After being wrongfully accused of deicide by his angelic brethren, the Prince of Hell undertook an epic quest through the cosmos to clear his name. Now he wants nothing more than to retire to his Los Angeles club, Ex Lux, and drown the worldÕs sorrows one drink at a time. With the throne of Heaven still vacant, archangels are turning on each other in an effort to seize their absent FatherÕs crown. And since the Lightbringer has no desire to revisit his former kingdom, a vicious power struggle has erupted in the infernal realm, as well. Caught between chaos above and below, Earth has never been more vulnerable. In order to keep his terrestrial retreat safe from collateral damage, Lucifer must reluctantly rejoin the fight for control over Creation. But as the battle rages, the aftershocks from his FatherÕs demise are growing strongersh and making it clear that some fates really are worse than death. The saga of the worldÕs original antihero reaches new heights (and depths) in LUCIFER VOL. 2: FATHER LUCIFER, collecting issues #7-12 of the acclaimed series from author Holly Black (The Spiderwick Chronicles) and artist Lee Garbett (Loki).

Eve Renner is teruggekeerd naar New Orleans om het verleden te vergeten. Maar daar krijgt ze geen kans voor, want er begint een nieuwe reeks moorden. De slachtoffers zijn ritueel om het leven gebracht en er zijn nummers op hun lichaam getatoeëerd. Er bestaat geen verband tussen de slachtoffers, op één na: het ziekenhuis van Our Lady of Virtues, de psychiatrische inrichting die eens het toneel was van onbeschrijfelijke waanzin. Als kind was het een tweede thuis voor Eve want haar vader was er arts. Zij bracht er uren door om de geheime kamers en gangen te verkennen. Ergens in die vertrekken ligt de sleutel tot een verschrikkelijke misdaad, een onvoorstelbaar verraad waarvan de echo nog steeds doorklinkt. En kan zij Cole, haar voormalige minnaar, wel vertrouwen?

No doubt there will be saints and sages in our time; Masters of Wisdom and great Elders. There seems to be an endless stream of quotes from the sages of the past but where shall we find our great ones? Indeed, in this world of great confusion there must rise from this present day civilization brave souls willing to take giant steps for the preservation of our humanity. “No seeking, no finding” is what Bhante Dharmawara, the venerable Buddhist monk that taught me oh so many years ago, used to say. Adventure and seeking is what “Leaving Lucifer” is all about. All noble souls began at the beginning; just as you must. Let’s honor our yearning hearts and break away from the confining influences of the brain. Take this journey with me and in the end, it is my hope that you will be inspired take your own.

Ruben van Luijk

If we are to believe sensationalist media coverage, Satanism is, at its most benign, the purview of people who dress in black, adorn themselves with skull and pentagram paraphernalia, and listen to heavy metal. At its most sinister, its adherents are worshippers of evil incarnate and engage in violent and perverse secret rituals, the details of which mainstream society imagines with a fascination verging on the obscene. Children of Lucifer debunks these facile characterizations by exploring the historical origins of modern Satanism. Ruben van Luijk traces the movement's development from a concept invented by a Christian church eager to demonize its internal and external competitors to a positive (anti-)religious identity embraced by various groups in the modern West. Van Luijk offers a comprehensive intellectual history of this long and unpredictable trajectory. This story involves Romantic poets, radical anarchists, eccentric esotericists, Decadent writers, and schismatic exorcists, among others, and culminates in the establishment of the Church of Satan by carnival entertainer Anton Szandor LaVey. Yet it is more than a collection of colorful characters and unlikely historical episodes. The emergence of new attitudes toward Satan proves to be intimately linked to the ideological struggle for emancipation that transformed the West and is epitomized by the American and French Revolutions. It is also closely connected to secularization, that other exceptional historical process which saw Western culture spontaneously renounce its traditional gods and enter into a self-imposed state of religious indecision. Children of Lucifer makes the case that the emergence of Satanism presents a shadow history of the evolution of modern civilization as we know it. Offering the most comprehensive account of this history yet written, van Luijk proves that, in the case of Satanism, the facts are much more interesting than the fiction.

The end is nigh and the Prince of Darkness has just been offered one hell of a deal: reentry into Heaven for eternity—if he can live out a well-behaved life in a human body on earth. It’s the ultimate case of trying without buying and, despite the limitations of the human body in question (previous owner one suicidally unsuccessful writer, Deelan Gunn), Luce seizes the opportunity to run riot through the realm of the senses. This is his chance to straighten the biblical record (Adam, it’s hinted, was a misguided variation on the Eve design), to celebrate his favorite achievements (everything from the Inquisition to Elton John), and, most important, to get Julia Roberts attached to his screenplay. But the experience of walking among us isn’t what His Majesty expected: instead of teaching us what it’s like to be him, Lucifer finds himself understanding what it’s like to be us. By an author hailed by the Times Literary Supplement as one of Britain’s top twenty young novelists, I, Lucifer is “a masterpiece…startlingly witty, original and beautifully written” (Good Book Guide).

Montreal, Quebec . . . A charming city on the St. Lawrence River, historic, sophisticated, but beneath it all lies an extensive underground where treacherous vampires are plotting to seize the country. Lucifer Scuderi is a vampire--handsome and charismatic, a powerful hunter of unusual skill--who arrives in Montreal to take on the most important hunt of his life. Someone has kidnapped the mate of Canada's ruling vampire lord, and it's up to Lucifer to find him before his death sets off a crisis that could engulf the entire continent.

But now, twenty years later, she's a trusted bodyguard to the Canadian lord, Sophia, and the only person Sophia can count on to lead the search for her endangered mate. But what Eleanor doesn't know is that the special hunter she'll be working with is none other than her long-lost love. And he's demanding answers. Lucifer's love for Eleanor burns as hot as his anger towards her for leaving him. But they'll have to find a way to set history aside and work together if they're going to unravel the twisted betrayal that threatens not only Sophia and her mate, but the whole continent. Because the European vampires are on the move. And if Canada falls, the rest of North America could follow . . . D. B. Reynolds is the RT and EPIC Award-Winning author of the Vampires in America series of paranormal romance and an Emmy-nominated television sound editor.

Eric Johnson

From the moment of his creation, the fate of Lucifer was foretold by God: “You will be pure and holy, but in your choices you will become the embodiment of all that is unholy and heretofore evil.” Embracing his fate, he fails to take the throne of God and is banished from Heaven along with his followers. Declaring himself Lord of the Kingdom of Hell, he vows to God: “I will corrupt those that You love and turn them against You!” A vow that Lucifer does not fail to keep. In 'Lucifer: Lord of Hell,' Eric Johnson presents a modern take on the biblical story of good and evil. Five of the mightiest demons have lost faith in Lucifer and have escaped Hell to hide amongst the mortals. In a demand for their return, he prepares to unleash the greatest army of demons to ever assault Heaven and Earth in an attempt to take the throne of God. Armageddon, Hell on Earth, and the day of judgment is coming.

John M. Ingham

The physical signs of Roman Catholicism pervade the Mexican countryside. Colonial churches and neighborhood chapels, wayside shrines, and mountaintop crosses dot the landscape. Catholicism also permeates the traditional cultures of rural communities, although this ideational influence is less immediately obvious. It is often couched in enigmatic idiom and imagery, and it is further obscured by the vestiges of pagan customs and the anticlerical attitudes of many villagers. These heterodox tendencies have even led some observers to conclude that Catholicism in rural Mexico is little more than a thin veneer on indigenous practice. In Mary, Michael, and Lucifer John M. Ingham attempts to develop a modern semiotic and structuralist interpretation of traditional Mexican culture, an interpretation that accounts for the culture's apparent heterodoxy. Drawing on field research in Tlayacapan, Morelos, a village in the central highlands, he shows that nearly every domain of folk culture is informed with religious meaning. More precisely, the Catholic categories of spirit, nature, and evil compose the basic framework of the villagers' social relations and subjective experiences.
