Description : In dealing with the concept of magic in ancient Egypt, I came across some rather fascinating information in regards to other religions ceremonies belonging to the Christians and the Catholics. Some remarkable connections... In the pursuit of the knowledge of magic in ancient Egypt, we again arrive right at the door of the Stars and Constellations. We are not brought here by mysterious objects or elusive ideas, no, we are indeed guided by the ancient Egyptians themselves. We seem to have forgotten how important the "Word" is, even the idea of "the Word" descends from the ancient Egyptians, and surely they knew how to use their words. The word of this book would be "Heka!" The Power of Powers, The Power of the universal magical forces. The supreme!

Description : In ancient China, an emperor is regarded as tianzi or "Heaven's son", one who is sent from Heaven to rule the nation and its people. Little wonder that he held sway over the masses and is deemed sacred and inviolate. Literally, a dynasty's rise and fall, and the people's weal and woe, are intimately linked to his calibre and character. Much has been written about the great emperors of China. But what about those rulers who, through their whims and fancies, had the commoners gnash their teeth in grief and hate? Here are 12 stories on China's most notorious emperors—a motley crew of squanderers, murderers, thugs, lechers and idiots swaggering under the holy cloak of a tianzi! Read on and see how they got their just deserts!
