Egypt, 8000 years ago. The gods walk among men as titans, powerful beings with passions that move mountains, fix stars in the heavens, and master the forces of life and death. Within this world, the... More > evil god Set betrays and murders his brother Osiris, king of rich and respected Abydos.

Several... More > stories deal candidly (for the day) with sexual themes from The Yellow Ticket (prostitution in Moscow) to A Miracle and No Wonder which is little more than a very long and protracted dirty joke.

Virgin of the World.
THE mystic title of the celebrated Hermetic fragment with which this volume commences, "Koré Kosmou" that is, the "Kosmic Virgin," is in itself a...

Koré is the name by which, in the Eleusinian Mysteries, Persephone the Daughter, or Maiden, was saluted; and it is also--perhaps only by coincidence--the Greek word for the pupil or apple of the eye.
