"This book will be of interest to anyone curious about the New York occult scene of this period, as well as to some students of occultism and modern popular culture." Bradford Lee Eden, Library Journal November 1, 2012
James Wasserman has been a member of Ordo Templi Orientis since 1976. He has been described as a "founding father" of the modern O.T.O. and has played a key role in numerous seminal publications of Aleister Crowley's literary corpus. He is responsible for the widely celebrated Chronicle edition of The Book of Going Forth by Day, The Egyptian Book of the Dead. His numerous writings and editorial efforts maintain a focus on spirituality, creative mythology, secret societies, history, religion, and politics. He is a passionate advocate of individual liberty.
He has appeared in numerous documentaries on The History Channel, National Geographic, and The Discovery Channel, addressed the National Press Club on esoteric symbolism, and been a guest on Coast to Coast AM, Thelema Now! and other radio broadcasts and podcasts.
This is more the diary of a hippie drug addict than a memoir of the occult. A bit of a disappointment and not worth the money.Published 1 month ago by Ron Lo
