Apologies and New Releases

So, I found the question of high prices for occult works so interesting that I wrote up a few long pieces on them.  Which I then lost in an iPhone deletion.  So, that’s what I’ve been working on.

In the meantime, a few new exciting releases!

First, from Nephilim Press, we have Humberto Maggi’s The Book of St. Cyprian.  I haven’t had much of a chance to examine it, but it appears to take material from many different works – mainly the early (pseudo-)autobiographical texts attributed to the saint, as well as the translations of sections from the Spanish and Portuguese grimoire traditions – and assembles it into a composite edition.  Given that it’s 600+ pages, I might not get to a full review any time soon, but I wanted to make sure you knew about it.

Enodia is re-issuing the Magia naturalis et innaturalis as a hardback, with additional notes and corrections.  I believe the 20% discount for the first orders is gone, but signed copies will still be available if you order quickly.

  1. “Nephilim Press” sounds rarher creationist.
    Have read a St. Cyprian from Southron Jutland – all oneiromancy & herbal remedies. Nice to hear that there are versions that actually refer to the saint.

  2. Your edition of The Long Lost Friend was mentioned as part of Ken Hite’s latest book haul on the Ken and Robin Talk About Stuff podcast.

  3. I’m definitely interested in the topic of cost for occult publications. Obviously they are going to be small print runs, and some are hand bound in leather, etc which would drive up costs significantly, but even compared to other genres of limited popular appeal they do seem to trend to the expensive. And go out of print quickly.
