Publisher's Summary

Many magickal texts have been written around the Watchers, and I am hoping to add my two cents to the discussion. Several decades ago, I worked with the Watchers. In this book, I have resurrected my notes and will bring some elements forward to reflect current information. For example, any ritual suggestion will still include old elements I used in the 80s, but I will bring it forward to reflect our latest advances, such as the ease of obtaining incense and the like. This book will be extremely heavy in historical and textual analysis. I feel the Watchers are very interesting, and I have not yet found a comprehensive text on them. Existing texts are very general, or they seem to focus on one narrative element. I will try to make my analysis of them as comprehensive as possible. The information is scattered around; I like to bring ideas together and that is what I will do here in this book. I know many just want the magick but I would be doing many and myself an injustice without at least giving the history behind things. I am also a historian so that might be part of it. This is fun for me.
Here is a glimpse of what will be covered in this book. Aside from the rituals of course, we will be covering the basics of the Watchers' story as it is understood in Genesis since it is there that the first inkling of the story emerges in the scriptural tradition. I emphasis scriptural because there is evidence that some texts exist that predate Genesis that contain a proto-Watchers narrative. Some of these early stories have some connection to Ancient Mesopotamia; we will discuss that as well. We will, of course, cover the Watcher tradition in the various books of Enoch; that, I suppose, is a given. We will also discuss the Watcher tradition as it relates to texts outside the accepted canon as well.
