Introduction To The “Deofel Quartet”
The works collected under the title “The Deofel Quartet” were written as instructional texts for
members of a Black Magick group. As such, they deal with certain esoteric matters relevant to
Novices and those who have begun to follow the path of Black Magick and Satanism.
While the form chosen is fictional, it is not that of a “conventional” novel. Instead, a new vehicle
was created with the aim of combining a fast (and thus entertaining) pace with a narrative style that
not only required the imaginative participation of the reader, but also sought to involve the
unconscious. Thus, detailed descriptions – of, for instance, characters and locations – are for the
most part omitted. It is left to the reader to supply such “missing details”: partly from their
imagination and partly unconsciously, from their own expectations and projections.
