Thanks for the link. UK members may be interested to know that it can be ordered through Amazon.co.uk. I've placed my order...

Blatant advertising I know, but I will also be stocking copies of THEE PSYCHICK BIBLE when they arrive, cheaper than Amazon.uk too! 😀

On a related note, looking forward to receiving my black version of the following, recommended ritual loop machine:

Free postage if you order through Amazon U.S. and select the Super-Saver Postage option. Can't wait for this one.

Does anyone know if the DVD is included if you order through Amazon or anyone else apart from Feral House?

I'm anxiously awaiting mine's arrival. Looks like I've got some hefty reading to do over my holiday vacation time.

I ordered this straight away. It is beautifully produced & the dvd (while a bit rough quality-wise-at least the oldest PTV material) is worthwhile for fans (tho' if you're in UK & can't play the DVD the book alone is worth the price!). The material is very avant garde art/chaos magick oriented. I'd say philosophy of art weighs in almost equally with occult influences. If you have ANY interest in Wm S Burroughs/Throbbing Gristle/PTV methods of art & thought do not delay in getting this-if you are looking for Thelemic/666 related stuff, there's SOME here but not much.

True that, Xtianzombie. Although if you live in the UK I imagine you can still play the DVD on your home computer, much like we can play PAL DVDs over here. Fascinating book.

Oh-Yeah! Quite right! In fact the older video footage might be a bit less headache inducing via PC. Thanks for chiming in!

Personally I thought the book is filled to overflowing Thelemic thought. Not in a traditional form but in one that has evolved from Crowley and progressed. Much of the book is extremely valuable to those Thelemic magicians who operate outside the limitations of a structured system. It boarders on Chaos Magick in parts but then every act you carry out is a magickal one.

Some of the essays are very thought provoking to say the least and takes a lot from Aleister Crowley, Austin Osman Spare, William S Burroughs and Brion Gysin etc.

Recommended IF you are a Thelemite!

A lot of people I've known (including the Caliph, who's jammed and recorded with him) regard G. P. Orridge as *highly* Thelemic. Haven't got the chance to meet him yet, I hear he's a very personable fellow. Obviously a genius level IQ. He sees his work as 'the next step' from Crowley, and there's certainly something to be said for that. It's a very dense book. I think I'll have to have to live with it for a while before I can claim to have absorbed much of its' essence...

Yes-definitely an evolution of/from Thelema. But not EXPLICITLY Thelemic (IMO). P-Orridges forward to PORTABLE DARKNESS (selections of 666 writings in all fields) is very insightful.

What is EXPLICITLY Thelemic?
This is just a question, I mean no ill or harm.

There was a copy listed on Amazon for over £500 a few weeks back. Whoever listed it either thougth better of the price and lowered it or actually managed to sell it... 😯

Hi Gents,
Thanks but Feral are out it appears. I posted re this item when it was first published and was waiting for a recommendation from those who had read it. I left it too long and I got burned, "that'll learn me".

A softcover edition is now available.

I missed the original edition since I had limited funds at the time and opted for Jung's Red Book, not taking into account that Thee Psychick Bible might go out of print sooner.

Genesis P Orridge was a huge inspiration throughout my early adolescence. I recall pouring over whatever interviews I could find on the internet or print magazines, although musically I've always favored Coil, NWW & C93. Speaking of which, I thought the brief reference about those three groups' "delving into the darkest and most unsavory aspects of TG's legacy" was one-dimensional, especially regarding Nurse With Wound who distanced themselves from dark music, the Industrial scene and also the occult.

Anyway, the softcover will run you $30 in the States and a few dollars more in Canada. I grabbed mine from Conspiracy Culture in Toronto - I couldn't find it in any other bookstore.

509.

At least he mentions them... Might be the closest thing John and Sleazy will ever get for credit for their contribution to the TOPY materials.

I will pick this one up anyway... I kinda regret selling my original white paperback and my copy of Esoterrorist. I wonder if those essays are in this new edition.

While I know next to nothing about TOPY as they were a bit before my time, I think I'll pick this up too. I trust Scott's judgement here. He said its worth buying, for a second time, then I'll check it out too!

I got no. 23 as well (ordered new from Amazon a couple of months after it came out). I wondered if everyone got that for a laugh.. Then I saw Paul got a different number, and then thought maybe I was just really lucky.

There's a great essay on Austin Spare which, for me, was worth the price of admission. Then again, these days I'm paying $100 for books that are less than 150 pages, so what do I know? 😉
