Including The Book of Azrael and The View from the Bridge, this title also contains selections from The Necromantic Ritual Book, Shadows in the Half-Light, and treatises from Infinite Possibilities. This edition of 'Our Name is Melancholy' has been revised, re-edited and expanded to include an all-new Book 3 and 4 as well as additions to the original manuscript. Readers and reviewers hailed the First Edition of this book as: the most fascinating book of the 20th century. It sparked a subtle revolution in the way we deal with death in general, and Death the entity. It brought us up close and personal with the melancholy spectre commonly known as the Grim Reaper. The book's aim is to bring humanity to a greater understanding of His purpose here, and hereafter. Through the Angel of Death's own words and the writings of His incarnate soul mate, this awesome spirit reveals to all His true nature and purpose. A haunting 'autobiography' of the Angel of Death, this revelationary testament is both mighty in sorrow, and joy. Azrael is an eerie herald who has come to enchant the world with a divine danse macabre. For the ultimate tale of Love and Death is, indeed, a True Story.
