Mapping the hidden underworld of Hollywood and the entertainment industry to expose the cultural implant that has hijacked our consciousness and re-access the joy of the life force.
Working on your book would be an act of biting the hand that feeds me at the moment.. . . I think that one would be asking a publisher to bite the hand that feeds them by publishing a book that takes on a system they are invested in. Or if your theory is true – they would give you an advance then bury your book to protect their fellow media mafia.~Literary agent, to author, on 16 Maps of Hell
For decades, a shadowy cultural elite has been applying the evolving media technology to shape the global psyche and occupy the landscape of our unconscious. Since the early days of Hollywood, these manufactured narratives have spilled over the edges of the movie screen and into reality. They have slowly stripped us of our sense of meaning and replaced our innate sense of value with “Hollywood” values.
Without recognizing it, we have been seduced into complicity with an empire of imagery, lured into mass infantilization and cultural-enthrallment, and afflicted with an as-yet undiagnosed condition of “propaganda-derangement syndrome.”
Fortunately, in our struggle to awaken, features of the nightmare landscape have begun to creep into view. 16 Maps of Hell combines 24 in-depth Hollywood case studies with acute cultural analysis to assemble a holographic lens through which to examine the dark under layer of the entertainment industry—and its true purpose.
By closely mapping a collectively-assembled social Hell, it offers the means to extract ourselves from the enchantments of a dark and ancient technological sorcery.
16 Maps of Hell is 190,000 words and will be over 592 pages in finished form. It will include roughly 20 b/w illustrations by Mrs. Horsley

How can I buy a hard copy of 16 Maps of Hell? I don’t read kindles or listen to audios.
appreciate your interest – all copies are now sold except for a handful of hard copies (maybe 6) which I will either sell at collector price once I get them, or gift to donators (of a certain amount or over) to the new Galician project. thanks
Dear exquisite corpse, Alas, Just today 10/5/21 I realize I came too late to this beggars banquet by way of many last names. Would be lovely to read what you wrote either soft or hard. What are my options to follow your Maps? JMM
Awesome…Spread the word!
“It’s happening!” I’m very much enjoying watching this tally go up. All power to you and Mrs H. I’ll order a t-shirt also come next pay check xx
I’m from Kalamazoo Michigan.
I’m very excited to be a part of this project.
I sprung for option 3.
Halfway in under a week! £3,030.38
audiobook in sight
Yay! We all cross our fingers for ya!:)
£144 more and we hit the 2/3 mark
So looking forward to this book. Great to see the support for Jasun’s work.
If the audiobook happens will you be reading?
as far as I know I have the only voice that can match the brain state of the author
That’s good news Jasun. Not enough writer’s willing to read their own work. Good on ya.
hey! why no t-shirt for option 3?
because then option 3 would be $30 more
ok- don’t get the math but a 3a with a t-shirt for 40 or so pounds would get me. i’ll wait for the book.
cheers! and best of luck..peace, b
what’s to get? T-shirts cost $20 or so to make, plus postage; if you want a T-shirt, pick option 2
Goal no. 1 reached, and nearly 1/3 of the way to goal # 2 (audio book)!
awesome. congrats Jasun and congrats Liminalistas. we did it.
Note changes to the options: you can now pre-order the audio book via option 2; option 3 no longer includes the audio book, tho I will of course honor that promise for those who chose it before today.
Option 2 contributors from before today can also choose the audio book over the T-shirt.
Note also the addition of Homo Serpiens Redux/Redacted: Emerging from Occultism (Jasun Horsley Vs Aeolus Kephas) (100 page PDF) to options 2-6. This is also retroactive, meaning everyone who has pledged so far will receive this as an extra for their dedication & loyalty.
Please note: option 3 is now equivalent to pre-ordering the paperback; option 2 to pre-ordering the audio book.
Having tallied up, 128 copies have currently pre-sold of 16 Maps of Hell, leaving 72 of the 200 smythe-sewn paperback print run which I plan to order at the end of the campaign. Though there will probably be another print run after or simultaneous with that one, these paperbacks will be perfect-bound (reinforced); they will be slightly cheaper but also less durable as a result. They will also not be numbered or inscribed, tho they will probably still be signed.
better late than never

possible first line for back cover copy for 16 Maps of Hell: “Have we all been initiated into a sorcery cult without our knowledge or consent, to become serfs of a Hollywood superculture?”

There’s a dark underbelly involved with the Hollywood films we all grew up with, this book suggests that the underbelly is actually in plain sight, an ugly face only hiding to those with eyes wide shut.
I would feel more comfortable with a multiple choice option. Thank you for the opportunity to let us express our opinion.
I have your first 2 books but this one looks so interesting. Hollywood has taken up a lot of space in my internal world and I was intrigued and fascinated over the whole Joker and Heath Ledger. Where are the books being posted from?
I live in the UK and want to buy the paperback edition.
posted from Canada so price only includes surface mail
How do I arrange post?
Kurt H’s review in progress:
Discussion of 16 Maps:
“the difference between rocking the boat and helping people off the boat”
16 maps of Hell is an excellent read. It’s the first book of Jasuns I have purchased and I will read the rest in time. I’ve always been fascinated by the sinister side of Hollywood and it seems I have always been able to get down to the third onion layer of a movies storyline. This is a scholarly work and I appreciate how much Jasun has researched this subject regarding the psychology and manipulation behind cinema and the media in general.
Hello Jasun, I’d like to know where I could buy the audiobook?
Kind regards and thank you.
