From the publisher: "Drawing upon the shadow aspects of a variety of traditions, including the “khabit” of Ancient Egypt, the Biocentrism of Ludwig Klages, Aghora, the Gothic, and David Beth’s pan-daemonic “Kosmic Gnosis”, all distilled through the author’s practice. The Benighted Path explores the breach through which the egoic self is slain in order to unleash the aspirant’s true Soul, and Only then may the Benighted offer their adoration to the Gorgon, and partake of the Sidereal Feast. The work is further enriched with related conjurations, ritual instructions and a treatise on the Faustian pact." From the collection of Clive Harper with his discreet book-label neatly tipped in at the rear. Harper is well- known as the bibliographer of Austin Osman Spare, for updating the Aleister Crowley bibliography in the 2011 Teitan Press collection of Gerald Yorke's writings, and as someone who has lent his expertise to numerous other publications.
