The Trident 16

The Trident No. 16
$5.00 USA / $6.00 foreign

Just in time for Halloween, this issue is appropriately themed around death, in all of its manifestations, including burial sites, pre-planning for excarnation, the positive aspects and results of catastophe, the Museum of Funeral Customs in Springfield. Illinois, review of a great book on Satanic Artist Markus Meyer, and film reviews of Ed Gein and The Village. Also included is the Dear Abbey Brimstone column asking the compelling question "How Do You Sign A Life Away?", and an intriguing interview with Necro-Sculptor Owen Leitch. And again, the cover features the splendid artistry of Selene, displaying Infernal Progeny enjoying the company of a new playmate. A great issue to curl up with in the gloom of one's study, complimenting the 'spirit' of the season.

By Draconis Blackthorne

A cold familiar chill cascades from the West
The rictus of the Jack 'O' Lantern glows through the night
Sweet dreams of archetypal splendor greets smiles and fright
As children laugh and play with Trick or Treat delight
'Neath the pall of the Grim One's sight...

The skeletal trees athrust to the sky
Leaves blown by the wind of the whispering breeze
The House there stands vacant, or so it seems
Then who's are the eyes that peer through the beams?

Devil Moon nigh, peers from on high
Flooding the earth with blue-crimson light
Vampires and Werewolves arise for a "bite"
Nightmares alive in glory and might!

Black candles a-shimmer in the beautious gloom
The shadows take shape in the depths of your room
The demons, the devils, the ghouls and the ghosts
The Gates are cast open, we welcome the hosts
Our brothers and sisters from Hellish Abodes
By thunder and lightning, the ravens have flown...

The Sabbath bell calls through black haunted halls
Baphomet's smile in daemonic guile
By Satan, Lucifer descends Leviathan to Belial
Looming spechtrous by words of Spell
Lingering shades, All Hallow's Eve
By what was spoken, shall soon be reaped
In pleasure, in passion, in feral grace
Halloween's wonders, come take thy place!
