Men Among the Ruins by Julius Evola

I have read Men Among the Ruins by Julius Evola. Written after the Second World War as a commentary on social, political, and historical matters, it contains many interesting insights. Some have labelled Evola’s post-war writings as ‘black-pilled’ (i.e. negative and defeatist); I did not get this impression upon reading it. Instead, I found it […]

The Magian Tarok by Stephen E. Flowers, PH. D.

The One-eyed God and the (Indo)-Germanic Männerbünde by Kris Kershaw

I have read The One-eyed God and the (Indo)-Germanic Männerbünde by Kris Kershaw. Written in 1997 as a dissertation, it is 457 pages long and contains plenty of interesting insights. One could liken it to a gold ore that can be mined for said interesting and valuable insights! A Call to Action The dissertation truly […]

The Practical Art of Divine Magic by Patrick Dunn

I have read The Practical Art of Divine Magic by Patrick Dunn per the recommendation of a trusted friend. It turned out to be a solid recommendation. The author discusses various, sometimes complicated, concepts and explains them in a very accessible way – making the book a good introduction to the metaphysics of antiquity. Since […]

Lords of the Left-Hand Path by Stephen E. Flowers

I have read Lords of the Left-Hand Path by Stephen E. Flowers. I have previously reviewed three other works by Flowers: Icelandic Magic (review here), Rune Might (review here), and Revival of the Runes (review here). Lords of the Left-Hand Path is, just as the aforementioned books, well-written and insightful. In fact, it is one […]

The Doctrine of Awakening by Julius Evola

I have read The Doctrine of Awakening by Julius Evola. Reading this book was a natural step after reading The Yoga of Power (read my review of it here). Evola was, as you may know, a Traditionalist and, generally speaking, wrote from a Right-wing perspective. Evola took issue with the faulty (i.e. ‘hippy’-like) interpretations of […]

Revival of the Runes by Stephen E. Flowers

I have read Revival of the Runes by Stephen E. Flowers. Just as Icelandic Magic (review here) and Rune Might (review here) by the same author, it is highly insightful and interesting. I thought that the only reasonable course of action was to continue along the same path by reading more about the runes. Stephen […]

Rune Might by Edred Thorsson (Stephen E. Flowers)

I have read Rune Might by Edred Thorsson – which is the pen name of Stephen E. Flowers. I first encountered his writings a while back when reading Icelandic Magic (read my review of it here: Icelandic Magic by Stephen E. Flowers), which I found highly interesting. Therefore, I decided to continue along the same path […]

The Mystery of the Grail by Julius Evola

I have read The Mystery of the Grail by Julius Evola. This book was at first just an appendix to Revolt Against the Modern World, but three years after its release Evola published The Mystery of the Grail as a book of its own – which is fortunate for us. On a personal note, I […]

I have read Dr. Charles William Daily’s excellent book The Serpent Symbol in Tradition – A Study of Traditional Serpent and Dragon Symbolism, Based in Part Upon the Concepts and Observations of René Guénon, Mircea Eliade, and Various Other Relevant Researchers. At 572 pages, with quite technical language, reading the book is a bit of […]
