VATHEK: Decadent Novel - by William Beckford Illustrated by Odilon Redon


VATHEK: By William Beckford

Classic Decadent Gothic Novel

VATHEK by WILLIAM BECKFORD still remains to be one of the most extreme examples of strange 18th Century English Literature ever - a crawling meditation on the vile transgressions of the deparaved - witches, demons, sacrifice, sexual excess and other spectral horrors mark the progress of Vathek, the ninth caliph of the Abassides - eternally addicted to women, glutony and all things extreme - on a pilgrimage to the underworld where sin and damnation flower into eternal torture. Highly unusual fiction with a mystical eastern flavor.

This edition is illustrated by the bizarre b&w lithographs of 19th century symbolist, ODILON REDON - Classic Gothic Decadent Literature first published in 1816 - it was acclaimed by authors ranging from Byron to H. P. Lovecraft.

"Vathek marches onward with a phantasmagoric pomp in which the laughter is that of skeletons feasting under arabesque domes. The descriptions are triumphs of weird coloring which raise the book to a permanent place in English letters."
-- H. P. Lovecraft

DREAM MACHINE BOOK: Brion Gysin



DREAM MACHINE: by Brion Gysin - An Exhibition Guide

The ultimate hallucinogenic drug trip without the drugs !!

During his lifetime Brion Gysin (1916-1986) inspired an array of artists, writers, poets and musicians, most notably the Beat Generation. Since his death Gysin's own work has only increased in popularity, yet his radical approach to art defies categorization. Dream Machine is the first detailed study of Gysin's works in both art-historical and contemporary contexts. A devotee of invention, Gysin created paintings, drawings, photo-collages, installations, poetry and sound experiments. He produced the cut-up collage novel The Third Mind (1965) with William Burroughs, and with Ian Sommerville developed the Dreamachine (1961), a kinetic sculpture designed to induce visions by shining flickering light on the closed eyelids of the viewer - this produces wild colors and psychedelic patterns in the mind.... and if looked at for long periods of time, actual shapes, figures and other hallucinations can appear !!

This new book, features incisive texts, many photos and appreciations by contemporary artists, and captures the remarkable life of a daring, often overlooked artistic visionary genius.

SURREALISM & MODERNISM: From the Collection of the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art




SURREALISM and MODERNISM: From the Collection of the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art

Edited by Eric Zafran & Paul Paret

First ever survey of this museum's collection of excellent modern art - The Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art's remarkable collection of modern art is due to a succession of adventurous directors and curators. This book showcases the museums collection and provides fascinating details about how it was acquired. Richly Illustrated with the artworks in color and photos of the artists and their studios in black and white.

Many of the works - the surrealist paintings in particular - were bought directly from the artists or from their first exhibitions. The famed Atheneum director Chick Austin mounted the first Surrealist exhibition in America in 1931 and bought works from the then barely known Salvador Dali - works by de Chirico, Ernst, Matta, Tanguy and Calder soon followed. Then in 1934 the Atheneum had the first great American retrospective of Picasso and the museum bought a small neo-classical piece to add to its collection.

Later, Marini, Georgia O'Keefe, de Kooning, Jackson Pollack and many others works were added to provide a broad overview of artistic trends from the last century. An excellent book.

DARK STAR: The Satanic Rites of Gilles de Rais - by Various Authors



DARK STAR: The Satanic Rites of Gilles de Rais - by Various Authors

The spectre of Gilles de Rais the satanist child-killer, eclipses French history like a 'dark star'. A fallen general, once the champion of Joan of Arc, whose experimentations in cruelty led him through the very Gates of Hell.

His obscene crimes and decadent aristocratic glamour have created an enduring legend of mythic proportions. This collection of essays, quotations, excerpts and fiction from some of the most famous authors in recent centuries evoke a chilling portrait of one of the most sinister figures in the annals of European history and mass murder.

After Joan of Arc was captured, Gilles de Rais fled to the safety of his castles in France where he began a steady spiral downwards - one of his first murders was committed in the presence of the sadistic sorcerer Prelati - in Prelati's chambers in the castle - Gilles seized a young boy and slashed his throat - from that moment on he had found his one true passion in life - the torture and murder of children - and where ever he went, children would disappear, never to be seen again - the final number of his victims will never be known but some say it could be as high as 800 deaths....

Authors Include:

Georges Bataille
Blaise Cendrars
J.K. Huysmans
Valentine Penrose
Jean Genet
Marquis de Sade
Andre Breton
Arthur Rimbaud
Gustave Flaubert
Richard Thoma

MUSHROOMS, MYTH & MITHRAS: The Drug Cult That Civilized Europe


MUSHROOMS, MYTH & MITHRAS: The Drug Cult That Civilized Europe -- By Carl Ruck, Mark Hoffman and Jose Celdran

Anthropological evidence has long suggested that psychedelic plants had played important roles in indigenous communities for thousands of years, but most scholarship does not address their formative impact on western culture.

Through careful studies of art and archeology, Mushrooms, Myth & Mithras reveals compelling evidence that ritual use of psychoactive mushrooms was a powerful and closely guarded inspirational force in the development of early European culture.

We discover that Nero was the first in a long line of Roman emperors to be initiated by secret "magical dinners" in which mind-altering mushrooms were used as a source of spiritual awakening. Although this sect was officially banned after Roman conversion to Christianity, aspects of its practices and teachings went on to influence many secret societies, including the Freemasons. It is said that the 'Cult of the Mithras' still exists today in various forms.

Mushrooms, Myth & Mithras is a fascinating historical exploration of a powerful force kept hidden for thousands of years.

SEX AND ROCKETS: The Occult World of Jack Parsons - by John Carter

SEX AND ROCKETS: The Occult World of Jack Parsons
By John Carter

Foreword by Robert Anton Wilson

The Mysterious Life and Death of Jack Parsons -- In his short 37 years, John Whiteside “Jack” Parsons embodied several different roles in one tormented but glorious life.

By day, Parsons’ unorthodox genius created a solid rocket fuel that helped the Allies win World War II and NASA send spacecraft to the moon. He was the co-founder of Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Aerojet Corporation, and a lunar crater on the dark side of the moon was named after Parsons.

By night, Parsons called himself 'The Antichrist' when he performed Aleister Crowley’s Thelemic rituals to try and create a new sort of human being that would finally destroy Christianity.

In a Pasadena mansion, the dark, handsome Parsons hosted soirees for the young emerging literature of science fiction, visited by writers such as Robert Heinlein, Ray Bradbury, and none other than L. Ron Hubbard himself, who later founded the Church of Scientology.

With L. Ron Hubbard acting as his “Scribe”, Parsons enacted dark “Babylon” rituals to help foment a new occult age - but Jack Parsons dies suddenly in a huge, mysterious explosion that even today cannot be definitively explained. Was it murder ? Suicide ? Conspiracy ? Or just an accident?

FOAM OF THE DAZE - Absurd Novel / Bizarre Fiction by Boris Vian



FOAM OF THE DAZE (L'Ecume des Jours) - Novel/Fiction By Boris Vian

Boris Vian was an engineer, inventor, chronicler of jazz, trumpet player, poet, creator of spectacles and scandals, lyric writer, singer, novelist, and of course pataphysician.

Tam Tam Books publication of Boris Vian's masterpiece FOAM OF THE DAZE (L'Ecume des Jours) with a new translation by Brian Harper has the full approval of the Vian estate.

FOAM OF THE DAZE is a jazz fueled Science Fiction story that is both romantic and nihilistic! Vian's novel is an assortment of bittersweet romance, absurdity and the frailty of life. It is a nimble-fingered masterpiece that is witty and incredibly moving. IT IS THE STORY OF A WEALTHY YOUNG MAN, COLIN, AND THE LOVE OF HIS LIFE, CHLOE, WHO DEVELOPS A WATER LILY IN HER LUNG!

"The most heartbreakingly poignant modern love story ever written"
--- Raymond Queneau

"A kind of jazzy, cheerful, sexy, sci-fi mid 20th century Huysmans..."
--- Richard Hell

AUTUMN IN PEKING - Absurd Novel / Bizarre Fiction by Boris Vian



AUTUMN IN PEKING (L'Automne à Pékin)

Novel/Fiction By Boris Vian - Translated from French by Paul Knobloch

Introduction by Marc Lapprand

Boris Vian was a jack of all trades - he was a songwriter, playwright, singer, jazz critic, pataphysician and novelist, among other things. Vian's 1947 novel Autumn in Peking (L'Automne à Pékin) is perhaps his most slapstick work - which included an extra amount of despair in its exotic recipe for a violent cocktail.

The story takes place in the imaginary desert called Exopotamie where all the leading characters take part in the building of a train station with tracks that go nowhere. Houses and buildings are destroyed to build this unnecessary structure.

Exopotamie is a thinly disguised version of Paris, where after the war the city started changing its previous centuries of architecture into something more modern. Yes, something dull to take the place of what was once exciting and mysterious.

Vian, in a mixture of great humor and a huge amount of disgust, introduces various 'eccentric' characters in this 'desert' adventure, all of them in a world similar to Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, where there is a tinge of darkness and anything is possible, except happiness.

ENOCHIAN WORLD of Aleister Crowley : Enochian Sex Magick - by Aleister Crowley



Crowley's work was the launching pad for all others that followed, it was originally published in 1912 and lifted the veil on the Inner Order of the Golden Dawn and revealed for the first time the instructions that bridge the gap between the material and the spiritual worlds by the use of Enochian Sex Magick.

Aleister Crowley (1875-1947) was one of this century's most profound students of Yoga, Qabalah and Magick and is recognized as being the first Westerner to give initiation ritual a truly scientific methodology.

Don Milo DuQuette and Christopher Hyatt, Ph.D - bring forty years of experience in the esoteric field of study to help show the student how they can use this powerful, yet often misunderstood, system of Magick immediately.

THE CARNIVALS OF LIFE AND DEATH: My Profane Youth 1913-1935 - by James Shelby Downard

THE CARNIVALS OF LIFE & DEATH
My Profane Youth 1913-1935
By James Shelby Downard

“The most absurd, the most incredible, the most ridiculous Illuminati theory of them all.”
— Robert Anton Wilson, author of The Illuminatus! Trilogy

James Shelby Downard just might be the most controversial conspiracy theorist of the 20th century -- In his essay “ King-Kill 33° ” Downard has notoriously laid out the involvement of Freemasonry in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy -- 'The Carnivals of Life and Death' is Downard’s autobiographical account of his early years in the deep South, when Ku Klux Klansmen and Freemasons, pulled him into many strange and violent affairs.

Downard does furious battle with both factions and many others. 'Hoodwinked' and set up time and time again, he narrowly escapes numerous attempts on his life. All the while the continuous message of importance seems to be 'nothing is as it seems'.

Adam Parfrey, who introduced Downard to readers in his Apocalypse Culture book compilations, provides the Foreword, based on his personal experiences with the reclusive and now-deceased conspiracy theorist. A real roller-coaster ride of a read !

"Because the dead and deadening scenery of the American city of dreadful night is so utterly devoid of mystery, so thoroughly flat-footed, sterile and infantile, so burdened with the illusory gloss of 'baseball-hot dogs-apple pie and Chevrolet' that it is somehow outside the psycho-sexual domain. The eternal pagan psychodrama is escalated under these 'modern' conditions precisely because sorcery is not what twentieth century man can accept as real." --- James Shelby Downard from his essay: " King Kill 33* "

What You Should Know About THE GOLDEN DAWN - By Israel Regardie



What You Should Know About THE GOLDEN DAWN
By Israel Regardie - Foreward by Christopher S. Hyatt

At an early age, Israel Regardie served as Aleister Crowley's personal assistant and secretary. In this book, Regardie relates his personal experiences and associations with various people and several secret societies which have exerted great influences on the development of Modern Occultism. Regardie is in the tradition of other great Occultists such as H.P. Blavatsky, W. B. Yeats, A. E. Waite etc...

Regardie reveals the mysteries that surround THE HERMETIC ORDER OF THE GOLDEN DAWN, THE ROSICRUCIAN FRATERNITY and THE MASONIC LODGE.

From his close personal relations he reveals the true nature of such leading Occultists as Aleister Crowley, Dion Fortune, MacGregor Mathers, W. W. Westcott and others.

This Sixth Revised Edition includes new material by modern adepts from the Golden Dawn, documents from the period when Regardie worked closely with Crowley which demonstrate his membership in the O.T.O. and the A:.A:. as well, and some unpublished material from Regardie's archive available here for the first time to readers.

Israel Regardie (1907-1985) was considered by many to be the last living Adept of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. He worked with Aleister Crowley as his personal secretary for years, and progressed into a leading Occultist and author of many books on esoteric subjects. He was also a practicing chiropractor, psychiatrist and therapist.

COSMIC TRIGGER Volume 1: The Final Secret of the Illuminati - by Robert Anton Wilson


COSMIC TRIGGER Volume 1: The Final Secret of the Illuminati

By Robert Anton Wilson
Foreword by Timothy Leary

*From the Preface: "Cosmic Trigger deals with a process of deliberately induced brain change... this is called 'initiation' or 'vision quest' in many traditional societies... and a dangerous variety of self-psychotherapy in modern terminology. I do not recommend it for everybody... the main thing I learned is that 'reality' is always plural and mutable." "......I therefore want to make it even clearer than ever before that; I DO NOT BELIEVE ANYTHING."

Some topic examples:
The Sirius Connection, Sufis, Babylon, Zen Tradition, JFK, Millbrook, Illuminati, Aleister Crowley, Queen of Space, Karma, Witchcraft, Tesla. Mothman Prophecy, Weird Critters, Discordian Huxley, Egyptian Gods, The Holy Guardian Angel etc... etc...

"Wilson managed to reverse every mental polarity in me, as if I had been pulled through infinity. I was astonished and delighted." --- Philip K. Dick
