  • The Devil’s Supper (Deluxe Edition)

    ‘The Devil’s Supper’ is a critical enquiry into popular culture, past and present. The text explores the myths and realities of the so called Witches Sabbat. Using trial depositions , source documents, contemporary poems and literary accounts, a hidden history is unfurled, offering a totally unique understanding of this occulted enigma. From Fasting to Feasting, the mystery of ritual, sacred Vessels of Transformation is exposed. The myriad masks of the Devil are fully removed, layer by layer in celebration of his multi-faceted and ingenious complexities. Along the way, we explore the philosophical and theological enquiries that have long held us in their thrall. We tackle the weighty topics of evil, who the Devil really serves and how this impacts upon the true virtue of the Grail as panacea or poison, overturning prescribed opinion to discover the real thread that binds these enigmatic elements together and how these things are even connected within occulted custom, lore, tradition and law.’ October 2017.

  • The Blood of the Earth

    Fine ‘Black Gold’ edition hand bound in full black Nigerian goat, gilt blocked with weeping sun device. Custom marbled oil and gold endpapers, ribboned and presented in a slipcase. Industrial culture is in collapse. There is no infinite growth on a finite planet and oil, our most critical resource, has passed peak. We have entered a period of radical flux, and magic must respond to the world in which it operates, or it is nothing but empty escapism. The Blood of the Earth: An Essay on Magic & Peak Oil is a challenging and radical book. It fuses hard physical science with an adept’s understanding of magic. It is a smart, articulate and devastating piece of writing. You could call it a polemic. You could call it a prophetic work. We believe it is essential reading for the modern magician. Magic, like peak oil, is the voice our civilisation has failed to heed. Greer argues passionately that the answers to our darkening age are to be found in the practice of magic, provided we understand what it can and cannot do. He gives a lucid explanation of how magic works and crucially, where it does not. His vision of the future covers the dangers of political thaumaturgy and the threats of new dictatorships in an increasingly unstable world. Neither does he shy away from a critique of the mind control antics of the black magicians of the advertising industry. Cautionary examples of UFO cults, mysterious assassinations and fake science are all grist for his mill. Whilst attacking the failures of scientific materialism and the empty technological utopias he does not spare the New Age. Instead he presents a tour de force of occult philosophy covering Neoplatonism, Theurgy, Ritual magic, and thinkers as diverse as Aristotle, Giordano Bruno, Joséphin Péladan and Rudolph Steiner. He presents the highly practical mental training methods of magic for countering the tyranny of dualistic thinking. Clearly written and accessible, The Blood of the Earth is part of the fusion of deep ecology and deep paganism we continue to champion, and is equally relevant to heathen, druid, magician and witch. By reading this book you will have a far clearer understanding of the unfolding future. More than that, it will give you clear and direct strategies to break free of the mind forg’d manacles.

  • Scales of the Serpent (Deluxe)

    Edition of 30 - Signed by the author including a handwritten quote from Liber CCXXXI - Includes several facsimile holographic pages from the author’s private notebooks bound in - Deep red cloth, extensive stamping to front board, slipcase, custom endpapers designed by the author, sewn binding, dustjacket - 8.5 x 5.5 inches, 22 full color illustrations plus a color frontispiece and full bibliography Scales of the Serpent draws its primary inspiration from Kenneth Grant’s Nightside of Eden and the exploration of those realms analogous to what Michael Bertiaux refers to as Universe B. The book comprises the sigils of the cells of the qliphoth from Liber CCXXXI (with commentary) presented in a form intended to facilitate meditation and visionary work in accessing the back of the Tree of Life, the nightside, which prior to Grant’s work had been ignored or denied. A separate and substantial text explores threads leading towards the void which is the gateway to the reverse of the Tree, that noumenal nothing of which the phenomenal something is but the illusory reversed reflection, and gives some indications as to the methods employed and routes taken by earlier explorers, intentionally or otherwise. These particular threads have been picked up and followed as a result of the author’s workings within the Ordo Typhonis and, more specifically, within the Lamal Lodge. Learn More

  • Focus of Life - Redux

    The Focus of Life: The Mutterings of Aos, is arguably the most biographically significant of all Spare's published works. Often obscure, magical and fragmentary, it invites exploration of a strange Nietzschean landscape through what Spare termed 'the labyrinth of the alphabet.' But the recent discovery of Spare's original conceptual folio for the book, once owned by the respected writer E.M. Forster, has revealed an unseen series of powerful magico-erotic drawings - termed by Spare 'blasphemous Ideographs' - that provide an important key to understanding the 'secret ritual of Self-Love' that underlies this evocative and deeply personal work. This new issue of The Focus of Life provides readers with a high quality facsimile of the 1921 first edition, together with a full colour facsimile of the newly discovered conceptual folio for the project. Drawings too explicit for publication in 1921 have thus been reunited with the magical narrative, providing new insight for those exploring the artist's life and magical philosophy. These important works are further augmented with critical essays from Phil Baker and Robert Ansell. Learn More

  • Liber Nigri Solis - Auric Edition

    Liber Nigri Solis, edited by Victor Voronov, elaborates the occult, magical and initiatory work of two esoteric orders. Presenting the aeonic history, mythic imagery, and arcane aesthetics of the Black Sun along with its alchemical and astrological aspects and significances, this opus includes a concise though multi-faceted esoteric system in theory and practice suitable for work with the Black Sun on microcosmic, mesocosmic, and macrocosmic levels. It will enable solitary practitioners and occult colleagues alike to cultivate the Gnosis of the Sol Niger through self-initiatory workings, rites, and operations of sinister alchemy. The reader will be provided with eighteen keys which open the nine Infernal Gates and the nine Gates of Radiant Darkness, ultimately leading to the vision of the Black Sun, which radiates twelve Crooked Paths that cross the nine Thresholds. The text also expounds significant concepts such as the Fivefold Unmanifest or the Grand Chymical Conjunction of the arcane Black Suns that unveils the fiery gates of the Inverse Opus. Beyond researches concerning the sunspot cycle and cosmological considerations pertaining to Indo-Iranian mythology, substantial theoretical and operative material concerning plague-magic and epidemics has been included. Liber Nigri Solis is a truly controversial grimoire and whether one agrees or not with all of its antinomian gnosis and sinister strategies, the uniqueness, sophistication and otherworldly power of its system is undeniable. Lavishly illustrated with artwork commissioned especially for this book, Liber Nigri Solis also features a fascinating, elaborate introduction by Dr. Eva Kingsepp of Stockholm University. Hand bound in Emerald-Green goat leather, front embossing, black lettering on spine, raised bands, ribbon. Each auric copy will feature an additional ivory sheet. This extra page will contain a unique hand drawn sigil and corresponding handwritten magical text pertaining to one of sixty occult concepts of the Black Sun. All copies will be true individual talismanic grimoires of Sol Niger, consecrated to the current. Learn More

  • Vudu Cartography

    Drawn from his experiences in Haiti, Bertiaux's own evocative voudon 'art brut' images create a map for those regions of 'invisible power', giving the reader ingress to the 'mysteries and hiddenesses of an exotic theology, with its spiritist twists and turns and esoteric spaces.'
