I’ve not seen it announced elsewhere, so it’s worth mentioning that two new issues of the most important Thelemic Journal are due for publication this month. Red Flame issues 10 and 11 concern themselves with one of Crowley’s most enigmatic and influential students: Jane Wolfe… I quote directly from the essential Red Flame web site…

Jane Wolfe, although relatively unknown within modern magickal circles, was an extraordinarily distinctive individual whose story has been crying out to be told. She was a noted actress who starred in numerous silent films, most notably Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm (1917) but, in all probability, she is most famous for being a follower of the Great Beast 666, Aleister Edward Crowley. This book not only gives a rare glimpse into her movie career but also into what really occurred behind the scenes at Crowley's Thelemic Order at Cefalu, since Jane was one of the female followers who actually lived at his infamous Abbey. She was also one of the original founding members of Agape Lodge of the Ordo Templi Orientis in southern California, as well as being its last Lodge Master. What is revealed in this book about Jane, Jack Parsons, Wilfred T. Smith, Karl Germer and a host of other characters makes it a must for all historians. It is an equally essential read for all females in magick and the Thelemic movement because this is the first time where the public is given an honest and complete picture of one of Aleister Crowley's female followers, as told from the point-of-view of a woman, but not just any woman. It is written by Jane Wolfe's personal student Phyllis Seckler. It was formerly serialize in a publication known as In The Continuum almost twenty-five years ago. With this new edition there is much added information, it's footnoted, indexed and it has numerous rare photographs, many rarely seen before.
