The Subtlety or Force Encampment has released the third issue of its internationally sold quarterly periodical, Doomsayer’s Digest, and it is now available for purchase. There are only 210 in print with less than 150 remaining!
Doomsayer’s Digest attempts to bring an academic rigor into esoteric studies and creative writing. It does not feature poetry, art, or editorials, but specializes its pages to a scientific pursuit of hermetica. It combines traditionalist analysis, academic standards, and subject matter relevant to Thelemic culture, history, and interests.
In Volume 2, Issue 1, 2009’s Spring issue, there are three featured articles, three rare Crowley reprints, and one Ol’ Skoo Rap Tree 4 Life Here’s the skinny:
