Khiazmos articulates the paradoxical arcanum of Opposition—an essential dynamic force of Sabbatic Witchcraft—which animates the Art of Magic itself, through aphoristic formulae. Like the mystical formats of the riddle, parable, and koan, the book utilises strategies of arcane, recursive exposition to embody transcendent truths about magic, the spirit world, the stance of the sorcerer, and the Sabbat of the Witches. The living book, as conceived in the Vision of the Scribe, possessed the power to transcend its material corpus, and simultaneously wrote and unwrote itself as it was read, creating the titular absence of pages. The magical insights expressed through the various modalities of the book are borne of dream and the contemplative nexus informing the stance in the midst of the cross-ways, the projection of the Sorcerous I beyond the point at the Circles heart. In accord with the great magico-literary corpus of the Sabbatic Tradition, Khiazmos resounds with the voice of its author, in Speech and Silence, in Image and Sigil. The book is 88 pages, printed on heavy stock, with ten automatic drawings by the Author in full colour, and featuring an Afterword by Frater A.H.I. and Soror I.S. of the Cultus Sabbati.
