The author describes it thus: "The HekatŠon is, in essence, a Hymnal to Hekate: an ecstatic work dedicated to the Maiden-Serpent-Wolf, and manifested by her divine grace. Forged by the author's personal journey, this grimoire maps out a series of serpentine windings that lead the reader through a labyrinth of songs, spells, chants and invocations to the very throne of the Queen of Crossroads herself. Directly inspired by Mediterranean myth, classical literature, and the sorcerous workings of late antiquity (to include the Greek Magical Papyri and related material). The HekatŠon is a unique compendium that fearlessly sets forth a treasure-trove of magical and devotional tools by which the devotee may ally herself with the chthonic spirits that grant the power, protection, and gnosis of Hekate. The HekatŠon was created as an act of devotion, and is meant to be used as such. To that end it contains four sections which allow the Reader to enter Hekate's service by enlisting the aid of three spirit allies, creating nine sacred tools of art, learning the arcane meaning of Hekate's twenty-seven epithets, and accessing the latent powers of the titans, the dead, and the earth itself through the workings of thirty-three spells".
