Three Hands Press, a publishing arm of the Cultus Sabatai is announcing the limited release of The Moribund Portal by Richard Gavin, acclaimed master of modern supernatural horror and author of The Benighted Path. The publisher’s site says:
“In the first major examination of Gallows lore and magic, Gavin weaves together threads of folklore, spiritism, and occult philosophy to create a tapestry of grim vitality. The Moribund Portal: Spectral Resonance and the Numen of the Gallows examines the subtle yet potent symbiosis that exists between the incarnate world and the realm of the Dead. This book’s exploration of the liminal space between firmament and earth, where Odin perceived the runes and Christ witnessed the celestial kingdom, illuminates the macabre portal through which one may glimpse the Otherworld. Beyond its vulgar function as a means of execution, the Gallows has long served as a source of occult power. From the severed appendage of the thief that becomes the Hand of Glory, to the fallen seed that spawns the mandrake root, the Hanging Place is awash in the sinistral ambiance of ancient sorcery.
