Publications 2018: New authors and forthcoming releases
2018 has arrived and we are happy to share some very exciting news on forthcoming publications with you.
First, we would like to welcome two new authors to the Theion family:
we are honored that after already providing an insightful introduction to last year’s Cult of the Black Cube, one of Germany’s most infamous magicians, Frater U∴D∴, has chosen Theion Publishing to release one of the most anticipated books on magic in decades, his Introduction to Ice Magic (forthcoming in late 2018/early 2019). Frater U∴D∴ himself needs no introduction here as he is one of the most accomplished contemporary occultists, whose influence on the esoteric environment since the 1970ies is legendary. Many of his works on practical magic and sexual Gnosis have become required reading for initiates worldwide.
The Sepulcher Society is the next author we want to introduce this year. A hydra with many heads the Sepulcher Society is a closed European metaphysical working group dedicated to serious esoteric and academic research as well as magical practice. Theion Publishing is proud to act as the Society’s official publisher to bring their fascinating work to a wider audience.
The following three titles are scheduled for 2018:
by the Sepulcher Society
Our first release of 2018 will be Underworld, a study and manual of practical necromancy, compiled by the Sepulcher Society. The work provides detailed descriptions of multiple cultural models of the Underworld and its deities, how to engage such entities, as well as modern practical techniques of necromancy.
Underworld addresses the chthonic realm and its associated spiritual practices from the viewpoint of the contemporary practicing occultist and focuses its discussion on the intrusive aspect of the chthonian powers, which are not constrained to the world of the dead. Underworld details how the modern magician can enter the pathways of Hell to gain tremendous personal powers and advantages for his spiritual life.
Expect pre-order in late February.
by David Beth
2018 will also see the release of David Beth’s greatly anticipated Ophidian Hieroglyphs. This work on the theory and practice of a genuine Vodou Secret Society is the result of more than 25 years of study and initiation into Vodou and Afro-centric traditions. As a red sect, the Société Voudon Gnostique (S.V.G.) operates outside the laws of orthodox Vodou and fuses African, Haitian, Western Gnostic and vitalist transmissions and metaphysics into a fascinating system of antinomian magic and Gnosis. Ophidian Hieroglyphs will elaborate the initiatic cultus of the S.V.G. and the quest of the Bokor for the roots of Vodou and the source of true primordial power in the experience of the pandaemonic All.
Expect pre-order in summer 2018.
On the Cosmogonic Eros
by Ludwig Klages
Klages’s study of ecstasy, Eros and the primordial consciousness is certainly one of the most fascinating and evocative books on esoteric metaphysics of the 20th century. This work is a true milestone in the revival of a pagan Gnosis and has deeply influenced thinkers such as Walter Benjamin and Hermann Hesse who said that “in the pages of this book, On the Cosmogonic Eros, the nearly unspeakable has been forged into words.”
Expect pre-order in Fall 2018.
