Mr. Crowley

For those who listen to Black Sabbath, Ozzy, or wanted to get to know the real Mr. Crowley; or dealve into the Black Art, well this is a fair book on both. It also had some close truisms to being a drug addict and the aspects of depending on drugs.

New Pantheon Press Release:

"Diary of A Drug Fiend" is an amazingly well written novel. For those accustomed to "Crowly-speak," you're in for a treat. And particularly for the uninitiated, in this you will find all ever asked from a novel. A wildly entertaining read.
Built upon the foundation of his Thelemic law, the thinly veiled characters delight us as familiar and greatly nuanced personalities. Based largely upon personal experiences, his tale of wild and unrepentant drug use(mainly heroin and cocaine, though he covers them all) chronicles a very humanized, not demonized, path.
Aleister Crowley writes to great detail regarding all facets of drug use--from the phenomena to the rehabilitation.
With intimate characters and beautiful settings, cover to cover, this novel is a rebellious delight!
