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.
