The Legend of Aleister Crowley
Exposes the vicious media campaign of vilification
pursued against the Magus of the New Aeon.
You will find the Truth behind the Big Lie
“The reader may thus approach Crowley himself either as
Ipsissimus, the incarnation of the Logos of the New Aeon, or as a
human enigma.” —The Times Literary Supplement
“…the final, occult, unmentionable and esoteric secret of the
rascal masters is simple: Follow nature and do just what you feel
like doing—without hesitation, guilt or regret.” —Alan Watts
It was in the Spring of the year 1929 that the Surete Generale
sprung a surprise on the unsuspecting Crowley menage.… We
were all handed expulsion papers. Leave with twenty-four hours!
—Israel Regardie, from the Introduction
You’ve probably heard things about Aleister Crowley (1875–1947).
Perhaps you’ve heard monstrous things—hideous things—
terrifying things—disgusting and ghastly things. On the other
hand, you might have heard wonderful things—funny things
—astonishing things—inspiring things—even supernatural and
sacred things? … Detractors are quick to vilify him as the Devil
himself—insane, perverse, and evil; while his admirers lionize
him as a genius; an enlightened holy man; a saint; a Buddha;
Prophet of a New Aeon.
—Lon Milo DuQuette from the Foreword
