Meet the Author

Aleister Crowley (/ˈkroʊli/ KROH-lee; 12 October 1875–1 December 1947), born Edward Alexander Crowley, and also known as both Frater Perdurabo and The Great Beast, was an influential English occultist, mystic, ceremonial magician, poet and mountaineer, who was responsible for founding the religious philosophy of Thelema. In his role as the founder of the Thelemite philosophy, he came to see himself as the prophet who was entrusted with informing humanity that it was entering the new Aeon of Horus in the early 20th century.

    Intriguing

    This happens to be the first book I read from Mr. Crowley and all I have to say is this was quite an intriguing read. I want to read his other books as well, one I'm actually looking out for is Diary of a Drug Fiend. Which from I hear is when he experimented with drugs. Hopefully I'll find it soon.
