We’re starting a series of recommendations by our knowledgeable staff and will take you through the most interesting books on our shelves! Whether you’re new to the topic or experienced, you will surely find something to your liking.
1. The Enochian Evocation of Dr. John Deeby Geoffrey James, £18.99
Undoubtedly a bedrock of modern magic, Dee’s work is here presented as a coherent system that can be followed and practiced by present day occultists.
2. Aleister Crowley and the Cult of Panby Paul Newman, £12.99
A wonderful little book that helps to contextualise much of Crowley’s more literary output. Set alongside E.M. Forster, D.H. Lawrence and Arthur Machen, Crowley’s psychology can be seen as less extreme, and more a participation of the concerns of his generation.
3. Aleister Crowley and Dion Fortune: The Logos of the Aeon and the Shakti of the Age by Alan Richardson, £19.99
Recalling Plutarch, Richardson has parallelled the lives of Crowley and Fortune to assess their collective impact on modern occultism.
Beginning with the end and working backwards, occultism can be viewed as a ‘current’ passing through these two interesting biographies.
4. Fallen Angels: Soldiers of Satan’s Realm by Bernard Bamberger, £17.99
Less of a book for Satanists, and More >
