Author: by Lucas Russo
Published at: Independently published (December 10, 2020)
Get to know the Greek gods and goddesses, from the mighty Zeus, to the temperamental Poseidon, the beautiful Aphrodite, and every character from A to Z. Who were the Olympians, and where did they come from? Why were the Titans overthrown?
How did these and other mythology tales shape Greek culture and civilization? Scholars have long been fascinated by the Greeks, and even today we are entertained by the stories of their mythology and pantheon. The Greeks developed an entire religion around powerful, vengeful gods, benevolent yet fierce goddesses, and bizarre couplings that created some of the strangest creatures in the world’s mythologies.
Who wouldn’t want to hear about Zeus and his command of lightning, Hades and how he found his bride, the wisdom of Athena, and so many other stories that capture the imagination. These stories can do more than just entertain; they can also inspire and teach us lessons that were penned by the Greeks themselves.
Starting with the creation myth, this book will take you through the stories of the Titans, introduce the Olympians, bring in the demigods, and sneak a peek at the monsters that made up the mythology. You’ll learn who all the gods and goddesses were in relation to one another, mythological explanations for natural events, and why any of this still matters today.

Author: by Mary Ellen Miller
Published at: Thames & Hudson (April 17, 1997)
The myths and beliefs of the great pre-Columbian civilizations of Mesoamerica have baffled and fascinated outsiders ever since the Spanish Conquest. Yet, until now, no single-volume introduction has existed to act as a guide to this labyrinthine symbolic world. The Gods and Symbols of Ancient Mexico and the Maya is the first-ever English-language dictionary of Mesoamerican mythology and religion.
Nearly 300 entries, from accession to yoke, describe the main gods and symbols of the Olmecs, Zapotecs, Maya, Teotihuacanos, Mixtecs, Toltecs, and Aztecs. Topics range from jaguar and jester gods to reptile eye and rubber, from creation accounts and sacred places to ritual practices such as bloodletting, confession, dance, and pilgrimage.
In addition, two introductory essays provide succinct accounts of Mesoamerican history and religion, while a substantial bibliographical survey directs the reader to original sources and recent discussions. Dictionary entries are illustrated with photographs and specially commissioned line drawings. Mary Miller and Karl Taube draw on their research in the fast-changing field of Maya studies, and on the latest Mexican discoveries, to produce an authoritative work that will serve as a standard reference for students, scholars, and travelers.

14. Magic: A History: From Alchemy to Witchcraft, from the Ice Age to the Present
Author: by Chris Gosden
Published at: Farrar, Straus and Giroux (November 10, 2020)
The Step-by-step practical guide to Magick and Divine RitualsFor thousands of years, mankind has been practicing magick under different denominations, traditions, and systems. However, in today’s world, magick seems to have been left behind, collecting dirt, buried in the dark corners of human history.
This is no surprise. Fear, dogma, and disreputable arcane teachings appear to have assaulted it. But this is not authentic magick. Real magick is a beautiful system that stood untouched throughout the ages. It is a mystifying expedition into the exotic realms of the unknown, manifesting profound change within and without.
Now, it’s time to illuminate it anew, leaving all of these lightless tenets behind once and for all. The magick presented in this book is vehemently pragmatic, unique, and innovative. It is not the customary approach of regurgitating magickal traditionalism.
Don’t expect to find that same approach and teachings here. This work doesn’t tackle superficial magick, but magick for profound self-transformation and self-transcendence. The magickal practices and rituals are divided into primary and secondary phases which include, but are not limited to:Designing Magick RitualsHigher States of Consciousness and Magickal TrancesMagickal Seals & SymbologyEnergy, Force, and ManifestationMagickal Purification, Healing, and ProtectionUsing Magick to Transcend the SelfMagick of the Subconscious MindSacred Elemental EnergyVoyage Into the Depths of AkashaFire-Born EmptinessDivine SignsBlack Magick vs.
