Alex’ Abramelin Challenge

The Book of the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage

The Book of the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage

What can one do when you are forced to stay at home for at least six months due to COVID 19? For some people it means investing in ZOOM, Netflix, drinking wine from 9am in the morning, etc. I however am taking the opportunity to fulfil a long ambition, and actually do the Abramelin operation.

I started it the day after Easter, as one is supposed to, This will be an ongoing thing for the next six months, i.e. until the middle of October.

In the meantime, it occurs to me that one of the details of the original Abramelin operation was that Abraham the Jew donated “ten golden florins” to initially receive the Sacred Magic – this Abramelin donated to those in need. I have often thought that this is an important part of the challenge undertaken by the aspirant.

In order to accomplish this in modern times, I therefore intend to do a “sponsored Abramelin operation” – all funds raised will go straight to a UK based charity which helps poor and vulnerable families during the COVID 19 Pandemic.

To sponsor me, therefore, please follow the link below. Thanks!

The Alex Sumner Abramelin Operation


All thanks to God and to my Holy Guardian Angel for giving me the opportunity to perform this work.

Alex komt naar Nederland

Famke Janssen

Ja hoor, dit is relevant!

Hoi! Nederland heeft de wereld zo lief door de jaren heen gegeven: Heineken, Amstel, Jenever, het Noorderlicht, Famke Janssen, etc etc. Het gaf me ook een huis voor een jaar in mijn jeugd, want ik ben een verleden-Erasmus student aan de Rijksniversiteit Leiden. Daarom is het tijd voor mij om iets terug te geven, en dus met nederige dankbaarheid aan deze mooiste landen, ik heb veel plezier in te kondigen dat mijn romans zijn beschikbaar in Kindle-formaat uit www.amazon.nl.

Jazeker! Bovendien heb ik nu een extra pagina geplaatst op mijn website, in het bijzonder voor de Nederlandse (en inderdaad Vlaamse) bezoekers, die de details van al mijn boeken bevat. Voor meer details zie:

2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 31,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 11 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Site Update

You are now able to enjoy browsing solascendans.com without having to put up with annoying adverts! Apart, obviously, from shameless plugs for my own books, that is – that ought to go without saying. 😉 Seriously though, I have taken the plunge to pimp my website and pay WordPress not to put unrelated adverts on my blog. This has little to do with any clever business acumen on my part, but more to do with the fact that I can hardly expect my visitors to enjoy these ads if I do not enjoy them myself. 🙂

Where to market your ebook part 2

This is a follow-up to my last post. Just to demonstrate that I am prepared to put my money where my mouth is, I have now translated my About page (see the Alex Sumner link in the navigation bar) – which, coincidentally, is where you can find links to buying my books either in print or as ebooks, plug, plug – into five extra languages, to reflect the linguae francae of the non-Anglophone countries on my top ten list. To wit: German, French, Dutch, Spanish and Italian.

Unfortunately Filipino is not among them, as I fancy my proof-reading skills in Asian languages even less than I do in European ones!
