It was not the God of the Old Testament who created Adam from the things of the earth, but Lilith, the Queen of Hell and Mistress of Demons, and it was Lilith who visited Eve in the form of a wise serpent to free her from her prison of ignorance by feeding her the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge. Incorporated with the creation text is a complete Gnostic grimoire describing a potent system of sex magic by which Lilith may be summoned for erotic union.
Sex with Lilith is said to grant the magician certain occult gifts, leading ultimately to complete spiritual liberation.

A great read, combining many occult subjects and practices into the story of both a Gnostic grimoire and a contemporary journal of entries by a serious practitioner.
I don’t read much ‘fiction’ these days, but am glad I stumbled across this beauty from Starfire Publishing and Donald Tyson. There’s probably more contained in this book in regards to devotional yoga, godforms, invocation, gnosticism, ritual etc.
Mar 07, Dean rated it it was amazing. Oct 21, Diane Black rated it did not like it. This book was a lot of fun to read. It is a strange blend of fiction and fact An interesting literary experiment of creating a fictional story using the format of a classic grimoire with annotations.
This is not Donald Tyson’s first time creating this sort of fiction. He had already written his own take on the legendary “Necronomicon” about two years prior to this. But “Liber Lilith” is decidedly less fantastical and more rooted in the grimoire structures of say “The Sworn This book was a lot of fun to read. One that takes Gnosticism as its spiritual paradigm, and delves into the darker implications of the Demiurge.
Opinions on Liber Lilith?
The book is actually divided into three parts. Four if you count the introduction, that presents credible historical evidence of “Liber Lilith’s” provenance. The first consists of the grimoire “Liber Ronald itself, that has libed the trappings of authenticity. The second part of the book is the journal of Karl Steiger, the unfortunate occultist who discovered the grimoire and decided to put it into practice.
Steiger’s harrowing descent into madness at the hands of the spirit Lilith.
Liber Lilith : A Gnostic Grimoire
The third part consists of an analysis of both the grimoire proper and Steiger’s journal. And this is where Donald Tyson cleverly reveal the research behind this book, while at the same time adding to llilith air of authenticity.
All the parts work together to tell a great horror story in an unconventional way. Make no mistake, although there are real techniques of magick revealed through the story as in any work of occult fiction.
However, you would not want to put this grimoire into practice due to it’s dark and destructive nature.
