New book “Aleister Crowley’s Influence on Pop-Occulture”

My new book “Aleister Crowley’s Influence on Pop-Occulture” is now available in paperback and Kindle ebook versions, be sure to see here first for my special offer to save you some money.

The book is subtitled, “How an Obscure Occultist Influences Culture from Beyond the Grave.”

Magickian Aleister Crowley referred to himself as Baphomet, The Beast 666, To Mega Therion, Frater Perdurabo and even Little Sunshine. He, in turn, was referred to as “the wickedest man in the world.”

Find out how he has been influencing music, books, comics, cartoons, TV shows, and movies for decades—even from beyond the grave.

“I am the Snake that giveth Knowledge & Delight and bright glory,
and stir the hearts of men with drunkenness. To worship me take
wine and strange drugs whereof I will tell my prophet, & be drunk thereof!”
—Aleister Crowley supposedly channeling Aiwass
