Complete Books of Enoch, New Translation by Dr. Ann Nyland

I've mentioned a few times that one of my many private research projects is the impossibly deep rabbit hole of Angelology.  I've been at this for nearly two decades now, though admittedly I put it away for briefly to let it... rest?  Breathe?  Marinate in my subconscious for a while?  Whatever you want to call it, it's … Continue reading Complete Books of Enoch, New Translation by Dr. Ann Nyland

Broken Angel

In my carelessness, I lost footing in my library this morning and knocked over a small corner shelf of knick-knacks.  I had rearranged some things in there, and the large garden angel that's in the lower right of this photo had been moved to the top of that shelf a couple of weeks ago so … Continue reading Broken Angel

A Dictionary of Angels, Including the Fallen Angels by Gustav Davidson

This book … Continue reading A Dictionary of Angels, Including the Fallen Angels by Gustav Davidson

Plague of Angels by John Patrick Kennedy

There are many adjectives I could use to describe this book. Visceral. Inventive. Bold. Graphic. Bloodthirsty. Erotic. Offensive. Depraved. Soul-wrenching. Most people might use the word "epic" as a buzzword, without a true understanding of what that really means. In this case, it applies. I don't think any of the other descriptions even begin to … Continue reading Plague of Angels by John Patrick Kennedy
