Serpent worship and occult sex Ophiolatreia - Rites and Mysteries of Serpent Worship is one of the most substantial and complete books written on this subject. It was published anonymously in London in 1889 by the Freemason and Rosicrucian Hargrave Jennings. In several voluminous works, Jennings developed the theory that the origin of all religion is to be sought in phallic worship of the Sun and fire, which he properly called "phallism." Ophiolatreia is just one of its expressions. Unlike many modern authors, for whom he word "phallic" implies the penis, Jennings used the word "phallic" in its non-gendered sense, meaning "relating to the sexual organs". Hargrave Jennings was a rival of Blavatsky and friend of the American sex magician and occult writer Paschal Beverly Randolph and both authors had a major influence on the twentieth century pioneers of sex magic. This collectors item describes the rites and mysteries connected with the origin of ophiolatreia and its rise and development in many parts of the world. The relation between snake worship, raw creation force and sexual energy includes Jennings analyses of Bacchic orgies and rites related to Saturn, Zoroaster, Abaddon, Dionysus and Osiris.

In To Explain the World, pre-eminent theoretical physicist Steven Weinberg offers a rich and irreverent history of science from a unique perspective - that of a scientist. Moving from ancient Miletus to medieval Baghdad to Oxford, and from the Museum of Alexandria to the Royal Society of London, he shows that the scientists of the past not only did not understand what we understand about the world - they did not understand what there is to understand. Yet eventually, through the struggle to solve such mysteries as the backward movement of the planets and the rise and fall of tides, the modern discipline of science emerged.

So when he is offered a junior position at a London law firm he hopes his life is about to change - but he could never have imagined by how much.

They've gone from sad youth statistics to young men with purpose - and at the heart of everything lies a crime that only they can solve.

The Gothic Wanderer Rises Eternal in Popular Literature From the horrors of sixteenth century Italian castles to twenty-first century plagues, from the French Revolution to the liberation of Libya, Tyler R. Tichelaar takes readers on far more than a journey through literary history. The Gothic Wanderer is an exploration of man's deepest fears, his eff orts to rise above them for the last two centuries, and how he may be on the brink finally of succeeding. Tichelaar examines the figure of the Gothic wanderer in such well-known Gothic novels as The Mysteries of Udolpho, Frankenstein, and Dracula, as well as lesser known works like Fanny Burney's The Wanderer, Mary Shelley's The Last Man, and Edward Bulwer-Lytton's Zanoni. He also finds surprising Gothic elements in classics like Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities and Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan of the Apes. From Matthew Lewis' The Monk to Stephenie Meyer's Twilight, Tichelaar explores a literary tradition whose characters refl ect our greatest fears and deepest hopes. Readers will find here the revelation that not only are we all Gothic wanderers--but we are so only by our own choosing. Acclaim for The Gothic Wanderer "The Gothic Wanderer shows us the importance of its title figure in helping us to see our own imperfections and our own sometimes contradictory yearnings to be both unique and yet a part of a society. The reader is in for an insightful treat." --Diana DeLuca, Ph.D. and author of Extraordinary Things "Make no mistake about it, The Gothic Wanderer is an important, well researched and comprehensive treatise on some of the world's finest literature." --Michael Willey, author of Ojisan Zanoni About the Author Tyler R. Tichelaar holds a Ph.D. in Literature from Western Michigan University. He has lectured on writing and literature at Clemson University, the University of Wisconsin, and the University of London. Tichelaar is the author of numerous historical novels, including The Marquette Trilogy (composed of Iron Pioneers, The Queen City, and Superior Heritage) the award-winning Narrow Lives, and Spirit of the North: a paranormal romance. His other scholarly works include King Arthur's Children: a Study in Fiction and Tradition Foreword by Marie Mulvey-Roberts, Ph.D. Learn more at From Modern History Press Literary Criticism : Gothing & Romance Literary Criticism : European - General

"Elma is a singer in a sleazy 1930s Berlin nighclub. Having suffered an appalling assault during the First World War, she has no memory of her former life. A man appears and tells her that she is, in fact, the wife of an Italian aristocrat, and a new life awaits her. But when she goes to Italy to pursue this dream, she is greeted only by problems and disappointments. Pirandello uses this story to explore the mysteries of identity and memory, themes that preoccupied him throughout his life. Hugh Whitemore's version premiered in London's West End in 2005 in a production starring Kristen Scott Thomas and Bob Hoskins. His other plays include Stevie, Pack of Liars, Breaking the Code and A Letter of Resignation. He has also written many film and TV scripts." .

From internationally renowned novelist Anne-Marie Villefranche comes another pair of novels in her series of narratives of impropriety set in 1920s Paris. This volume contains two classic novels of erotica, Mysteries d'Amour and Folies d'Amour, each detailing a lavish story of desire set in the lusty boudoirs of the city. Villefranche's d'Amour novels have previously focused on the pleasures of love, the joys of love, and most memorably, the follies of love, but this book focuses on love's mysterious nature. From the back streets of Montmartre to the opulent hotels on the Rue de Rivoli, the City of Lights casts an erotic and unforgettable spell. "An erotic tribute to the Paris of yesteryear that will delight modern readers." -- The Observer (London)
