A contemporary reviewer for the Sheffield Daily Telegraph describes Crowley's work: "So far as we can understand the story, which is almost unintelligible, it is about a brother who seeks to found a new religion, of which his younger sister shall be the goddess, and, in order to achieve that end, stabs her and eats her heart. It is simply loathsome and horrible."
