A new and revised edition of Dave Lee‘s Chaotopia!: Sorcery and Ecstasy in the Fifth Aeon has been released by Mandrake of Oxford in a new expanded edition.

Lee has also launched a new blog, also titled Chaotopia!. At the moment it seems to house a few reviews; it’ll be interesting to see the direction it takes.

While we’re on the subject, chaos magick seems to be undergoing (another) revival at the moment. Phil Hine’s Prime Chaos: Adventures in Chaos Magic is also out in a new revised and expanded edition from Original Falcon. A review will be forthcoming.

Jason Miller’s posted a call-out to chaotes over on Strategic Sorcery. Chaos magick – and chaotes – have changed quite a bit since the current’s inception. Continue reading »

Crowleyana galore

My review of Aleister Crowley: A Modern Master, by John Moore is now up on, you can read it by clicking this link.

I was really excited when I got the book. It was published by Mandrake of Oxford, who’ve put out many excellent books over the past decade, but unfortunately this wasn’t one of them. I really wanted to like this book, read the review for an analysis of why it didn’t end up happening.

In other, closely related news, Weiser Antiquarian has announced that they have three new Crowley titles available for sale, all signed by the author.

They are as follows: The Magickal Essence of Aleister Crowley, by J. Edward Cornelius; Aleister Crowley and the Aeon of Horus, by Paul Weston; and The Wickedest Books in the World: Confessions of an Aleister Crowley Bibliophile, by Blair MacKenzie Blake. Each sounds interesting in their own way, particularly Cornelius’, which contains reworked material originally published in the Red Flame.

So many new being published about Crowley lately. A new trend?
