SERPENTINE SUPPLICATIONS is a collection of weird, occult and decadent prose and poetry by Stephan Friedman. It is a first complete edition of Friedman’s works to date. The short stories and poems are permeated with the sense of the otherworldly and the grotesque, bouncing between autobiographical reality and ethereal dimensions. Like a deranged and obscure grandson of Aleister Crowley and Gustav Meyrink, Friedman will take you on a journey to Jerusalem, Prague, Paris and Sighișoara, imaginary black cities and fantastic lands, featuring a strange ophidian cult, witches, goths, vampires, William Blake, Emil Cioran and Antonin Artaud.

Lavishly printed by Mount Abraxas Press, the book is a highly worthy addition to any serious library of Occult Literature.
