Black Sun (Sol Niger) was one of the best-kept secrets in alchemy, for it was considered a source of great transformational power. Basically a symbol of unconscious energy, it is a paradoxical and "negative" image that has rarely been dealt with in Western culture.

Marlan draws on a wide variety of sources. Highly recommended.
