Psychedelic Spirituality Second Edition: Now Available!

This work was one of my favorites to write- deviating partly from the academic and geared more towards my own anecdotes of psychedelic usage, I crafted this book not so much as an educational guide as a compilation of shorter sections which deviate in purpose and look to the historical, the spiritual, and sometimes the legal.

It is substantially similar to the first edition save for a slightly different format, some cleaning up of a few typos, and the removal or addition of a few portions which relate to the relatively significant political and legal differences between the year 2015 (when the first edition was released) and the present as 2018 matures and prepares to give way to the final year of this decade.

If you're interested in my own shamanic experiences, or a broad overview of the drug war, medicine, historical psychedelic usage, and more, you'll enjoy this work, I believe.

198 pages.

I Am Still Here

Although this may be the only post made in 2018, yes, I still control this blog. Let us hope we emerge victorious after this age of censorship, totalitarianism, zealot bullshit, and other random abuse.

Petit Albert Fine Press Edition: Pre-order Now!

For those of you anxiously awaiting a fine binding edition of one of my many works, the time has come at last; Ouroboros Press (whose works I have seen and highly applaud) is currently in the process of having 1,500 copies of the Petit Albert bound up; pre ordering is currently available, with the edition slated for April.

The Petit Albert requires little introduction; its treatise on the Hand of Glory alone makes it a notorious work; for those less versed in its content, it ranges from the talismanic arts, to a bit of alchemy, to folk remedies, to the extremely strange love and sex ritualism of the 18th century (at one point it suggests a way to literally restore virginity!) A must-have for the occultist, this work echoes beyond its era well into modernity but has not been, to my knowledge, released in anything other than paperback or electronic format prior. Having already released a paperback edition of this work, it was important that something more lasting, more attractive, be created.

As a folkish work the magick here is less about elaborate rituals than about simplistic ones; those interested in black magick will find plenty of lore here for their perusal and those interested in literature itself will find that this particular publisher has produced a number of widely applauded editions in the past; notably the Book of St. Germaine.
