Aleister Crowley: The Fire and the Force on Kindle

You may be interested to hear that over the weekend Aleister Crowley: The Fire and the Force came out for the Kindle ebook reader. This book is an exploration of the work of Aleister Crowley by Don Webb published by Rûna-Raven Press.

“Aleister Crowley wrote many works himself, and many works have been written about him. Most of the latter focus on his colorful lifestyle, while others seek to interpret his meta-poetic words in terms of one or another Thelemite orthodoxy. In this volume Don Webb, former High Priest of the Temple of Set, goes beyond either of these approaches. Webb, who has himself made his way along the same arduous initiatory pathways pioneered by the First Beast, here focuses on the initiatory and philosophical meaning of Crowley’s life-work. He does so in a way that can be of personal magical benefit to all who read the book. The text of Webb’s book is divided into two sections: The first is made up of essays originally written for his inner students in the Temple of Set, the second part consists of new writings created exclusively for this book. Throughout Webb guides the reader in a fascinating initiatory journey along the Left Hand Path with ‘Uncle Al,’ like Vergil, at his side.”

Also, you may be curious about an upcoming work by Don Webb in which he’s writing a pestilential commentary to the Book of the Law. I’ll post more about that when I myself know more, but I hear that this new work will mention the Hermetic Library; so I’m certainly curious now if I wasn’t already!
