taramorganataramorgana Tara Morgana
text: Paul Holman - photography: Paul Lambert
Tara Morgana is a work of pure magical writing. The title comes from the fusion of the Tibetan devi with Morgan Le Fay who is pursued as a mirage throughout this haunting text. Part magical diary, part dreamscape, part Situationist dérive through the landscape, Tara Morgana is an enigmatic record of ritual practice. This is not a book about magic, rather, it is a magical book, splintered by a sequence of photographic images: glimpsed spirit portraits, apparitions captured in the play and decay of light, giving it an otherworldly aspect. Tara Morgana is a truly esoteric and numinous text, a beautifully realised work that leads us on two parallel journeys of poetry and image, through the world and work of living magical artists.

testamentofcypriantestamentofcyprian The Testament of Cyprian the Mage
Jake Stratton-Kent
This is the final work in Stratton-Kent's acclaimed Encyclopaedia Goetica series. The Testament of Cyprian the Mage is an ambitious and far-seeing work, addressing two ends of the magical spectrum: the Testament of Solomon and a version of the Iberian Book of Saint Cyprian. This work draws upon these texts to create a clear understanding of the practice of grimoire magic, not as a discrete or degenerate subset of ceremonial magic, but one which is integrated with folk magic and witchcraft. In particular we discover a shared dramatis personae, the infernal pact, and a common terrain of Wild Hunt and Sabbat. A major acheivement.

witchcraft Exu Apocalyptic Witchcraft
Peter Grey
Apocalyptic Witchcraft gives a compelling and profound account of the Sabbat and Wild Hunt as living experiences. These are the core of our ritual practice. Dream, lunar and critically menstrual magic are explored as a path to this knowledge. The wolf, the Devil, and the Goddess of Witchcraft are then encountered in a landscape that ultimately reveals the witch to her or himself. These are not separate threads, but arise from a deep mythic structure and are woven together into a single unifying vision.

blood of the earth blood of the earth The Blood of the Earth: An Essay on Magic and Peak Oil
John Michael Greer
The Blood of the Earth is a challenging and radical book. It fuses hard physical science with an adept’s understanding of magic. It is a lucid, articulate and devastating piece of writing. You could call it a polemic, you could call it a prophetic work, but it is essential reading for the modern magician as Empires fall. .
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.
Clearly written and accessible, The Blood of the Earth is part of the fusion of deep ecology and deep paganism which is equally relevant to heathen, druid, magician and witch. An hermetic tour de force.

Geosophia - The Argo of Magic
Encyclopaedia Goetica volume ii: from the Greeks to the Grimoires
Jake Stratton-Kent
This is Stratton-Kent's masterpiece, tracing the development of magic from the Greeks to the grimoires, it lays bare the chthonic roots of ritual. By exposing the necromantic origins of much of modern magic we are able to reconnect with the source of our ritual tradition. There is a continuity of practice in the West which encompasses the pre-Olympian cults of Dionysus and Cybele, is found in the Greek Magical Papyri and Picatrix and flows into the grimoires. Rather than a muddle of superstition, the grimoire tradition is revealed as the living descendant of the ancient practices of the Goes. A groundbreaking work.

This is magick attuned to the zeitgeist.

Diabolical
Various
The grimoire tradition is being reinvigorated in the living practice of the carcists, magicians and sorcerors who dare to work with these books. Those of us who do this work, regardless of whether we trepass amongst the angels or daemons, are often slandered as diabolical. our books are also regarded as diabolical, being incomprehensible, demonic and without spiritual or practical value. We throw this back at our accusers by demonstrating that these books are more complex than black and white theology allows, and as repositories of forbidden knowledge are worth their weight in gold.
