You have been committing piracy.  For the price of a few dollars, you could repay those authors for all the time, effort, and knowledge they have put into them.  You are a disgrace.  If they are still in copyright, it is stealing.  And most of those, if not all are still in copyright, I'm not mistaken.  I regret that I helped you, in multiple ways.

Allow me to clarify this.  I have very many friends who are occult authors.  Universally, they are not rich.  They struggle along with the rest of us.  When you deprive them of the income that they rightfully deserve, which is a small portion of what they publishing houses get from book purchases, it is theft.  It is a shameful practice to just download copyrighted works.  The people who actually publish legitimate knowledge are doing all the rest of us a favor.  

Please keep this in mind.  Knowledge is not free.  It needs to be paid for.  There always needs to be an exchange.

 I make a living off of selling my own work digitally. It is HARD WORK. I find my stuff on piracy sites, and people graciously offering to give others it for free! It is NOT FREE for those who create it. Painstaking hours and hours days and days go into creating and publishing digital work. If a person can't afford to buy the item, they should not be stealing it and distributing it for free. Please learn from that , and really consider how it affects the creators. 

 

Many of us are small time businesses. This is the case for many occult authors as well. We rely on the income to support us financially, as well as support our growth in producing more content that people are seeking. It is not an easy journey, and it is expected and appreciated when the work is supported vs blatantly stolen and carefree/lessly given out to others to prevent further purchases.

A few of those books don't even have PDF versions. In fact, I am pretty sure you can't get any of the Troy books in digital format.

 

This is a great reminder to be more mindful of the work that goes into the information that is out there. There isn't a lot out there, and if the people who are putting information out there aren't compensated, it isn't likely that they are going to keep putting out the effort. A big thank you to those who do.

 

On Topic, I really want the the first two books listed, but I am going to have to wait until my budget is a bit more flexible. Wouldn't it be nice if we could have an unlimited budget for books? Happy reading!

I really like to have the book to hold in my hand , the feel of the paper etc I'm a bit of a geek that way. I have a Kindle that I brought because I keep breaking book shelves but reading digitally isn't the same. I would love to have a entire wall of occult related books so could defo do with a unlimited money pot. I just got given some books from the 70's the paper yellowing almost musty

 

I think this thread has become something very worthwhile cos in the age of technology it is easy to get everything online and likewise easy to forget the sweat and tears that go into producing books.

 

The Black Toad book still hasn't arrived, I'm starting to wonder if there's a problem , UK to U.K. Doesn't take long in the post so gonna have to contact Troy.

 

Nigel Pearson (Devils plantation) is one of my favourite witchy authors I really like his writing style. My copy of Treading the mill was signed by him, I was hoping this one would be too but unfortunately not.

Devils Plantation perfect in many way a brilliant book, back to the old times just what I want to know about, though it's unlikely I will chop off a corpses hand or kill a toad or allow it to be eaten alive by ants. Different times though

 

This is one of my fav books
