The Diary of a Drug Fiend - Aleister Crowley Summary

This is a true story... It is a terrible story; but it is also a story of hope and of beauty. Written by Aleister Crowley, Diary of a Drug Fiend tells the story of young Peter Pendragon and his lover Louise Laleham, and their adventures traveling through Europe in a cocaine and heroin haze. The bohemian couples’ binges produce visions and poetic prophecies, but when their supply inevitably runs dry they find themselves faced with the reality of their drug addiction. Through the guidance of King Lamus, a master adept, they use the application of practical Magick to free themselves from addiction. Released in as his first published novel in 1922 and dubbed “a book for burning” by the papers of the time, Diary of a Drug Fiend reveals the poet, the lover, and the profound adept that was Aleister Crowley.

The Two Novels of Aleister Crowley - Aleister Crowley Summary

Aleister Crowley is best known for his work in the occult, his writings on Magick, and creating the religion of Thelema. He was a giant of his time with many talents and, some argue, many flaws as well. Of all his gifts, his writing was the vehicle that drove his genius. His Book of the Law and other mystical works are widely read by students of occult philosophy. Few, however, are familiar with his more artistic endeavors, including his two literary novels: Diary of a Drug Fiend & Moonchild.For whatever reason, stories help readers integrate and understand larger themes and ideas present in the narrative. Perhaps that is why people look to allegories like Cain and Abel when trying to understand the nature of murder, or recite The Boy Who Cried Wolf when teaching their children not to lie. The truths appearing in fiction take no intellectual effort to grasp; they work subtly on the reader's mind in a way that is easier to digest than the cold, hard philosopher's stone. The great religions of the world understand this. Crowley took note as well. His two novels carry the message of Thelema. The characters and themes in the books were imagined and created to dramatize and illustrate its practice. The reader sees Thelema in action and learns of Crowley's broader beliefs and philosophy as the drama unfolds. "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law; Love is the law, love under will." A short phrase with monumental import. In Diary of a Drug Fiend, Crowley shows its power to bring two hopeless addicts out of a pit of hell. In Moonchild, he demonstrates the fate of those who would misinterpret its meaning and be seduced by the temptations of Black Magick. Whether intended or not, The Two Novels of Aleister Crowley provide a more compelling case for his beliefs than his other works ever could.

Diary of a Dope Fiend and Other Stories - Richard West Anderson Summary

This is a collection of short stories that reads like a novel. Starting with the juvenile innocents of tubing down a turbulent flooding river in California, the ride doesn't stop. The adventure continues with riding freight trains and hitchhiking across the United States, and then purchasing marijuana in the remote mountains of Mexico. On to buying hashish in the exotic and tempestuous streets of Beirut. The years of heroin addiction and the subsequent untimely arrest in California. And the prison years, where drug and alcohol use and abuse are prevalent.Panhandling for cheap wine in Oregon. And the enervating decline with drug abuse, prostitution, and the final dissolution. It's a ride the reader won't soon forget. This medley of the pugnacious struggle with indomitable drugs is told with the mellifluous voice of a valid raconteur. The humorous vein found in adverse conditions is refreshing.

Aleister Crowley Collection - Aleister Crowley Summary

"Teach us Your real secret, Master! how to become invisible, how to acquire love, and oh! beyond all, how to make gold.” Fans of Aleister Crowley are in for a treat. Included in this first volume of Crowley's Collected Works: THE BOOK OF THE LAW – SPECIAL EDITION Dictated to Crowley in Cairo between noon and 1:00p.m. on three successive days in April 1904, The Book of the Law is the source book and key for Crowley students and for the occult in general. The holy text that forms the basis of Crowley's belief system, Thelema, was transmitted to him by the entity known as Aiwass over the course of three fateful April days in 1904. With his wife Rose as the medium for what would become known as the Cairo Working, Crowley dutifully transcribed the communications on hotel stationery. The pamphlet has since passed into occult legend. Its full title is Liber AL vel Legis, sub figura CCXX, as delivered by XCIII=418 to DCLXVI, and it is commonly referred to as The Book of the Law. Although the "messenger" of AL was Aiwass, Aiwass presents the Book as an expression of three god-forms of the three chapters, Nuit, Hadit, and Ra-Hoor-Khuit. 'The Book of the Law' has been fully optimized for the Kindle in a special edition that includes an active table of contents and an image gallery showcasing the history of occult symbolism. THE BOOK OF LIES – SPECIAL EDITION The esoteric masterpiece by one of the foremost mystics of all times. Complete with commentary and explanation for each chapter from Mr. Crowley. As Crowley describes it: "This book deals with many matters on all planes of the very highest importance. It is an official publication for Babes of the Abyss, but is recommended even to beginners as highly suggestive. Chapter 44 of the book describes the ritual named the Mass of the Phoenix. This is not a facsimile but a fully updated edition optimized for E-readers which fully replicates the authenticity of the original, down to Crowley's typos and unorthodox formatting. DIARY OF A DRUG FIEND “Her eyes glittered, her lips twittered, her cheeks glowed like fresh blown buds in spring. She was the spirit of cocaine incarnate; cocaine made flesh. Her mere existence made the Universe infinitely exciting. I was aware of nothing but a passionate craving for drugs. I wanted them physically as I had never wanted anything in my life before. I wanted them mentally, too. They, and they only, would clear my mind of its confusion, and show me a way out of this rotten mess.” Often overlooked in discussions of the great narcotics memoirs, Crowley's rarely read 1922 work deserves to be mentioned alongside such addiction classics as 'Confessions of an English Opium Eater,' 'Naked Lunch,' 'Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas' and 'Trainspotting.' Crowley's 'diary' is a hilarious, outrageous drug-fueled romp but also offers fascinating first-hand insight into early recreational heroin and cocaine use. Not long after its publication, the British press dubbed Crowley “The Wickedest Man In The World.” Follow the harrowing escapades of lovers Peter Pendragon and Louise Laleham as they embark on a drug-fueled bender through Europe and encounter the enigmatic magician who could save them. All three occult classics for one unbeatable price!

The Drug and Other Stories - Aleister Crowley Summary

Edited, with an Introduction, by William Breeze. Foreword by David Tibet. This volume brings together the uncollected short fiction of the poet, writer and religious philosopher Aleister Crowley (1875 - 1947). Crowley was a successful critic, editor and author of fiction from 1908 to 1922, and his short stories are long overdue for discovery. Of the fifty-two stories in the present volume, only thirty were published in his lifetime. Most of the rest appear here for the first time. Like their author, Crowley's stories are fun, smart, witty, thought-provoking and sometimes unsettling. They are set in places he had lived and knew well: Belle Epoque Paris, Edwardian London, pre-revolutionary Russia and America during the first World War. The title story The Drug stands as one of the first - if not the first - accounts of a psychedelic experience. His Black and Silver is a knowing early noir discovery that anticipates an entire genre. Atlantis is a masterpiece of occult fantasy, a dark satire that can stand with Samuel Butler's Erewhon. Frank Harris considered The Testament of Magdalen Blair the most terrifying tale ever written. Extensive editorial end-notes give full details about the stories.
