October Frights Blog Hop - day 4
Today's post for October Frights includes a webcomic "Sex and Sorcery" and a brief look at Magick in the Starblood series.
Paul who is featured in the webcomic "Sex and Sorcery" is Satori's mentor and friend. He collects ancient and rare esoteric texts and objects and practices ceremonial magick and child sacrifice inspired by his hero Gilles de Rais.
Satori feels less restrained by ancient rules, although he does consult texts when faced with the problem of how to get rid of Lilith. His style is much more free than Paul's. He practices Chaos Magic and admires Austin Osman Spare. Satori has a scar on his shoulder from when he failed to finish a difficult ritual.
The automatic drawings above were created by Austin Osman Spare.
Ivan's magic is rooted in Shamanism. Freya's brother interacts with nature and gives thanks for the energy he accesses. His inspirations include Carlos Castenada and Don Juan.
Freya is the most free of them all, using a mix of everything that works for her. She begins her journey after a book seller seduces her with a text about the demon-goddess Lilith. She uses sigils to summon Samael for sex and uses their combined secretions to create a powerful paste.
The main magical texts I used while writing books one and two of the Starblood series were -
The Book of Lilith – Barbara Black Koltuv, Ph.D.
The Mystical Qabalah – Dion Fortune
Nightside of Eden – Kenneth Grant
