AN AGE FOR LUCIFER: Predatory Spirituality and the Quest for Godhood.
Holmes Publishing Group, 1999. A FINE NEW COPY. This work explores a fascinating and dark thesis: there is a birth of a new human type gathering momentum and its goal is the ultimate in human potential, godhood. But will it be that bright and shining New Age so eagerly awaited? Will it follow the hopes of its prophets? Or does this new creature contain the seeds of predation, possession, devouring and violence? The Luciferan (please note that Mr. Tucker's use of the term "Luciferan" is tied to no group, form of magick, or personage, but is symbolic of a general philosophy) is a seeker of powaqqatsi - Po-waq-qa-tsi is derived from the Hopi words powaq, sorcerer and qatsi, life. Luciferism exposes the use of predatory techniques to achieve personal godhood, and the purpose of this book is to render this opaque statement clear, and to translate Luciferism into contemporary meaning as horizontal evil. Mr. Tucker skillfully weaves a diversity of philosophies and psychologies into a picture that is both a frightening warning, and a melancholy sigh. Sewn, archival paper edition. Royal octavo. 384 pages. Bibliography. (Item ID: H-408-2)
