I am a novelist and writer on the occult. After having written several non-fiction articles for the Journal of the Western Mystery Tradition, in 2009 I came out with my first novel "The Magus." Since then I have written "Opus Secunda" and "Licence To Depart," which make up parts two and three of "The Magus Trilogy," and a number of other works in the series "The Demon Detective and Other Stories."

My latest novel, "Taromancer," was published on Amazon Kindle in 2013, attaining Best-Seller status on the day of its official release. It is available in print from March 1st 2014.

I am also an astrologer, tarot reader and ceremonial magician, and a blogger on all things occult.

I live in Essex, England.

Aleister Crowley
“In this book it is spoken of the Sephiroth and the Paths; of Spirits and Conjurations; of Gods, Spheres, Planes, and many other things which may or may not exist. It is immaterial whether these exist or not. By doing certain things certain results will follow; students are most earnestly warned against attributing objective reality or philosophic validity to any of them.”
