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Using previously unpublished diaries and letters, Tobias Churton traces Crowley’s extensive travels through America, including details of his five-year stay from 1914 to 1919, his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.

Basic exercises in meditation and the training of one's visualizing power, for the furthering of one's magical abilities. "The Art of True Healing" details a powerful exercise that stimulates the body, mind, and spirit to help us create physical health and personal success. Originally published in 1932, predating by more than a half century the current interest in the mind's power to heal, this concise work guides readers through what Israel Regardie calls the Middle Pillar meditation -- a technique that combines the mystical concepts of yoga's chakras and the Kabbalah's Tree of Life to create a simple and effective healing tool.
In this edition, editor Marc Allen brings Regardie's work into the twenty-first century -- showing us how to unleash energy to heal our bodies and, ultimately, every part of our lives. Like few books before or since, "The Art of True Healing" provides both the theory and practices necessary for attaining well-being and fulfillment.

Jacket Description/Back: When Dion Fortune wrote Aspects of Occultism, "occultism" was an umbrella word used to describe hidden lore, secret traditions, and arcane knowledge. Today, when the word "occult" is often confused with "cult", and all its negative aspects, Fortune's essays would be better referred to as "esoteric studies". In this book she discusses evocative magic, the sites of Druid worship, parallels between Christianity and the Qabalah, the astral plane, auras, spiritual healing, power cycles, and our relationship with the Higher Self.

Nine different aspects of occultism are illuminated by Fortune's wisdom and insight: "God and the Gods" contrasts the God of Christianity with the gods of pagan faiths, "Sacred Centres" features the sites of Druid worship and the connection of planetary and physical matter, "Christianity and Reincarnation" draws an unusual parallel between the teaching of Christ and the Qabalistic doctrine. In "The Astral Plane", Fortune teaches that death does not change our astral consciousness; "The Worship of Isis" reminds us that each woman is a priestess of the goddess; and "Some Helps to Meditation" provides a few simple rules for achieving a state of higher consciousness. The three bands visible when the aura is seen in its entirety are described in "Teachings Concerning the Aura", "Pitfalls of Spiritual Healing" deals with the dangers of attempting such "healing without the necessary grounding in scientific training and clinical experience", and "Power Tides and Cycles" concerns the Cosmic Doctrine "whereby we trace the Cosmos coming into manifestation cycle by cycle and the great zodiac taking form in unlimited space".

This revised edition includes a new introduction byGareth Knight, an additional essay by Fortune -- "The Myth of the Round Table" -- and an index. People familiar with Fortune's work will love this book!

Publisher Marketing: When Dion Fortune wrote Aspects of Occultism, "occultism" was an umbrella word used to describe hidden lore, secret traditions, and arcane knowledge; it had nothing in common with the negative aspects often associated today with the word "cult". This is a book of "esoteric studies" that examines auras, the astral plane, spiritual healing, power cycles, and our relationship with the Higher Self.

This superlative translation by noted scholar and theologian R.H. Charles is one of the best and most complete available. An introduction by noted esoteric scholar and antiquarian bookseller R. A. Gilbert places The Book of Enoch in historical context and dispels many of the dubious interpretations previously attributed to it.

The Book of Enoch's vision of the Apocalypse takes a very different view than that of western Christians, although it is part of the biblical canon for Ethiopian and Eritrean Christians. According to Enoch, the wicked shall be cast out and the good will realize a literal heaven on Earth. The prophecies also contain the lost "Book of Noah," early references to a messiah as "Christ," and an accounting of the angels and subsequent creation of demons.
An extensive study of ancient books of magic and the magical practices preserved in the few surviving grimoires

  • Includes spells, talisman formulations, and secret magical alphabets reproduced from the author's private collection of grimoires, with instructions for their use
  • Explains the basic principles of medieval magic, including the doctrine of names and the laws of sympathy and contagion
  • Offers an overview of magic in the Western Mystery tradition


  • Grimoires began simply as quick-reference "grammar books" for sorcerers, magicians, and priests before evolving into comprehensive guides to magic, complete with spell-casting rituals, magical alphabets, and instructions to create amulets and talismans. With the advent of the printing press, some grimoires were mass produced, but many of the abbreviations were misinterpreted and magical words misspelled, rendering them ineffective. The most powerful grimoires remained not only secret but also heavily encoded, making them accessible only to the highest initiates of the magical traditions.

    Drawing on his own private collection of grimoires and magical manuscripts as well as his privileged access to the rare book archives of major European universities, Claude Lecouteux offers an extensive study of ancient books of magic and the ways the knowledge within them was kept secret for centuries through symbols, codes, secret alphabets, and Kabbalistic words. Touching on both white and black magical practices, he explains the basic principles of medieval magic, including the doctrine of names and signatures, mastery of the power of images, and the laws of sympathy and contagion. He gives an overview of magic in the Western Mystery tradition, emphasizing both lesser-known magicians such as Trithemus and Peter of Apono and famous ones like Albertus Magnus and Hermes Trismegistus.

    Creating a universal grimoire, Lecouteux provides exact reproductions of secret magical alphabets, symbols, and glyphs with instructions for their use as well as an illustrated collection of annotated spells, rituals, and talismans for numerous applications including amorous magic, healing magic, and protection rites. The author also examines the folk magic that resulted when the high magic of the medieval grimoires melded with the preexisting pagan magic of ancient Europe.

    Publisher Marketing: A witty, instructive, and admirable collection of paradoxes.

    A rich, wondrous anthology of the Western magical tradition, from the Old Testament to Doctor Faustus and Paradise Lost, in a beautiful hardcover edition

    “. . . as when iron is drawn to a magnet, camphor is sucked into hot air, crystal lights up in the Sun, sulfur and a volatile liquid are kindled by flame, an empty eggshell filled with dew is raised towards the Sun . . .”

    The Bible is full of stories featuring forms of magic and possession—from Moses battling with Pharaoh’s wizards to the supernatural actions of Jesus and his disciples. As, over the following centuries, the Christian church attempted to stamp out “deviant” practices, a persistent interest in magic drew strength from this Biblical validation. A strange blend of mumbo-jumbo, fear, fraud, and deeply serious study, magic was at the heart of the European Renaissance, fascinating many of its greatest figures.

    This is a book filled with incantations, charms, curses, summonings, cures, and descriptions of extraordinary, shadowy, only half-understood happenings from long ago. It features writers as various as Thomas Aquinas, John Milton, John Dee, Ptolemy, and Paracelsus along with anonymous ancient and medieval works that were, in some cases, viewed as simply too dangerous even to open.

    The Book of Magic will be welcomed by everyone from those with the most casual interest in the magical tradition to anyone drawn to the Renaissance and the tangled, arcane roots of the scientific tradition.
    An explanation of the stages of dying, by the prolific, pioneering, magic student and teacher. Channeled by Crowley in 1904 from the disembodied teacher, Aiwass, this small volume is the foundation for the New Law of Thelema, for the coming Aeon of Horus. Cryptic and entertaining as it is blasphemous.

    Publisher Marketing: This work contains the corrected text of the 1938 edition as well as a facsimile of the handwritten manuscript.

    The years since the financial crash have seen the realization dawn that the great promise of modern civilization will go unfulfilled. Study hard, work hard, buy a house, retire happy.

    The ceremonial magic of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn is among the most widely practiced of all magical systems today. Yet very few books on the Golden Dawn tradition pass beyond the basics into the more demanding and powerful magical practices the system has to offer. Circles of Power is the exception. It’s a comprehensive practical manual of Golden Dawn magic that proceeds step by step from basic principles and fundamental rituals to the heights and depths of magical attainment.

    Circles of Power provides detailed instructions for such rarely discussed magical techniques as the creation of telesmatic images, the construction and use of flashing tablets, the Golden Dawn method of etheric shapeshifting, and the use of the Formula of the Equinox—one of the two fundamental ritual formulas of the Golden Dawn tradition—as a basis for rituals of evocation, consecration, spiritual development, and more. This new edition has been thoroughly revised by the author.

    Contributor Bio: Dion Fortune:
    Fortune is considered the most important woman thinker to emerge from the occult revival of the post 1890s in England. In 1919, she was initiated into the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, a magical society whose members included W. B. Yeats and Arthur Machen, where she studied Western magic. Her work as an adept in the mysteries of the Western Tradition reflects a keen knowledge and an understanding of psychology which she studied at London University.

    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.
    The Demon Lover was first published in 1927, the same year as H.P. Lovecraft's The Call of Cthulhu. Dion Fortune was among a generation of occult horror writers that formed popular culture's obsession with secret societies, vampires, demons, ritual magic, and dark powers lurking in the shadows. What sets Fortune apart from so many of her contemporaries is her deep knowledge of the inner workings of magical orders, rites, and practices, and her own freethinking on occult subjects, demonstrated in the classic Psychic Self-Defense and The Mystical Qabalah. 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.
