Gnosis 19: The Trickster. A Journal of the Western Inner Traditions (New)
Book ID: GNO19, GNO19
"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us.
He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a

that all-important business contact."
- Richard Smoley, from the introduction
