Vampire Nation

Postby The Madame X » Fri Nov 21, 2008 4:03 pm

I recently acquired and just finished reading Vampire Nation by Arlene Russo.
Its not a new book, its been out in the UK since 2005 but was only released in the US this year.
The result is that the content will seem dated, redundant and boring to anyone that has read anything like the Codex, V or any of the Sanguinarium books. But there are some morsels of information that is seldom found in other books. Like interesting background on the foundation and disintegration of some of the older UK societies as well as some interesting tidbits on Prince Charles, Queen Victoria and Robin Hood.
But the best surprise for me was coming across several areas that featured our very own Bholanath and much detailed mention of his Order of the Crimson Tongues...which is now unfortunately defunct.

While not a particularly innovative or ground-braking book, it is now a prized book in my collection. And I do recommend you get it.

And you know... I expect all of you to tell me if you are mentioned or included in any book or magazine, so that I can add it to my collection.

*Hands-On Chaos Magic*
Reality Manipulation through the Ovayki Current
by Andrieh Vitimus

*The Serpent and the Eagle*
An Introduction to the Elder Runic Tradition
by Chris Travers

-----------------------------------------------------------------
*Hands-On Chaos Magic*
Reality Manipulation through the Ovayki Current
by Andrieh Vitimus

This irreverent guide to chaos magic emphasizes experimentation and finding out what works best for you. Andrieh Vitimus presents a revolutionary hands-on course of study for the average Jane or Joe. Vitimus banishes the severe tone of other esoteric orders, offering an accessible and practical approach that makes it easier to perform successful chaos magic that is uniquely your own.


"In the colorful (and sometimes absurd) subculture of magicians, wannabe magicians, and armchair wizards, Andrieh Vitimus is the real deal. You don't just attend his lectures and workshops, you practice honest-to-gods, in-your-face magic. Hands-On Chaos Magic, is just what it says, and the next best thing to working with the master himself.
"
—Lon Milo DuQuette, author of The Magick of Aleister Crowley

"Andrieh Vitimus's Hands-On Chaos Magic: Reality Manipulation Through the Ovayki Current, is clearly the work of an experienced magician. This practice-based book covers all the main aspects of practical Chaos Magic, and is underpinned with a sound basis of theory and a critique of the culture in which the magician is embedded. Vitimus also engages with the contentious issues of trance and identity, delivering a well-considered and thorough contribution to the Chaos Magic current.
"
—Dave Lee, author of Chaotopia


*The Serpent and the Eagle*
An Introduction to the Elder Runic Tradition
by Chris Travers

The Serpent and the Eagle is the most transparent and accessible book on Runes available today. By exploring the rich lore from Germanic mythical sources as well as comparative studies, this work shines light on the Runes like never before.


The first part of this book is a basic overview of most important elements of Germanic cosmology. In this work, the structure of the World Tree, space, time, and social order are explored in detail as they relate to the Runes.


The second part explores the structure and meaning of the Elder Futhark using a variety of methods. The meanings of the Runes are made accessible and enough information is provided to help the seeker explore this subject further.


The third part of this book explores practice. Here one will learn how to explore the Runes using meditation, get answers to questions using divination, and use the Runes to create changes in your life. Anyone interested in Runes, whether a novice or an advanced student, will find a wealth of information and insight in this book.


IOT Books says, "The Serpent and the Eagle is an excellent and insightful guide to the Elder Futhark. Penned with eloquence and sagacity, this book will supplement the knowledge base of many experienced runesters, while providing an extremely thorough foundation for the beginner. *Highly recommended*.
"

Author Biography: With over fifteen years of Runic and occult experience, Chris Travers is a Master in the Rune-Gild. He has studied history at The Evergreen State College, and resides in Washington State.

I have to order it as no one around this area has it readily available to purchase in the stores. =(
I received some kind of email asking me to take a survey a while back for the research of a project they wanted to use in a book. To be honest it was so long ago and I never received any response from it ever again.

I'll let you know what I find out.

Lately I have been in an ancient civilizations, their unsolved mysteries and unexplained parallels.

I have found myself re-reading my book In Search of Ancient Mysteries by Alan and Sally Landsburg ... but its a 1974 publishing and so much has happened since. I'm thinking its time to purchase another book on the subject.
I have been looking at a book called The Gold of the Gods, but that is also dated...
I just discovered a book published just last year, but it may be too biased called 'The Ancient Alien Question: A New Inquiry Into the Existence, Evidence, and Influence of Ancient Visitors' by Philip Coppens. I guess there are many on the subject, I would love to find one that is not quite so biased... also looking at 'History is Wrong' by Erich von Daniken 2009 publishing

Has anyone has read any of these books? Maybe you might like to suggest one on the topic?

Is this the best recommended Astral Travel book? In other words does it teach efficacious methods to achieve through one's hard work to Astral Travel? >The Astral Projection Workbook, J.H. Brennan

Thank you.
