    Default Konstantinos

    Has anyone heard of this author? If so, and you've read his work, what do you think of him?

    Calling Dark Forces and Powers, your guide to the dark side is one of his books. He also composes occult music if I am not mistaken. I have not read him but his books look interesting. I think he has a website although I am not sure. I hope this helps a little.

    I bought Summoning Spirits and read a little. He seems to know a great deal about rituals and evocation. That book is more like a beginner's guide to magick. I was getting bad energy from him so I stopped reading it. I urge people to give him a look, though, and discern for yourself.

    You are like me, if I feel the energy is not in my best interest that is it. I have read books that have knocked me out physically, and then it is time to get rid of them. I try to read as much as I can to see if there is a new slant on any ritual, but I am happy with my books on Theosophy and my other studies. I will check him out one day.

    Once upon a tyme (pretentious spelling),
    our brave hero Konstantinos found himself writing a book.
    During this task, an obstacle came into his path.

    "What is your name?" our hero asked bravely.

    The obstacle slowly looked him in the eyes and whispered slowly,

    "Brain tumor."

    He banished the **** out of it with magick and lived on.

    He is tall, wears all black, and smokes cloves. (like any self-respecting goth wizard of the highest order).

    Sometimes, and all too often, he enjoys absinthe.

    He writes books, people can be found buying them.

    Once or twice, he hung out with Clive Barker and drew a picture of Cthulu because those guys like spooky things.

    Although it is long thought to be a common misconception, Konstantinos is actually a male human. Currently.

    Well that is good to know. I wonder what is is like to be human even for a moment.

    I'm not sure what to classify as "human".

    Is it merely animating a person suit?

    Konstantinos is a pretty good author though. Sometimes he gets a bit of course and throws his person religious beliefs into things. Overall he stays objective and relates the tool that is magick, rather than the religious structures it can be plugged into.

    I've got quite a few of his books. Some really great starting info in them. I would say that even those who are well versed in this whole mess that is the occult should give them a read over, if for nothing more than a new view point.

    I liked "Summon Spirits" the most of K.'s oevre. Still I would not use GD accessories as he does. But maybe it is worth a try...
    And: One should be careful with his list of entities. In doubt it is better to work first with the elemental kings (and queens lol) and then go the way up. A guy like Frucissiere at the beginning might fry ones brain.

    I have tried to read a few of his book but, was disappointed. Summoning Spirits seems to be one of his better ones, it would make a good intro for working with some entities like the Olympic and Goetia you might do good to use Modern Magick by Kraig or something similar along with it though.

    Well, I've read Nocturnal Witchcraft, Vampires and Nocturnicon.

    Content wise, it's a lot of fluff. I wasn't heavily impressed, but his style is attractive, and the Vampires book was decently well written.

    Despite this, I can't recommend him. I second the comment made above about writing this stuff for profit, and I highly doubt he has done most of the things he's said he has - which could potentially put an unwitting teeny-goth would-be-witch into serious mental trouble if they go trying stuff they are not at all expecting to handle.

    With all that aside, I hear he isn't a very good person. 'Asshole' would be the word used. A friend of mine met him once, and so did a friend of HIS. He wasn't amused, and found him quite full of himself and quite empty of anything else. My second-hand friend, a female, had flown from England to New York to visit with him three different times and he blew her off each time.

    My input, but, I'm passing along that with Vampires aside, he's getting a 1 out of 5 stars for pretty much failing at it.
