Contributor Bio: Aleister Crowley:
Crowley was a prolific writer, poet, magician and painter. He devoted his life to exploring the world's many methods of spiritual attainment.

Using previously unpublished diaries and letters, Tobias Churton traces Crowley’s extensive travels through America, including details of his five-year stay from 1914 to 1919, his involvement with the birth of the Greenwich Village radical art scene, and his work to undermine German propaganda to keep the United States out of World War I. 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.

One of the most famous-yet least understood-manifestations of Thelemic thought has been the works of Kenneth Grant, the British occultist and one-time intimate of Aleister Crowley, who discovered a hidden world within the primary source materials of Crowley's Aeon of Horus. Using complementary texts from such disparate authors as H.P. Lovecraft, Jack Parsons, Austin Osman Spare, and Charles Stansfeld Jones ("Frater Achad"), Grant formulated a system of magic that expanded upon that delineated in the rituals of the OTO: a system that included elements of Tantra, of Voudon, and in particular that of the Schlangekraft recension of the Necronomicon, all woven together in a dark tapestry of power and illumination.

The Dark Lord follows the themes in the writings of Kenneth Grant, H.P. Lovecraft, and the Necronomicon, uncovering further meanings of the concepts of the famous writers of the Left Hand Path. It is for Thelemites, as well as lovers of the Lovecraft Mythos in all its forms, and for those who find the rituals of classical ceremonial magic inadequate for the New Aeon.

Traveling through the worlds of religion, literature, and the occult, Peter Levenda takes his readers on a deeply fascinating exploration on magic, evil, and The Dark Lord as he investigates one of the most neglected theses in the history of modern occultism: the nature of the Typhonian Current and its relationship to Aleister Crowley"s Thelema and H.P. Lovecraft"s Necronomicon.
This is a true story. . . It is a terrible story; but it is also a story of hope and of beauty.

Written by Aleister Crowley, The Diary of a Drug Fiend tells the story of young Peter Pendragon and his lover Louise Laleham, and their adventures traveling through Europe in a cocaine and heroin haze. The bohemian couples’ binges produce visions and poetic prophecies, but when their supply inevitably runs dry they find themselves faced with the reality of their drug addiction. Through the guidance of King Lamus, a master adept, they use the application of practical Magick to free themselves from addiction.

First published in 1922 and dubbed “a book for burning” by the papers of the time, The Diary of a Drug Fiend reveals the poet, the lover, and the profound adept that was Aleister Crowley.

Many consider Enochiana the most powerful and least understood system of Western Occult practice. This book makes it truly accessible and easy to understand. Crowley's work was the launching pad for all that followed. Originally published in 1912, it rent the veil of the Inner Order of the Golden Dawn and revealed its most precious jewel for all to see. And now, for the first time, the reader is provided with instructions that bridge the gap between the material and spiritual worlds by integrating Enochiana with Sex Magick. Mr. DuQuette and Dr. Hyatt bring over forty years of practical experience in the field to show you how to start using this powerful system right now. Also includes an Enochian dictionary. Illustrated. This is an objective biographical study of Crowley written by someone who lived and worked intimately with him. The In The Triangle was written many years later, after long contemplation, and Regardie combines the psychological insight afforded by his professional training as a Reighian analyst with his grasp of Crowley's magical personality.

Group ritual has been a cornerstone of spiritual practice since time immemorial, yet its history and importance have often been overlooked by occultists of the modern age. This book is the first comprehensive presentation of group-oriented rites for modern magicians inspired by the works of Aleister Crowley. It contains rituals written by Crowley for his own magic circles, many of them unpublished during his lifetime, plus rare ancient texts that were Crowley’s own inspiration.

The rituals are newly edited and explained by Rodney Orpheus, who brings to this volume decades of experience in performing and teaching Aleister Crowley’s rituals within Crowley’s magical order Ordo Templi Orientis. He introduces each ritual with a clear overview, setting each in its historical context and explaining its function and mode of operation, and includes detailed notes on the setting and performance of each one.

Whether absolute beginner or seasoned expert, magicians of all paths will find this volume to be an eminently workable and extremely powerful grimoire spanning centuries from ancient Mithraic and Bacchanalian rites, Goetia, and Gnosticism, right up to present day Crowleyan invocations and sexual magick.
Aleister Crowley (1875-1947) has been seen variously as a man of notorious sexual habits, a satanic occultist, and latterly an icon of the 1960s love generation.But Crowley was neither a mere sexual predator nor a vulgar black magician. He was the synthesizer of what he termed "Magick," a complex 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 life and occult progress, Francis King examines each of the three main sources of Magick - thus throwing much new light on Crowley himself, and doing much to explain the continuing admiration for his writings which has been displayed by individuals as diverse as occultists, film directors from Kenneth Anger to Donald Cammell, and rock musicians such as Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page.Includes 12 pages of photographs, and a new appendix with two rare Crowley essays on narcotics: "The Great Drug Delusion" and "The Drug Panic."

Publisher Marketing: Crowley's most famous novel. It deals with the endless battle between the forces of light and the forces of darkness.

This epic cultural and historical odyssey unearths the full influence of occult traditions on rock and roll - from the Beatles to Black Sabbath - and shows how the marriage between mysticism and music changed our world.

From the hoodoo-inspired sounds of Elvis Presley to the Eastern odysseys of George Harrison, from the dark dalliances of Led Zeppelin to the Masonic imagery of today's hip-hop scene, the occult has long breathed life into rock and hip-hop-and, indeed, esoteric and supernatural traditions are a key ingredient behind the emergence and development of rock and roll.

With vivid storytelling and laser-sharp analysis, writer and critic Peter Bebergal illuminates this web of influences to produce the definitive work on how the occult shaped - and saved - popular music.

As Bebergal explains, occult and mystical ideals gave rock and roll its heart and purpose, making rock into more than just backbeat music, but into a cultural revolution of political, spiritual, sexual, and social liberation.
