During these plague years, I'm delighted to be able to share this new anthology album. Curating and sharing these is a highlight of my year, and I'm glad to have this album as part of the ongoing anthology cycle that has now lasted for 10 years. Though there's been changes, and variations, and a lacuna, these have been a constant welcome rhythm through the years for me. Hopefully for others as well, this can provide some joy and comfort that the cycles in our lives continue no matter how rough the road may be along the way.

The Hermetic Library at has an overall vision of Archiving, Engaging and Encouraging the living Esoteric Tradition, Hermeticism, Aleister Crowley's Thelema, and more through Open Access Occultism for 25 years. Yes, this is the 25th year, the silver anniversary, of the library!

I started the benefit anthology project to help promote newer works in the Esoteric Tradition to the audience of the Hermetic Library and beyond. The anthology project also further raises awareness about the corpus and culture of magick and ritual. The site itself was started in 1996 and has ever since consistently been an extremely popular resource for students and researchers interested in the Esoteric Tradition. I encourage you to check out Hermetic Library and everything in the collection there, if you aren’t already familiar with it, as that’s the reason this project exists and may also offer inspiration to you.
