Synopsis for "The Stars are but Thistles"Edit

Barbara and Sophie fall into the Abyss and arrive at Daath. They encounter Aleister Crowley, who's in female form and riding a camel. After a brief conversation, the two continue their journey searching for Barbara's husband, Steve. They come upon a black tower and find a younger version of Austin Osman Spare, but he doesn't remember them. Spare informs them that they are traveling through "the dreadful absence, a crack in everything." Barbara and Sophie began to understand that they're intellectually, emotionally and spiritually lost. They then witness Aleister Crowley, now as a male, summoning Choronzon and then suddenly the two disintegrate and wind up at Binah.
