Forthcoming titles

Holy Daimon
Frater Acher

We are pleased to announce that our next title, Holy Daimon by Frater Acher, is scheduled for release this Summer. The result of more than ten years of practical and theoretical magical research, the book is in three parts: History, Memory and Practice, providing a well-grounded introduction, as well as a practical path to creating communion with one's holy daimon. 

Rather than leaning on Abramelin or Crowley’s Liber Samekh, Frater Acher returns to the source, analysing the daimon as it was experienced in three cultures, Chaldean, Zoroastrian and Ancient Greek. These give a necessary overview to contextualise the material that follows, and restores the daimon to its central place in the journey of attainment. 

Acher then gives a full account of his own personal communion with his holy daimon. As a magical record of a modern practitioner it is an important testimony for those embarking on the path, and a rare account given the secrecy within which most practitioners operate.  

In the third and final section of the work Acher gives his streamlined exercises for attaining communion with the daimon; culminating in a fully restored final rite from the original Greek Magical Papyri. Whilst the author's focus is on enabling hands-on magical work, the book is not a traditional grimoire or 'grammar of magic', as the work is of deeply mystical nature.

Magister Officiorum
Julio Cesar Ody

With Magister Officiorum, Ody has produced an essential text for those who want to practice Solomonic magic. The result of patient and extensive magical work, this is a record of attainment informed by the Western magical tradition, Espiritismo and Obeah. The subjects covered in this study include: the place of evocation, the magical circle and the book, the ritual tools and regalia, including the black handled knife, the brazen vessel, robes, and the pentagonal and hexagonal figures. Also addressed is ritual purity, and the necessity of authority in the art of commanding spirits.

Ody gives clear explanations of the process of ritual and the methods by which to ensure success in evocation – understood as a physical interaction between magician and spirit. Further, he demonstrates principles of magical working that are not explicitly given in the typically terse instructions of the grimoires. Also given is a method for the obtaining of a key to be used in the eventual binding of a King; how to bottle spirits; a working with the vessel and skull; and a rite for obtaining a patron spirit under the auspices of Lucifer. The rites given are suitable for solo practice and group workings, notably using the model of the séance (black table spiritism) in order to establish spirit cults. As a result the text will be of aid to both novitiates and experienced practitioners alike.

72
Ayis Lertas

The 72 demons, devils and monstrous beasts constrained within this 'book without words' by Ayis Lertas are iconic of all the vices, ills, impure appetites and perverse passions that thrive in the life of humankind.

In a style evocative of illustrations from medieval manuscripts, the artist presents, without explanation, a study of the afflictions that vex, tempt, thwart and harm us. These he has extracted from raw experience and distilled through art, so that a multitude of malign forces might be captured in the form of images to illuminate the obscure depths of the psyche. Contemplating these illustrations, unmediated by text, will provoke a personal response in the viewer, the images acting in accordance with one's capacity, or resolve, to penetrate the wilder reaches of the inner world. For some this will be a medicine, or a drug, for others a source of sensual and intellectual arousal.

The phantasmagoria of 72 draws from the long history of European demonology, but is marked by the acuity and black humour of the artist.

Jinn Sorcery
Rain Al-Alim

Jinn Sorcery by Rain Al-Alim is a compilation of jinn conjurations and rituals translated from rare Arabic manuscripts in the author's private collection.

Following an introduction summarising traditional beliefs about the world and nature of the jinn, the author proceeds to describe the Middle Eastern occult methods for summoning these beings, techniques of dream divination, the mandal and invocation. In his Preface, Al-Alim writes:

Many of the methods and techniques covered in the old Arabic manuscripts and grimoires are unknown to Western readers. This book is primarily intended for this audience, presenting a complete translation of jinn summoning techniques selected from multiple magical treatises that will bridge the gap between the Western and Islamic occult sciences. My wish is to facilitate the exchange of esoteric ideas between the two worlds, and to inspire further research on the subject.

The main body of the work comprises translations into English of numerous rituals and operations selected from manuscripts, primarily from Egypt and Morocco, in the author's collection.
