Miskatonic Books announced yesterday that lead book guru Larry Roberts and partner-in-crime Jack Grayle, of Hekataeon fame, will be starting a new publishing company called Araxes Press and their first publication is already at the printers. They have started with an amazing follow up to Peter Jenx’s well-received book on Thai magic, Yak Sant, released in 2016. Thai magic is a flexible and traditional type of folk practice that continues to be pertinent and effective.
The first book currently under contract is THAI OCCULT 2: Regions of Power by Jenx, and is already available for pre-order.

“Thai Occult 2: Regions of Power” is highly anticipated sequel to Peter Jenx’s sold-out masterpiece, “The Thai Occult.” TTO2 takes the reader on a wild journey, exploring the amazing regional variations of Thai folk magic. What comes to light is not a dusty, monolithic tradition, but a fluid, adaptable system of spirit work that changes with the changing times. Brilliantly, Jenx lets the Thai ajarns tell their own stories in their own words, and what they reveal about the role of initiations, astrology, karma, corpses, and ghost-magic must be seen to be believed. Remarkably, Jenx also gives a detailed guide on how Westerners can participate in this powerful occult system by caring for and communicating with the spirits contained in amulets created by Thai sorcerers. As if this weren’t enough, the book contains a first-ever description of the sacred properties of certain herbs, metals, and alloys – to include the occult role of Mercury and the mysterious Leklai. Join Jenx to discover a powerful living current of sorcery which reflects the beauty and endless variety of Thai culture!
