Qliphothic Wor(L)ds by Cort Williams: A Book Review

Qliphothic Wor(L)ds is a treatise on Black Magickal Alchemy, Luciferian Philosophy, Anti-Cosmic Theory, and Qliphothic Demonology succinctly conveyed in a manner most approachable to those lacking in knowledge of Qabbalah. Cort William’s strong grasp of Gematria, Qabbalah, and the Typhonian Tradition form the backbone of the knowledge presented therein.

The book opens with a series of desultory memoirs on the subjects mentioned above and proceeds to delve into the archdemons which reside within the Tunnels of Set. The traditional Qabbalistic correspondences of each demon are presented simply through a Luciferian Anti-Cosmic lens describing the connotations of various Hebrew letters, numbers, tarot cards, zodiac signs, Gematrial values, planets, and Qliphothic spheres. The segment exploring the Tunnels of Set is a treatise on the theory of Khaos-Gnostic Qabbalah. Little to no experience with or rituals to the demons appear in the text.

The mythos of Qayin, Tubal-Qayin, and Azazel are explored satisfactorily. The draconic aspects of Satan are analyzed numerologically and the Dukes and Kings of Edom are defined and contemplated in their basic connotations.

There is a brief contemplation of Lovecraftian magick which inconclusively speculates about parallels between it and Qliphothic sorcery. This entry is under-researched and under-contemplated, as there is abundant evidence available to the student that Lovecraftian magick is Satanic, Left-Handed, and Adversarial, and that the Necronomiconic Rites of Gate-Walking are Qliphothic in nature.

The text briefly delineates the aesthetic and praxis of the Order of the Ebon Spire and the philosophy of Titanic Satanism. The Qliphothic spheres Nahemoth (Black Earth/Nahema), Gamaliel (Black Moon/Lilith), Golohab (Mars/Asmodeus), and Gashkelah (Jupiter/Astaroth) are delineated in detail which exceeds most treatises on them.

Qliphothic Wor(L)ds is a very informative and helpful treatise on Anti-Cosmic Satanism which is approachable to persons who do not know much about it. While I must specify that the text contains no rituals and no magickal chants, the book is a must-read for those dedicated to Anti-Cosmic Satanism and Qliphothic Qabbalah. For those for whom these subjects are mere adjuncts to their paths, this text is helpful, but not not a must-read.
