Abstract or Description

This article examines the significance of the category of the ‘demonic’ as applied within the theory and practice of ‘Lovecraftian’ magick: a ‘style’ of magical practice inspired by the fictional universe of the ‘Cthulhu mythos’ created by the author H. P. Lovecraft, and popularised within certain sectors of the contemporary Euro-American magical subculture.
