Anyone have any good resources of angles and/or demons to include online material, books, Saints' testimonies, etc.?

I'm going to need this.

Are you looking for classifications, or like "actual experiences"?   I'd be interested in reading Saints' testimonies myself.

Experiences or theology beyond the basics.

Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

The Ethiopian tradition is absolutely saturated with Angels.  For a start, here are some examples from the Ethiopian Synaxarium or many wonderful stories and narratives about experiences with the Angels.
Saint Michael helps Samson slay the Philistines
  Saint Michael comes to the Prophet Samuel
Saint Michael helps Joshua and the Israelites defeat the Canaanites
Saint Michael saves Shedrach, Meshrach, and Abed-Nego
Saint Michael intercedes between Jacob and his brother Esau
Saint Michael helps Habbuk the Prophet, also aids Daniel in the Lions' den
Saint Michael helps Abba Alexander smash pagan idols
Saint Michael helps Saint Constantine

stay blessed,
habte selassie
