We are very pleased to be the bookselling partner for our old chum Viktor Wynd’s series of Zoom lectures at his Museum of Curiosities, Fine Art & UnNatural History. The books will be delivered with signed bookplates, so please be patient – we will process the orders as soon as they come in, but getting the bookplates sent out, signed, posted back to us, placed in the books, and then the books posted out… well, it all means delivery is not immediate! It could take up to 6 weeks for delivery.

To accompany Gary’s lecture, we’re offering signed copies of his book Aleister Crowley : Magick, Rock and Roll, and the Wickedest Man in the World.

This definitive work on the occult’s “great beast” traces the arc of his controversial life and influence on rock-and-roll giants, from the Rolling Stones to Led Zeppelin to Black Sabbath.

When Aleister Crowley died in 1947, he was not an obvious contender for the most enduring pop-culture figure of the next century. But twenty years later, Crowley’s name and image were everywhere. The Beatles put him on the cover of  Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. The Rolling Stones were briefly serious devotees. Today, his visage hangs in goth clubs, occult temples, and college dorm rooms, and his methods of ceremonial magick animate the passions of myriad occultists and spiritual seekers.

Aleister Crowley is more than just a biography of this compelling, controversial, and divisive figure — it’s also a portrait of his unparalleled influence on modern pop culture.

Please remember: delivery is not immediate! It could take up to 6 weeks for delivery.
