Church of Satan Sigil of Baphomet

Harry O. Morris: Artist’s Portfolio An utterly exquisite compendium of the magical imagery of Harry O. Morris. This hardcover volume makes for a codex tenebrarum of Morris’ visionary surrealism, assembled in a handsomely wrought book. Aficionados of elegantly rendered surrealist vistas will treasure this comprehensive assembly of work by this major artist.  Collected within are images wrought for our own publications GRUE, NARCOPOLIS, as well as THE BLACK FLAME, for which he crafted a haunting portrait of Anton Szandor LaVey.

That’s both impractical and unnecessarily breaks the audience’s engagement with their work. Also question demands from hypersensitive critics who believe all perspectives need to be represented equally at all times, regardless of the creative intent of the creator.  —Reverend Raul Antony
