Conjuring Spirits: A manual of Goetic and Enochian Sorcery by Hermetic Library fellow Michael Osiris Snuffin, the 2010 hardcover from Concrescent Press, is part of the collection at the Reading Room.
“Sorcery, defined here as the art of conjuring spirits, is one of the traditional, core disciplines of magickal practice. It is highly admired and its practitioners accorded great prestige. While many of the old grimoires have baroque and elaborate procedures for conjuring spirits, Frater Osiris cuts through the Gordian knot of complexity and obfuscation to present us with a much more direct approach to evoking Goetic and Enochian spirits. It is simple, clear, practical and without mystification. It is highly accessible and designed to enable practitioners to assemble the few tools required, prepare themselves, and begin work almost immediately reaping the practical and spiritual benefits of sorcerous practice. Naturally, it is an approach that some won’t like, but many more will appropriate and tune to their own satisfaction. Anyone can get started here.” [via]
