    Very much a book of two halves, both of which are very thought provoking The lengthy introductory essay is worth the price in its own right, revealing why the Nightside is so very important It is very revealing about the nature of the Abyss and of human experience and psychology, challenging successfully many widely held opinions and slaughtering a sacred cow or two.The larger part of the book is taken up with a collection of startling illustrations which depict in pictorial form many of Fries own Nightside visions and meditational experiences These include images for each of the Tunnels of Set discussed in Kenneth Grant s writings, plus a great many relating to distinct phenomena experienced by Fries in his explorations The images are extremely evocative and full of motion Although I have not yet attempted this for myself, I can see the value of colouring them in, as suggested in the foreword by Mogg Morgan This would bring the images to life, make them intimately familiar, and highl...
