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.

Living Thelema: A Practical Guide to Attainment in Aleister Crowley's System of Magick
By David Shoemaker


The system of spiritual attainment developed by Aleister Crowley is notoriously challenging in its scope. Adapted from the popular podcast segment of the same name, Living Thelema brings a welcome approachability to Crowley's material, without diminishing the depth of the system. The author focuses on the practical and experiential aspects of the path of Thelema, allowing the reader to grasp the true transformative power of the system. Beginners and advanced practitioners alike will find much useful advice here, as Shoemaker brings his characteristic down-to-earth style to bear on topics such as ritual and meditation practices, sex magick, astral projection, psychotherapy for magicians, the Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel, and that pinnacle of attainment known as the crossing of the Abyss. The author's background as a practicing psychotherapist allows an entirely unique fusion of esoteric wisdom and cognitive science. Living Thelema is an invaluable handbook for any modern magician.

The Heretic's Guide to Thelema Volume 2 & 3:
New Aeon English Qaballa - The Ethics of Thelema
By Gerald del Campo


This is volume 2 and 3 of a new edition of a now classic work from a long-time practitioner of Thelema. It is a expression of his experience in a variety of forms of Thelema and a number of Thelemic institutions. Some will object, and thelemically, they are welcome to do so. But the Magi have always learned from Nature and so we must note that although Nature abhors a vacuum, She hates monocultures: She always and only destroys them. Variety and diversity only will strengthen the current of Thelema. As it is said: Success is your proof. Volume 2: New Aeon English Qaballa first appeared in 2000 and since then it has opened up the way to serious research into the mysteries of The Book of the Law by suggesting a non-Crowleyan solution to one of the most profound mysteries in one of the most profound books of our age. Volume 3: The Ethics of Thelema, was also penned in 2000 out of the author's desire to share his ethical values as a Thelemite, not with dogma or orthodoxy but how Thelema is working through him as a Thelemite, in the hope that Thelema might be able to explain not only what was wrong with our values, but what values we should consider to prevent looming catastrophe.

The Heretic's Guide to Thelema Volume 1:
New Aeon Magick
By Gerald del Campo


The Heretic's Guide to Thelema Volume 1: New Aeon Magick In your hands is a new edition of a now classic work from a long-time practitioner of Thelema. It is a expression of his experience in a variety of forms of Thelema and a number of Thelemic institutions. First written as an explanation for the author's young children, this recently corrected and improved version is a unique presentation of Thelema as it is actually lived. It is valuable to us all not because it is right, or orthodox, or for any other reason but that is IS. Thelema needs every form itself to be manifest in order for its full potential to be realized. Some will object, and thelemically, they are welcome to do so. But the Magi have always learned from Nature and so we must note that although Nature abhors a vacuum, She hates monocultures: She always and only destroys them. Variety and diversity only will strengthen the current of Thelema. As it is said: Success is your proof. Gerald Enrique del Campo is a poet, musician, songwriter, photographer, magician, philosopher, author, and lecturer on occult and religious topics. He was a member of the O.T.O. for 20 years and served as Master of RPSTOVAL Oaisis and as the Order's Quartermaster. He was also a member of the College of Thelema, Fraternitas Lux Occulta, and The Hermetic Order of QBLH, and was a founding member of the Temple of Thelema. In 1999 he founded the The Order of Thelemic Knights, a Thelemic charitable organization based on the virtues soldiering and chivalry as exemplified by Templarism. Besides New Aeon Magick, Del Campo also wrote New Aeon English Qabalah Revealed and the Ethics of Thelema, forthcoming as separate volumes by Concrescent Press as part of the Heretic's Guide to Thelema collection.

The Mystical and Magical System of the A .'. A .'.
The Spiritual System of Aleister Crowley & George Cecil Jones Step-by-Step
By James A. Eshelman


"Previously, so comprehensive a guide book has not been readily available." Beginning in 1906, two such Adepts, Aleister Crowley and George Cecil Jones, organized and made public the mystical and magical disciplines by which any motivated person can achieve spiritual maturity and have direct experience of realization, liberation, union with God, or cosmic consciousness. They called their system A .'. A .'. Its methods are those of empirical science; its aims, those of devoted religion.

This book explores, step-by-step, the mystical and magical system of the A .'. A .'. For many in the West, it is a strange thought that spirituality can be drilled in the same way that a muscle is strengthened. Yet, an ear trained to listen to music detects wondrous subtleties that the untrained ear misses. The same is true of the palate trained to distinguish fine food and wine, or the eye trained to discriminate nuance in any of a thousand areas. The same is true of spiritual experience. The stages of its unfolding are distinct: the discovery of one's True Will (or who one is in the Universe), and the practical means of expressing this in the world; the Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel (or conscious union with the Divine); and the continued advance toward and through that vast gulf, or Abyss, which lies between humanity and Divinity. The author, in more than 20 years of experience of the mystical and magical system of the A .'. A .'., has derived enormous value from it. This book is the clearest, most complete presentation of the system ever written.

Initiation in the Aeon of the Child: The Inward Journey
By J. Daniel Gunther


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. The doctrine codified in The Book of the Law and the numerous other Holy Books known as Thelma revealed Aleister Crowley as the Prophet of the new Aeon. In this ground-breaking book, author J. Daniel Gunther provides a penetrating and cohesive analysis of the spiritual doctrine underlying and informing the Aeon of the Child, and the sublime formulas of Initiation encountered by those who would probe its mysteries. Drawing on more than 30 years of experiences as a student and teacher within the Order of the A;. A;. the author examines the doctrinal thread of Thelema in its historical, religious, and practical context.

This book is written in clear, precise language that will aid those students who seek to navigate the difficult terrain of the spiritual quest. More advanced students will find tantalizing clues to serve as guideposts and eventual confirmation of direct experience. With numerous diagrams and detailed references encompassing ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic texts, the Apocrypha, the Old and New Testaments, alchemy, hermetic Qabalah, and tarot, as well as the writings of Carl Jung and Aleister Crowley.

To Perfect This Feast: The Gnostic Mass
By James Wasserman


Drawing on nearly half a century of regular performance of the Gnostic Mass--and the countless classes and training sessions they have conducted during their O.T.O. careers--James and Nancy Wasserman (Bishops Tahuti and Mara) offer a coherent look at the ritual described by Aleister Crowley as the central ritual of [the O.T.O. s] public and private celebration. With no attempt to improve upon the teachings of the Master, they elucidate a method of performing the Mass whose entire rationale is a strict adherence to the instructions given in Liber XV. The authors have striven to understand the meaning of Crowley s text penned in the white-hot fury of his 1913 inspiration and extract the relevant spiritual teachings embedded within this elegant ritual.

A series of insights, beginning in December of 2005 e.v., revealed solutions to long-hidden performance mysteries. The authors were encouraged to share these with a broader audience. If you are interested in Aleister Crowley and the Gnostic Mass, this book will teach you how to perform it in a manner that conforms to his instructions.

Qabalah of 50 Gates
By Steven Ashe


This First Hardback Edition of Qabalah of 50 Gates delves into the lore of the internal journey of the Golden Dawn initiate employing the approach of the Yetzirahtic story telling tradition, incorporating lore from the mythos-cycle of Golden Dawn Hermetics, Aleister Crowley's Thelema and the mercurial methodology of Gurdjieff. By the author of The Complete Golden Dawn Initiate the work melds the traditions of Magick and Alchemy, drawing upon the legends of the mediaeval alchemic-philosophers, the infinity-mathematics of Georg Cantor, the tantric mysticism of Aleister Crowley. It is a tour de force of parables describing the experience of each of the 50 Gates of the Qabalah which combine to present a puzzle within an enigma within a mystery. An erudite introduction by the author explains the symbolism featuring throughout the work. A Delight for the serious student of the Golden Dawn Qabalah.

Ijynx
By Blair MacKenzie Blake


Incorporating a magical vocabulary and nightside symbolism, IJYNX is a unique collection of occult prose-poems by an author who has been studying, experimenting, and writing about the western esoteric tradition for over twenty years. While some of the mystical verses attempt to convey ritually-machined hyperdimensions of consciousness (including encounters with the transmundane entities that inhabit these parallel continua), others contain, rather inexplicably, detailed knowledge of a higher Arcanum involving the alchemical entelechy of the dead. And still others challenge even the author's initiated interpretation of things perceived in the ontological spectrum of a 'Magizoth', other than to suggest, upon a closer examination of the cryptic word play, that they are anti-apotropaic in nature, and offer, at the very least, rare fleeting glimpses of the Grand Dreaming of a Treasured Eye.

Musings of a Thelemite
By Frater Da'Neos


Although there are a few books on Thelema in print, they are mostly by Crowley himself. Some have said it is time for a contemporary to write on Thelema. To those, Da'Neos has answered. For him, the story did not end in 1947, and he represents the forefront of the new Thelemic movement. Although he looks at Thelema in light of the 21st century, he stays true to the original ideas of Crowley. Da'Neos writes about the Three Aeons and examines the current of spiritual development that has advanced through history, and how this spiritual current has been materialized through exoteric belief systems. Da'Neos describes what conversation with the Holy Guardian Angel is truly like. Even Crowley himself only hints at it. He describes, in a gripping narrative, of how he came to find his True Self, and the results of that finding. This is only a small sampling of the many areas Da'Neos covers. He goes on to write in detail on Thelemic ritual, the entire development of the Kabbala, examinations of the true force behind Christianity, and much more.

Enochian Initiation:
A Thelemite's Magical Journey into the Ultimate Transcendence
By Frater W.I.T.


Experience a new reality through wondrous visions of the Enochian angels. Enochian magick, a system of angelic evocation, is one of the oldest forms of ceremonial magick in the Western world, and perhaps the single most powerful magical system in all occultism. It was developed by the Elizabethan magician Dr. John Dee who, with the assistance of his seer, Edward Kelly, channeled an angelic language and alphabet that is remarkably effective in opening up the mind to currents of intelligence far beyond the human norm. Whether you are a beginner on your path of study or already an advanced magician, there is something for you in Enochian Initiation. Author Frater W.I.T. shares his own experiences and deeply personal visions, expanding upon and broadening the path toward understanding forged by John Dee, Aleister Crowley, and other great magicians who have come before. By bringing this practice into the modern era, Frater W.I.T. shows how human consciousness can be expanded and examined more closely than with simple meditation, psychoanalysis, or even mind-altering drugs. For those of you who might have hesitated to study Enochian magick because you do not share the same beliefs or convictions of the deeply religious Elizabethans, rest assured that it is possible to achieve the same results within a neutral spiritual context. Frater W.I.T. has developed a nonreligious spirituality in his conjurations while still using Hebrew and Enochian divine names. Through this book, you too will learn how to develop new techniques and ideas to shape your own magical style and method.

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.

The 30 Trials of Ix and the Angels
By Mark Durant


The 30 Trials of Ix and the Angels follows Ix Pantheos on a surreal journey into the depths of consciousness on a quest for redemption.... from his awakening in a ruined castle through his travels to the moon, the sun, and beyond, carried along by the songs of thirty angels as they initiate him into the mysteries of consciousness and the nature of existence. The answer seemingly found and the journey apparently nearing its end, Ix then finds that he must suffer the destruction of his former self, and face a new struggle to hold onto all that was revealed to him. Born of a series of meditations performed by the author, and utilizing an eclectic mix of various world religious and occult philosophies, the story is a surreal journey into the depths of the mind, echoing Ix’s own quest to redeem both himself and mankind. While it stands alone as an engaging read for those unacquainted with the various schools of inquiry that comprise the fertile field within which it took root, it retains that symbolism which may prove insightful to like-minded readers who find themselves treading its obscure paths.

Blood on the Altar:
The Secret History of the World's Most Dangerous Secret Society
By Craig Heimbichner

Check it out... the first fundamentalist book about the OTO! We couldn't resist adding this "anti" propaganda book to our catalog... it's too funny. Take this one with a grain of salt and consider it an exercize in 'knowing thine enemy' (whether you're a fan of the OTO or not). Here's the description:

What's beyond Freemasonry? That's the question investigators have pondered for decades and Craig Heimbichner furnishes fascinating answers as he probes deeply into the sooty arcana of the Ordo Templi Orientis or "OTO"- the higher secret society to which elite Freemasons emigrate as part of a process of occult succession. "Blood on the Altar" pursues the shape-shifting trail of this successor group, on the Left as the pillar of a libertarian ethos, avant-garde drug culture and radical hedonism; on the Right, as the pillar of aristocratic preference for authoritarian rule and classical culture. Heimbichner has deconstructed not just a Janus-faced secret society but a method of operation so deceptive, the reader can hardly believe that such audacious and far-flung duplicity and misdirection could possibly succeed for so long without exposure. But succeed it has, until now. The head-spinning trail of the OTO leads from the US government to the NASA rocket program, from the Hollywood film industry to Right-wing "patriot" groups, from the New Age craze for the Kabbalah, to an attempt to control the conservative enthusiasm for traditional liturgy. The OTO has marched from triumph after triumph, as the spectre of its "Great Beast", British Intelligence officer Aleister Crowley, cast its Thelemic spell over a double-minded populace alternately seeking freedom-and-contraint, sex-and-repression, magick-and-Christendom, science-and-superstition. "Blood on the Altar" shows the OTO to be the signature secret society behind the most dazzling--and puzzling-- charades of the modern Cryptocracy.

Strange Angel:
The Otherworldly Life of Rocket Scientist John Whiteside Parsons
By George Pendle

'Rocket Scientist Killed in Explosion' screamed the headline of the Los Angeles Times on June 18, 1952. John Parsons, a maverick rocketeer whose work had helped transform the rocket from a derided sci-fi plotline into a reality, was at first mourned as a tragically young victim of mishandled chemicals. But as reporters dug deeper a shocking story emerged- he had been performing occult rites and summoning spirits as a follower of Aleister Crowley-and he was promptly written off as an embarrassment to science. Fueled from childhood by dreams of space flight, Parsons was a crucial innovator during rocketry's birth. But his visionary imagination also led him into the occult community in 1930s Los Angeles, and when fantasy's pull became stronger than reality, he lost both his work and his life.

Sex and Rockets:
The Occult World of Jack Parsons
By John Carter

NEW IN PAPERBACK! A brilliant scientist, passionate poet, and political dissident, Jack Parsons (1914-1952) was one of the most enigmatic figures in history. In Sex and Rockets, John Carter divulges the life of a genius and self-proclaimed Antichrist in a biography that reads like science fiction. Using in-depth research including interviews with Parson's peers, Carter offers an intriguing portrait of this dark figure shrouded in cultish myth, from his childhood to his mysterious death in 1952. Parsons cofounded the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), led the Agape Lodge of Aleister Crowley's Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO), and mingled with notable scientists, thinkers, and writers of his day, including Ray Bradbury, L. Ron Hubbard, and Robert A. Heinlein. Among Parsons' hobbies — including explosives and solid rocket fuels — was the avid practice of magical rituals in the vein of Aleister Crowley. Carter initiates readers into the world of angels and demons, magical languages, and numerology used.

Q.b.l.: Being A Qabalistic Treatise
By Frater Achad


Q.B.L. is a unique work in both Qabalah and Thelemic circles. In the world of the Qabalah, Frater Achad revealed revolutionary new principles that caused students of the Qabalah to reexamine and thus deepen their knowledge of the Tree of Life. In Thelemic circles, Aleister Crowley named Frater Achad his magical heir and Achad was fully expected to lead the cause of Thelemic Magick after Crowley's death--until publication of this book caused a rift between the two and Crowley began to distance himself from Achad. This is a rare and valuable book, both for its insight and circumstances. True understanding of the Qabalah and its benefit in magical practice is clearly described, and the information contained is both practical and revelatory. The circumstances surrounding it--Frater Achad's falling out with Crowley and eventual descent into apparent insanity--prove a valuable lesson and warning for individual seekers and those associated with established mystery schools.

Kaos Hieroglyphica
By Anton Channing


Alchemy for the New Aeon. In the year 1564, Dr. John Dee published his work, Monas Hieroglyphica. Its central symbol represented the unity which was the gnosis of the monotheistic aeon. Now over four hundred years later, Anton Channing has published his long awaited debut work, within which he expounds a new symbol, the Kaos Hieroglyph. This symbol represents the plurality and freedom of the New Aeon. This work of magical alchemy draws on such diverse material as Thelema, the Chaos Current, the Maat Current, Timothy Leary, Witchcraft, Paganism, the Hermetic Tradition, Taoism, Shamanism and the author's own Pineal Gland. The Kaos Hieroglyphica offers the reader interpretations of Hermetic symbolism in a way that is both insightful and relevant to New Aeon Magic.

Aleister Crowley and the Cult of Pan
By Michael Murphy


(U.K. Import) 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.

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).

New Hermetics:
21st Century Magick for Illumination & Power
By Jason Augustus Newcomb


The New Hermetics is a powerful spiritual technology of the mind. It is a course of study and practice that teaches the science of illumination and the ability to alter reality. The ancient Egyptian form of Hermetic philosophy was that the mind shapes reality. The New Hermetics extends that philosophy – the universe is a great mind or consciousness, and we are a part of that consciousness; therefore by learning to control the mind, we learn to control our part of the universe. With updated versions of the ancient Rosicrucian brotherhood's 10 levels of initiation, combined with ancient and modern mind-expanding techniques such as visualization and NLP (neuro-linguistic programming), The New Hermetics progressively gives initiates power over their minds and world. Practicing these elements simultaneously makes it possible to undergo initiation into the mysteries of consciousness in a fraction of the time it was ever before possible. The course offered in the book lets practitioners master their minds in such a way that they will be able to achieve anything and everything they want in life, spiritually and physically.

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 practiceed 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 intdescriptionsns 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.

History of Fun V1
By Mary Hedger

A History of Fun is a racy novel based very loosely on the goings on of Aleister Crowley and his religion, Thelema. The names have been changed to protect the guilty! Far from a bunch of easy going liberals, Thelema is portrayed as a cult of super sensualists from which one may be powerless to escape simply because it is one's destiny. Power interplay is a strong element as the leader, Drummond (pseudo-Crowley) struggles to maintain this power and keep his followers on the paths of their true wills - or his own?

Tankhem: Seth and Egyptian Magick
By Mogg Morgan


(U.K. Import, 2nd revised edition) The Typhonian deity Seth was once worshipped in Ancient Egypt. Followers of later schools obliterated Seth's monuments, demonised and neglected his cult. A possible starting point in the quest for the 'hidden god' is an examination of the life of Egyptian King Seti I ('He of Seth') also known as Sethos. When looking for an astral temple that included all of the ancient Egyptian gods and goddesses, the temple of Seti I proved itself worthy of examination. Many secrets began to reveal themselves. The essence of the real philosophy of the Sethian and indeed what Satanism is, stems from the author's astral wanderings in this temple. The temple is a real place, and like any temple no part of its design is accidental. It is a record in stone and paint of the Egyptian wisdom. It also fits quite well with the Thelemic mythos and tells lots of interesting things about the ancient Seth cult - if you have the eye to see it. Contents: Prolegomena to Egyptian magick; Setanism; Tankhem; Egyptian Magick and Tantra; Sexual Magick; Twenty Eight; North; The Crooked Wand.

The Qabalah of 50 Gates
By Steven Ashe


The Qabalah of the 50 Gates delves into the lore of the internal journey of the initiate along the lines of the Yetzirahtic story telling tradition, incorporating lore from the mythos-cycle of Golden Dawn Hermetics, Aleister Crowley's 'Thelema' and the mercurial methodology of Gurdjieff. This book has its roots in the Golden Dawn tradition of Magick and Alchemy, drawing upon the legends of the mediaval alchemic-philosophers, the infinity-mathematics of Georg Cantor, the Tantric Qabalah of Aleister Crowley. It is heretical; a tour de force of stories describing the experience of each of the 50 Gates which combine to present a puzzle within an enigma within a mystery.

The The Slaves Shall Serve:
Meditations on Liberty
By James Wasserman,


In the tradition of 'Freedom is a Two-Edge Sword' by Jack Parsons, comes this modern day treatise on politics from a Thelemic perspective. A battle is now raging for the soul of America, and it is of critical interest to the survival of true freedom worldwide. Conceived in liberty and watered by the blood of patriots, this nation of still-free men and women totters on the brink of surrendering its fundamental values of individual responsibility and self determination. On the domestic side we exchange our privacy and personal autonomy for the chimerical security of a cradle-to-grave society; internationally we abdicate our ability to act autonomously in our national interest, and in accordance with our most cherished principles. Why are we squandering the precious jewels of the greatest political experiment in human history? How, and by whom, are we being seduced into ceding that which we should treasure above all else — our most fundamental liberties? Finally: what actions can thoughtful citizens take to protect and regain their personal freedoms? In his newest book, James Wasserman examines these urgent questions, presenting a cogent, intelligent, and often-alarming picture of our nation's situation both nationally and globally. This revealing collection of essays, the product of ten years of study and contemplation, is supplemented with lengthy appendices of the primary reference materials that underlie the author's bold assertions.

KENNETH GRANT


Cults of the Shadow
By Kenneth Grant

Many sincere occultists have hesitated to study the notorious left hand path for fear of stumbling into incalculable evil and ultimate damnation. As the last student of Aleister Crowley, Kenneth Grant has no such hesitations. In he shows that the left hand path has no connection with black magic-it is a legitimate balance to the right hand path dating back to the primeval phases of consciousness. Grant leads us on a dark pathway through Africa's Ophidian (snake) tradition Egypt's Draconian cult and the Tantric secrets of India and Tibet into the present day.
