Occult historian Robert Turner suggests that 'there is a race that rides curiously in tandem with humanity, a shadow, an intense and inseparable Mr Hyde.' He has, at last, managed to unearth texts which complete that pungent and vertiginous magickal grimoire known as The Necronomicon. What lurks behind its terrible gorgon beauty may encode the ultimate threat, or last chance, for humanity.

No longer in print, a previously unknown cache of copies has come to light which we are now selling online. Very few left.

This intinate memoir of the relationship between Kenneth Grant and Aleister Crowley is illustrated with personal mementos, many hitherto unpublished. It covers the latter years of World War II and Crowley's settling into his last abode at 'Netherwood' in Hastings. Here we see Crowley at his most human, and his letters to Kenneth Grant are imbued with that strange interpenetration of the magickal and the mundane which colours the life of a dedicated practitioner.

Michael Harrison offers authenticated examples of this phenomenon from earliest recorded history to the present day and takes a look at the possible explanations of the theories.

The Necronomicon gazes backwards into the abyss of time to the remnant of a potent and perilous magical inheritance, emanating from a past pre-human in its unfathomable antiquity. Who or what were the lawful entities then wrestling for the possession of our planet? Why did they need to battle through the depths of space to reach the earth? And, after their apparent departure, what is their legacy to us? The creation of The Necronomicon is usually ascribed to H.P. Lovecraft, but research has brought to light some unexpected and disconcerting suggestions that seem to lead in another direction.

'There is in these deep and richly evocative poems the great power and sensitivity of a Shelley, along with the visionary incisiveness of a Blake. They are marked by the almost valuptuous sense of visual imagery common to the Symbolist school and are accompanied by a deep and abiding sense of the personal experience of the esoteric life. This is a marvellous collection for students of all traditions and levels; a flawless and beautiful facsimile edition.'
