A title like The Grimoire of Aleister Crowley set my expectation for an interesting scholarly examination of ritual fragments culled from the OTO archives. There is some of that within this book, but much more is included. This book truly is a functional grimoire.

Rodney Orpheus is a seasoned ritualist with decades of experience. His experience shines forth as he fills in the gaps within some of those fragmentary rituals. Rodney explains exactly how changes or additions fit into the rituals while taking into consideration the point of Aleister Crowley's lifetime in which the various rituals were conceived.

Additionally, the Grimoire of Aleister Crowley includes original group rituals which fit nicely into the Thelemic milieu. Rodney even includes a chapter in which he walks through the process of creating a functional group ritual, step-by-step. That chapter alone will be invaluable for new ritualists! It is evident that each ritual has been tested several times in order to ensure the proper blocking and flow. Furthermore, each ritual begins with a list of requirements such as the number of participants, time requirements, complexity of setup, amount of memorization required, and equipment needed.

This is not a book to be read and placed aside. This is a functional grimoire that is structured for ease of use. Thank you Rodney, Catherine, Adrian, and everyone else involved for producing such a marvelous book and for filling what was a gaping hole in the Thelemic corpus.

93. The Grimoire of Aleister Crowley by Rodney Orpheus is a shining star on the Horizon that has truly been a long time in coming. This pronounced work of group ritual with step by step instruction easy to understand and to follow by any group of Thelemites willing to step up do the work. Truly in line with the original works of the Master Therion himself. Mr. Orpheus with his long history of Thelemic studies and practice has graced us all with this long awaited masterpiece. Verily I say unto you: "This most coherent work will ring true for generations of Thelemites to come...." On a daily basis this golden tome inspires and motivates me upward and onward. I canot thank the author enough for this precious blessing. 93 93/93

With equal parts creativity, focused intent, and daring, Rodney Orpheus has composed a worthy new edition to the Thelemic canon. The result is both unique and entirely pragmatic and useful to any body or group interested in Thelemic or Western esotericism in general. The uiniqueness of this work lies primarily in the fact that rather than producing another standard solitary ritual tome, the author has chosen to use the book to provide structure for Thelemic ritual in a group setting. This choice is one that manages to bring new life to esoteric bodies, providing fodder for the enhancement of communal Magick and contributes greately to the brotherhood and sisterhood of the O.T.O. and other magical traditions. Additionally the materials provided in this work are comprised of uncommon and some, up until now, unfinished source materials expanding the resources of these organizations.

Overall the format of the book is outstanding both physically and editorially. The hardcover production, design, and wonderful illustrations provided by Cahthryn Orchard result in a volume that would meet or exceed the standards of any long time publishing house. This in itself is a major accomplishment for Abrahadabra Press, a relatively new player in esoteric publishing. Beyond the physical, the book is exceptionally written, engaging, and organizes it's content in such as way as to leave the reader and without question or issue as far as how the rituals are to be performed. For those of us who read and then re-read, perform and then slowly perfect rituals from other sources, the Grimoire of Alesiter Crowley immediately give one the keys to an already finely tuned vehicle rather than dropping a jalopy at our front door and requiring us to get it running.

The Grimoire of Aleister Crowley is a good book to study from pertaining to group ritual and some practices of Thelema. Crowley is (was) a great author and poet as well as an inspirational light to glean from if you're seeking esoteric knowledge.

This book is a great book since of course all its composed of is the rituals of Aleister Crowley and how he practiced them. I find that my favorite ritual was the "Vel Reguli." Anyway I would reccommend it to anyone looking for just the rituals of Thelema. I feel that the only essential Thelemite ritual that it's missing is the "Mass of the Pheonix."
