Cults of the Shadow


Kenneth Grant

The reprinting of the Typhonian Trilogies continues with the republication in September 2021 of the third volume in the series, Cults of the Shadow.

Cults of the Shadow was first published by Muller in November 1975, and subsequently reissued with an errata page by Skoob Publishing in 1994.

A second edition was released by Starfire Publishing in 2013. This edition was freshly typeset, assimilating the errata from the Skoob reissue, together with further corrections noted subsequently in Kenneth Grant's personal copy of the book. The second edition appeared in an octavo format of 264 pages, with a sumptuous colour frontispiece by Steffi Grant, a twenty-page section of colour and half-tone plates, illustrated endpapers, and a full-colour dustjacket. Where possible, plates were rephotographed for the second edition, some presented in colour for the first time.

The present republication is a reprint of the second edition. It is available in two formats: hardback, bound in black cloth and with a dustjacket; and paperback, with a sturdy cover. Both format are sewnbound on good-quality paper.

More details about the contents of the book can be found here.

The hardback format is temporarily out of print.
