¶ A highly blasphemous work concerning hagiography and necrophilia, published by Ex Occident Press in 2012 under a spurious imprint. While the limitation is stated to be 100 copies, the book was suppressed and Withdrawn From Sale upon publication; only a very few early copies were actually distributed. A fascinating book which "mixes religion, faith, obscurantism, superstition and decadent erotism in a unique cocktail."
