Strangest Book of the Week #13
The Scorpion God: Forbidden Wisdom of Belial
by Mark Alan Smith, 2012. Third Volume of the Trident of Witchcraft, Primal Craft Occult Publications. Limited edition, hand-numbered #636 of 999.
Couldn’t ask for a more appropriate 13th book of the week!
Krischa, for one, is much relieved that this isn’t the super-limited deluxe “Venom” edition bound in goat-skin, consecrated, and signed by the author with ink infused with his own blood. That would probably unnerve me, too! But no, this is just the standard edition – but quite nice it is, and it certainly appears to be detailed and highly informative with lots and lots of sigils and incantations and so forth. This standard edition has also been blessed and consecrated by the author, apparently making it a “talismanic” object in itself.
There’s really only so much I can say without either going off on a tangent or just paraphrasing what I read on other sites, so you may as well read what the publisher has to say about it!
One thing I know for sure is that this ain’t exactly your Aunty May’s wicca-witchy-new-agey-herbal-remedy-yoga kinda spirituality! Your grumpy Uncle Aleister, now…
