Description

Rosaleen Norton is now largely remembered as "the Witch of Kings Cross:" the Australian artist and occultist who gained notoriety during the 1950s and 1960s on account of her occult beliefs, unconventional lifestyle, and bizarre and often sensual artwork. A little-known sidelight to Norton's career was the publication by the popular magazine, Smith's Weekly, of three horror stories that she wrote while still in her teens. The magazine's editor, Frank Marien, was so impressed with these tales that he not only published them, but also offered Norton a cadetship. The short stories first appeared in Smith's Weekly in 1934, and were later collected and published under the title Three Macabre Stories in an extremely limited letterpress edition in 1996.

This new edition of Three Macabre Stories contains those original three short stories, along with two previously unknown stories by Norton's husband Beresford Conroy: works to which she almost certainly contributed. It also includes reproductions of a group of grotesque drawings executed by Norton not long after her involvement with Smith's Weekly, the first-ever reprinting of three comic illustrations she drew for that magazine, and a revised Introduction and new Foreword by Keith Richmond.

York Beach, Maine USA: The Teitan Press, 2010. Limited Edition Hardcover. 8vo. xxxii + 64pp. Black cloth with gilt titling to spine. Frontispiece & black and white illustrations. Edition limited to 666 numbered copies.

Norse Mythology Norse Mythology
Gaiman, Neil
W.W. Norton & Co. Inc.

Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales.

In Norse Mythology, Gaiman stays true to the myths in envisioning the major Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin's son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki--son of a giant--blood brother to Odin and a trick...

The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context) The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context)
Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press

Limited to 800 copies

The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution. Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...

The Voynich Manuscript The Voynich Manuscript
Clemens, Raymond
Yale University Press

Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...
