Suggested Reading Order of Michael W. Ford published works 

Version 2, November 2016

The Luciferian Tradition presented in the grimoires and published works of Michael W. Ford were in the beginning both a record of magickial workings and the modern approach to the Adversary. As the tradition grew and interest expanded, Michael’s works have built a momentum of refined historical studies of Luciferian origins and evolved initiatory practices. The Luciferian Philosophy has within the past few years defined and unveiled to those open-minded enough and the courage to seek self-liberation and empowerment via the Left Hand Path. Below is a basic outline by category of titles. If you have never read any of Ford’s works, begin with the following: Wisdom of Eosphoros, Beginning Luciferian Magick, Adversarial Light, Necrominon, Dragon of the Two Flames, Sebitti, Goetia of Shadows, Bible of the Adversary, etc.

Note - (....) indicates focus of work.

The following titles are a numbered list of suggested Luciferian Works of Michael W. Ford. For the purpose of gaining insight and perspective into the philosophical, ideological and purpose of specific practices of Luciferianism, 1-5 are essential. Category II 6-8 will provide you with a study of ancient pantheons and how they may be authentically invoked and worked with via initiation. Category III (Vampyrism) is not for everyone and is a dark path on the vast body of Luciferianism. The rest are optional and useful to the particular student on the early origins of Luciferianism in modern form and associated edited works by Mr. Ford.
