(Find it in both Hoodoo and Conjure Quarterly and Diamond Fire Magazine.) In that essay, I reviewed two books released by Avalonia Publishing, one of which was A Collection of Magical Secrets & a Treatise of Mixed Cabalah by Skinner and Rankine. This is two different pamphlets published together, and I found myself utterly captivated by A Treatise of Mixed Cabalah. The Mixed Qabalah of Abramelin Anyone who has read the Book of Abramelin (French or German) understands why that title would peak my interest. Those who have only read the French (aka “Mathers”) version of Abramelin have missed an important part of the puzzle. What we find in the restored Book II (see Georg Dehn’s Book of Abramelin) is fairly standard scriptural magick – like we would find in Use of the Psalms or Avalonia’s recent publication of The Book of Gold.
