Purchase Nine Keys of Abyssal Darkness
Nine Keys of Abyssal Darkness is available for purchase in paperback, ebook, and hardcover formats.
Note: due to delays with Ingramspark’s processes and other such factors, only the hardcover is currently available outside of Amazon. I will post additional options here once the approval processes are complete.
Plans are underway to make a small number of physical copies of Nine Keys of Abyssal Darkness available at select stores in the author’s hometown. If you are in Calgary, AB, Canada, and are interested in obtaining the book this way, please use the contact form on this website to inform T. L. Othaos, so that I can ensure that local retailers still have stock. Locations which I make arrangements with will be listed here once I confirm availability.
Back cover description of Nine Keys of Abyssal Darkness
What is Satanism? Infamous members of the Order of Nine Angles (O9A) have answered this question with fascist ideology and acts of terrorism.
The conviction of T. L. Othaos, however, is that the extremism and violence associated with O9A can be stripped away to reveal an underlying core of authentic Satanic belief and practice. This includes a life-affirming ethos, potent occult techniques, and a pantheon of Dark Gods and Goddesses who crave a better quality of human ally than O9A has thus far attracted.
Othaos has founded the religion of Tenebrous Satanism in order to combine the most compelling components of O9A esotericism with an explicit emphasis on human flourishing, critical thinking, and personal excellence. In Nine Keys of Abyssal Darkness, she answers such questions as:
- Who is Satan and what mythological narratives inspire Satanists to conceptualize him as a constructive adversarial figure?
- Who are Satanism’s enemies in the religious and political spheres and what must Satanists do to defeat them?
- What personal qualities must the Satanist cultivate to maximize their flourishing on both the earthly and spiritual levels?
- What disturbing acausal realities lurk behind our familiar causal world and why do all other religions deny these dark truths?
- What methods of meditation, divination, and ritual magick enable the Satanist to harness and unleash the powers of Darkness?
- Who are the Nekalah and what can the Satanist gain by forging an alliance with O9A’s sinister deities of the Abyss?
Rejecting the worst tendencies of O9A while still embracing the most alluringly dangerous aspects of Niner spirituality, Nine Keys of Abyssal Darkness defines Satanism as a religion of willful self-evolution, intelligent revolt against the status quo, fearless confrontation with cosmic horror, and uncompromising pursuit of creative strife.
