Series: Cthulhu Mythos
In this unclassifiable mix of Lovecraftian myth and Gurdjieffian philosophy, archaeologists discover ancient temples buried at impossibly fantastic depths. These discoveries- the import of which must be concealed from the public- are only the trigger to the discovery or rediscovery of how human approaches to cosmic consciousness have been thwarted since prehistoric times by beings from beyond our dimension. 'A great deal of fun for readers of Lovecraft, Ouspensky and G. I. Gurdjieff, and aficionados of off-the-fringe fiction in general.'

- The cover of the 1975 Oneiric Press edition (seen above if you're lucky) features fascinatingly ugly art by Chellis Glendinning, of all people.
