Medieval Mysteries by Karen Ralls jpeg Ibis Press

The Hitler Legacy
The Nazi Cult in Diaspora: How it was Organized, How it was Funded, and Why it Remains a Threat to Global Security in the Age of Terrorism

Meticulously researched—from both archival material and declassified intelligence agency files, to personal interviews and investigations undertaken in Asia, Europe and Latin America—The Hitler Legacy is the story of how the mistakes of the twentieth century have come home to roost in the twenty-first. The failure of American, British and Soviet intelligence agencies to hunt down Nazi war criminals and disrupt their networks meant that we were unprepared when a similar enemy decided to use the same structures to prosecute their campaigns. Both the Nazi and jihadist networks are composed of non-state actors involved in asymmetrical warfare against identical enemies. Both are fueled by ideologies that combine apocalyptic fanaticism and anti-Semitism with a rabid hatred of Western "decadence."

The Angel and The Abyss
The Inward Journey, Books II & III
J. Daniel Gunther

In this companion to Initiation in the Aeon of the Child, author J. Daniel Gunther provides detailed and cohesive analysis of the two major spiritual crises in the career of the aspirant in the Aeon of the Child—the Knowledge & Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel and the Crossing the Abyss between the divine realms and the human. Expounding on the sublime Formulas of Initiation confronting those who would aspire to these Mysteries, the author draws deeply from Jungian psychology, world mythology and religion, and the doctrines of the classic Mystery traditions, explaining how the revelations of Thelema apply to the individual.

The author is a longtime member of A∴A∴, the teaching Order established by Aleister Crowle. Gunther is considered one of the foremost authorities in the field, and serves on the editorial board of The Equinox, and as a consultant and advisor for numerous occult publications. He is the author of Inititaition in the Aeon of the Child.

Soviet Spies, Nazi Priests, and the Disappearance of Adolf Hitler
Peter Levenda

Ratline is the documented history of the Nazi escape routes, the mechanisms by which thousands of war criminals fled to the remotest parts of the globe. It is the story of how the Soviets lied about Hitler’s death and continued to lie and change their story for decades to come. It is the story of a man who died quietly in Indonesia in January of 1970 ... and of how a body was dug up from a German military base four months later and cremated.

How did the Soviet KGB, the Catholic Church, and government agencies around the world collaborate in the disappearance of Adolph Hitler—the world’s most mysterious, monstrous, and wanted fugitive?

Ratline raises questions ... but more than anything else—in a time of citizen distrust of institutions in Europe, America and Asia— it is a book that demands answers.

Initiation in the Aeon of the Child by J. Daniel Gunther paperback jpeg Ibis Press

Inititiation in the Aeon of the Child (Now in Paperback)
The Inward Journey Book I
J. Daniel Gunther

In 1904, The Book of the Law declared the advent of a new period in the course of human history-- The Aeon of Horus, or Aeon of the Child. The doctrine codified in the Book of the Law and the numerous other Holy Books known as Thelema revealed Aleister Crowley as the Prophet of the new Aeon.

In this ground-breaking book, author J. Daniel Gunther provides a penetrating and cohesive analysis of the spiritual doctrine underlying and informing the Aeon of the Child, and the sublime formulas of Initiation encountered by those who would probe its mysteries. Drawing on more than 30 years of experience as a student and teacher within the Order of the A.·. A.·. the author examines the doctrinal thread of Thelema in its historical, religious, and practical context.

The Dark Lord
H.P. Lovecraft, Kenneth Grant, and the Typhonian Tradition in Magic
Peter Levenda

One of the most famous—yet least understood—manifestations of Thelemic thought has been the works of Kenneth Grant, the British occultist and one-time intimate of Aleister Crowley, who discovered a hidden world within the primary source materials of Crowley’s Aeon of Horus. Using complementary texts from such disparate authors as H.P. Lovecraft, Jack Parsons, Austin Osman Spare, and Charles Stansfeld Jones (“Frater Achad”), Grant formulated a system of magic that expanded upon that delineated in the rituals of the OTO: a system that included elements of Tantra, of Voudon, and in particular that of the Schlangekraft recension of the Necronomicon, all woven together in a dark tapestry of power and illumination.

When the Dragon Wore the Crown by Don Cerow jpeg Ibis Press

When the Dragon Wore the Crown
Center and Circle
Don Cerow

When our ancestors gazed upon the skies thousands of years ago they looked up into the center of Creation and saw a mighty Dragon, a great celestial serpent with wings circling ceaselessly above them, night after night, century after century. When the Dragon Wore the Crown is a ground breaking book that covers a period of over six thousand years, focusing on what astrologers would call the Ages of Gemini, Taurus and Aries and taking us through the period of classical astronomy with the Greeks and Romans (approx. 7000 BC–200 AD). When the Dragon Wore the Crown opens and closes with the Chinese mythological tradition and touches on Sumerian, Babylonian, Phoenician, Hindu, Norse, Native American and even Mayan myths, weaving together many of their celestial serpentine similarities.
