Michael W Ford

Author of over 24 books, Michael W. Ford is a leading Luciferian visionary and Left-Hand Path Adept and Magician. Ford’s publications are both tomes of magical instruction and academic research to provide the history, lore and modern practices within Luciferianism. These published grimoires unveil the Luciferian Tradition, founded upon a rational philosophy contained in the “11 Luciferian Points of Power”. Each book is envisioned by Michael as possessing a patron spirit or energy which if approached seriously by the reader, can inspire the gateway of the imagination and authentic esoteric initiation.

Luciferian Philosophy is an adaptable foundation of Left-Hand Path Magick and Spirituality, presented in each book. Each publication presents a deeply researched, developed and refined initiatory teachings which reveal the real nature of “forbidden” Magick including Luciferian, Satanic, Dark Pagan, Black Witchcraft and Vampyre teachings within the Left-Hand Path.
