trained some of the most influential voices in modern paganism and was respected worldwide. Calling his tradition authentic, ancient and sex positive, Victor and his wife Cora challenged all sides of religious and pagan persuasions, shocking many into examining their racial and sexual prejudices and bias. They called for people to educate themselves by any means possible, to examine history and culture, to better understand themselves and the divine quest of which we all are a part. Though on one hand Victor’s path grew straight from the soil of indigenous culture and traditional magical craft, he also passionately championed the sciences. Victor was also an accomplished poet and his book, “Thorns of the Blood Rose” was considered a classic when it was published in 1970.

As with so many visionaries, Victor was ahead of his time. Though often considered controversial during his lifetime, through the interviews in this book he clarifies mistakes and rumors concerning his history and the Feri Tradition. The book also includes an intriguing essay on Victor’s introduction to the craft, by writer and artist Sara Star, and the intensive research done by genealogist William Wallworth on Victor’s family.


Devonshire Witchcraft, Folklore & Magic
by Gemma Gary
Paperback: 288 pages
Publisher: Troy Books (August 10, 2017)
List Price: $23.00

Silent as the trees is a book exploring the old witchcraft, magical traditions and folklore nurtured amidst the village communities, hills, moors and ancient woods of Devonshire in South West England.
In this, her sixth book, Gemma Gary introduces Devon's witches and magical folk, examining their lives and their magic; from historical figures such as the 'white witch' Caulks of Exeter, the Devonshire 'toad witches' and an examination of the trial of the Bideford Witches, to more modern practitioners such as the 'cunning man' and witchcraft collector Cecil Williamson.

Old stories in Devon tell of the often troublesome encounters between ordinary folk and the world of witchery. These encounters give valuable insights not only into the strange and fantastical beliefs surrounding witches, but also the traditional methods of beneficial magic and 'counter cursing' via the experiences of those who sought the aid of the 'white witches' and conjurors to lift the maleficia of the 'black witch'.

Devon is a county particularly rich in folklore and mythology, in which we also often find the character of the witch, and the heady presence of Black Dog apparitions, the Wild Hunt and the Devil Himself. Many such tales weave their way around the plentiful strange stones and haunting ancient sites of this most mysterious landscape.

Within this book Gemma Gary also guides us through the fascinating witch belies of the region surrounding 'skin turning'; the old witch-arte of bestial shape-shifting, as well as the tradition of the familiar spirit and the witches' methods for gaining spirit companions.

Silent as the Trees is two books in one, for included within its pages is a 'Black Book of Devonshire Magic' detailing an extensive collection of genuine Devonshire spells, charms and magical rites.

Within this collection we find magical workings for power, spirit vision, cure charms for all manner of ailments and injuries, curse magic, protections and magical defence, love charms, good fortune, charms for animals, and traditional Devonshire toad magic.

Ecstasy, Runes, & Norse Magic
by Diana L. Paxson
Paperback: 320 pages
Publisher: Weiser Books (September 1, 2017)

Odin is arguably one of the most enigmatic and complex characters in Norse mythology. Revered since the Viking Age, Odin has been called the greatest of the gods―the god of words and wisdom, runes and magic, a transformer of consciousness, and a trickster who teaches truth. He is both war god and poetry god, and he is the Lord of Ravens, the All- Father, and the rune master.

Odin: Ecstasy, Runes, and Norse Magic is the first book on Odin that is both historically sourced and accessible to a general audience. It explores Odin’s origins, his appearances in sagas, old magic spells, and the Poetic Edda, and his influence on modern media, such as Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings trilogy. Each chapter features suggestions for rituals, exercises, and music, so readers can comprehend and become closer to this complicated god.

Author Diana Paxson, an expert on Viking-era mythology, provides a complete portrait of Odin and draws on both scholarship and experience to provide context, resources, and guidance for those who are drawn to work with the Master of Ecstasy today.

"Reading Diana Paxson’s most excellent book, Odin: Ecstasy, Runes, and Norse Magic, whilst listening to WardRuna. This is perhaps the most comprehensive book ever written about Odin. Written with sound scholarship allied to intuitive perception. Capturing the best of both, and a sense of humour to boot. Each chapter is ended by a list of suggestions for working with him. Apart from the scholarship and poetic vision, it is also a most pleasant read! Recommended for everyone interested in Odin. Very, very helpful to students, but also rich in details and associations from other good books. which are listed in the bibliography! All in all, a very worthwhile work and as such equally useful to Old Timers like me." ―Freya Aswynn, author of Northern Mysteries and Magick: Runes & Feminine Powers

"Diana Paxson is both a scholar and a storyteller, which shows in her exhaustive, yet enthralling, Odin: Ecstasy, Runes, and Norse Magic. The figure of Odin, God of battles, but also of inspiration and poetry, lord of the slain, looms through the background of Western culture, affecting everything from our conception of kingship--Queen Elizabeth is descended from him, through the Saxon kings of Wessex--to the figure of Gandalf in Tolkien's work. Paxson takes us back to the original, and shows the archetypic, mythic power of this figure." ―S. M. Stirling, author of the Emberverse series

"Diana Paxson’s wonderful book Odin: Ecstasy, Runes, and Norse Magic follows the trail of Odin, a wandering god, from his misty origins to his current manifestations. Paxson explores Odin’s history, as well as the poetry, literature, and other entertainments that he has inspired and in which he stars, both ancient and modern, from the Eddas to American Gods and from Tolkien to Wagner and Marvel. A god for the ages, Odin’s veneration remains vital and active. Paxson, a priestess, provides songs, rituals, magical exercises, and sound, practical advice to help you develop your own personal relationship with the Lord of Runes and Ecstasy. There is no one in the world that I’d rather learn about Odin from than Diana L. Paxson. Highly recommended." --Judika Illes, author of Encyclopedia of Spirits, Encyclopedia of 5000 Spells, and other books devoted to the magical and spiritual arts

About the Author:
Diana Paxson is a writer, priestess, and teacher who has been studying and teaching Germanic mythology and religion for nearly 30 years. She is the author of Taking Up the Runes, Essential Asatru, Trance-Portation, and Possession, Depossession, and Divine Relationships. Paxson also pioneered the recovery of traditional Norse oracular practice, described in The Way of the Oracle.


The History, Rituals, and Magic of Our Lady of the Holy Death
by Tracey Rollin
Paperback: 256 pages
Publisher: Weiser Books (October 1, 2017)
List Price: $16.95

Death welcomes everyone. This is the foundation for the veneration of Santa Muerte, or “Holy Death.” Considered to be the female personification of death, she is associated with protection and safe passage to the afterlife. She is also the patron saint of people who live on the fringes of society and often face violence and death. In recent years her constituency has expanded to include the LGBT community and people who are marginalized or whose jobs put them at significant risk of death such as military and police personnel. Santa Muerte is hailed as their potent and powerful protector, capable of delivering them from harm and even granting miracles.

Santa Muerte is a complete ritual guide to working with this famous―and infamous!―Mexican folk saint. It takes us beyond the sensational headlines to reveal the truth about why Santa Muerte is so beloved by so many. Author Tracey Rollin presents simple, straightforward methods for working with Holy Death that may be used alone or easily incorporated into your own magical practice.

The Most Faithful and Accurate Edition of John Dee's Conversations with Angels
An Incomparable Treasure Ten Years in the Making

This is a must-have resource for Dee aficionados and esoteric scholars who absolutely need the most meticulously detailed version of these highly influential works. A labor of love more than ten years in the making, these exquisite linen and leather-bound volumes include impeccable transcripts of four manuscripts from the British Library and one from the Bodleian Library in Oxford. Two of these manuscripts have never been published.

In these volumes, the breadth of content, the level of detail, and the fidelity to the originals is unmatched. John Dee's original writings have never been presented in such an immaculate fashion, free of the typos, oversights, and omissions that have previously plagued serious Dee scholarship. 

This complete, 1760-page work also includes folio numbers, errata, notes, and ten comprehensive appendices to provide essential context and enhance the practical understanding of the manuscripts:

* Dee's European Journey (with map)
* The Ninety-One Parts of the Earth (with maps and table)

* Brief Biographical Guide
* An Examination of John Dee's 48 Claves Angelicæ

* List of Spiritual Creatures
* A Selection of Interesting Quotations
* Complete Angelic Lexicon
