Aleister Crowley:
Magick, Rock and Roll, and the Wickedest Man in the World
By Gary Lachman


This definitive work on the occult’s “great beast” traces the arc of his controversial life and influence on rock-and-roll giants, from the Rolling Stones to Led Zeppelin to Black Sabbath. When Aleister Crowley died in 1947, he was not an obvious contender for the most enduring pop-culture figure of the next century. But twenty years later, Crowley’s name and image were everywhere. The Beatles put him on the cover of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. The Rolling Stones were briefly serious devotees. Today, his visage hangs in goth clubs, occult temples, and college dorm rooms, and his methods of ceremonial magick animate the passions of myriad occultists and spiritual seekers. Aleister Crowley is more than just a biography of this compelling, controversial, and divisive figure—it’s also a portrait of his unparalleled influence on modern pop culture.

Overthrowing the Old Gods:
Aleister Crowley and the Book of the Law
By Don Webb


New commentaries on Aleister Crowley’s Book of the Law reveal how it is connected to both Right- and Left-Hand Paths. Received by Aleister Crowley in April 1904 in Cairo, Egypt, the Book of the Law is the most provocative record of magical working in several hundred years, affecting not only organizations directly associated with Crowley such as the Ordo Templi Orientis but also modern Wicca, Chaos Magic, and the Temple of Set. Boldly defying Crowley’s warning not to comment on the Book of the Law, Ipsissimus Don Webb provides in-depth interpretation from both Black and White Magical perspectives, including commentary from Dr. Michael A. Aquino, who served as High Priest of the Temple of Set from 1975 to 1996. Webb examines each line of the Book in the light of modern psychology, Egyptology, existentialism, and competing occult systems such as the teachings of G. I. Gurdjieff and contemporary Left-Hand Path thought. Discarding the common image of Crowley formulated in a spiritually unsophisticated time when the devotee of the Left-Hand Path was dismissed as a selfish evil doer, Webb unveils a new side of Crowley based on his adoption of the Loki archetype and his aim to become a vessel of love for all humanity. In so doing, he shows how the Book of the Law is connected to both Right- and Left-Hand Paths and reveals how Crowley’s magical path of mastery over the self and Cosmos overthrew the gods of old religion, which had kept humanity asleep to dream the nightmare of history. Providing in-depth analysis of Crowley’s sources and his self-identification with the First Beast of Revelation from a profound esoteric perspective, Webb takes his views out of the Golden Dawn matrix within which he received the Book of the Law and radically recasts the Cairo Working as a text of personal sovereignty and a relevant tool for personal transformation.

Aleister Crowley and the Temptation of Politics
By Marco Pasi


Aleister Crowley (1875-1947) is one of the most famous and significant authors in the history of western esotericism. Crowley has been long ignored by scholars of religion whilst the stories of magical and sexual practice which circulate about him continue to attract popular interest. "Aleister Crowley and the Temptation of Politics" looks at the man behind the myth - by setting him firmly within the politics of his time - and the development of his ideas through his extensive and extraordinarily varied writings. Crowley was a rationalist, sympathetic to the values of the Enlightenment, but also a romantic and a reactionary. His search for an alternative way to express his religious feelings led him to elaborate his own vision of social and political change. Crowley's complex politics led to his involvement with many key individuals, organisations and groups of his day - the secret service of various countries, the German Nazi party, Russian political activists, journalists and politicians of various persuasions, as well as other writers - both in Europe and America. "Aleister Crowley and the Temptation of Politics" presents a life of ideas, an examination of a man shaped by and shaping the politics of his times.

Aleister Crowley: The Beast in Berlin:
Art, Sex, and Magick in the Weimar Republic
By Tobias Churton


A biographical history of Aleister Crowley’s activities in Berlin from 1930 to 1932 as Hitler was rising to power. Gnostic poet, painter, writer, and magician Aleister Crowley arrived in Berlin on April 18, 1930. As prophet of his syncretic religion Thelema, he wanted to be among the leaders of art and thought, and Berlin, the liberated future-gazing metropolis, wanted him. There he would live, until his hurried departure on June 22, 1932, as Hitler was rapidly rising to power and the black curtain of intolerance came down upon the city. Drawing on previously unpublished letters and diary material by Crowley, Tobias Churton examines Crowley’s years in Berlin and his intense focus on his art, his work as a spy for British Intelligence, his colorful love life and sex magick exploits, and his contacts with German Theosophy, Freemasonry, and magical orders. He recounts the fates of Crowley’s colleagues under the Nazis as well as what happened to Crowley’s lost art exhibition--six crates of paintings left behind in Germany as the Gestapo was closing in. Revealing the real Crowley long hidden from the historical record, Churton presents "the Beast" anew in all his ambiguous and, for some, terrifying glory, at a blazing, seminal moment in the history of the world.

In 1904, The Book of the Law declared the advent of a new period in the course of human history - The Aeon of Horus or Aeon of the Child.

Secret Agent 666:
Aleister Crowley, British Intelligence and the Occult
By Richard B. Spence (Feral House)


Aleister Crowley is best known today as a founding father of modern occultism. His wide, hypnotic eyes peer at us from the cover of The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, and his influence can be found everywhere in popular culture. Crowley, also known as the Great Beast, has been the subject of several biographies, some painting him as a misunderstood genius, others as a manipulative charlatan. None of them have looked seriously at his career as an agent of British Intelligence. Using documents gleaned from British, American, French, and Italian archives, Secret Agent 666 sensationally reveals that Crowley played a major role in the sinking of the Lusitania, a plot to overthrow the government of Spain, the thwarting of Irish and Indian nationalist conspiracies, and the 1941 flight of Rudolf Hess. Author Richard B. Spence argues that Crowley-in his own unconventional way-was a patriotic Englishman who endured years of public vilification in part to mask his role as a secret agent. The verification of the Great Beast's participation in the twentieth century's most astounding government plots will likely blow the minds of history buff s and occult aficionados alike.

Aleister Crowley: A Modern Master
By John Moore


Aleister Crowley's appeal on the level of popular culture has been well catered for by a number of biographies that have appeared in recent years, but the more intellectual side to him, which is equally fascinating, has not received so much serious treatment. "Crowley, a Modern Master" is neither an account of his life, nor a straightforward presentation of his teaching, but an attempt to place him clearly in the context of modern ideas as well as a number of older traditions.

Aleister Crowley:
The Beast Demystified
By Roger Hutchinson


Now in Paperback- Aleister Crowley - mystic, writer, poet, astrologer, sexual revolutionary, painter, mountain climber and social critic - has a terrifying reputation. The contemporary press labelled him the "wickedest man in the world", while he called himself the 'great beast'. Occultist Crowley supported Germany in the First World War and was addicted to opiates. Many who associated with him died tragically in mysterious circumstances. Working from the starting point that behind the demonic reputation there stood a human being, and that beyond the self-proclaimed black magician there was a man hungry for publicity and fame, Roger Hutchinson lifts the smokescreen of mythology to reveal a truly astonishing figure. Why did this curious product of the Plymouth Brethren found the "first hippy commune" in Sicily? What led this Cambridge graduate to be celebrated 20 years after his death on the cover of The Beatles' Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album? Why did Mussolini expel him from Italy? Why did a British magazine label him 'the man we'd like to hang'? Roger Hutchinson reveals the real Crowley: warts, wickedness, talent, courage, cowardice and all.

Aleister Crowley And the Practice of the Magical Diary
Edited By James Wasserman


This important collection includes Aleister Crowley's two most important instructional writings on the design and purpose of the magical diary, 'John St. John' and 'A Master of the Temple'. These were the only two works regarding the magical diary published in Crowley's lifetime. Both were first published in Crowley's immense collection of magical instruction, The Equinox. John St. John chronicles Crowley's moment by moment progress during a 13-day magical working. Crowley referred to it as "a perfect model of what a magical record should be." 'A Master of the Temple' is taken from the magical diary of Frater Achad at a time when he was Crowley's most valued and successful student. It provides an invaluable example of a student's record, plus direct commentary and instruction added by Crowley. With commentary and introductory material by editor James Wasserman, Aleister Crowley and the Practice of the Magical Diary is the most important and accessible instruction available to students of the occult regarding the practice of keeping a magical diary. This revised edition includes a new introduction by Wasserman, a foreword by noted occult scholar J. Daniel Gunther, revisions throughout the text, a revised reading list for further study, plus Crowley's instructions on banishing from Liber O.

Aleister Crowley and the Ouija Board
By J. Edward Cornelius


Reveals many dark secrets and protected truths about the talking board. Complete with the 20th century's most famous magician's writings on the Ouija Board. For decades, waves of preachers, teachers and parents have condemned the Ouija Board as a devil's gateway to perilous obsessions and spiritual possessions. While these claims recall a special brand of witch-trial era hysteria, master occultist and Crowley expert, author J. Edward Cornelius defends these accusations as entirely true. The greatest ceremonial magician of the 20th century, Crowley advocated the Ouija Board as an occult tool. He strongly believed that the board utilises the same principles that were practiced by the famed Elizabethan magician John Dee, who used a crystal ball as a means of "skrying" or seeing into the invisible realms. According to Crowley the same principle holds true for the talking board but, instead of going within the invisible realms, the entities are summoned into our world in order for them to move the triangle from one letter to another to spell out messages.

Blue Equinox
Equinox, Vol.III, No.I
By Aleister Crowley


NEW EDITION! First published in Detroit in 1919, the legendary Blue Equinox was Crowley's first attempt to publicize the principles and aims of the magical secret society Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.) and its allied order the A.A. In it, Crowley laid out the esoteric, social, ethical, and philosophical ideas that he believed provided the framework for a new ethics and the liberated morality of the future. Upon publication, the book was threatened with suppression by the authorities of the day. Many of the papers in the Blue Equinox anticipated social liberties we tend to take for granted today.

Abrahadabra:
Understanding Aleister Crowley's Thelemic Magick
By Rodney Orpheus


Thelemic magick, as it is practiced today, is based on the works of Aleister Crowley. Those works can be dense, and Crowley's suggested course of study intimidating to beginners. In Abrahadabra, Rodney Orpheus offers a much simpler and more immediate path for working with the same magical current Crowley used. His approach is grounded in practice—you don't need to read tomes before you begin to meditate and participate in rituals and practical exercises and manifestations. Abrahadabra is a perfect primer for anyone who is curious to know what magick is all about, but it is also a wonderful sourcework for those looking to augment their own Wiccan or pagan practice with ritual magick or who seek a deeper understanding of Crowley's classic works.

It was while in India that Fuller first contacted Aleister Crowley, writer, magician and notorious self-publicist. He saw an advertisement offering £100 for the best essay on Crowley's works published in the "Traveller's Edition", and "on its arrival, I decided to try my luck". Such were the origins of Fuller's first book, The Star in the West. Fuller won Crowley's prize and the two men became fast friends. J. F. C. Fuller was a follower of Aleister Crowley as well as an innovator of military maneuvers and tank warfare in World War II. Major General Fuller was one of the foremost military historians of the 20th century, and the author of many books, including A Military History of the Western World.

Aleister Crowley and the Cult of Pan
By Michael Murphy


Few more nightmarish figures stalk English literature than Aleister Crowley, poet, magician, mountaineer and agent provocateur. In this groundbreaking study, Paul Newman dives into the occult mire of Crowley's works and fishes out gems and grotesqueries that are by turns ethereal, sublime, pornographic and horrifying. Like Oscar Wilde before him, Crowley stood in "symbolic relationship to his age" and to contempories like Rupert Brooke, G.K. Chesterton and the Portugese modernist Fernando Pessoa. An influential exponent of the cult of the great god Pan, his essentially 'pagan' outlook was shared by major European writers as well as English novelists like E.M. Forster, D.H. Lawrence and Arthur Machen. This book provides a new insight into Crowley's life as a magician and literary figure. identifies and gives an analysis of Crowley's poetry. Places him to the context of Edwardian Britain's addiction to the cult of Pan.

Megatherion:
The Magical World of Aleister Crowley
By Francis King


Aleister Crowley has been seen variously as a man of notorious sexual habits, a satanic occultist, and latterly an icon of the 1960s love generation. He was the synthesizer of what he termed "Magick," a system of occult philosophy and technique outlined in such classic texts as The Book of the Law and Magick in Theory and Practice. Crowley's vision combined clarity, intellectual power,and a strange, sometimes frightening beauty. In this cogent and intensely readable account of Crowley's occult progress, Francis King examines each of the three main sources of Magick - thus throwing much new light on Crowley himself and explaining the admiration for his writings by the likes of filmmaker Kenneth Anger and Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page.

Magick of Aleister Crowley:
Rituals of Thelema
By Lon Milo Duquette


Aleister Crowley's impact upon Western spiritual tradition is incalculable, yet beginning students frequently find it difficult, if not impossible, to grasp the post-graduate level of Crowley's writing. Now Crowley scholar Lon Milo DuQuette shares the insights of over twenty years of research and practice in what can be described as a "Crowley primer".

Understanding Aleister Crowley's Thoth Tarot:
By Lon Milo Duquette


To authoritatively discuss the Harris-Crowley Thoth Tarot, one must not only be a Crowley expert, but a tarot expert as well. Lon Milo DuQuette is both. For over 30 years he has studied and practiced Crowley's magical system. He is also a Certified Tarot Grand Master and creator of the Tarot of Ceremonial Magick. Crowley's own Book of Thoth, written just before his death, was intended to be the accompanying text to the deck, but while the cards can be appreciated the moment they are taken out of the box, the Book of Thoth requires an intimate familiarity with Crowley's complex teachings. What has been missing, and what DuQuette has created, is an introductory text for the deck. In clear and often humorous language he provides everything you need to know about Crowley's fundamental principles to get the most out of using the deck. He starts with the basic background of the deck before delving into descrptions of each card in depth. Each card is described in detail regarding it's traditional tarot meaning, which is then expanded upon with all the other attributions Crowley intended.

Unknown God:
W.T. Smith and the Thelemites


The first documentary study of Aleister Crowley's contemporary followers in North America, told through the life of their de facto leader, Wilfred Talbot Smith. Smith met Charles Stansfeld Jones (Frater Achad) and through him, the works of Aleister Crowley. Although Crowley and Smith met only once, their twenty year correspondence proved to be a major link to the few and the faithful attracted to Crowley's work in the US and Canada. Smith's spiritual life centered first on the initiatic structure of the Order of the A.A., complemented by the emerging fraternal and social schemes of the Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO). To promulgate the Crowleyan teachings, in 1934 Smith incorporated his own "Church of Thelema". The following year he initiated OTO activity in Los Angeles which attracted its own cast of occult characters. Smith's life reached a strange conclusion when Crowley sent him off on a retreat to determine which God he was incarnating. It was a journey from which Frater 132 never returned. This is a fascinating story, intimately interwoven with the lives of most of Crowley's disciples in the US including C.F. Russell, Jane Wolfe, Max R. Schneider, Jack Parsons, Louis T. Culling, Frederic Mellinger and Grady L. McMurtry as well as occult teachers like H. Spencer Lewis (AMORC) and Paul Foster Case (BOTA).

The General Principles of Astrology
By Aleister Crowley and Evangeline Adams


This first full-scale reconstruction of his essential text has waited 85 years to appear as he originally intended it. Long before there was Linda Goodman, long before astrology bestsellers turned up in supermarkets, there was Aleister Crowley, the most important astrological scholar and authority of the early 20th century. Ghostwriting for Evangeline Adams, it was Crowley who wrote the vast majority of her classic textbooks, Astrology: Your Place in the Sun (1927) and Astrology: Your Place Among the Stars (1930). General Principles of Astrology finally acknowledges Crowley's authorship. Crowley's goal was to abandon traditional assumptions, so he based his findings on actual charts and how they were expressed in people's lives. In his characteristically clear and elegant prose, Crowley discusses each planet from a scientific and mythological point of view. He provides an exhaustive analysis of astrological types, drawing conclusions for over 180 astrological nativities of well-known artists, poets, musicians, philosophers, politicians, and business leaders from the 18th to the 20th century. This new book is composed of painstakingly gathered work, primarily ghostwritten by Crowley, and published in various early twentieth-century texts. It is published here in one volume for the first time, in an undertaking endorsed by both the Adams and Crowley estates.

Perdurabo:
The Life of Aleister Crowley
By Richard Kaczynski


Aleister Crowley, born in Victorian England to a life of financial privilege and religious bigotry, rebelled against his upbringing in every way possible. He became a mountaineer, a bohemian, a writer of sensuous poetry, and a practitioner of what detractors called "the black arts." In reality, he was an uninhibited explorer of global spiritual traditions combining ritual magic with spiritual ecstasy. His winding path intersected ceremonial magic, Buddhism, Hinduism, Kabbalah, sex, drugs, poetry and music. For the first time, the life of one of the most remarkable men of the 20th century is illuminated by a writer who is both an academic researcher and a lifetime practitioner.
