The Ruh al-Quds and Durrat al-Fakhirah, translated with introduction and notes by Ralph Austin.
Sufis of Andalusia contains biographical sketches of mystics and contemplatives of Andalusia, drawn from two works by Muhyiddin Ibn 'Arabi
Sufis of Andalusia consists of biographical sketches of some of the contemplatives and spiritual masters among whom Ibn 'Arabi spent his early years. The Ruh al-Quds was written in response to the comments of a friend who lamented the spiritual degeneracy of the times in which they lived. These accounts bring to life with great vividness a remarkable spiritual milieu, and a group of individuals who manifest superlative wisdom in their intensity of devotion and service to Reality. This book will speak directly to all serious seekers after real knowledge.
Dr. Ralph Austin graduated from the University of London and carried out research at the University of California. He has given many papers on Islamic mysticism at international conferences, and has made a special study of the work of Ibn 'Arabi. His translation of Ibn 'Arabi's Fusus al-Hikam - The Bezels of Wisdom - was published in 1980.

Grimoire of the Baron Citadel: The Book of the Four Ways.
Three Hands Press
As the governor of the Dead and the burial ground, the Baron Samedi is one of the most distinctive and potent loa of Haitian Vodou. An imposing figure in black raiment, he is most often pictured as a corpse. His other magical domains, less discussed in esoteric literature, include disruption, obscenity and -- importantly for the practicing sorcerer -- not only the arts of Magic but the very fabric of which it is made.
Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...
Gnosis 19: The Trickster. A Journal of the Western Inner Traditions
"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us.
He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a
first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company
we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with
that all-important business contact."
- Richard Smoley, from the introduction
