Robert Podgurski, author of The Sacred Alignments and Sigils: Angelic Magick, Renaissance Thought, and Modern Methods of Sigilization, has written a very thoughtful review of my book of esotericism, The Benighted Path: Primeval Gnosis & the Monstrous Soul (Theion Publishing, 2015).

A sample of the review:

"A purely linear or diachronic reading ofBP does the study and oneself a great disservice. Gavin’s work is highly discursive and winds about with subconsciously articulated convolutions in and upon itself constantly pushing the reader’s sense of contiguity to its limits. The work is purposefully suggestive and allusive." 

I am grateful to Mr. Podgurski for taking the time to not only read this particular work of mine but also to share his insights as to its ethos. The full review may be viewed here.

Copies of The Benighted Path (of which only a few remain) may be ordered here.
