Quality Vs. Expediency

Below is an email I received today from someone for whom I made a Venus Talisman in Gold Plate. Not a word has been changed, and the email is copy and pasted directly from outlook. For those who wonder why my talismans take longer to create and consecrate than the mass market crap you might buy elsewhere or from others who lack the skill, interest or ability to make something that WORKS, read the email below and understand the difference. I offer only the best and most effective - if you want something delivered in a couple of days that will be effective only in lightening your wallet, go somewhere else. 

The Talisman In Question:

The Email:

I have had it about a week now and I've already seen it take effect. The first time I put it on, as I was leaving my house I encountered my voluptuous blonde neighbor right outside. I maybe run into her on average once every couple months and we've never said more than a few neighborly words to each other. This time we talked about our respective dogs, made introductions and I was on my way. This isn't a girl I have romantic interest in (ok, maybe some carnal curiosity), but clearly the talisman was doing its thing.
And yesterday I had an exchange with a gorgeous young woman on the subway, which was thrilling. She was a real head turner and she was turning her head for me. That kind of thing never happens to me in Chicago. The women here are very guarded out in public. I lived in NYC as a younger man and one of my favorite things about that time and place were the handful of instances I'd meet a beautiful woman on the train. To have something like that happen again after so many years was an incredible pleasure. I am elated that your talisman can potentially enable those kinds of interactions as I go about my day. It even seems as if it has had an effect on my appearance. I'm 39, and while I don't consider myself old, I do feel that I am no longer young. Since wearing the talisman I find that I have more of a glow when I look in the mirror. My hair seems healthier. My face less haggard. I seem fresher and more vibrant.  
I also see that I have to be careful about wearing it around the women in my life who I do not have any attraction towards, as it clearly works on them too.
Your work is miraculous and I look forward to your new store opening so that I can commission another metal piece.
Thank you again

Nephilim Press Presents: The Book of Smokeless Fire

The Book of Smokeless Fire

By S. Ben Qayin

"The work that is being presented in “The Book of Smokeless Fire” is based on a very little known and overlooked Solomonic text simply known as “Miscelaneo de Salomon”, which amazingly mirrors that of Lovecraft’s, “Necronomicon” both in content and history. It is an ancient and forbidden Arabian manuscript, that seems was later evolved into the Greek “Goetia” and gives the earliest known account of King Solomon and his binding of the seventy-two sinister Djinn he sealed away in the infamous brass container.
In “The Book of Smokeless Fire”, the ancient manuscript has now been reworked into a completely new system, utilizing revolutionary evocation technology, to again call upon the ancient and destructive Djinn, whose names have been concealed for centuries…"
Author S. Ben Qayin has outdone himself with this stunning interpretation and cohesive reworking of a long lost magickal discipline. The Book of Smokeless Fire is over 190 pages of pure magickal knowledge laid out in an easy to read format that really flows. With no fluff, filler, and no nonsense, Qayin manages to take what some have dabbled in and written about in the past and open it up into a fully workable system of magick.

SOMA Webinar TONIGHT - The Holy Guardian Angel, w/ MC, RO, Jason Miller, & Aaron Leitch

     As those of my readers who also follow The Society of Magical Artists and their series of unique and enlightening webinars (And if you don't, you certainly SHOULD) will have already heard, this evening promises to be one to remember. As part of their series of free lectures with some of the day's most innovative and brilliant magickal minds, tonight Rufus Opus, Jason Miller, Aaron Leitch, myself, (and hopefully the good brother Ashen Chassan, if he's able to rearrange his schedule!) will be participating in a panel discussion and Q&A on


     Yes, beloved readers, The Holy Guardian Angel, one of the most mysterious, enigmatic and controversial subjects in Magick and Occultism, and also the subject of the recently released (and nearly sold out!) anthology which brought together nearly a dozen of the best in the game to share their experiences and views, will be tonight's topic of discussion. Friends, I needn't tell you this will not be your average webinar. By some chain of preordained celestial events set in motion by the gods (Or possibly by the patience and persistence of Mr. S.O.M.A. himself, Jeffrey Lee Contreras), tonight's session will involve not one, but a handful of your favorite authors, if I may be so bold as to assume. That's right, someone, somewhere, thought locking Rufus, Jason, Aaron, Bryan and I in a room together to talk Magick would be a splendid idea (Metaphorically, of course. I've just eaten Mexican and lord knows anyone ACTUALLY locked in a room with me this evening would likely assume we'd inadvertently evoked the Grand Demon Gassifer)

     So cancel your plans, call of your date, lock yourself in your home office in front of your computer or your living room with your tablet, and at 9pm Eastern Time (8pm Central), open your copy of The Holy Guardian Angel* and click on this link:

     *What's that you say? You don't HAVE a copy of The Holy Guardian Angel? You haven't ordered one yet? Clearly you've taken leave of your senses and are in need of medical help. I hereby prescribe a visit to Nephilim's Website to remedy this ailment at once.
