    From the personal collection of Michael W. Ford: 

    Note: This book, obtained by Michael in 1998, contains the "Witches", "Hecate Oak" and "The Vampires are Coming"; utilized as focus/sigil points for "The Nightravener" (Ford's witch cult magical name within a UK witchcraft collective that was given to him) in his Zos Kia Cultus / Witchcraft Sabbat workings that fueled core aspects of the later Luciferian Witchcraft coven in Houston a few years later. 

    Zos Speaks!

    Edited by Kenneth and Steffi Grant

    Over fifty years ago, Kenneth and Steffi Grant met the artist Austin Osman Spare. A mutual passion for weird art brought them together at a time when Spare, in the final decade of his life, had turned again to writing about his other passion – the occult. Zos Speaks! is an account of their meetings with Spare. In addition to the numerous letters and diary entries from the period this book also contains Spare’s last great literary works: The Logomachy, The Zoetic Grimoire and The Living Word. Here may be found a unique insight into Spare’s method of working with familiar spirits, “Delphic Oracles” and other strange formulae, including the legendary Witches’ Sabbath that Zos claimed to have attended on many occasions.

    Compiled from the correspondence, diary entries, magical manuscripts, drawings and other works bequeathed by the artist to Kenneth and Steffi Grant in 1956, Zos Speaks! remains the essential source for students of Austin Osman Spare.
