    Post Demonology & General Myth. - Recommendations

    These three books have been great helps with my studies of Demonology and Mythology. I've referenced, quoted and read them hundreds of times during the time I've had them [: so enjoy

    First off under the subject of Demonology, A Field Guide to Demons, fairies, fallen angels and other subversive spirits by Carol K. Mack and Dinah Mack. A basic introduction to demons, fairies, fallen angels including how to identify common demons and fairies as well as an in-depth introduction. There is also a listing of demons based on place of origin. Water, Mountain, Forest, Desert, Domicile and Psyche are all included. Some with illustrations, but all with basic descriptions, lore and 'dispelling techniques' that will keep you held in your seat for quite some time.


    Next up on my list is A Witch's Guide to Faery Folk. by Edain McCoy A wonderful, comprehensive guide all about the Wee Folk, including a DICTIONARY of Fairies! How to contact them and invite them to lend their powers to your rituals. How to create an elemental familiar to help with your day-to-day witchery and a guided meditation into the land of the Fae. This is a must-have for all witches who've always had a deep admiration for the little people.

    Last but (definitely) not least is .. The Element Encyclopedia of Magical Creatures at first sight this book will impress and astound you with the beautiful cover art and the sheer size of the book. It reads like an old-world grimoire of mythological animals. Presented in a modern fashion. The book includes everything from Kokopeli to the anthropomorphic pantheon of Egyptian Gods. In an A to Z platform, you WILL reference this book dozens of times in the first six months you have it. Every time I've opened this book I've either found exactly the information I needed, or learned something new about mythology.

    I personally stand by each of these books and every page inside them, you've got my word that these books will be vital in your pursuit of knowledge.

    Also, can't recommend "The Book of Solomon's Magick" by Carroll "Poke" Runyon enough.

    They sound wonderful. I have been meaning to check out Edain McCoy. I am of course partial to R J Stewart for the Fae, but I was told Edain McCoy's books are worth a read. Thanks for sharing.

    You're forgetting A
    NEVER go alone.
    Always have someone in case one of you needs to be carried out.

    And thank you! I'd forgotten all about Occultopedia!

    I'm not that crazy about Edain McCoy's work, and no I'm not a Hatfield!LOL The 3 fold law stuff makes no sense as anyone who understand Karma, this is not how it works.In her tradition this law relates to the use of power and energy, for when used, power is returned to the sender, three times the level it was sent out. However she is quite a cute witch!LOL ^^

    R J Steward, Frank MacEowen, and even some of J & C Matthews works seem to point to the Fae and Sidhe tradition with a truer point of understanding than hers do.

    I would recommend Earth Light, Power Within The Land and Underworld Initiation by R J Stewart.

    Demonology, A Field Guide to Demons, fairies, fallen angels and other subversive spirits by Carol K. Mack and Dinah Mack. This one is interesting and can be accessible and well organised. The demons, fairies and other mythical beings featured in this book were taken from the legends and folklore of several cultures and they are grouped according to their place of residence: water, mountain, forest, desert, domicile and psyche. Each chapter includes a short description of the creature's appearance, habits and preferences; one of two stories of encounters with it; and a section on disarming and dispelling techniques. But its more of a history lesson on the very basic entities out there, NOT a true "guide" it covers the "best" known, but does not venture into the beings that are older and possibly, more "subversive". It doesn't even mention much of what has been attributed to Ireland (Well I'm Irish so,... LOL).

    Thank You redhand for pointing this out and giving your opinion. I have trusted R J Stewart's books and methods because they work. I think perhaps I will continue with what I have learned from his works for now. If it ain't broke , don't fix it. LOL.
