Ibis Press announced the release of a new novel from writer Peter Lavenda, a crucial figure of the New York occult revival scene of the 1970s and acquaintance of the folks who helped re-activate Ordo Templi Orientis at that time. The publisher’s site exclaims:
“An awesome novel! Part Two of Lovecraft Trilogy from Peter Levenda and Ibis Press. Jacket art by Konnie Mutter-Cintron once again. Ready for shipping!
“This is the second volume of Peter Levenda’s Lovecraft Trilogy. Following The Lovecraft Code, Levenda here probes deeper into the mysteries of Professor Gregory Angell, Yezidi seeress Jamilia, and Detective Cuneo of post-Katrina New Orleans.
“All are fighting the nightmare denizens of a terror cell desperately seeking The Necronomicon, as well as a top secret US government intelligence agency. This book will thrill ancient aliens fans, Lovecraft aficionados, all readers who enjoy well-crafted fiction.
“It is supported by genuine scholarship among occultists, terrorists, military leaders and intelligence agents. Based on the themes in H. P. Lovecraft’s The Dunwich Horror, this novel continues the earlier depiction of a struggle between two forces: not of Light versus Darkness—but of Us versus Them.
“What secret is buried so deeply within human DNA that exposing its mysteries would serve only to undermine humanity’s most cherished institutions? And what secret is encoded within an ancient book of magic that, once deciphered, would cause the eruption of a force so prehistoric that its earthly temples—once submerged beneath the seas—will rise to the surface once again?”
