THE HOUSE THAT CERRITH BUILT
Vol. I of the Towneley Witch Tales
A down-on-his-luck writer looking for inspiration decides to spend a night alone and under the influence of hallucinogens in the ruins of a house that was rumored to have been built by a powerful family of witches long ago. What he experiences that night changes his life forever... and not necessarily for the best.
Over a century before that, in the last years of the Victorian Era, two young girls discover a book in the same house that might well have been written by the Devil- and it conjures forth unspeakable terrors and wonders that carry them both to the strange place beyond life and death.
"The House that Cerrith Built" contains the short story "Meadowsweet's Red Chaplet" and the prequel novella to that story, "Yet Thy Spirit Shall Not Sleep." Drawing upon deep strands of folklore, mythology, history, and esotericism, it weaves together two related tales of horror and mystery that ask disturbing questions about the ordinary definition of reality, and the nature of good and evil.

Coming Autumn 2016 from Black Malkin Press
The wisdom of the Master Spirit of this world shines through in no other place so strongly, wisely, and accurately as it does in Havamal, the Words of Odin himself- his advice to mankind about how to live, work, visit, strategize, love, and be a friend as well as a seeker of wisdom in this world.
This version of Havamal will not just be
a modern and accessible translation/arrangement, with archaic language removed and a smooth, understandable (yet poetic) presentation for the wisdom-verses and stories; It will also be fully annotated, with notes to many of the verses sharing insight and information about the historical or mythical backgrounds of the verses, and clarifying information about the cultural background that gave rise to some of these great, wise ideas and notions.
