The plays of Paul Green provide a crawling map of the modern occult. From the death rattle of Crowley, who also stalks a quailing Montague Summers’ dreams, through the tragedies of Jack Parsons and Graham Bond, to the snaking wires and interconnects of DJs, rappers and EVP hunters, he captures the sense of danger that the incursion of magick brings into human lives. The text at the heart of the collection, Babalon, is a stirring ritual recapitulation of the birth of Babalon in the modern era.

¶ Scarlet Imprint was founded in 2007 with the talismanic publication of 156 copies of The Red Goddess. We have established ourselves, in the following years, as one of the leading publishers of the contemporary occult world, with a progressive catalogue of books on the Western magical tradition, witchcraft, the African Diaspora religions, esoteric poetry & occulture.
Our work supports practising magicians, students of the occult arts, the esoteric community and the fine book arts. Our titles are notable for their erudition and scholarly standards, which are conjoined with the unique insight born of practice and experience. Furthermore, we are committed to presenting material with artistry and the highest standards of craft. All typography and design is done in house, with the aim of unfolding a modern and vital esoteric aesthetic that both manifests the numen of the book and contributes to the tradition of the fine book arts.
Our titles are available in limited standard hardbacks and fine editions, in conjunction with the unlimited Bibliothèque Rouge paperback editions. Email us with the subject line ‘subscribe’ if you wish to receive announcements of forthcoming titles, as well as pre-order of our standard & fine editions.
