FROM THE PUBLISHER:

The Two Antichrists is a monograph by Peter Grey on the figure of Antichrist in a post-Christian and progressive Thelemic context. Opening with considerations on the future of witchcraft and its relation to radical ecology, Grey returns to the Babalon Working of Jack Parsons and L. Ron Hubbard, and considers a series of little examined texts from science fiction and the outer fringes of Scientology which form a ‘Babalon Apocrypha.’ By reading across these sources, the familiar story is revealed to have hidden depths and dimensions. Exploring the role of Antichrist in relation to Parsons and Hubbard, Grey provides insights into the initiatory drama of Thelema: of Satanic rites, Abyss and Angel. The Two Antichrists observes the long shadow cast by the monolith of Scientology, and Parsons’ eclipsed sodality The Witchcraft. Looking to the future, he envisions an emergent space witchcraft, infused with the spirit of Do What Thou Wilt. The book concludes with a series of non-denominational rituals and revised Antichrist workings. The work is a fusion of inspiration, research and ritual, from which Grey draws the first lines of his vision of witchcraft in the dusk of our world.

FROM THE PUBLISHER: 

In TROLLRÚN: A Discourse on Trolldom and Runes in the Northern Tradition, Nicholaj de Mattos Frisvold opens the door to landscapes little known outside of Scandinavia. These landscapes are populated by mythical beings and land spirits which offer a quite different approach to the Northern Tradition than what is usual. Here the Aesir have taken a backseat in favour of discussions on the wider tapestry of Northern wisdom, such as trolldom, seidr and the legacy left by the Black Books of magic under the larger theme of ‘What the Trolls told’, comprising the first part of TROLLRÚN. This is followed by a presentation of the Elder runes, runology, and rune magic, all rooted in Scandinavian ideas of the use of runes and their magic. TROLLRÚN views this landscape through the eyes of the cunning arts, where the ice, the frost, the midnight sun, and the majestic mountains and fjords become the orchestra of TROLLRÚN’s wisdom, drenched in the powerful atmosphere of the magical north.

FROM THE PUBLISHER: 

One of the essential tools used in Hoodoo folk practice is the mojo bag which acts as a container of magical force(s), similar to a spirit box or pot. They serve as amulets or better still as charm bags and are commonly used in hoodoo folk practice, with its origins rooted in West Africa. A Hoodoo Doll-Baby, Dolly, Poppet, Effigy, is a representation of a person made in the likeness of the target and is one of the most essential tools used in Hoodoo sympathetic sorcery. In Hoodoo Mojo Bags & Baby Dolls author James Udung describes the construction, preparation and use of these tools in this follow-up to his Hoodoo Graveyard Sorcery.
