All these are available in English translations--some better, some worse. But be aware that without good "explication," many of these are liable to be just....confounding. Or even distressing!

Those are the main texts studied that could be classified as "tantra material." Kalachakra Tantra is especially valued, and is the source of a great deal of Rangjung Dorje's treatise, as well.
Also, in general, reading any Tantra--Samvara, Hevajra, etc., would appear "like magic spells" or other strange ritualistic things without explanation, I agree.
