Any books y’all can recommend for a beginner like me?
Michael Kelly’s Apophis
Donald Michael Kraig’s Modern Magick
Julius Evola’s The Hermetic Tradition
John Coughlin’s Out of the Shadows
Frater Barrabbas’ Mastering the Art of Ritual Magic Volumes I-III
Brother Nero’s Satanism: A Believer’s Guide to the Religious Worship of Satan and Demons
Michael Ford’s Beginning Luciferian Magick
Phil Hine’s Techniques of Modern Shamanism Volumes I-III
and last but not least……
Scott Cunningham’s Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner
There are several more, and no, this list is not 100% Left-Hand Path. Application is application regardless of the Left/Right Paradigm.
Uncle Chuckie’s works are pretty awesome and he offers them on his website for free! Can’t go wrong with Uncle Chuckie. Psionics isn’t really my thing but he helped me understand the mechanics of magick. Plus his writing is really funny and enjoyable to read.
“Works of Darkness” and the BALG book are both good beginners guides to black magick and I still read WoD from time to time.
