“In the summer of 1951, Austin Osman Spare was invited by Michael Hall to submit an illustrated article for his bi-monthly publishing venture, The London Mystery Magazine.

Working together, Kenneth Grant and Austin Spare developed a potent formula of word and image that applied the process of the Death Posture to group ritual; specifically within the context of the Sabbatic tradition. Yet The Witches’ Sabbath proved too controversial for Hall and was never published in Spare’s lifetime.

Since this version of The Witches’ Sabbath first appeared in 1992, the publication of Zos Speaks! has documented in detail the creation of this important tract nearly 50 years after it was written. As a collaboration between two of the most influential minds of twentieth-century occultism, it presents a powerful evocation of Spare’s essential doctrine.”

Preface by Robert Ansell, with introductory essays by Ramsey Dukes and Gavin Semple. Two colour illustrations tipped-in. This 2007 deluxe edition takes remaining sheets from the 1992 Fulgur issue, adding new title page and deluxe bound in a strictly limited edition of 91. Signed and numbered by both Kenneth Grant and Steffi Grant.
