The Occult Digest: Vol. I, Issue I, 2016

A Journal of Esoteric Thought, Practice, and Expression


Edited by Dr. Louie Martinié


The Occult Digest originated in the early 1920’s and endured several re-births and transformations. Black Moon is honoured to be instrumental in the current re-birth of this historical publication and it is our goal to bring this time-tested entity into the present day to give voice to the many writers, artists and poets representing the myriad facets of esoteric thought, practice, and expression.


The Occult Digest and The Cincinnati Journal of Magick (that we published circa 1976-1979) have much in common. So it is actually a re-birth and merger of two very distinct and unique publications that were considered ground-breaking in their day and we hope to continue that tradition with this current re-birth.

This is an amazing effort on behalf of all involved in putting it together. For anyone interested in the occult and esoterica this is a must have in your collection. A wealth of eclectic information in these pages combined with good solid research, masterful writing skills and phenomenal art all make for a treasure for both seasoned readers of the occult and for those just discovering it. Discover for yourself the magic that is New Orleans along with a host of other offerings. Kudos to Black Moon.
