Praise for the 1st edition of Wormwood Star:
"After reading Wormwood Star, I was left very impressed with Spencer Kansa's treatment of Cameron. To have gone to all the effort he did to provide the public with a compassionate yet balanced, and not gushingly fannish portrayal of such a complicated figure. He walked the fine line of keeping his head out of la-la land and grounded in facts, providing the necessary perspective for the reader, making Cameron's legendary status undeniable and understandable. This story really did need to be told once and for all, so hats off to him for doing it." Zeena Schreck, co-author of Demons of the Flesh: The Complete Guide to Left Hand Path Sex Magic.
"Wormwood Star is a fascinating and very, very well-researched look into Cameron's perplexingly strange life. Crisscrossing the country and tracking down all of the various characters the author spoke to must have been quite a chore and, as a reader and long-time admirer of Cameron's work, I'm grateful for the attention Spencer Kansa paid to detail."
Richard Metzger, Dangerous Minds.com
"Wormwood Star describes a magickal woman and artist, not as a tragedy as is all too tritely easy to do to those who have been allotted the role of a magickal partner, but as a true Babalon. A woman and creative being in her own right who rather than change to the dictates of oppressive society became a defining part of a changing one. Fabulous!"
Charlotte Rodgers, author of The Bloody Sacrifice.
"Wormwood Star is a pulsating account of a vibrant individual. Someonewho lived her life in a magickal way and whose legendary position inoccult annals has been skillfully captured and shared in thiswell-researched bio."
