The Book of Sitra Achra: A Grimoire of the Dragons of the Other Side, one of the most highly anticipated releases of 2013, has finally been released, and it has not disappointed! This is the most detailed exploration of the qliphoth, since Kenneth Grant’s Nightside of Eden was published. Since then, many have tried to explore the sunken zone of Daath, and its dark, awe-inspiring spheres, and make sense of the labyrinthine network of tunnels, paths, fractures & rhizomes. Many have attempted to communicate with the denizens of these lost & forgotten realms. Some have had some success, but most have failed dismally! The past few years have seen a great awakening of interest in the qliphoth, with many books & journals published, by authors claiming to have first hand experience – unfortunately, most of what I have seen, is either poorly written fiction, or simply delusional! But at last, there is a real Qliphothic Grimoire, which looks promising. The Book of Sitra Achra contains 309 pages devoted to cataloguing the qliphoth, mapping out the Sitra Achra, and the Tree of Death, as well as other realms on the Other Side. This is not easy material to digest, and I would not recommend this to novices, at all. But those who are adept at working magic & sorcery, and have a serious interest in the qliphoth, Daath, etc, should find in this grimoire, a veritable treasure trove!
The Book of Sitra Achra is a complete grimoire, so you do not need to have read Liber Falxifer or Liber Falxifer II, to make sense of it, however, reading these books will help to shed dark light, on some of the complex structures that will be encountered in Sitra Achra. In particular, I would highly recommend reading Liber Falxifer II, as it reveals the mythos, inner-teachings & ritual practices of the Qayinitic tradition, as practiced by an order Templum Falcis Cruentis (Temple of the Black Light or TOTBL). Of course, those who feel they are ready to jump in – by all means, dive in, head first!

(The Hidden Temple Ov The Blackened Serpent)
“Within the darkness of the Abyss, lies the whispered chant of the Blackened Serpent…”
Through the sacrifice of blood and libations, the Blackened Serpent is called forth to guide the Initiate deep within themselves, to descend into the spiraling labyrinths of primordial sub-consciousness only discovered within the power zones of Chaos itself. The Serpent speaks of ancient wisdom through its writhing dance of ancestral rites…rites laced with carnal lust and shattered sanity.
This transcendence of limitation, connects the Black Magician with the concealed regions of the Astral Plane, where the psyche is transformed into a representation of the Blackened Serpent itself, thus self sustaining through the creation of a universe in the deepest recesses of the human mind. At the core of this sinister process, the Black Magician begins to crystallize and perceive his own true essence, which is in itself, the center of the inextinguishable Black Flame of Chaos manifest…
It is by true Intent alone, that the Initiate is able to traverse the hardened and lonesome path of illumination that lies in still darkness. It is by sheer determination and want of truth that empowers the Black Magician to explore the inner realms of self, which lie inside the mind and spirit.
Within this dark anthology, one will find a collection of the many teachings of the Blackened Serpent, as can only be told by true practitioners of the LHP. These teachings take many forms, each unique to the Black Magician revealing their own hard and personal lesson…on the winding path of Midnight’s Serpent…

This book uses academic tools to uncover the techniques which were actually used by Graeco-Egyptian magicians. This book will really strengthen your understanding of magic and its roots. After reading it magic will no longer be something to theorise about, but a real practice, a real interaction with divinities, daimones, spirits and even the dead, using evocation, invocation, skrying, dream techniques, talismans, amulets, defixiones, sacrifice and spirit offerings, ensouling magical statues and consecrating rings. It also explains the necessary protection for the magician, the circle and phylacteries.
Magical objectives include love (by attraction, compulsion, insomnia and ‘love’s leash’), health, invisibility, foreknowledge and memory. There are detailed sections on bowl and lamp skrying, the sending of dreams, encountering a god, and the Mystery rites for fellowship with the gods. First steps include the invocation of the paredros, the daimon assistant and the correct purity and fasting procedures. Encounter Thesallos of Tralles who persuaded an Egyptian priest to manifest a god for him, and the techniques that his Egyptian priest used to do this.
Egypt was at the heart of magic, and the Graeco-Egyptian papyri are the clearest and most extensive documentation of some of its earliest methods. These papyri were the handbooks of practicing magicians who lived during the first five centuries of this era. But attempting to read the Graeco-Egyptian magical papyri in Hans Dieter Betz’s English translation The Greek Magical Papyri in Translation is a daunting task, as they seem to be in no particular order (except for papyrus number). Furthermore the papyri are a mixture of many different techniques, with minor snippets mixed in with serious and long invocations, many without the basic instructions needed to perform these rites.
Stephen Skinner discovered that in the original Greek, then they have a perfectly logical structure, as the scribes have in most cases used a headword to indicate what kind of rite was involved. This headword has however mostly been lost in translation. What Stephen Skinner has done here is to separate and tabulate each of the 40+ techniques used by Graeco-Egyptian magicians, throwing an enormous amount of light on these very practical texts. In many cases the translator has taken the easy way out and just used words like ‘spell’ or ‘charm’ to translate dozens of different technical words which are necessary for understanding exactly what is going on. Skinner has rectified this by extracting each of these specialist Greek terms for different magical procedures and, showing what they really mean, and has divided up the papyri into its constituent methods, so that the reader is directed to the specific passages relevant to his interest. The result is more than a guide to the papyri, it is a complete survey and explanation of the functioning of the types of Graeco-Egyptian magic, often noting where such techniques appear again in the later grimoires. If you want to understand Graeco-Egyptian magic, this is where you should start.

Liber Lunae is a composite text containing three major sections:
The Mansions of the Moon, describing the operations of the 28 constellations of the lunar zodiac, their magical virtues and their names.
The Hours of the Day and Night, describing the operations of the 12 hours of the day and the 12 hours of the night, their names, virtues, talismanic images, and angels to invoke.
The Figures of the Planets, describing each planet’s magic square, virtue, suffumigation, magical directions, and inscription.
Liber Lunae is fully transcribed from a sixteenth-century English manuscript, annotated, edited, and supplemented by modernized English versions of ‘The Hours of the Day and Night’, ‘The Figures of the Planets’, and ‘The Mansions of the Moon’, combining both Liber Lunae and Sepher ha-Levanah.
Transcriptions of related material on talismanic images and on the virtues of different hours and their names from other sections of Sloane MS 3826 are also included. The full introduction places the material contained in Liber Lunae into the general scheme of magical literature.
This volume also features a facsimile of A. W. Greenup’s 1912 edition of Sepher ha-Levanah, a Hebrew version of Liber Lunae material. A full English translation of Sepher ha-Levanah prepared by Calanit Nachshon is included.

Sepher Raziel – also called Liber Salomonis – is a full grimoire in the Solomonic tradition from a rare sixteenth century English manuscript. It is completely different from the Sepher Raziel ha-Melakh published by Steve Savedow, and is the oldest grimoire so far published in the Sourceworks of Ceremonial Magic series, and shows clear signs of it Hebrew and Greek roots, quoting both Solomon and Hermes.
It contains seven treatises:
Clavis, concerned with astrology and its use in magic, with precise interactions between planets, Signs, and Houses;
Ala, outlining the magical virtues of stones, herbs, and animals;
Tractatus Thymiamatus, which deals with incense, and perfumes used in the Art;
Treatise of Times detailing the correct hours of the day for each operation;
Treatise on Preparations on ritual purity, and abstinence;
Samaim, on the different heavens and their angels; and finally,
Semiforas or a Book of Names and their virtues and properties, being seven semiforas attributed to Adam and seven semiforas attributed to Moses.
The Sepher Raziel text is given in two forms: a literal transcription with no changes in spelling or wording, and a full modern annotated English version.
This volume also includes a foreword which offers an overview of Raziel manuscripts, which represent a number of independent traditions, an essay on the literature of Solomonic magic in English, an introduction to the Sepher Raziel manuscript itself, an appendix on incense names, botanical names and identification, a list of printed notices and manuscript sources of Sepher Raziel, and a full bibliography of printed works on Solomonic magic and items of related interest.

Foreword by Stephen Skinner
This is the true ancestor of the Key of Solomon. Containing the full translation of the Hygromanteia. This book is sometimes called the Hygromanteia, and this book has hidden behind the mistaken idea that all of it is a work on water divination, a scholarly mistake that has hidden the true value of this book for centuries. Throughout history thousands of people have been fascinated by the grimoire the Key of Solomon. This is the original Greek book of magic that was the source of the Key of Solomon, and in turn the ancestor of most of the grimoire-based ceremonial magic practiced in Europe and the US today.
This is a ground-breaking work. For the first time (outside of a handful of pages in academic works) the full Greek original of the Key of Solomon appears in English.
Contrary to popular opinion the Key of Solomon was not translated from a Hebrew original. During the gradual decline and fall of the Byzantine Empire, this precious text, along with many others, was taken to Italy. This may even have happened when Constantinople was sacked in 1453. It is quite likely that it was taken to Venice, where parts of it were translated into Latin and Italian.
Abridged Latin copies entitled the Clavicula Salomonis circulated in Europe, going through many changes, languages and versions to become the Key of Solomon as we know it (some of those manuscripts are published as Volume IV of the present series). Now for the first time you can read the whole text (large portions of which were left out of the Latin translations).
Crystal Gazing is a facsimile of an original manuscript by Northcote W. Thomas, a prominent anthropologist, who did a very serious study on crystal gazing and scrying techniques in use all over the world. Thomas is able to present the information in an easy to read manner that takes all of the guesswork out of the processes in use throughout the book.
The Nephilim Press edition contains a full transcription of the original text and includes all of the images that are often omitted from later editions. “The Speculum and how to use it, Incantations and Calls, Egyptian Scrying, Experiments, Evidential Cases, and a Comprehensive Bibliography,” are just some of the chapters in this work that make it such a valuable reference. Crystal Gazing is the perfect companion to Gateways Through Stone and Circle as It contains a wealth of information on the process of Scrying and the use of a “SCRYER” as well as the Speculum and ritual hardware. This is a fantastic reference for anyone who is experimenting with Frater Ashen Chassans techniques and its study will greatly aid the practitioner in making serious progress with his experiments.
