Books to start with

Thus far I’ve downloaded a free Groetia. It’s all I can do at present. Which books are the best to start with for the Left Hand Path?

Works of Darkness by EA Koetting.

Also forgot to add:

  • Liber Null & Psychonaut - Peter J. Caroll
  • The Apophenion - Peter J. Caroll

These are more Chaos Magick than LHP but definitely worth a read, especially the former; the latter is quite theory-heavy and more nerdy/theoretical.

And:

  • Modern Magick - Donald Michael Kraig

Definitely more RHP and based on lot of Golden Dawn teachings iirc, but this book covers a lot of essential basics in very digestible format and is probably the one book that started me down the path proper.
