I think there are valid conderns regarding the authors omissions and misunderstandings regarding the connectivity between many of the Symbolist artists and Peladan's organizations. the Taxil hoax, and the difference between a Satanist and a Luciferian. I think there are some reasonable expectation that an author writing about Parisian Satanism would understand the difference between a Luciferian, Satanist, and a Palladist (Even Umberto Eco manages a clever joke on this distinction in Foucalt's Pendulum). These add up to a few grave errors which erodes my confidence in the book.
That said, its still on my "to buy as a used book" list :) And holy crap, that photo! Love it!
