Cults of the Shadow

by Kenneth Grant

The republishing of the Typhonian Trilogies continued with the release in November 2013 of the third volume in the series, Cults of the Shadow, which completes the first of the three trilogies. Originally published by Muller in November 1975, it was subsequently reissued by Skoob Publishing in 1994. This new edition of 1500 copies is freshly typeset in an octavo format of 268 pages. Sewnbound hardback, with a magnificent colour frontispiece by Steffi Grant, a twenty-page section of plates, illustrated endpapers and a full-colour dustjacket, this republication integrates the errata from the Skoob edition within the text, and incorporates further corrections noted subsequently in Kenneth Grant's personal copy of the book. Many of the plates have been rephotographed, and some are printed in colour. More details about the book can be found here.

A review of this edition of Cults of the Shadow appeared in the Volume 5 Number 2 issue of the Australian magazine Living Traditions and can be found here.

The standard edition is now SOLD OUT.
