Binding: Hardcover with dust jacket
Book ID: THP20104, THP20104
By the Collar of the Jackal and the bone that gnaws, embrace your bravery. For the Mother has smelled you and she is coming. Stand at the ready, for the Jackal-headed gods runs ahead of Her and he brings the bone, the little secret bone, in his jaws and the time of testing is at hand. Place your fear in my waters; I will drink it as wine and be drunk. Take the bone you are offered and close your eyes... -- Qani nyx-ipamai, Genius of Qoph
Aleister Crowley's obscure Liber 231 remains one of the most enigmatic received magical texts, and one whose genesis directly concerns the workings of astral magic and trance-mediumship. A Gathering of Masks is the summation of direct magical workings with the Genii of the Domes, the spirits governing the revealed mystery of Liber 231, and serving as the wards of the Major Arcana of the Tarot. Fulfilled by the author over a period of a decade, the twenty-two evocations of the Genii of the Domes reveal a patterning of power and gnosis heretofore little-explored in the practice of the Art Magical.
The book commences with the author's Introduction, entitled "By Seal and Sphere: A Treatise on Astral Magic". The heart of the work is comprised of twenty-two oracles, each of which is accompanied by a commentary and a unique Queen Scale sigil derived from the Work. The book also includes several illustrations by author-artist Barry William Hale of Fulgur Limited. Of interest to scholars of Thelema and practitioners of ceremonial magic, Gathering stands as an outre magical record of the Divinatory Art.
Robert Fitzgerald is a long-time practitioner of the angelic evocation of John Dee and Edward Kelley, and is an initiate of Cultus Sabbati, a magical order of traditional witchcraft in Britain and North America. His written contributions have appeared in the British journal of folklore The Cauldron. A Gathering of Masks is his first book with Three Hands Press.
A Gathering of Masks is 128 pages, octavo format, with three full-page illustrations and 22 magical diagrams. It is published by Three Hands Press in two editions:
- Standard. Hardcover cloth with letterpress dust jacket, limited to four hundred sixty-two copies.
- Deluxe. Full hand-grained goat with marbled papers and slipcase, limited to forty-four copies.
Gnosis 19: The Trickster. A Journal of the Western Inner Traditions
"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
first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company
we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with
that all-important business contact."
- Richard Smoley, from the introduction

Deconstructing Gurdjieff: Biography of a Spiritual Magician
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company
In November 1949, architect Frank Lloyd Wright announced the death of "the greatest man in the world," yet few knew who he was talking about. Enigmatic, misunderstood, declared a charlatan, and recently dubbed "the Rasputin who inspired Mary Poppins," Gurdjieff's life has become a legend. But who really was George Ivanovich Gurdjieff?
Employing the latest research and discoveries, including previously unpublished reminiscences of the real man, Tobias Churton investigates the truth beneath th...
Grimoire of the Baron Citadel: The Book of the Four Ways.
Three Hands Press
As the governor of the Dead and the burial ground, the Baron Samedi is one of the most distinctive and potent loa of Haitian Vodou. An imposing figure in black raiment, he is most often pictured as a corpse. His other magical domains, less discussed in esoteric literature, include disruption, obscenity and -- importantly for the practicing sorcerer -- not only the arts of Magic but the very fabric of which it is made.
Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...
