AVAILABLE to PRE-ORDER.
Sepher ha-Maggid - The Book of Asmodeus By Humberto Maggi.
We now make available to pre-order the Sepher Ha-Maggid. Our initial idea was not to launch a pre-order phase and to have the book in stock right away.
But, since we already receive emails and messages requesting to place a pre-order, we therefore decided to make a temporarily short pre-order phase available for everyone who wishes to secure their copy right away.
We are currently working on the final details of the cover artwork. The internal lay-out design is now almost done with only minor corrections and proofread to do.
We aim to start the print production in the first weeks of June and have the book printed & bound a few weeks after. If all goes as planned, we then should be able to pack and ship the first copies of the STANDARD EDITIONS in the 3rd week of July.
We expect to ship the special deluxe editions a few weeks after the Standard editions.
Sepher Ha-Maggid - The Book of Asmodeus by Humberto Maggi.
"Scattered amongst the pages of the Talmud and of the Zohar we find elusive mentions about the Maaseh Kishuf, the Work of Sorcery, and the Maaseh Shedim, the Work of Demons. This grimoire gathers this dispersed knowledge to reconstitute the forbidden craft called in the pages of the Zohar the Serpentine Sorcery, attributed to the wicked Balaam and taught by the King of the Shedim, the demon Ashmedai, also known as Asmodeus.
The Talmud tells how the benign shedim conversed with the rabbis who were gifted with the "language of the demons," instructing them in the knowledge of sorcery; and in the Zohar we find that Asmodeus was Solomon's teacher, and that he gave to him a book of magical knowledge. Uniting academic research with the instructions of his own maggid shed (demonic teacher), Humberto Maggi presents a powerful combination of necromantic experience and scholarly knowledge to create a small jewel in the Solomonic Tradition of Magic."
