Now available from Weiser Antiquarian Books:

Netherwood: Last Resort of Aleister Crowley

by "A Gentleman of Hastings" [Antony Clayton]
with contributions from
Frater Amor Fati [Gary Lachman]
& The English Heretic [Andy Sharp]

Foreword by Anok Pe [David Tibet]

A fascinating study of Netherwood, the guest-house in Hastings (England) and the time spent there by its most famous resident, Aleister Crowley. In addition to a background history of the building, the book includes a lengthy chapter on each of the years that Crowley spent there, exploring the daily life of the Beast in his final years, and his interactions with other guests and those who visited him, including Kenneth Grant, David Curwen, John Symonds and others. The author, Antony Clayton, lives in Hastings and is an established writer whose previous books include "Subterranean City: Beneath the Streets of London," "The Folklore of London," and "Decadent London." The book opens with a Foreword by Hastings resident, musician and Crowley aficionado David Tibet, and has additional essays "The Mark of the Beast" by occult researcher, musician and author Gary Lachman and "Conjuror with Belief: Aossic in the Atom Age," by Andy Sharp writing as "The English Heretic," the collaborative occult/musical/experiential project in which he features. Generously illustrated with many seldom-seen photographs of Netherwood, Crowley and friends, as well as colour photographs of some of Crowley's artwork that probably once graced the walls of the building.

Conference Notice – 1st call for papers

South-East Asia as a Crossroads for Buddhist Exchange: pioneer European Buddhists and Asian Buddhist networks 1860-1960

Study of Religions Department, University College Cork, Ireland

13-15 September 2012

The recent discovery of the extraordinary life of 'The Irish Buddhist' U Dhammaloka (documented in the special issue of Contemporary Buddhism 11:2, December 2010) has stimulated new avenues of research into numerous significant but neglected East-West and global Buddhist encounters. This conference focuses on forgotten or under-represented Buddhist pioneers, their connections and collaborations, and the contribution of these individuals and networks to the construction of Buddhist modernities.

The Scarifyers: The Horror Of Loch Ness

Written by LAShTAL. Posted in Aleister Crowley.

Scarifyers

Celebrated speed ace Sir Malcolm Campbell (Alex Lowe) is carrying out speed trials on Loch Ness when a bank of fog suddenly descends. When it lifts, Sir Malcolm and his boat have mysteriously vanished...

MI:13’s Harry Crow (David Warner) and Professor Dunning (Terry Molloy) are soon shaking up the sleepy loch-side village of Inverfarigaig. Aided by kindly local GP Dr Pippin (Philip Madoc), they discover a connection to the erstwhile Laird of Boleskine and Abertarff - occultist, bon viveur and occasional nudist Aleister Crowley (David Benson).

Crow and Dunning swiftly realise that there’s more to Inverfarigaig than meets the eye: fraudulent Nessie hunters, demonic bed sheets, Caledonian witches and things that go bump in the night. Joined by Crowley, their investigations into Sir Malcolm’s disappearance will lead them into terrible danger, as an old foe threatens to unleash... THE HORROR OF LOCH NESS.

OUP: Aleister Crowley and Western Esotericism

Written by newneubergOuch2. Posted in Aleister Crowley.

Available soon from Oxford University Press...

Aleister Crowley and Western Esotericism

Edited by Henrik Bogdan and Martin P. Starr

Hardback, 384 pages
Aug 2012
Price: $99.00

Henrik Bogdan and Martin P. Starr offer the first comprehensive examination of one of the twentieth century's most distinctive occult iconoclasts. Aleister Crowley (1875-1947) was a study in contradictions. He was born into a Fundamentalist Christian family, then educated at Cambridge where he experienced both an intellectual liberation from his religious upbringing and a psychic awakening that led him into the study of magic. He was a stock figure in the tabloid press of his day, vilified during his life as a traitor, drug addict and debaucher; yet he became known as the perhaps most influential thinker in contemporary esotericism.

AC for Mayor of London

Written by Thiebes. Posted in Aleister Crowley.

With thanks to Thiebes…

The UK won’t hold elections for Prime Minister 2012, but London will elect its mayor this year. In this post, we’ll look at why you should vote for Aleister Crowley instead of Boris Johnson, Ken Livingstone, or Brian Paddick; and we’ll have a special suggestion for UKIP.



It’s true: Aleister Crowley is dead. Sure, he tore up his British passport and declared independence for Ireland. We still believe he is the best candidate for mayor of London. After all, Aleister Crowley was named one of the “Greatest 100 Britons” in a 2002 BBC poll, and he invented the use of the “V for Victory” as a magical foil to the Nazis’ use of the swastika. Surely we needn’t point out that Aleister Crowley lived in London for much of his life, and that he is probably as well-known there as Mickey Mouse is in the U.S.
