The Web Store Is Coming Down

I’ve decided to pull down the web store on the Malleus Maleficarum web site. It’s just too much work, and it’s not bringing in the results we expected. For some reason the people who bought so many books through our Amazon.com affiliate links aren’t interested in buying those same books directly from us. So… why […]

Malleus Maleficarum @ All Men are Liars

by Sam de Brito There are lots of scary books in the world, with almost anything written by Stephen King or Sarah Palin pretty much unreadable if you’re afraid of the dark and camping somewhere isolated. Of course, there’s another type of scary: certain “holy” books that, in my opinion, people do themselves an injustice […]

The Right Waging Spiritual Warfare: You Too Could be a Witch

by Hrafnkell Haraldsson October 22, 2010 Excerpts: You too could be a witch. All it takes is an accusation. Why is it as the year 2010 draws to a close that we find ourselves talking about Witchcraft? I don’t mean Wicca, the religion that sees historical witchcraft as survivals of ancient Pagan religion, but of […]

Fragments of Evolving Manhood: When Witches Stole Penises

In a very entertaining article, author Richard Jeffrey Newman explores some of the issues and subject matter involved in the Malleus Maleficarum, using a contemporary example of a man who has lost his penis (to a witch) to get the article rolling, and following with a more serious discussion. I recommend it for a fresh perspective on […]

Is It Okay To Read The Malleus Maleficarum?

I stumbled across references in the Landover Baptist Church forums about the Malleus Maleficarum. If you’re not familiar with Landover Baptist Church, rest assured that it’s a parody of fundamentalist churches and the Religious Right. What makes this web site so poignant is that the issues that are parodied are often indistinguishable from the real […]

National Talk Like A Pirate Day

September 19th is National Talk Like A Pirate Day. For that day, the Malleus Maleficarum will be converted to Pirate speak. So don’t be surprised if you go there and find that the entire text of this diabolical work suddenly has been invested with an extra swagger that it didn’t have before. Hopefully we won’t […]
