Look up towards the heavens and open your mind to the infinite, for it
is there that you will see the colourful multifaceted world of winged
messengers - Gods, Angels, Fallen Angels and Demons.

BOTH SIDES OF HEAVEN is a collection of 18 essays by some of the
foremost modern esoteric writers, occult scholars and magicians. In their
personal contributions they share their experiences, research and
unique insights into the spiritual realms of the mysterious beings who
have played such an important and inspirational role in human
spiritual history. From the nature of the daimons of the Graeco-Roman
world, the Zoroastrian Ahuras and Daevas, the seductive Lilith and
mighty Lucifer, through to the Fallen Angels of the Bible and the Book
of Enoch, and their children the Nephilim, we find that these powerful
beings are harbingers of change.

In this anthology their magical natures are explored through the works
of Renaissance magicians such as Dr John Dee and Edward Kelley, Dr
Thomas Rudd and more recently Madeline Montalban, as well as in that
of the experiences of the contributors themselves. The ceremonies and
conjurations of grimoires such as the Key of Solomon, Goetia and
Grimorium Verum are considered, as well as adaptations thereof and
simpler, personal encounters.

When you look at Both Sides of Heaven seeking wisdom and knowledge
from the wings of ethereal messengers, you will see legions of angels
and demons, archangels, fallen angels, old gods and even a few faeries
and green butterflies. And maybe, they will be looking back at you
too.

"i can see why someone would feel uncomfortable with this book. it is a strange combination of essays showing different perspectives on angels, demons and other winged beings. the contributors range from being very well known and respected occultists, to magicians and mystics i have not heard of at all. but then, surely those of us seeking knowledge and understanding should be interested in more than the obvious!" Scarlet River, Amazon Reviewer

"emily's essay "the salvation of the sidhe" radiated such vision that it has left me aching to see her full "tarot of the sidhe" when it is published. jake's essay on grimoires was also fascinating and i think that his ideas focusing on the classical underpinnings of entity contact were well argued and presented and certainly an avenue for much further research on my part. finally, charlotte's essay simply bled hard won experience. but all these essays are far too short and needed much more space."  Paolo Sammut, Amazon Reviewer
