Long story!   Started out as the third book of a concept trilogy that
began with "Time of the Hawklords" and "Queen of Deleria".   It was
never completed in book form by the original author (mercifully, some
would say - and I include myself) however a graphic novel with that
title compiled by Bob Walker was issued with the "Hawkwind - 25 years
on" CD box set wherein Hawkwind disappear and Nik Turner, buys a book of
arcane knowledge in Edinburgh after playing a gig up here (the artist
depicts it as raining - why is that?) to assist with their reappearance.

Back in the 80s Hawkwind were talking about doing a stage show with
a Ledge of Darkness format but it never happened and I guess the idea
never entirely went away.

Can you give a track listing for this?   Folk keep noticing the title
and the assumption so far (I think) is that it's a mis-titling for
Alien4 but if you could list the tracks that would confirm it one way or
