PORTABLE DARKNESS: An Aleister Crowley Reader - Edited by Scott Michaelsen

An Aleister Crowley Reader

Edited with Commentary by Scott Michaelsen

Forewords by Robert Anton Wilson and Genesis P. Orridge

Aleister Crowley was a brilliant man and a major intellectual figure in the occult world - This is a collection of some of his best writings with commentary that illuminates his notoriously complex and impenetrable theories.

As an intellectual and mystic he devoted his life to the study of the Qabalah, Gematria, Numerology, Astrology, Myth, Glyphs, Yoga and Linguistics. His intense methodical exploration of such an immense and arcane range of knowledge has yielded a huge and challenging body of literature.

In this book editor Scott Michaelsen has sifted through his vast amount of writings in search of those works which best display the razor-sharp insight for which Crowley has become known.

The selections are thematically organized and accompanied by Michaelsen's enlightening commentary - an indispensable lexicon for the novice and adept alike - making Crowleyan philosophy both accessible and intelligible.
