When I first began this blog some time ago, one of the first posts I wrote included the basic outline of a ritual with which I have enjoyed a good deal of success. Following my introduction of that rite I shared further pieces of the puzzle that constitutes the corpus from which it was drawn in my contributions to Hadean's Conjure Codex as well as another anthology, and here on my blog. After each of these articles were published, I received a plethora of email reporting the successes readers had experienced in experimentation with the workings as I provided them, and asking when I would be releasing the "full volume on this strain of magick" I had promised in Conjure Codex.
Today, nearly two years after my first public indication that a full length work on this system of magick was in the pipeline, I am pleased to report that it nears completion.
On behalf of myself and the publisher with whom I have partnered on this project, Nephilim Press, I am proud to announce
This work will manifest in the form of a Grimoire in the truest sense of the word, and remains faithful to the original Magick of the period between 100BCE and the 11th Century. The Magickal system esposed by our ancient predecessors of this period was both fully developed and comprehensive; so vast was this system that the widely known PGM was "but a small portion of the whole". The present work, to which I have given the title "The Book of Abrasax, A Grimoire of The Hidden Gods" represents an all inclusive and fully developed system of Magick in and of itself, offering instruction for several dozen complete rites, restored from fragmented and incomplete sources, carefully reassembled as pieces of a puzzle and faithful to their original forms, separated by intent of the working. With a few exceptions, the rites you will find herein have never been published in any Magickal text.
Stay tuned here and on the Nephilim website and Facebook page for further details, but expect to see this book in 2012.
