This book isn't as salacious as the title might otherwise indicate. It's basically a reissue of Crowley's 72 spirit correspondences plus a couple additional chapters.If you know what the Goetia is, this might be worth a look to you. If you don't know the difference between a goetia, a goitre or gomorrah, this book won't be the least bit interesting.The cover image is a good choice - thank goodness New Falcon Publications didn't make this look like a Black Sabbath album cover. Artist David Wilson's work is sub-standard and really lessens the overall quality of the publication. Chapter 4, however, recounting an evocation gone wrong of Orabas is absolutely hysterical and reads like a cross between Dr. Faustus and a Peter Sellers movie.

This is far from the best book on magical evocation, but also far from the worst. It has a few interesting psychological ideas in it, but I think overall it does not do the subject of demonology much justice.

I read this because I was curious as to what the whole Keys of Solomon thing is about. This book basically goes through the steps of how to summon a demon, but it is obviously a bunch of malarcky. Although I did enjoy reading it a bit more than some other Christian Mythology, which is really what this is... Christian Mysticism and Mythology.

Christopher Hyatt and Lon Duquette have done an outstanding job of making magick accessible. Many of the books available today seem to complicate rather than uncomplicate the subject. No so here. There is enough good information for even the novice to be able to set up a magick circle and perform magical evocation. David Wilson's illustrations are great! Contrast this book with Joseph Lisiewski's Ceremonial Magick. If you believe what he says you will either see it as entirely impossible or be scared to death to try it. Read Duquette's My Life With the Spirits and Hyatt and Black's Urban Voodoo. You'll be infinitely more knowledgeable, and you'll have information from real people who have actually practiced magick.
