I found this neat site; a project which attempts to catalogue all the spirits and whatnot from Egypt, many things we don't have names for and don't really know what they are. They can be good or bad, helpful or evil, ancestors or household spirits, protective or healing, etc. etc. It's nice to see this vast creature artwork get some recognition and study.

Be sure to poke around in the bibliography if you're interested.
The term "khemetic demons" annoys me and I think the LHP defines it as something different than Egyptologists and Kemetics do.
