New PDF release: Aleister Crowley - Revolt of the Magicians

By James M. Bratkowsky,Lon Milo DuQuette

The dawning 20th century isn't really large enough for eccentric genius
Aleister Crowley. he's an acclaimed poet, chess grasp, world-class
mountaineer, and doubtless the main passionately liberated guy in
Victorian London. His actual devotion, besides the fact that, is magic...and the
search for his personal soul.

An notorious fourteenth century Arabic ebook of magic survives the
centuries to spawn the formation of a hidden society of magicians in
London. The Order is led by way of occult pupil MacGregor Mathers and his
wife Moina, who declare to be in contact with mystery masters that give
them ever-increasing magical wisdom and gear. For numerous years
the Order grows, drawing on new participants from the giants of British
commerce, artwork, and literature.

Suddenly, on the top of the Order's impact, MacGregor and Moina
appear to lose touch with the key masters. They movement to Paris and
ignore the Order's plea for extra teachings and better initiations. The
London resort threatens to sever ties with them and make magical
contact with the key masters themselves. 5 very well-known members
lead the revolt:

*the poet William Butler Yeats
*the playwright Maude Gonne
*Bram Stoker, writer of Dracula
*Florence Farr, the main acclaimed actress of her day
*and one of many wealthiest girls on the earth, tea heiress Annie Horniman.

Crowley naively joins the Order at first of the revolt.
Blinded by means of his severe non secular aspirations, he's not purely drawn
into the clash, yet unwittingly turns into the catalyst that brings
about their destruction.
