- Ceremonial Magic & The Power of Evocation by Dr. Joseph C. Lisiewski
Interesting read, he shares his experience and advice doing demonic evocations. I plan to eventually read his other book about his Goetic workings called Howlings From The Pit.
- Magic: History, Theory, Practice by Ernst Schertel
Recently translated from German to English. A copy signed by the author was found in Hitler’s library. I discussed this book in a Hitler thread someone recently resurrected and Lady Eva has a thread where she discusses working with it. Left hand path.
Lords of The Left Hand Path
Magical Ritual Methods by William Gray
Great English magician. He was the real deal. He even met Crowley when he was a kid and guess what Crowley said to him? Do what thou wilt.
- Liber Null & Psychonaut
Peter J. Carroll, one of the fathers of chaos magick, wrote one of the best books on it if not the best book.
- Low Magick by Lon Milo Duquette
Great snippets and stories about his experiences in magick. The story where he does the Chronozon tango at the Catholic school is just great. How can you not love Lon?
- Modern Magick by Donald Michael Kraig
Great beginner’s guide. Kabbalistic based magick. White & gray magick, good to start out on if you prefer not to jump straight off into the dark.
The Magical Revival by Kenneth Grant
Magick In Theory & Practice by Aleister Crowley
- The Book of English Magic
Cute and wonderful little book.
- The Qabalistic Tarot by Robert Wang.
A must if you are a serious practitioner of Kabbalistic magick.
- The Satanic Bible & The Satanic Rituals by Anton Lavey
Left Hand Path 101. Mandatory reading in LHP Elementary school.
- In The World of Madness by Michael Sartin
Interesting collection of essays by a Satanist
- Luciferian Witchcraft by Michael Ford
I add this because I just read it. A number of members here would probably enjoy it. Great artwork throughout the book. My biggest complaint with Ford’s work is the unacceptable amount of typo’s and grammatical errors in his stuff. He needs to get an editor if he can’t be bothered to edit it himself. Publishing that sloppy shit takes away a certain amount of my respect for him as a writer and to a degree as a magician. The art is great. Take more pride in your words.
- Transcendental Magic by Eliphas Levi
Levi was a great writer and a brilliant man and dear old Uncle Al took a lot of his ideas from Levi.
- Sex & Rockets
Interesting biography about Jack Parsons, one of Crowley’s American proteges.
- Wormwood Star
This is the reason I mentioned Sex & Rockets. This is the biography of Parson’s wife, Marjorie Cameron. This is a wonderful biography about a very fascinating woman who in many ways was just as intriguing as her husband if not more so. She carried on in the occult scene long after his death and plays the dual roles of The Whore of Babylon and Isis in the film The Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome. When Kenneth Grant saw her in that film he went absolutely bonkers over her.
I could list more books but I’ll stop there.
