About this title

Synopsis:

Michael Constantine Psellus (1018-1178 C.E.) was one of the most notable writers and philosophers of the Byzantine era, the driving force behind the university curriculum reform designed to emphasize the Greek classics.

This essential book delves into the life and scholastic contributions of Psellus. Most importantly, it explains exactly how the ancient Byzantines perceived the nature of Daemons―a critical component to truly understanding The Key of Solomon, and other classic texts on magical Hermetic knowledge.

About the Author:

Stephen Skinner began his career as a Geography lecturer and magazine publisher, but his long term interests have always been Western magic and feng shui.

During the 1970s he was the driving force behind Askin Publishers, producing a number of classic magical works by Cornelius Agrippa, Paracelsus, Austin Osman Spare, Aleister Crowley, and others. During the 1970s he co-wrote many books with Francis King, including the still popular Techniques of High Magic. Also with Francis King he wrote Nostradamus. His interest in prophecy stimulated by this book, he went on to write the best selling Millennium Prophecies.

Stephen is credited with bringing the art of Feng Shui to the West, and in 1976 he wrote the Living Earth Manual of Feng Shui, which was the first English book on feng shui in the 20th century.

Stephen has written more than 35 books, which have been published worldwide in 28 different languages. These books have had introductions by such diverse people as Colin Wilson, HRH Charles Prince of Wales, and Jimmy Choo, shoe designer to the stars.

Stephen lives in Singapore. Stephen is the first Westerner to be awarded the title of Grand Master of Feng Shui by the International Feng Shui Association.

Marcus Collisson, a graduate of Trinity College, Dublin, flourished circa 1841-1876. He lived in various parts of New Zealand and the Australian colonies, and was described as a writer, lecturer, and publisher, who may even have tried his hand at preaching.
