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.
