A black magic commune operating out of a storefront in New York's East Village . . . A high-fashion model's terrifyingly bizarre death in a luxury Manhattan apartment . . . A dignified doctor whose magnificent traveling companions are young women afflicted with a strange, terminal blood disease . . . When Doctor Owen Orient, a prominent New York physician, decided to renounce his practice and all the material comforts he had become accustomed to, his goal was to find a simpler, more meaningful existence for himself. But Orient was not like ordinary men. For years, he had been studying the secrets of the Occult and, though he sought simplicity now, found himself drawn more and more deeply into a horrifying series of events that challenged his scientific rationality, his occult powers, and the instincts and emotions that guided his manhood. The puzzle that began in a Manhattan black magic commune, eventually drew Orient to Tangier, Marrakech, and Rome, to a confrontation with an ancient ravening evil - a battle in which telepathy, telekinesis, and even sex become weapons in a frenzied struggle to the death - and beyond . . .

The career of towering, handsome actor Christopher Lee has stretched over half a century in every sort of film from comedy to horror. He has assumed such diverse roles as the Man With the Golden Gun, Frankenstein's monster, Fu Manchu, Sherlock Holmes, and Dr. Catheter (from Gremlins 2). From Corridor of Mirrors in 1948 to Star Wars: Episode II-Attack of the Clones in 2002, this reference book covers 166 of Lee's theatrical feature films in detail. Each entry provides all production information (including year of release, studio, running time, and location), full credits for cast and crew, a synopsis of the film, and a critical analysis of the film and Lee's involvement, with a detailed account of its making and commentary drawn from some thirty hours of interviews with Lee himself. Each entry also places the film within the context of Lee's career and discusses the director and other significant figures. Two appendices list Lee's television feature films and miniseries and Lee's short films, with brief credits and Lee's role in each. The work concludes with an afterword by Christopher Lee. Photographs from the actor's private collection are included.
Grand Grimoire of Infernal Pacts is a modern interpretation of Goetic Theurgy (self-transformation via demonic powers) from a Luciferian approach. The aim of Goetic Theurgy is to utilize spirits and primal forces to attain insight and fulfill short and long term goals. The myth of "selling your soul" to the devil is revealed to be nothing more than a fantasy created by fearful minds, the true nature of the infernal pact is to enter a covenant with powers perceived as dangerous, control them and guide them according to your will for spiritual and carnal insight and power. The Grand Grimoire has been adapted to modern Luciferian practice, removing the Judeo-Christian prayers and literally restoring the infernal gods and spirits to their ancient pagan origins devoid of the duality of good and evil. The rites of invocation and evocation, visualizing and writing a pact of agreement between the spirit and sorcerer to achieve goals are clearly presented.
Preserved in the Bavarian State Library in Munich is a manuscript that few scholars have noticed and that no one in modern times has treated with the seriousness it deserves. Forbidden Rites consists of an edition of this medieval Latin text with a full commentary, including detailed analysis of the text and its contents, discussion of the historical context, translation of representative sections of the text, and comparison with other necromantic texts of the late Middle Ages. The result is the most vivid and readable introduction to medieval magic now available. Like many medieval texts for the use of magicians, this handbook is a miscellany rather than a systematic treatise. It is exceptional, however, in the scope and variety of its contents—prayers and conjurations, rituals of sympathetic magic, procedures involving astral magic, a catalogue of spirits, lengthy ceremonies for consecrating a book of magic, and other materials. With more detail on particular experiments than the famous thirteenth-century Picatrix and more variety than the Thesaurus Necromantiae ascribed to Roger Bacon, the manual is one of the most interesting and important manuscripts of medieval magic that has yet come to light.
Is Satanic Ritual Abuse Fact Or Fantasy? : an Investigation
Author: Andrew Boyd
Publisher: Harper San Francisco
Category: Child abuse
Reports persist that children and adults are being systematically abused during rituals with satanic overtones. Opinion is divided on the truth of the matter, and the divisions are acrimonious. Sceptics argue that ritual abuse is an imported myth, believed by the gullible and propagated by the hysterical. For this investigation, Andrew Boyd has stepped beyond the current cases to interview professional carers across Britain. Between them they claim to be counselling more than 600 victims of ritual abuse. Their detailed account plus in-depth statements by survivors are shocking in the extreme. Andrew Boyd is the author of Broadcast Journalism: Techniques of Radio and TV News.
This book is the second edition of a work which in its first edition was titled, more provocatively, The Book of Black Magic and of Pacts. This book is an attempt to synthesize the procedures of all of the famous Grimoires. It draws on the Key of Solomon, the Grimorium Verum, the apocryphal Fourth Book of Cornelius Agrippa, and many others, including the famous Black Pullet, or Poulet Noir. While Waite is careful in his analysis of the various Grimoires, he treats the subject matter skeptically. The result is an unparalleled look at the details of ceremonial magic.
