About this Item

First edition, Hardcover, SIGNED (card), Limited, New in dust jacket, Oh boy! Yes, Ex Occidente has a new book that's just out: THE EXALTATION OF THE MINOTAUR by Damian Murphy. This title is the first in a new imprint from Ex Occident: Mount Abraxas. New trim size too, slightly oversize. I'll call it royal octavo or maybe imperial octavo. Let's see, there's a velum-like substance used for the cover material and a blind stamp on same. Quality paper and heavy-stock dust jacket material, headbands, footboards and marking ribbon. In short, the works. Our copies will ship with a card, signed by the author, laid in. By complex rites and protocols both infernal and divine, by fervent prayer and countless sleepless nights, by the recitation of venerable hymns, by subtle blasphemies, by outright lies, by mirrors placed at inconspicuous angles, by the provocation of destiny and by the steady application of blind luck may the contentious beast of Knossos be exalted. Care must be taken, precaution must be observed, for the process, once begun, is irreversible. When the heights of exaltation have been reached, heaven itself cannot contain the beast. The ancient wine of prophecy will overflow its chosen vessels and inundate the houses of the blessed and the damned.The Exaltation of the Minotaur is partially revealed over the course of three lengthy narratives, stories steeped in complex rites and ceremonies, oracular automatons, and the treacherous perils of diplomacy. The Ivory Sovereign follows the tangled fate of a ruined professor as he plunges ever further into the impossible depths of a carnivalesque attraction. A bureaucrat, a woman of noble descent, and two insatiable occultists are drawn into to an inexorable unveiling of the minutia of providence in An Incident in the House of Destiny. The Hieromantic Mirror reveals strategies impenetrable and obscure within the procedures and formalities of a consulate. Bookseller Inventory # 57493
