My article Magical Violence Within Buddhist and Eastern Philosophy is in the next issue of Rituals & Declarations Volume 2 Issue 3. It is now pre-ordering and copies can be acquired here. The delightfully handsome cover art is by Maria Strutz. It relates directly to the article Kissing the Eel: by Emily Banting which is reprinted with the kind permission of David Southwell (who is currently in need of treatment for health issues which are being fund-raised here.) This penultimate issue of Rituals & Declarations is jam packed with the finest of quality writings pertaining to the weird and occult by an eclectic, esoteric, and sterling group of contributors which features Paul Watson, Hookland, Sylvia Warren, L B Limbrey, Ben Graham, Bec Lambert, Beth Winegarner, Kevin Bateman, and Maria Blyth, to name but a few. Do please buy your copy and don’t get stroppy. It’ll be sure to sell out as it is a limited run small press zine.
