Portland, OR: Azoth Press, 2016. First Edition. Hardcover. Large octavo. 635 pages. Bound in blue suede like cloth, with silver lion sigil to upper board and lettering to spine, two-toned and b&w illustrations, list of references. Edition limited to 1,000 SIGNED and hand-numbered copies. The second book by Bryan Garner, known to his fellow ceremonial magicians as Frater Ashen Chassan, and in it again is offered the opportunity to observe and learn from a practicing magus engaged in his Work. The author offers instruction in the processes of grimoric ceremonial magic and shares the insights he has gained from his ongoing research and operations. What may be most extraordinary about Gateways is that it allows us access to the detailed magical journal records of the communications received by Ashen Chassan and his gifted scryer, Benn mac Stiofán, during the evocations of such profound Spiritual beings as the seven Planetary Archangels, the seven Olympic Planetary Spirits, the four Spirit Kings of the Cardinal Directions, and the Supercelestial Angels Sandalphon and Metatron. 'Gateways Through Light and Shadow' is illustrated throughout with two-color line art of the talismanic magical implements used in the evocations, including sigils, seals, lamens, pentacles, and magic circles, along with new implements created by the magician under the guidance of the Archangels, as well as new portraits of the evoked Spirits. Of the work, Stephen Skinner says 'This book is a major contribution to the study and practice of Western ceremonial ritual magic. This is a book that no serious practitioner of magic should be without'. A faint hint of shelfwear else appears "as new" thus a tight, bright copy in near Fine condition. (no dust jacket issued). Large and heavy book may require additional shipping on international orders. Item #69831
