  • Portable Darkness


In bringing together Crowleyís best writings, editor Scott Michaelsen makes Crowleyan philosophy both accessible and intelligible. As an intellectual and mystic, Crowley devoted his life to the study of Qabalah, gematria, numerology, astrology, myth, glyphs, yoga, and linguistics.

In Portable Darkness, Michaelsen has sifted through this vast oeuvre in search of those works which best display and illuminate the razor-sharp insight for which Crowley has become known.

The selections in Portable Darkness are organized thematically according to Crowleyís favourite subjects: Qabalah and Magick, Yoga and Magick, Sex and Magick, Magick and Law, Magick and Lies. Accompanied by Michaelsenís cogent essays, these texts represent the essential Aleister Crowley, guiding novice and adept alike through the complexities of his notoriously impenetrable writings. Enlightening and revelatory, PORTABLE DARKNESS is an indispensable lexicon for all those with an interest in the occult.

With forewords by Robert Anton Wilson and Genesis P-Orridge, a magick chronology, bibliography, and 12-page photo section.
