With illustrated endpapers, color frontispiece, and a full color dust jacket designed by Steffi Grant. 142 pages. Octavo. Kenneth Grant began writing the novel in the mid 1980s. He developed it in order to explore, in a fictional setting, many of the themes of ‘The Book of the Spider’. The original intention was that Against the Light be published before The Ninth Arch, and this was achieved in 1997. Now that the Ninth Arch itself is to be republished later this year, it is fitting that the publication of Against the Light again precedes it. This new edition of Against the Light has been re-set, and incorporates the corrections and additions which Kenneth Grant noted in his copy of the 1997 edition. New illustrated endpapers have been designed to include diary entries by the author from 1985 when the novel was started. Also, some early plot notes; the first draft of a cover blurb from 1995; and a gloss where Grant gives the meaning of symbols on the front of the dust-jacket, and a colored frontispiece that reproduces the bust of Mephistopheles, a mysterious and compelling figure, which is an integral feature of this novel, and which appears elsewhere in Grant’s work
The Altar of Sacrifice is the first of The Books of the Way of Sacrifice. The first volume in this closely woven trilogy consists of three inner books, each revealing legendary power of the Olde Ways, attained through the Arte of Bloody Sacrifice.
First book by the Black Quill Element of the Temple of Set and the culmination of its Arcana Project which contains fictional stories, prose, and inspired artwork influenced in some way by one of the cards of Major Arcana of the Tarot. Originally created for limited private distribution for Temple of Set members, the Black Quill Element is pleased to finally make this work available to the public for those who would benefit from the Initiatory value of this collaborative work.

The German paparazzo Walter Fischer lived and worked in California in the late 1950s and 1960s. During this period, he documented the glamour, and, yes, the weirdness of the time and place for a multitude of international magazines. Of the great number of photos he is known for, the private images of Church of Satan founder Anton Szandor LaVey and movie star Jayne Mansfield, separately and together, are the most sought after. He was also privy to, and photographed, many of the events inside LaVey's "Black House” in San Francisco. This new book from Edda contains many unpublished images, and presents the time, place, and person in a unique way. The Church of Satan had just been born, and it was being sought out by large numbers. To further convey the ambience of this unusual occurrence, Kenneth Anger, Carl Abrahamsson and Alf Wahlgren have provide additional texts illuminating further the extraordinary photographs within.
The years since the financial crash have seen the realization dawn that the great promise of modern civilization will go unfulfilled. Study hard, work hard, buy a house, retire happy. It's all a lie, spun for the benefit of a tiny elite. The richest eighty-five people on earth have as much wealth as the poorest 3.5 billion. Each month, the numbers change but they never improve. Magical and spiritual discourse has failed to keep up with this new reality. The Chaos Protocols aims to fix that.

A new volume examines the cult of Saturn as practiced across the world through the ages, with special emphasis on the Saturnian gnosis as well as its ritual practices, both exoteric and esoteric. The book is being published posthumously as Dr. Moros recently passed away while on a trek in the Kush. THE CULT OF THE BLACK CUBE is a fascinating collection of esoteric texts, traditions and techniques that explores the essence of the mysterious Saturn death cult. Over the centuries, traces of this Mystery have been found in many varied occult traditions. This book must be considered essential for advanced LHP practitioners, and contains material for devotees of both Eastern and Western chthonic and saturnine Gnosis.
Many sincere occultists have hesitated to study the notorious left hand path for fear of stumbling into incalculable evil and ultimate damnation. As the last student of Aleister Crowley, Kenneth Grant has no such hesitations. In Cults of the Shadow he shows that the left hand path has no connection with black magic- it is a legitimate balance to the right hand path dating back to the primeval phases of consciousness. Grant leads us on a dark pathway through Africa's Ophidian (snake) tradition, Egypt's Draconian cult, and the Tantric secrets of India and Tibet into the present day.

Present-day exponents of these Mysteries have formed their own cults for the revival and promulgation of this Secret Gnosis. Among them are Aleister Crowley, with his Cult of the Beast and the Scarlet Woman; Charles Stansfeld Jones, with his curious qabalistic researches; Austin Osman Spare, the artist who evolved his own system of sexual sorcery based upon ancient secrets of Witchcraft; and Michael Bertiaux, with his Cult of the Black Snake.
