More About the Author

I have been nominated for and not won very prestigious awards. Last year alone I lost both the Shirley Jackson Award and the International Horror Critics Award. I am hoping to not win other awards of note in coming years. I had been cited in Best American Short Stories (as well as 70 other citing in one "best of the year" list or another).

I have had 12 books and about 400 other items published --ranging from poems in Chinese, trucker fiction in Truckers USA, a story in an honest-to-god Norton Anthology, a book on the Greek Magical Papyri, more Cthulhu Mythos stories than Lovecraft himself, a story in a Norwegian anarchist magazine. I have guest-curated at an art museum, shot fireworks professionally, been the head of a pagan religion, and worked in a corndog factory

I was born on Walpurgisnacht (April 30), 1960 in Amarillo, Texas -- a town whose major industry was the assemblage of plutonium enriched parts of atomic weapons. My mother's family had share-cropped at the first ranch in the world to use barbed wire. Mys work has been translated into 12 languages. In 1988 Ie watched a documentary entitled "Satanism in America" --a cheap piece of yellow
journalism that promoted the (now debunked) myth of "Satanic Crime." I was impressed with the calm logical answers of Dr. Michael Aquino and sent him an approving letter. My letter noted that I did not understand how "Working in a group could strengthen individuality." Dr. Aquino humorously
challenged me to join and explain it to them. Eight years later I becamethe High Priest of Set and a Magus (V*) of the Temple. My major Initiator was Dr. Stephen E. Flowers, and I have written four books on Left Hand Path topics for Flowers' Runa Raven Press. In addition to my
prose, I has published a volume of poetry, written lyrics for rock-n-roll songs, and been in a documentary about his home town, _Plutonium Circus_.

My formative teachers include Paulea Patterson, whp taught Latin at Tascosa High School in Amarillo, from whom I gained a love of classics, a high school counselor who told me that because of his ever dyslexia he should not ever even think
of becoming a writer, and Bruce Sterling, Austin Science Fiction writer, who founded the important writers' group Turkey City. I teaches a variety of on-line creative writing classes for UCLA.

Format: Paperback
Don Webb's work, the first public offering from the Order of Setne Khamuast within the Temple of Set, stands as one of the first in what will hopefully be many antidotes against marshmallowy occultism.
Using the same general research method that Stephen Edred Flowers (aka Edred Thorrson) used to reawaken the Runic Tradition Webb dives deep into objective scholarship in order to subjectively synthesis an authentic remanifestation of a Tradition. This is not simply an act of imitation of the past but a contemporary reawakening viable in the contemporary work. No attempt is made to suggest that the individual using this material will experience what was experienced in the past but it will give them the necessary material to partake of some of that Essential quality without looking towards the past with rosetinted glasses.
If the Hermetic Tradtion or 19th and 20th Century Heremetic influenced magic like the works of the Golden Dawn and Aleister Crowley have an interest for you this book will make an excellent addition to your knowledge base of Typhonian Hermeticism, its practice and its influence.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Don Webb's (and Dr. Flowers') method of research and practice is one of the two most effective methods of magical practice I've encountered in my fifteen years of magical work. This is the method of active engagement with the magical current through research, study and the effort of putting the knowledge into practice. If you're interested in more than armchair theory and the Typhonian current appeals to you, get this book and put it into practice. You will be greatly rewarded for your effort. The methodology detailed in this book will work for any magical current of the reader's interest. This book is currently quite costly on the used market. Hopefully Runa Raven will republish the book so it will be accessible to a greater audience.

Format: Paperback
Since this title has come back into print; I can only say .... "get a copy for yourself!" I've waited over 10 years to get my own personal copy .... "and it was well worth the wait!" If one is looking for a solid foundation that'll build upon Setian/Typhonian philosophy & magic this is the book for you!

Don Webb has done a real service in putting forth these PGM rituals into a clear concise format for personal use. This was a life changing book for me. If you are familiar with Golden Dawn or OTO rituals and ideas, this will get you to the next level. Not to be taken lightly at all. Do proceed with caution but the way of opportunity is fraught with dangers. Definitely for grown up magicians who are looking to evolve.

When I saw how much they have gone up in price is was pissed at first. But then I laughed, this book has already proved to be priceless for me-it secured a new world more to my liking...it is a rare element.
