THE BOOK OF THE HORNED ONE: A GATE OF PAN MAGICK 
By Aion 131 (Author), Orryelle Defenestrate-Bascule (Illustrator)
Hardcover: 340 pages
Publisher: Concrescent Press (May 1, 2012)
List Price: $39.95

FROM THE BACK COVER:
“For me, the most fundamental path, the most primal path, is that of the beginning, the Nameless (before speech), the Infinite (before time), The One who is All and None. There is no name for this, no label for the wild stirrings that fill and inform my mind, heart and body-so I call it Pan. In this way, it has a presence, a body, a focus, a BEING, and so in this way I have been able to converse with, play with, make love with, consume and be consumed by the primal wilderness archetype that fills me, one that is truer than all other illusions. Through a mask, the unnamable is approachable, and Pan is the ultimate mask of endless contradictions united, of seeing the divine in One, in All and in None -all at once.
This book and its extremely loose and flexible system of magick (Called here 'Pan Magick' for want of a better name) is an intensely personal project. Let there be no doubt that it is an original system that draws from many wells, birthed from my interface with 'Pan'. At the peak moments of this dance, like when "The Book of Gate" came to me, 'I' was quite absent. Still, here 'I' am and It seems a whole crew of 'me’s' is penning this book and all are, of course, mere illusions and refractions. The act of somehow piecing together notes and rites and somewhat inchoate scribblings from 30 years worth of practice has me wondering what I'm doing. But The Great Pan has laughed and beckons me on and urges me to get it together and get it out there, so away we go.”
