One of the greatest and world famous writers of Dark Fiction, or Weird Fiction, or whatever the genre may be called across the planet, Richard Gavin, returns to the show. But while we talked exactly about that type of literature he writes, about his life and backround back then in Episode 9 of Season 5, this time the subject is his non-fiction writing, where he excells just as much – a rarity among writers.
“The Benigthed Path” was his first highly acclaimed publication with Theion Publishing a few years ago. Now, literally a couple of weeks ago (yes, this podcast tries to be as close to the authors and publishers as possible) another book by Richard was published by Theion: “The Infernal Masque”. It is kind of a sequel without really claiming to be just that. And by the way, “The Benighted Path” has also now just been republished in a second edition and will come out as an Auric Edition shortly.
Enjoy a great talk with an intelligent man after which you will see that the Left Hand Path and Ceremonial Magic are finally not far apart in their ideas, more in their means.
