The Knights, agents and assassins, will stop at nothing to obtain the treasure. Bravo has become both a target and a pawn in an ongoing war far larger and more deadly than any he could have imagined.

Elie Wiesel

On August 12, 1952, Russia's greatest Jewish writers were secretly executed by Stalin. In this remarkable blend of history and imagination, Paltiel Kossover meets the same fate but, unlike his real-life counterparts, he is permitted to leave a written testament. From a Jewish boyhood in pre-revolutionary Russia, Paltiel traveled down a road that embraced Communism, only to return to Russia and discover a Communist Party that had become his mortal enemy. Two decades later, Paltiel's son, Grisha, reads this precious record of his father's life and finds that it illuminates the shadowed planes of his own.        Passionate and fierce, this story of a father's legacy to his son revisits some of the most dramatic events of our century, and confirms yet again Elie Wiesel's stature as "a writer of the highest moral imagination" (San Francisco Chronicle).

Colm Toibin

“Tóibín is at his lyrical best in this beautiful and daring work” (The New York Times Book Review) that portrays Mary as a solitary older woman still seeking to understand the events that become the narrative of the New Testament and the foundation of Christianity—shortlisted for the 2013 Man Booker Prize.In the ancient town of Ephesus, Mary lives alone, years after her son’s crucifixion. She has no interest in collaborating with the authors of the Gospel, who are her keepers. She does not agree that her son is the Son of God; nor that his death was “worth it”; nor that the “group of misfits he gathered around him, men who could not look a woman in the eye,” were holy disciples. Mary judges herself ruthlessly (she did not stay at the foot of the cross until her son died—she fled, to save herself), and her judgment of others is equally harsh. This woman whom we know from centuries of paintings and scripture as the docile, loving, silent, long-suffering, obedient, worshipful mother of Christ becomes a tragic heroine with the relentless eloquence of Electra or Medea or Antigone. Tóibín’s tour de force of imagination and language is a portrait so vivid and convincing that our image of Mary will be forever transformed.

"The Bible isn't about religion, it's about our history." Origins of Evil is a study into the history of Evil, the hierarchy of these demons, and the connection to the UFO phenomena through genetic manipulation. Planet Earth is the domain of Satan and therefore rages a massive eternal battle of good verses evil with the Fallen Angels and their offspring, the Nephilim, against Mankind, Satan, and God. Included is a neoteric translation of the Testament of Solomon, showing the existence and practice of Demonology during biblical times and how those forces are still prevalent today.

Jake Stratton-Kent

The Testament of Cyprian the Mage is the third work in the Encyclopædia Goetica series by Jake Stratton-Kent, comprehending The Book of Saint Cyprian and his Magical Elements and an elucidation of The Testament of Solomon. This is the final work in Stratton-Kent’s acclaimed Encyclopædia Goetica series which began with The True Grimoire, a working reconstruction of the Grimorium Verum, and was followed by Geosophia: The Argo of Magic which explored the necromantic Greek origins of Goetia. The Testament of Cyprian the Mage is a fitting climax to this endeavour which has placed the author at the forefront of modern magic with a body of work that is both scholarly and aimed at practical application. All are standalone texts though benefit from being read as aspects of a single thesis: the importance of Goetia as the oldest continuous tradition of Western magic. As JSK affirms: ‘Goetic Magic … if properly understood would regenerate Western magic and underline its immense cultural significance, on a level equal to any spiritual tradition in the world.’ This understanding is clearly given in two volumes of lucid and fascinating exegesis with clear extracts from all the necessary works. The Testament of Cyprian the Mage is an ambitious and far-seeing work, addressing two ends of the magical spectrum: the Testament of Solomon and one version of the Iberian Book of Saint Cyprian. In doing so, key aspects of magical practice are revealed. This work draws upon these texts to create a clear understanding of the practice of grimoire magic, not as a discrete or degenerate subset of ceremonial magic, but one which is integrated with folk magic and witchcraft. In particular we discover a shared dramatis personæ, the infernal pact and a common terrain of Wild Hunt and Sabbat. Within the text we encounter the Chiefs, Kings and Queens of the grimoire tradition; the magical role of the Decans and their stones and plants; lunar magic and magical animals; the gods of Time; the Sibyl and the Hygromanteia; Asmodeus and Oriens; Angelology, Theurgy, Conjunction and the Pact, the Angelic Vice-regent and thwarting Angels; Asclepius, Iamblichus and Neo-Platonism; Paracelsus and the Elemental Spirits; Necromancy, and the principles of spell work. As JSK writes: ‘A primary purpose of this book is to explore the implicit mythology of grimoire spirits and the contexts from which it derives.’ It does far more. This is a fundamental revisioning of magic with profound implications for the magical revival which we are all engaged in.CONTENTS Volume 1:Exhortatio; Grimoire Timeline; References & Abbreviations; Defining and Redefining MagicBook 1 · St CyprianBlue Grimoires; Saint Cyprian of the Grimoires; The Great Book of Saint Cyprian: Introduction; The Life and Legend of Saint Cyprian; Iamblichus; The Confession of Saint Cyprian; Conjunction; Theoretical Implications: A Theurgic InterludeBook 2 · The Testament of SolomonIn Search of the Four Kings; The Testament of Solomon; The Spirits of the Testament of Solomon; The Spirits of the Testament of Solomon: Decans; The End of the Testament; The Sibyl and the Hygromanteia; The Sibyl of Thyatira; Asmodeus; A Word on AngelologyBook 3 · The DecansGods of Time; Egyptian & Hermetic Decans; Solar Theology; The Definitions of Asclepius; The Asclepius; Concerning Angels: The Vice-Regent; Oriens; Introducing the Sacred Book; The Sacred Book of Hermes to Asclepius; The Decans & Magical Characters; The Correspondences; Stones of the Decans; Plants of the Decans; Magical Animals
