More About the Author
I was introduced to Dungeons & Dragons at the age of 10 and H.P. Lovecraft just a few years after that. They both had a profound effect on me. The wife can't fathom why a grown man likes to pretend that he's an eldritch wizard, sword-wielding warrior, or bloodthirsty demon, but oh well. That's her loss. ;)
Focusing on paper & pencil, tabletop roleplaying games (like D&D) allows me to finger paint in reality... a strange, new reality created by the interconnected imaginations of myself and my fellow gamers. I love the roleplaying hobby, and writing RPG books is my current passion.

Buyers beware: Venger Satanis, aka Darrick Dishaw, is an admitted plagiarist. He was removed and the hardcover versions of this book were aborted from Waning Moon Publishers; and later Nephilim Press when they learned of his lies and misdeeds. This book steals information and intellectual property from Wikipedia. See all the details on the website 'Papers Falling From An Attic Window'; which is hosted by Lovecraftian scholar Dan Harms, as there is a large section on the plagiarism.
Furthermore, Disahw also takes most of his fourth way descriptions from P.D. Ouspensky's THE FOURTH WAY, and essentially uses G.I. Gurdgieff's essays as his own. He also takes lines from Phil Hine's PRIME CHAOS and CONDENSED CHAOS regarding Paradim Evolution and the general description of Chaos Magic, and he "borrows" his text on Neuro-Linguistic Programming taking both from Hine and he tweaks works by Fritz Perls, Virginia Satir, and Milton Erickson, yet he doesn't cite them as sources. He has also stolen and copied artwork by Peter Carroll.
This is the fraud you're dealing with. "AFAKE!"
Now that we have that ugly business out of the way, it's fair to say Dishaw is the Uwe Boll of the occult world. He's a irrelevant clown, and is so pathetic, he actually makes hack author Raven Silverwolf look good. What does this book have to offer? Nothing. Anyone who's read it knows there is no religion, magick, or occult significance. Andone who claims otherwise, is either artifically trying to prop up Dishaw, or doesn't know what real magick is. Dishaw is a fake and a liar, just as his plagiarism demonstrated.Read more ›
I downloaded for free Liber AOS, and never read it.
I was going to read Cthulhu Cult and had talked about it with Venger for a long time, then dropped my decision when I saw Venger for who he really was.
The empire of the Cult of Cthulhu, was based on the flawed presumption that he could institute a lovecraftian theology.
There were nice videos, including one I miss where they held a ritual, but since then nothing has happened, the cult has degenerated and gone the way of the Cult of Carbon and Al Gore.
Venger was always advertising for himself as a leader, when he strikes me as having absolutely no leadership talent whatsoever.
I had used for too long to consider the Cult of Cthulhu as a litterary society rather than a cult.
Now Venger's empire has collapsed, if it ever was an empire in the first place existing anyplace else than in his mind.
Then he tried to mess up with the Order of Nine Angles.
Despite numerous warnings from others, he didn't listen.
Now he's on the run from reality, on the run from common sense, on the run from authenticity, from intellectual self - honesty.
He's even on the run from egotism, and especially his own ego.
When you're no longer running from your ego you can confront it head - on, instead of denying it like some stupid New Age movements have tried to do.
Lovecraft himself would turn in his grave if reality was able to provide him with the means necessary to do it - I would if I was Lovecraft.
So let's put it honest here - Venger is a fraud.
He has been exposed on a few places on the internet as a fraud and it's only so understandable why.Read more ›
First off, I joined his online forum/cult website 2 years ago because I wanted to join a social site for Lovecraft fans and occult enthusiasts. I officially joined by answering three questions Venger wanted people to answer and I didnt even know what I was answering but yet I got in and that is when I began to see how much of a mindless fake he was.
Second, To anyone who wishes to buy his book BE WARNED!!! it is filled with plagerized material and you wanna know where from? Wikipedia. yes Wikipedia, and anything else in the book is stuff he ripped off other people and occult/philasophical groups. An author by the name of Daniel Harms exposed Venger for the fraud he is on his website:[...]
So this is my brief review/warning for this piece of junk in an effort to save your hard earned money going to waste but if you actually want this book just go to Venger's youtube and ask for a free PDF....yeah keep the $25!
