I would say that it's more focused on Gnosticism proper than Gnosis was, plus it's very much a small-press venture. Funnily enough, I just sent a comp copy to Richard Smoley today, ex-editor of Gnosis and one of my editors at Quest.

- The Gnostic #1 is being discounted by Amazon, selling at $10.80 instead of $12. It qualifies for super saver shipping, so is you buy $14.20 worth of other books you get free shipping.
I don't know how long the discounting will last.
