On several occasions I have been published or recorded as saying that aside from the well known Grimoires we all know and love there is a potential plethora of unknown manuscripts that could represent significant additions to the corpus sitting in one library or another gathering dust, and that it is a damned shame the majority of them will never grace our shelves. The Book of Oberon is one that was spared that fate, having been rescued from ignominious demise amongst other unwanted volumes by Joe Peterson, Dan Harms and James Clark. The Book of Oberon stands apart from its more famous counterparts in that it takes the form of a working magician's personal Grimoire. Instead of instructions for performing a set of invocations that, together, constitute the corpus of the Grimoire, The Book of Oberon closely resembles something done by Hockley or Dr. Rudd; that is, a textbook comprised of a number of rites collected from various sources for specific gains & results. Don't allow that description to fool you though - far from the "Books of Shadows" which take similar shape and contain such venerable magicks as "Pierce the eye of a worm and say blagojevich 24 times at midnight whilst eating taco bell", The Book of Oberson is VERY much a Grimoire - Summoning the denizens of the unknown, previously unseen seals and talismans, oracions as beautiful and powerful as any of Solomonic origin and all.
That's all folk's! Well, for now anyway. There are 3 more books I need to review, and 2 more yet to read and review after that, but today's free time has come to an end and other, offline, obligations call. The next review will be a more in depth one on Stephen Skinner's Techniques of Graeco-Egyptian Magic which, in my eyes, represents the most important work in 10 years.

I got a call moments ago from Herman who Nephilim sold off all their discounted titles to asking me if I could post this advertisement as I did for the last batch. Nephilim recently completed their yearly inventory, and after accounting for everything they sold him a batch of 54 misc titles, all of which are now being offered to the public. He has:
10 Copies "The Book of Smokeless Fire" By S. Ben Qayin
5 Copies "Sabbatica" By Edgar Kerval
3 Copies - "The Keys of Ocat" By S. Connolly
1 Copy - Qlipoth
1 Copy - Grimoire of Tiamat By Asenath Mason
6 Copies - Seven Sphers By Rufus Opus
The rest will be listed on Saturday
Anyone interested please email HERMAN, not me and not Nephilim. Last time we posted about this I got a couple dozen emails and Nephilim got a hundred - These are available ONLY through:
See the pictures below for examples of the condition these are in. Most are perfect or with imperceptible flaws as shown in the book on the bottom, others have scuffing to the covers as shown on the top
Copies of Abrasax in full leather, the deluxe edition of Ocat and a couple of Nephilim's uber-fine editions are also available

Jason's overwhelming popularity broke it. Well, kinda. That email address was created yesterday specifically to handle the sale of these scratch & dent books, and once Jason posted it online several dozen emails came in at once. So between the incoming emails and outgoing replies, Yahoo's anti-spam filter said "Whooooa, kill this account!"
Those who sent emails prior to 10am Eastern time will have received replies already including instructions for sending payment, HOWEVER after 10am access to that account has been restricted, so please begin using nephilimseconds(at)outlook.com or just
*Update - Herman has informed me that he had replied to ALL emails that were in the inbox up until the account was blocked, so if you received an email with payment insftructions you can go right ahead and use whatever instructions were provided in the email. If you sent an email and have not received a reply, you need to write to the new email address or he wont see it

A couple of months back I began taking on students for an apprenticeship course which I had planned and begun in a Beta testing stage, allowing me to begin teaching deserving, earnest and worthy aspirants while designing the structure of the course.
As the program has now been fully developed, the bugs worked out and the first batch of students are already beginning to experience growth and success, I am ready to open the doors to another 6 apprentices.
This second group will have the benefit of coming in now, after the trial run wherein the difficulties were worked out and my teaching methods were perfected, and will therefore be able to begin immediately with no "growing pains"
Those coming aboard will have an introductory skype meeting immediately, including a tarot reading to discern if there are any obstacles to your participation and success. (For each new student I do a rite to remove all hindrances and obstacles that would impede them). Following the reading is a brief interview, and subsequently your first written lesson and a rite to be performed daily. Skype meetings are helf on Weds and Fridays and any & all students having studied the previous lessons or experienced anything of note they'd like to discuss, or for which they need instruction are able to meet with me on those days anytime between 9 and 4, or outside those hours by appointment.
This course is Alpha to Omega, inclusive of all the basics and taking you through every field of Magick with which I am proficient, and culminating in VERITABLE Evocation. The first group has thus far walked this path:
Lesson 1 - Meditation for Ceremonial Magick
Lesson 2 - Lucid Dreaming and Magick Therein
*Homework - identify 3 entities you'd like to work with, describe the reasons why, any difficulties you foresee and benefits you'd expect.
Lesson 3 - Astral Separation
*Invocation of Isis for her blessings in this pursuit
Lesson 4 - Techniques For Achieving Astral Travel "At Will"
*Calling of the Sevenths introduced to daily routine
Lesson 5 - Evocation in Theory
Lesson 6 - Intro to Planetary Magick
*Apprentices use divination to select a planet, formulate a rite based on my instructions, I review and ALL willing students perform, including myself.
Those who are interested in this program and the unique educational opportunity it presents, please email me using the contact me link above. This is unfortunately not a free course, however any of the students can attest that the tuition will fit any budget

At present I have a few tarot decks and some misc household electronics up, but will be putting up a dozen paperbacks throughout the week as well as a couple items from an order that was canceled (a Solomonic Ring and a Talisman). I am thinking of also doing a weekly Tarot reading there as well as putting my older eBooks up rather than having to send those out manually, and so you all can pick them up without opening the wallet.
To sign up, use this link so I get some extra credit for sending you and you get a few hundred to start.
