Avalonia Books Releases Both Sides of Heaven

Avalonia Books has just released Both Sides of Heaven, a new anthology in which I have a piece on the mysterious Green Butterfly from the Grimorium Verum.  Their blurb follows:

BOTH SIDES OF HEAVEN is a collection of 18 essays by some of the foremost modern esoteric writers, occult scholars and magicians.* In their personal contributions they share their experiences, research and unique insights into the spiritual realms of the mysterious beings who have played such an important and inspirational role in human spiritual history.

From the nature of the daimons of the Graeco-Roman world, the Zoroastrian Ahuras and Daevas, the seductive Lilith and mighty Lucifer, through to the Fallen Angels of the Bible and the Book of Enoch, and their children the Nephilim, we find that these powerful beings are harbingers of change.

In this anthology their magical natures are explored through the works of Renaissance magicians such as Dr John Dee and Edward Kelley, Dr Thomas Rudd and more recently Madeline Montalban, as well as in that of the experiences of the contributors themselves. The ceremonies and conjurations of grimoires such as the Key of Solomon, Goetia and Grimorium Verum are considered, as well as adaptations thereof and simpler, personal encounters.

You can see a full list of contributors and pre-order a copy from the Avalonia Books website.

* And me, of course.

  1. Great that your Green Butterfly piece is going to print! I think Avalonia’s forthcoming “Book of Treasure Spirits” is also going to be of special interest to us…!

  2. Hi,

    Just wanted to tell you that I loved your piece on the green butterfly. It was actually my favorite piece in Both Sides of Heaven.
