Devoted Solstice



Dear Friends,
Devoted has been sent out to all those who have pre-ordered.
The saffron book cloth came in a week late, it seems that this book wanted to wait for the New Year to be sent.

It has surpassed our expectations.
The pictures do it some justice, but as with all books, you need to feel it in your hands.



We collected the books from the printer two days before Solstice.
On the way we stopped at a Stonehenge owned by corvids, safe behind English Heritage fences.
No pagans allowed to walk on the grass. The moorland bare. Sacred geometry now carved up by a triangle of roads.

It makes what we do with Scarlet Imprint seem all the more relevant, making books for those who are connected to the animating
spirits of magick and witchcraft. Neither gazing back at a lost megalithic past, or slackly staring at the mass-produced spectacle.
We are not interested in a magickal revival, we are creating a magickal revolution Now.

Howlings, The Red Goddess, Voudon Gnosis and now Devoted has made this quite a year.
Scarlet Imprint are not only here to stay, we are here to go.
We offer up profound gratitude to our readers for being an inspiration to us, for your support and letters.
We thank those writers who have made this past year such a whirlwind.
Libations are poured to Babalon for Love, and the Spirits of Goetia for making themselves known to us.

We are in voluntary exile in the mountains for the Winter now.
Much Work to do this year, and plans are very much in place.
Our replies to emails may be a little slower over the next two weeks with Saturnalia and limited net access.
Expect some spectacular books to be born in 2009 starting in the Spring, not Lambs but Lions.

Much Love
In Nomine Babalon

Zeitgeist

Though we certainly don't agree with all the conclusions, this is certainly worth a slice of your time:

http://www.zeitgeistmovie.com/


A compelling mix of conspiracy theory, exposure of the war on terror and 9/11 7/7, debunking of Christianity,
and savage indictment of the economic system.

Take what you will from it.

We will dynamite the black iron prison.
